The Boundless Photo Safari team is made up of people who love photography, who love traveling, and who love the experience and joy of traveling! When we travel we not only learn about other cultures but we get to know ourselves and how we belong to a global community.

Tourists don't know where they've been, travelers don't know where they're going.

---Paul Theroux
