About Us

Our goal at Discover Discomfort is to help people of different cultures understand one another through immersive educational travel.

We go to places where we want to understand everyday people better and we study languages, arts, and culture. So far we’ve learned Egyptian Arabic in Egypt, spent time in Israel/Palestine, studied Swahili, and gone running in Kenya. Coming soon: Colombia for (more) Spanish and Latin dancing, plus “Going Home” to understand our own heritage.
