anticipation is skyrocketing. Let's take a moment to reflect on why
soccer, or football, is one of the world's biggest unifiers. This year,
the tournament will have billions of viewers and millions at the
stadiums, the most watched event of all time.

Get inspired by these next world citizens and traveling filmmakers. Each one of these adventurous Tripfilms members took a year (or more) to travel around the globe and learn first-hand, what this world, and themselves, are made of. Some backpacked, some traveled with friends or lovers and others went solo, but all of them truly had the time of their lives.

The squat toilet isn’t really a toilet, as we in the West understand the word. The “squat” portion of the name is accurate, but the “toilet” is really just a hole in the floor into which you poop, then pour in some water as a chaser. I believe they call it a toilet because “poop hole” was already trademarked. Drawing upon my experiences traveling through India, I’d like to share with you my hard-won tips and tricks for doing your business in the developing world.…

We never knew what we didn’t have.
We enjoy America’s moniker of ‘melting pot’ as a feature that distinguishes us from other places. It seems a great American pastime to find this way or that way to distinguish ourselves, especially in areas of our obvious superiority, and one area of that superiority is in our lack of a defining culture. Oh, there are those who wax poetically about the multiculturalism of this great country and we all… Continue
