Did you know that National Tourist Appreciation Day is celebrated in the United States on May 6th and that this day falls during the National Travel and Tourism week?

Travel Apps To Spice Up Your JourneyThe U.S. travel industry celebrated this week to help promote travel to and within the United States. In 2012, the U.S. Travel Association launched a multi-year advocacy and awareness campaign called “Travel Effect.” Despite the size and positive impact of the U.S. Travel industry, the act of traveling has yet to be seen as an essential part of our lives, businesses or economy. The Travel Effect campaign reverses that thinking and proves that the travel experience and the travel industry as a whole actually have a measurable and purposeful impact. The Travel Effect proves through new and original research the economic, societal, business and personal benefits of travel, demonstrating the real truth behind the “hidden” impacts that travel can have on us all.

We, at CCI Greenheart, believe that travel is more than any single adventure; it is a way of life.

Everyone has their own reasons for becoming a traveler. Whether you travel abroad with Greenheart Travel or participate in one of our programs in the U.S., get creative about your travels. Explore and participate. Interact and make friends. Take personal time to build connections.  Whatever way you choose, make a first step and that small step may be the beginning of a great journey; journey to expand the understanding of the world and potentially change your life forever.

The CCI Greenheart Work and Travel team wishes all our participants safe and happy travels. Now go find your adventure!
