To The Curious



Our Curiosity

When we created “To the Curious” as a category of our Discover blog, it was a response to the earliest days of the pandemic. If we couldn’t travel, then our mission was to draw together all of us who share a curiosity about the world and to keep us entertained, enriched and inspired until we could get back out there.

Now that the world has reopened, we’ve learned from you that To the Curious continues to be a repository of storytelling that not only encourages you to travel but also enhances your life. We know this, too: We are all travelers who share an important trait. We want to explore places in a way that illuminates history, reveals secrets and celebrates the thrill of discovery.

And curiosity plays a huge role.

The truths we discover as we travel are the fulfillment of the promise of our journey. Each of us is singular, but our quest unites us.

Stay curious.
