To always be inspiring people to:

  • Always be pushing their physical & emotional comfort level by being adventurous
  • Increase self & world awareness thru new experiences in different lands
  • Find their passion
  • Be humble throughout their own journey

The bullet points above are not to be a rigorous definition what Journey Unknown will be about; but rather a guide for how content will be written to motivate others to not just dream big, but how to fulfill those dreams.

Stepping outside of your comfort zone is something that we believe everyone should do on a daily basis.

Traveling to a place you’ve never been, with accents & languages you’ve never heard, & people you’ve never met is a liberating feeling.

Finding a passion is difficult in today’s society with so much stimulus flowing from cell phones, televisions, and other devices. We feel that everyone should put down their phones & actually get out and try out new things to find their passion. Whether it is eating skewers of chicken hearts, cheering along at a European futbol match, or just riding your bike to a part of town you’ve never been

Being humble is perhaps the most important part of our mission. We feel that no matter where you are or who you interact with, you need to be respectful of their customs & traditions. Treat others how you would like to be treated. Take a day or two on your next trip to reflect on how you have arrived at your destination and what you need to do to keep moving forward.

Journey Unknown was started by myself (Cory Trimm) after realizing that there were a lot of other travel blogs out there focusing on how you can become a world-traveling-nomad-for-less-than-40-dollars-a-day and not really easing you into that lifestyle. Ideally, I want Journey Unknown to inspire someone else to take a chance of going somewhere new.
