Lauryn and Josh "Go Nomad" on their GoNOMAD ALTERNATIVE ADVENTURE
on a fantastic voyage!
In June, 2002, GoNOMAD Founder and Senior Editor, Lauryn Axelrod,
took off on a GoNOMAD ALTERNATIVE ADVENTURE
a fantastic, year-long journey that took her and her 12-year old
son, Joshua, from the jungles of Asia to the savannahs of Africa, from
the museums of Europe to the beaches of the South Pacific, and more.
was no ordinary around-the world trip: well beyond sightseeing
(OK, some sightseeing), Lauryn and Josh sought out new alternative
destinations, lodgings, tours, transports, activities, and learning and
volunteer opportunities to bring to GoNOMAD readers!
