Best Cultural Destinations' Back Story
I'm Meg Pier, founder & editor of BCD. I believe people are culture, and that connection is the destination. And how are we transported on this journey? With stories, the same way humanity has made sense of life and connected with each other since Neolithic man created cave art. Storytelling is in our DNA. For a decade, I have been asking people around the world to tell me their stories. As I listen, I connect--with them, their culture, myself, and the Universe.
It's a privilege to present to you the compelling and heart-warming life experiences and cultural traditions of the hundreds of people featured on these pages. BCD is devoted to sharing rich, expansive narratives that have real meaning. We all matter, we each have an incredible story, and everyone has something to teach us. Have fun exploring BCD and enjoy whatever lesson serendipity presents! I promise that your day--and your life--will be enriched!
We all have a story about what drives us. Here's mine. Maybe you'll relate!
