Our group is an incredible tribe of travel passionate individuals who love the company and companionship of other like-minded travelers. Traveling together, experiencing new things with others is all part of the journey. The foundation of this group is built on a positive mindset and amazing travel experiences.
Founded Nov 8 2012 with the mission of having like-minded individuals travel and experience this beautiful world together. We are a very young organization of passionate travelers. We’ve had over 93% growth from 2013 to 2014. Our community is built on relationships and local interaction to create a bond in an organization like no other. Our core values are: Passion. People. Positive. Purpose. We strictly hold these core values to heart, as they created the foundation that was established from day one. We support responsible travel and tourism.
Our goal is to enrich lives; both ours –and the lives of others.
WE’RE EXPLORERS AT HEART – We travel together as a group, then scatter to explore, then congregate back together and continue on and do it all over again. That is way we make sure every itinerary has enough free time built in so that you can explore on your own and do your own thing as well. Some group activities, but usually more free time so you can explore on your own or with a smaller group of members within the group if you want to.
AUTHENTIC, LOCAL EXPERIENCES – When we can, we search out activities and local dining options to enhance our journey to be an authentic experience. We understand that dining at authentic restaurants, enjoying some street food, buying handicrafts, all goes directly into the pockets of the locals, not a large corporation. When we travel, we like to experience what’s around us. We like to do things the locals do. That is why many members often become Facebook friends with the locals they meet along the way.
ETHICAL TRAVEL – We do not support people and businesses that participate in unethical treatment of animals and people. We strive to be a green organization and we produce as little paper as possible. All of our local trips and activities are done via e-docs, no tickets are produced. When we are participating in natural water activities such as snorkeling, we encourage all participants to use environmentally friendly sunscreen and body products.
SOCIAL TRAVEL – Everyone, and we mean everyone, is welcome and we go above and beyond to make sure that happens. We stress the importance of a positive mindset. We use social media and other social platforms to bring like-minded people together to do social things: travel. Often times members will create amazing friendships with other members who they’ve just met on a trip.
“There are those of us who like to venture to the unexplored to see the beauty in the strange and unknown. Those of us who go out there with a sense of wonder bridging worlds cultivating our curiosity and finding delight in our differences. If you’re one of us, and you want to explore more of this great planet, we’re ready to take you there. It’s time. Widen your world.” Turkish Airlines Ad.
