After I've quit my job as an engineer in Romania, I started to travel and volunteer around the world for the last decade in order to have a better sense of who I am outside my social conditioning so far. I was working in various fields throughout the years in different countries ( engineer, gardener, teacher, customer service, tour guide, ski resorts manager, horse riding treks, etc) and so I've come to realise the potential of growth in terms of personal and spiritual development that lies behind every trip and every interaction with a new culture. More than just a travel experience, my aim is to facilitate a deep connection with communities world wide that I consider family with the purpose to share their values, their wisdom, their culture, customs and traditons so we can experience a different way of life that is an alternative to the societal structures and the status quo that we are offered as a role model.

Depending of the location where we'll spend the night (city, village, ashram, jungle), the accomodation can vary from a 3* hotel to a glamping site. As the purpose of the tour is based around community there will be times when we will sleep in shared dorms, but private rooms will always be available. Any sleeping arrangements and other details will be discussed prior to starting the tour. Any questions about the trip? You can let me know in the Q&A section!
