Spend just a few minutes with Ashish Sanghrajka, president of Big Five Tours & Expeditions, and you clearly see his is driven by passion. This native-born Kenyan began to learn about the family travel company at an early age. As a child, he saw firsthand the value of customer relationships when clients often dined with his family in their Nairobi home. In the mid-1980s, his family relocated to New York, and later Florida. Sanghrajka attended the University of Arizona in Tucson, graduating with a degree in political science, with a special focus on international economics. In Charles Schwab's Capital Markets Division, he worked as an economic analyst and trainer. But that passion for travel resurfaced, and he formally joined the family business, Big Five, in 2002. Six years later, he became president of the luxury travel his father founded in1973 in Nairobi, Kenya.

"The event alone does not create a sense of vulnerability," said Ashish Sanghrajka, president of Big Five Tours. "However the fact that another event has taken place after the devastation in November is what makes this stand out more. "When the November attacks happened, we posted a blog called 'Fear is not Sustainable and Neither is Aggression' in which we urged the world to think about understanding who we are fighting, before we start assigning blame. Sadly this is still being done backwards. Just look at the politicians' public statements this morning." While Big Five does not offer tours to the affected area this time, the company is witnessing a shift in demand over time in relation to all the attacks. "From a standpoint of travelers, the desire to travel has not gone dark," said Sanghrajka, "rather it is the destinations they are choosing. After 9/11, the shift was to very last-minute travel. While that still exists, the long-term travel plans have not dissipated as would usually be the case in times of distress." And then there is the effect on individuals. In the case of Sanghrajka, a Kenyan American of Indian ancestry, what happens in Europe can unfortunately affect life in America. "From a personal standpoint, the most direct effect I expect is more racial profiling on me and my family while in airports and in certain parts of the country," he said.
