HAPPY NEW DECADE! I can’t explain how thrilled I am to welcome all that is new and share the long list of group trips. I had a serious case of the Holiday Blues this year and when I heard a dear friend passed on Christmas Eve I wanted to do nothing more than snuggle up in my comfy hostel bed in Bangkok and binge-watch Netflix. So that’s exactly what I did, along with treating myself to a few Thai massages.
I’ve been plotting and planning for months securing some great group trips and events for the year and I’m eager to share them with you! I get so much joy out of connecting with you in real life and my goal is to continue to create more opportunities for us to travel and learn together.
I’m trying out a few new things this year. First, I’ve created group trips at a variety of price points and comfort levels so that there is something for everyone. Next, I selected a few trips to invite EVERYONE to! People of all sizes and genders are welcome on select trips, so call your bestie and get bae excited because we’re ALL traveling together this year!
Lastly, I’m working with a variety of different tour groups and operators as well as doing all the planning myself for some of the trips. I love to plan and host but I feel more comfortable working with reputable companies when taking groups to countries I haven’t traveled to extensively or solo.
Get your calendars out and start requesting holiday time now! Because these are all small group trips and once they are sold out, that’s it! I’m so looking forward to connecting with you this year. I’ll see you soon, somewhere in the world!
