Explorations of the offbeat, off the beaten path, overlooked and forgotten

Create Your Own Journey: Individual


Journeys Into was started based on an individual journey of discovery.

Long a fan of Charles Kuralt (“On The Road”) and Lake Wobegon (from Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion),  Eric Model often sought, without success , to embark on journeys of discovery  – finding resources lacking to help plan “his kind of trip”. What eventually resulted was a series of vast data-base offerings:  festivals/events, “Accommodations with a personal touch” (quaint B&B’s & Inns), roadside food, other places to see nearby, and background readings to enhance the trip. Over time, these data-bases became the foundation for what has become Journeys Into and its focus on empowering individuals to create and embark on their own journeys of discovery.

So, we’ve got a good idea what you might be looking for – we’ve  been there ourselves.

With this in mind, we share with you a number of ways in which you can start to journey – “the Journeys into”.


Thinking of taking a trip ? Your own journey of exploration and discovery?

We can help. We have resources and tools for individual travelers as well as those seeking a group travel experience. They can be found through our Travel and Touring Center as well through a subscription to Journeys Into.


Journeycast Creation

Create your own narrative about a journey of discovery.

The world is changing and so are the ways in which we interact and engage with one another.  Traditionally messages and ways of mobilizing came from the top.  Now all of us can have a greater role in identifying, crafting and taking control of our stories so we can accomplish our goals and what needs to be done. You don’t have to be on the radio or television to be a journeycaster  anymore. A Journeycast is a great way to get your story out there in an informative and entertaining way.

If you have a story that you think is ready to be a Journeycast on radio and elsewhere and want to share it, a Journeycast is a great way.

If your story is ready, we are ready to tell it on the radio, TV or online. If you are not we can help you identify your story and passion and make it ready to share with the world as a journeycast.
