So why "My Safiri"?

In Swahili, “safiri” is the word for travel. It is also the word for adventure. It is a word that connotes excitement, with a ball in the pit of your stomach, your heart pounding as you step off a plane in a whole new world. A word whose sound tells you that you’ve left the familiar far away. It is from a language that celebrates the new, with reverence for the old; a language infused with the globalization of everything. I hope to live each and every day of my life in search of the greatest safiri yet, with the full knowledge that every adventure is the greatest to date.
