How many places would you travel to if you didn’t have to go there alone?
The fear of traveling alone holds many people back from achieving their dreams - but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Finding like-minded people who want to travel when you do and are able to can be an uphill challenge at the best of times.
Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are in Thailand. Imagine stepping out of a rustic hotel only to come face-to-face with several shades of azure and turquoise blue.
It is the stuff dreams are made of. Or rather - it is the stuff that Thailand is made of. Tucked away in this beautiful Asian paradise are thousands of little islands that sparkle like glimmering gems along the sprawling coastline.
An interview with Daniella Pascale, WiGo Trips ambassador
Sometimes the best experiences are on our own doorstep. This is certainly the case for WiGo Trips ambassador Daniella Pascale, 24, from New York.
What do you get when you combine comedy with travel?
While the question may seem like the beginning of a very bad joke, the end result is the adventure of a lifetime that makes you laugh and fall in love with travel.
Natasha Pearl Hansen has combined her passion for travel with her wanderlust and has been touring the world doing stand-up comedy for the last 9 years.
Paris is famous for its landmarks such as the Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower, which thousands of tourists climb each and every year.
But the truth is there is so much more to this awesome city than most people imagine.
OK so here is a disclaimer: I’ve already been to Cape Town.
But it’s still on my bucket list.
Allow me to explain.
Cape Town South Africa is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
It has everything you could possibly want from a bucket list destination including beaches, mountains, botanical islands and colourful towns.
So the truth is there are many reasons to visit Cape Town.
But I have just one.
In the southern section of Japan’s main island, Honshu, lays a series of mountain ranges to rival all others. The Japanese Alps. With small towns and villages scattered amongst the valleys, accessing these incredible mountains is a breeze. Head into Hakuba, famous for hosting the 1998 winter Olympics, and drink in all of its scenic glory.
I tend to be a bit of a hurricane. Dragging people through the storm with whatever crazy idea I get it in my head to do. Need a travel buddy? I’m already on the plane. Need someone to hike with? I’m waiting at the top of the mountain. Need someone to help paddle a raft going full speed toward potential death? You’ll find me at the front of the raft. That’s why an 11-day white water rafting trip in the Grand Canyon has been in my brain and on my bucket list for a while. But putting something on a bucket list isn’t enough. So I decided to make it happen for myself and five others.
It’s the perfect combination of things I enjoy:
Adventure, nature, and fun- not only to do, but also to remember doing. After all, sometimes the best part of doing cool shit is looking back on it.
Growing up, I’d never have considered myself an “outdoorsy” or “adventure sports” type of person. I mean, I dropped out of Cub Scouts, was athletically husky, and didn’t even know I liked rollercoasters until I was in my early 20s.
However, my 20s were a time of learning, being selfish, and trying as much stuff as possible.
In the past few years, I’ve hiked 40 miles across the Grand Tetons, slept under the stars in Vietnam, and nearly drowned in the Ayung River in Bali.
