This journey is called Trekking the Planet. It is a 400-day, around-the-world trip to raise geography education awareness. We plan to visit six continents and approximately 50 countries. During the time we are away we plan to trek to some of the most remote and unspoiled places in the world. We will be traveling mostly on the ground by land and sea, minimizing flights. By visiting places of cultural and natural significance, our hope is to instill a greater awareness and curiosity about the world in as many young people as possible.

We plan to engage students by providing enrichment materials: sixty (60) four-page weekly education module overviews (that correspond to where we will be) that use the framework of the Geography Standards of 1994 developed by the US National Council for Geographic Education. In addition, we plan to send out weekly supplemental emails with our impressions during our journey, as well as images and video from the road.

Our materials are totally FREE to educators, kids and parents. Become a subscriber to receive our pre trip monthly newsletters and free weekly geography education modules during our journey. Non-Educators can also follow our trip by subscribing to our newsletter.
