What is the best part of traveling around the world? Isn’t it the people we met more than the sites we visited, or the mountains we climbed? People from every country and culture make our experiences lasting. Without the interaction with the locals, we’d never learn the special places and the uniqueness of a cultural that only locals share. We get enriched by the people we meet when we accept the cultural differences; learn their customs and cultural norms; and if possible learn their language before we go. Our perspectives of another country irrevocably change. Best of all, we become friends and build cultural and environmental awareness.
FriendshipForce is an organization that offers avenues to explore new countries and culture at a personal level with signature programs of home hospitality with local hosts. Hosts around the world welcome visitors into their culture with shared meals, conversations, and inside information on the best sights and experiences of their region.
