About me

I'm in love with travel. In my youth it helped me put my life in perspective & build confidence. Perhaps the most beautiful gift of travel is connection - to people + places & noticing our shared human experience. As a former history and geography teacher, I seek ways to learn about cultures & societies that are not found in academic books but in personal connections. I started Conscious Travel Collective (CTC) as a place to provide highly intentional travel, that forges connections with locals, and fellow travelers alike, while creating positive impact for the host community. CTC serves socially conscious, curious travelers with private travel experience designed for groups.
We've carefully determine our niche is small groups of 6-16 travelers, more commonly 8-12. Trips can be fully guided or more independent, but all share a few things in common;
* We careful balance locally focused experiences in nature, culture, cuisine, & more with time for reflection, connection & rest. We offer transparency in our pricing & a commitment to leaving a positive impact.
* We seek to educate to example, demonstration to our travelers how to "travel better", more open minded + respectful of the destination
