Common threads form the fabric of Journey. Around each thread we cultivate vibrant communities of people who support, motivate, inspire, and push one another toward the things that matter.
With Journey, the social currency is your output—the cool things you create and do and the support you give others—not how you look in a bikini. Whatever your journey, from skydiving to knitting and everything in between, join a social network that helps you get where you want to go and savor the moments along the way.
