Travel Outward was started in the summer of 2002 by Laurence Constable and Harman Stinson, long-time friends and travelers, who share an interest in global cultures, ecology, and world affairs, as well as adventure travel and exploration. Harman's travels have taken him through the Caribbean, and across the United States and Europe. He has seen far off places such as Turkey, the Greek Isles, and the Ukraine. While traveling he has climbed extensively in the Sierra Nevada and skied throughout the western U.S. His sailing experiences have taken him from the coast of Florida all the way Laurence started traveling as a child, beginning with summer trips with his family to Lake Temagami in northern Ontario. He has since motorcycled the width of the United States, photographed big game in South Africa, and rafted from the interior of the Yukon Territory to the Alaskan coast. His European experience has taken him around the continent from Paris to Prague, and throughout the British Isles. Over the years, we have noticed a void in the online publishing market when it comes to understanding world culture, history, and the environment. Our goals include providing you with great writing and photographs of destinations that range from your back yard to the top of Mount Everest. We hope the articles, pictures, and information in these pages inspire you to get out there and see what's going on, then come back and tell us all about it! We encourage reader feedback. If you have something to say, please drop us a line. In the meantime, travel outward and see what you find. At Travel Outward we are proud of our dedication and we have recieved awards in honor of our accomplishments, check them out here.
