We work with content creators and influencers to help spread awareness of our mission to empower women through travel. We work with press and media through three main opportunities: press rates, affiliate commissions and cross-promotional opportunities.

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!

This past spring the talented travel blogger Brianne Miers of A Traveling Life interviewed Caitlin Murray, owner of Purposeful Nomad.

Located on the western corner of South America and nuzzled in between Colombia and Peru is Ecuador, a country that in our humble opinion, doesn't receive nearly as much hype as it should. There is so much more to Ecuador than the Galapagos and the Amazon!
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.”
Rebecca Principe ND shares her expertise about healthy travel tips, preventive care and what she carries in her "travel kit."
Carlie Grob shares her experience of travel, adventure, human connection and motorcycle rides in this story about her time in Vietnam. Carlie as been working with Purposeful Nomad for two years as our yoga instructor and chef extraordinaire on our Dominican Republic: Rest & Renew trip.
