According to the Oxford Online Dictionary, the word journey has two meanings.1 First, “an act of travelling from one place to another,” a meaning that conveys a sense of movement, the physical journey itself, and a deliberate trip or modern-day pilgrimage from one locale to a destination. Second, journey can mean “a long and often difficult process of personal change and development,” though equally taken to mean processes of collective change at organizational levels. In this paper, I explore my sense of journey with regard to work being undertaken to better address the interconnectivity of cultural and natural heritage at global, national, and local levels of heritage management and practice. In doing so, I draw on both meanings of the word journey: that is, my perspectives as transformed by processes of personal and collective journeying and informed by global travel.
