Hi beautiful people!

My name is Devi and I'm a poet / touring cyclist / storyteller from Boston, USA, currently traveling the world by bicycle and by boat to collect 1,001 stories from people I meet about water and climate change.



(this is the audio recorder that I use) 


I recently wrote about my work for the Guardian's bike blog -- check it out! 
http://www.theguardian.com/environment/bike-blog/2...



I have given up flying to reduce my environmental footprint and travel entirely over land and over sea.

After a year of travel, I have collected 417 stories – and counting – audio recordings from people I meet. The plan is to make a map on a website where you can click on a point and listen to a story someone has told me from that place.



I had the huge privilege of starting this project in September 2014 with support from a Gardner & Shaw Postgraduate Traveling Fellowship from Harvard for a year of “purposeful wandering.” I’m at the point where I need your support.

What will your support go towards?
bike repairs, food, internet, visa fees, ocean crossings, and the odds and ends I need to keep me going on the road 





How it works:
You pledge a set amount to give per month – enter it to the box at the upper left of this page. 

As a thank you for your patronage, you’ll get access to photos / videos / poems / postcards handwritten by me that won’t be posted anywhere else. The whole description of these awesome things is below. <3  



If you like my writing / photography and want me to make more, please consider becoming my patron. I have been working tirelessly for the last year to collect stories about water and climate change while traveling the world without flying, and I would love for you to be a part of that.

Thank you for being on this journey with me. Welcome.
