Catherine Riney – Our World Travel Logs (printed travel logs and notebooks)
After 20 years in business management, Riney decided to act on her idea last year. “I’ve lived in three different countries and I do feel like a citizen of the world,” she says.

I believe everyone can make a difference, however small.”
