"Francis opened her novel, wondering if, now, the bound pages had traveled further than the stories of travel between the covers. She quickly released that thought, for with travel, quantity has little meaning." - Excerpt from a draft of the novel, Never Always, by Christine
What do love, books, and travel have in common? All require openness and offer possibilities of things you could neither do nor imagine before.
So how do we, at Alpha Charlie Travel, define ourselves? How can we define a living, ever-evolving idea? How can we define ourselves when we are like pirates, taking a little bit of booty from everyone we like and making it our own (giving credit where credit is due, of course - very important!)?
We are leaders. We are not the leaders of the travel industry. We are leaders in the travel industry. We follow the wisdom of locals whose strength and knowledge complement our own gaps. We are constantly learning. We take risks, getting outside of our comfort zone. We take care of ourselves, each other, and our community. We give back.
We operate in the realm of possibility. As a pilot and an aircraft mechanic, we are accustomed to probability. But when we travel, we stretch ourselves. We appreciate a challenge.
You could say we are actually in the transportation industry, because we transport ideas and stories. We share the stories of the people we meet, stories that may otherwise die, untold. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we live our lessons.
