What I Learned From Visiting Every Country in the World
Drew explains the many life lessons that he's picked up from visiting all 197 countries in the world, mostly revolving around the beauty of humanity. Drew will make you realize how connected all 7.8 billion of us humans are, no matter your race, wealth, gender, ethnicity, beliefs or sexual orientation. Even in the most far away corners of the world, Drew has connected with others who have the same wants and needs as him and his stories will leave you feeling inspired.
The World is Safer Than You Think
After meeting eye-to-eye with tens of thousands of people from every corner of the globe, Drew will share why he strongly believes that 99.9% of people in our world are kind, friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately, it's the 0.1% that you hear about on the news that makes us all live in fear -- but we need to learn from hands-on experience, not perception from our peers.
Inspiring Travel Stories from a Man Who Has Visited Every Country
Drew believes that the best moments in life come from spontaneous experiences, and therefore he is an advocate for others to be spontaneous. His travel style is unique in which he randomly meets locals and relies on their kindness to guide him around their country. But you don't need to go to far away places like New Zealand, Namibia or Nicaragua to have these moments -- they can happen right in your backyard. In this presentation, Drew shares the specific life changing experiences that he's had around the world, and it will leave audience members feeling inspired.
Why You Should Travel More
As Drew says, travel is the best education that one can get. In fact, he learned more from his journeys than from any textbook throughout college. Drew shows us how traveling makes us wiser -- it teaches us about history, economics (how the world works) and how to respect other cultures. Traveling gives us empathy and makes us appreciate where we came from. The bottom line is that international travel makes you a better, more well-rounded person and Drew highly recommends everyone to do it -- even if it means exploring your next-door nation.
