National Geographic & Intelligent Travel

Booker Travels continues with National Geographic

Congratulations to Booker for being named TRAVELER OF THE YEAR BY NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELER MAGAZINE!! This inaugural award celebrates the accomplishments of ten travelers around the globe who are visiting far-flung places and doing astonishing things. At fifteen years old, Booker is the youngest of the winners and the only teenage traveler.

The honorees for 2012 are boundary breakers, who explore the world with passion and purpose, inspire others to expand their horizons, ask big questions and seek new answers.

“We sifted through hundreds of nominations to pick world-shaking people on innovative missions,” said George Stone, contributing editor of National Geographic Traveler. “Each of these dedicated voluntourists, green-minded adventurers and culture-embracing pilgrims reminds us that we have the power to reach beyond the bubble of our daily lives, learn from locals in far-flung places and make a difference both around the world and in our own neighborhoods.”
