My name is Rand Blimes. I have a job I love (teaching political science at BYU-Hawaii), a family I adore, and a never-ending desire to see as much of the world as I possibly can. I started the Because Travel Blog to explore the cultural, physical, psychological, social, and spiritual effects of travel . . . and to share some great stories and photographs.
