After traveling solo to over seventy countries, I decided in 2017 that it was time to get like-minded travelers together, and start #MyLifesATravelTRIBE Group Trips! After successfully completing 4 of them, I decided to plan more in 2018! Here’s everything you need to know!
Who Are #MyLifesATravelTRIBE Group Trips for?
Awesome, fun, adventurous, and respectful people, whether they’ve traveled the world or are thinking about taking their first trip. You don’t have to be outgoing, just open to meeting other people and having a great time.
Most people want to meet like-minded people who share a love of travel and adventure, and are mostly solo travelers although we’ve had a few couples. Ages typically range from 23-37.
Group Trips are also for those interested in learning about being a full time digital nomad (blogger, influencer, etc.), however full courses and information are reserved for designated Blogger Bootcamps.
How Are Destinations Chosen:
Destinations are handpicked by me depending on places I found most stunning, adventurous, and easy to navigate as a group. I also do various polls on social media to determine destinations with the highest interest.
Most destinations are places I’ve traveled solo to already, and planned my own itinerary for, so that I’m able to easily navigate them again and show the highlights to the group.
Benefits of #MyLifesATravelTRIBE Group Trips:
Meeting and traveling with awesome like-minded people
Cheaper prices than traveling solo (thanks to double occupancy and ride sharing)
Photo tips and help
An awesome, adventure-packed itinerary
Limited space for a more personal experience
