World Footprints is a socially minded travel media company devoted to bridging differences, capturing the culture of a destination and inspiring travel.   World Footprints shares travel stories and offers perspectives that go beyond the destination and touch the heart.

Whether it’s a little known aspect of a country’s culture or a social cause close to their hearts, travel journalists Tonya and Ian Fitzpatrick seek to share stories that spark curiosity and shift points of view. The Fitzpatricks’ many travel experiences typically leave a single impression -- no matter where one lives, the language spoken or the customs practiced – people are people. World Footprints was created to promote a respect and understanding of people and their differences, and to inspire travel outside their own environment.
