Travel Locations: Bhutan, Tibet, Japan, Turkey, Cambodia, India, Russia, China

Travel objectives: Joe’s pilgrimage will entail traveling throughout Asia to places of cultural and spiritual significance. His journey will span up to 12 countries including Bhutan, Tibet, Japan, Turkey, Cambodia, India, Russia and China. The sacred sites he plans to visit were erected by the will of people influenced by their own forms of spirituality. These elaborate monuments hold deep meaning to these cultures. Spirituality is the process of personal transformation; this trip will be Joe’s spirituality.
