Our Favorite Team Photos of 2019

Each year, Travel Beyond sends our team members on educational trips to the destinations where we plan travel. As we look back on the dozens of 2019 staff trips, we asked our team to submit their favorite trip photos from their past year, and we loved looking through the collection.

From wildlife headshots to sweeping landscapes to beaming smiles at world-famous landmarks, we’re again reminded that each traveler has a different view of each location. What a beautiful experience, to view the world from another’s lens.
