"My dad is the reason I love to travel so much. The Alspaughs had been situated in the same county in NC for hundreds of years. He got up and left, and he saw the world. He taught me that there is something beautiful about every culture and has always encouraged me to travel since I was very young. His openness and view on humanity are what have kept me from becoming a complete cynic."
-Matt Alspaugh (Blackbird Ballard, Personal Shopper)
