Journeys often begin with a curious intrigue that beckons exploration. For many, the overwhelming draw of the unfamiliar can be too exciting to resist. For some, it is the thirst to discover or learn something new that drives them. And for others, embarking on a journey marks the beginning of a change or challenge.

Not all journeys require us to venture far; many of our most momentous feats begin with just a simple resolution. In this volume, we are inspired by those who courageously take on new challenges, whether epic or everyday. We hear stories of personal conquest and growth, and learn that it's never too late to undertake a new chapter.

It is rarely our destination that shapes us most, and some of life's most enriching adventures present themselves when least expected, often with unforeseen detours along the way. Influenced by our experiences and interactions with others, our journeys can redefine our ways of seeing and open us up to different ways of life.
