Culture Quest – Discover Your World

“I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible…”   Mahatma Gandhi
“If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse gift will find a fitting place.”   Margaret Mead
“Every age, every culture, every custom and tradition has its own character, its own weakness and its own strength, its beauties and cruelties; it accepts certain sufferings as matters of course, puts up patiently with certain evils. Human life is reduced to real suffering, to hell, only when two ages, two cultures and religions overlap.”   Herman Hesse
“Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit.”   Jawaharlal Nehru


1 Life 196 Countries is accepting submissions. Please join me in an attempt to create a database of one-stop shopping (so to speak) of Cultural Stories and relevant information travelers and immigrants alike can use to educate themselves on a specific Country regarding cultural etiquette, differences and expectations before they head out on their next adventure or relocate! Please submit today by clicking on the Submissions category on the right, it is in alphabetical order so you will have to scroll down. We need to know what you know!

1 Life – 196 Countries was developed by Kelly Little as a medium to share, educate, explore and appreciate the social threads woven into the fabric of the human collective; a mission to knit together our World Cultures and Social Borders. This is a resting place, a musing place and a gathering place. It is a Culture Quest – To Discover our World.

It is through this site we can meet each other, get to know one another and feel comfortable and safe doing so! One of the most important obstacles both immigrants and tourists alike face is cultural differences. Together, we can bridge that gap!

I am a writer, a photo journalist, an explorer; a traveler and social scientist. If I could sum myself up, it would be through the quotes above and the belief that, “We are nothing more than the culture we experience, learn from and share. Travel is not only about the adventure we seek, it’s foundation rests in the hands of the people we meet.” Kelly Little


If you are a Cultural Organization or Service Provider, have something unique and original you wish your world to know but unable to undertake the project yourself, are a Destination Provider of any sort, Tourism Board or Magazine then I would love to speak with you. I am receptive to sponsored service reviews related to travel such as hotels, tours and expeditions, and will consider  contracted assignments both locally and abroad. A former News Paper Reporter turned freelance. 
 Please send me an email regarding your needs; I will be happy to speak with you more to determine how we can work together.  
 *License Usage for my own personal blog articles is also a possibility.
