We truly hope that our blog readers have had as much fun reflecting on the past 10 years as we have.  Through these pictures we’ve been able to show how Journeys Within embodies the slogan “Six Countries, One Team, Countless Experiences”. Thank you for taking the time to share these memories with us – here’s to the countless experiences over the next 10 years!

What year did join Team Journeys Within?: 


What were your thoughts of the company that first year?: 

I thought that this was a great opportunity to get into an International Company that still operates with the efficiency and comradery of a small company.  I really am interested in different people and cultures and I was so excited at the new adventure that Journeys Within presented.

What were your thoughts of the company that first year?:

Over the year I have learned that what makes this company special is definitely the amazing cast of character we have working together. Everyone who works at Journeys Within, whether in California or on the ground in Southeast Asia is unique, passionate and giving of themselves. It makes for a great work environment and an unbelievable product.
