These Dusty Shoes is a resource for the culturally curious and adventurous spirits. We are exploring the globe getting our #wonderfix and hope to inspire you to do the same. Mark Twain said, “Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all of one’s lifetime.”  - How true we find this to be. The more we travel, the more we learn about other cultures, the more we see of other landscapes, the more conversations we hold with our worldly neighbors; the more we find our hearts and souls expanding with a greater understanding of the human spirit.  We invite you to come along.

Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.
— Gustave Flaubert
