Our first pioneers!

Here are the courageous souls who have said ‘YES’ to become a pioneer journeyer with us this summer!

“Life is a journey and learning to live as a “journeyer” is the key to really answer many of the questions that will give sense to my existence. Travel is my passion, by living meaningful experiences I discover who I really am, what I am looking for and where do I belong… this is why I want to be part of the Journey Network and be a traveler Pioneer in this new experience waiting to share it with other souls like me. Lets start the Quest!”
“I am full of questions – full of spirit – uncertain about my life purpose – positive about the future. I would love to go to quite places to hear my inner self, and I also want to go to crowded places to ask people about their life purpose, to gain perspective, to even be the spark in somebody else’s life. I want to travel free of expectations (especially of my own).”
“Having recently finished my studies it’s the right time to finish this life chapter. With an orientation journey the TJN offers I want to learn what to achieve and focus on in the post student life time. As an addicted walker with a passion for traveling off the beaten track and an interest in creative surviving I’m ready to get lost and come back, fail and succeed, fall and stand up. Life is all about experiments and experience. TJN gives me this opportunity and the chance to share with like-minded guys and gals. Kudos!”
“I see art as life and life as art. What I can learn is what kinds of brushes and stiles there are. I can learn how they are used. Then I can put the effort into painting a picture. But only at the moment I am couragous to be myself, let the force behind me, so trust and power may unfold the picture will reveal itself. The journey network is a step in the pocess of becoming myself. What I love about the network is that we have a boundary to other travelers on the same route, we will start and end a chapter in our lifes together – a chapter no school or university can teach us. That makes it beautiful!”
“I have so many fundamental questions like ‘what am I really here for?’. That makes me see my whole life as a quest and I would like to share my experiences with others while we´re all on our journeys, which can get quite tough somtimes. Helping and learning from each other with joy, keep on going the whole way and celebrating life, is what I´m looking for.”
“I just recently realized that I really want to be travelling more, for some reason I always was afraid as if something, or someone held me back. With this opportunity in hand I want to overcome the boundaries I had set for me, find a way back to myself and figure out what I want to do with my life. I want to meet people who are looking for similar solutions, who are driven by the same calling, I want people I can truly connect to and make the world a better place with. This Quest has only just begun and the Journey Network is a perfect tool for this Adventure.”
“Life is about experiences and adventures. Since I feel there is still so much to learn, I am taking a gap year from university to explore new ideas and to meet new people. I stopped creative writing years ago and I think this journey would be a great time to start again – let’s see if I still have it in me. The question I want to answer on my journey is: What makes unique people so different? Adventures, here I come!”

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice--
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do--
determined to save
the only life you could save.
