I had the good fortune of sitting down with the lovely Marissa Sutera to ask her a few questions about our trip to India this year. I couldn’t agree with her more that most of the time the magic of travel happens OUTSIDE your comfort zone.
If you want to avoid the stereotypical group tour experience (you know the one… a mob of obviously foreign tourists all wearing the same neon color, being shouted at through a loudspeaker by their guide), you need to book with the right company. But with the thousands of companies out there, how do you find the right one?
At Purposeful Nomad, we designed our trips to incorporate ethical adventures which support the local economies, all while getting unique experiences you couldn’t arrange on your own. We strive to follow the following six principles, which we think should be present in any small group tour worthy of your time and money!
Abbie Synan, travel writer, shares her experience from her trip to the DR with Purposeful Nomad. She states; “more than just a yoga retreat, Purposeful Nomad gives you the sense of community and the ability to recharge and leave with the idea that an island vacation can be more than a holiday; not just holding drinks with tiny umbrellas perched on glasses.”
Through past work experience and meeting my husband there, Caitlin Murray finds that the Dominican Republic is intrinsically woven into the fabric of her life. Creating programs with Purposeful Nomad in the DR many years later has brought her the ability to share her passion and love for this country.
