A number of months ago an opportunity came across my desk to take a trip to the Dominican Republic. It was a cruise with a new company, Fathom. What intrigued me about Fathom, and the trip, was the fact they focus on impact travel, or travel with a purpose. An underlying reason for much of our family travel has been about educating our children, learning about other cultures, and exposing them to life outside our “bubble”. I thought Fathom would give us these things as well as an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others, and I am happy to report, it did that and much more.
