Around the World with TPI

Carl travel blog
For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for traveling and exploring the world. Perhaps it started as a young boy with the fuzzy, little Koala bear that sat at my bedside given to me by family friends living in Australia. Or maybe it was the month long trips around Canada with my parents and two brothers as we traveled by station wagon, with trailer in tow, canoes on the roof and bicycles on the back venturing from coast to coast across our great country. Whatever it was, it has led me a career in the travel industry, on many explorations worldwide and now to the ultimate one year of travel and adventure!

As the Director of Marketing with Travel Professionals International (TPI) I view all my travels from 2 perspectives; the first for my personal pleasure and enjoyment and the second from a business perspective thinking about TPI Travel Consultants and their clients. I am fortunate enough to be able to secure a one year leave of absence from my position - call it a vacation, a sabbatical, research or as I joke - my maternity leave - the world is my baby!

For 12 months my partner and I are planning on venturing out to about 30 different countries around the world primarily in Europe, Africa, South East Asia and the South Pacific. Our departure date is Sept 09, 2005 and we return exactly a year later back to home in Toronto.

I believe the world is meant to be explored and experienced, history relived and new friends and acquaintances met. As famous explorer Mark Twain put it in my favourite travel quote :

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

So, welcome to my TPI Travel Journal! It will be an ongoing journal so please come back and visit often. I hope you enjoy reading my entries, viewing my pictures and that it inspires you to take the plunge and book your dream trip and adventure.

Best Regards,
Carl Henderson
