Professional Nomads is proud to announce the first installment in the reader-submission photo journal series, “More Than a Tourist!”
You showed us that ProNo readers deeply value authentic travel experiences with cross-cultural connections. Beyond manicured tourism and away from the guise of business, political, and religious agendas, lies the stuff that genuine connections are made of: people. From transplants, to cultural exchange programs, to befriending locals abroad, the ProNos featured in this series each experienced genuine human connection that still resonates today.
Perhaps no one’s story echoes as loudly as Becky Kusar’s. Becky currently lives as “more than a tourist” in St. Thomas. Her photo journal invites us to understand her meaningful progression from tourist, to outsider, to local, and sets the standard for the rest of the series.
We’ll continue posting new photo journals every other day for the next two weeks so check back Wednesday, June 3rd, for the next installment. Better yet, click “follow” from the sidebar and we’ll help you remember!
