India is one of the most fascinating and majestic countries you can visit. It is said that you can explore India for several years and still only see a fraction of what she has to offer.

India is a vast and diverse country that serves up many different types of experiences. No words or phrases can do it justice. A rookie mistake that some travelers make when visiting this magnificent country is that they try to cram too much of it into trip.
About a year ago we had the pleasure of meeting Todd. From the first moment we met we knew he was an "explorer", the traveler who seeks to create paths in uncharted territories then turns around and inspires others to seek out those same paths as he guides them along the way through his words. He embodied the explorer so much that we modeled our explorer archetype around him. For explorers it's not enough to go out into the world and have a bunch of meaningless adventures. Explorers are on a mission, a mission to FEEL EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE, and those moments must be met with depth and novelty. Todd, as other explorers set out to do, lives a life that is balanced by his dreams, desire for [some] stability, and his insatiable appetite for personal growth.
As our Explorer archetype, we often reach out to Todd for inspiration, insight, and guidance. Over the last year this routine has fostered a friendship founded on a common desire to create a movement that will inspire others to live deeper fuller lives through travel. During one of our deep dives, we were generating a list of travelers to interview. Naturally Todd was on our list. When we reached out and sent a list of the topics we would be covering, Todd responded in his typical explorer way. He went to his thought bank and pulled out an article that was perfectly suited for the conversation being covered.

I wasn’t always a believer that travel was within my means. In fact, I thought it was downright impossible for someone like me to travel the way I get to now. While I may have believed that there wasn’t a means to travel without being wealthy (I was so wrong), I was always listening and keeping an open mind to the trajectory my path was on. I knew if I listened to that feint little voice telling me to wake up and go live my life the way I envision then eventually ill wind up exactly where I need to be. So, I kept listening and kept taking massive action and whadda ya know? Sure, enough, I was surrounded by incredible like-minded people, that I had the pleasure of taking trip after trip with that changed the very embodiment of who I am as a person in miraculous ways.Tackling life as an adventure head on without dwelling on the “what if?”
When planning a group trip there are six things to consider. Geographic location, budget, what to do, where to stay, when to go, and who is going to go with you.
