“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world, you change things slightly; you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel —leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks — on your body or on your heart — are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.” — Anthony Bourdain. Our intrepid authors share their own life-changing journeys.

“Perjalanan mengubahmu. Saat dirimu menjalani hidup ini dan dunia ini, dirimu mengubah sesuatu, meninggalkan jejak-jejak kecil. Dan sebagai imbalannya, kehidupan — dan perjalanan — meninggalkan jejak padamu. Biasanya, jejak-jejak itu — menempel pada tubuh dan hatimu — begitu indah. Namun, kadang itu menyakitkan.” -Anthony Bourdain. Penulis pemberani kami akan berbagi cerita perjalanan yang telah mengubah hidup mereka.
