The Peace Corps has made some exciting new changes to render the distinguished program even more attractive for motivated volunteers by emphasizing diversity and flexibility. Transitions Abroad is very excited that the Director granted us time to speak to her regarding improvements to a volunteer program that has helped so many people in diverse locations worldwide. Also impressive to us is the enormous success of returned volunteers as leaders in various fields.

Story
Tagline
Editor in Chief of TransitionsAbroad.com (a Travel, Study, Volunteer, Work, Living abroad online publication founded in 1977 by my late father, Dr. Clay Hubbs).
Introduction
Extensive travel/living/study abroad experience, but prefer to take travel slow and savor life rather than counting the many countries I have lived in or visited. Lover of life, literature, music, most forms of art, great food, comedy, with aesthetics as a religion. For more, if interested, see my bio.

Follow and see the www.TransitionsAbroad.com Google+ page for more of my posts related to  travel if interested.
Bragging rights
Proud to be the son of the two best read, well-traveled. coolest, and most empathetic of parents I have ever met. Professors only in name, lovers of great literature and conversation. I have met so many Nobel prize winners and other famous writers/artists through them in my youth I lost count. Traveled more around the world at a young age than most have or will in their entire lives thanks to parents and my own travel bug. See bio at: http://www.transitionsabroad.com/information/media/gregory_hubbs_bio.shtml.
