Our Logo

We adopted an snail with the world as its shell for our logo to symbolize the Sojourner Tours travel philosophy.  A sojourner travels at a leisurely pace and is at home in the world, frequently settling down to set up temporary residence and enjoy the local food throughout a lifetime of exploration.  Compared to similar creatures like turtles, the gastropod is particularly fitting because its name evokes a traveling gastronome: snails are part of the taxonomic class Gastropoda which is ancient Greek for “stomach-foot”.  On tours, sojourners actively walk around to see the sights and engage in culinary tourism by eating regional delicacies in the finest and most genuine local restaurants.  Finally, substituting the world for the shell not only signifies that sojourners are world citizens but also indicates that they are conscientious travelers: a sojourner doesn’t have “the weight of world on its shoulders” but does have a stake in maintaining the world in which they live.  (If you’d like to learn more about us, this information appears on our website in the “About” section where we also talk about our company’s origins and commitment to local communities and sustainability.  Check it out: http://www.sojournertours.com/about-sojourner-tours/)
