SeeCurrents® was founded by Pat Davis, an “island girl” who loves to read about and experience cultures around the world.
As a young adult and later as a nonprofit executive, her lifelong goal to “travel to six of the seven continents” seemed out of reach so she satisfied her curiosity about the world through international fiction and foreign films.
SeeCurrents was borne out of a conversation with a world-traveling relative who fawned over famous world capitals but quickly dismissed suggestions to check out a few historical and cultural treasures during his next visit to his island home.
Determined to help highlight the sometimes overlooked cultural assets of island nations around the world, she decided in July 2018 to build a website where travelers could search for culturally-immersive activities, attractions, local restaurants, museums, and events.
Many late nights were spent building and populating the database that drives the site’s search results, writing posts, and partnering with freelance web developer extraordinaire B Depay on design and function.
We have a long way to go to but we hope SeeCurrents gives you the tools to deepen cultural immersion and event-based travel plans the next time you visit an island so you can #GoBeyondTheBeach.
