In January of 2011 WalknTalk founder Nathan Minnehan began selling his handmade leather journals at a street fair in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  He originally began his craft with a canvas leather backpack he spent three years stitching in college.  Believing that exchange students change the world he decided to forge his brand's mission with the promotion of the cause that changed his life forever by donating a dollar from each journal sale to student exchange.  In 2007-2008 Nathan lived in Prague Czech Republic where he bonded with his lifelong Czech friends.  They have since been reunited in Prague almost every New Year's Eve, travelled across the United States together in a truck they bought for one hundred dollars, and bounced around the southern hemisphere following the traveling spirit that first brought them together.
