Minnesota Globetrotters

Four years ago, then-newlyweds Katie Diederichs and Ben Zweber quit their full-time jobs, loaded up a backpack each and boarded a cheap flight to Colombia. Their plan was to spend three months backpacking throughout South America, but even now, their adventure has yet to really end. Katie and Ben have spent the last several years traveling across the world, and though they realize the nomadic life might not be for everyone, they’re confident that affordable—and, more importantly, sustainable—adventures are possible, even on a tight budget.


Local Travel Agency Specializes in Trips to Africa

Craig Beal likes to say the most dangerous part of an African safari is the drive down Interstate 494 to get to the MSP airport. As the owner of Travel Beyond, a Wayzata-based luxury travel consultancy and agency, Beal is an old hand at safaris. His agency is one of a handful worldwide that specialize in planning non-hunting safaris in southern and eastern Africa.

The agency was recently honored by the influential Travel+Leisure magazine, which named it a top 10 safari outfitter.
