About Culture Trekking Values and Core Mission
The whole goal of my creation in the Culture Trekking website and community is to inspire people on the inside to better explore the outside. I do this through highlighting the cultural connection through stories of locals, encouraging Culture Trekkers to push past their internal boundaries, engage in sustainable adventure they thought they couldn't do before, and to use art as a way to express the thoughts and feelings they may be too afraid to use words to do.

Culture Trekker Audience
My typical reader/follower is a male or female between the age of 25-45 with a median household income of 50,000 a year.
Many of my followers (62%) are from the United States, and secondly from United Kingdom, Canada, Australia.
They are young adventurous professionals who don’t like spending big on hotels, because experiences mean more than material things to them. They passionately support those things that represent sustainable and responsible tourism. Every once in a while they like to splurge if it is an off the beaten path destination or meaningful food experience where you can connect with the chefs with a story.
They crave traveling with their dogs, scuba diving in all corners of the earth, and love a good dose of Adrenalin every now and then. They want to capture nature's beauty through photos, and love to see beauty between the lines among the contrasts of life.
