Lauren was a fantastic host —wonderful, full of life, giving, trustworthy and a ton of fun! Even though the stay was only a week long, we got such a beautiful, well-rounded immersion in the culture…
What this is not: your standard trip. We saved money along the way and got a fantastic cultural voyage. I can wholeheartedly recommend this experience and I will most definitely be joining Lauren again in the near future. Read more “A well-rounded immersion in culture”
Lauren made me feel comfortable and safe traveling to a part of the world I had never been to previously. The personal experiences she shares regarding being a smart traveler and her cultural knowledge are valuable.
She is friendly, a good problem solver, respectful of personal space/time, and fun. I would definitely travel with her again. Read more “Safe, comfortable, and fun!”
Lauren, our host, was a charming ambassador for Morocco; I don’t see how anyone could provide a better experience than she did for our group consisting of eight strangers (soon to become friends).
Thank you, Lauren, for planning such a wonderful trip and sharing so many fabulous experiences. Looking forward to your future retreats. Read more “I don’t see how anyone could provide a better experience”
Lauren is a complete badass. She's stayed in the mountains where it was so cold, her hair froze. She's slept under mosquito netting in Indonesia to keep from being devoured by mosquitos the likes of which we've never seen. She's ridden camels and burros. I believe she's even ridden on a rickshaw. She's shared lodging with scorpions. She's had many adventures.
Lauren now arranges group experiences for women who want to travel and experience local culture. These are not trips where you stay in a 4 star motel and visit the tourist attractions. You go to the places where people live. You may go to local festivals. You may go to museums. You may take cooking classes and learn to cook the local food. You may visit beautiful bazaars and museums. You may go on hikes. You may watch exotic bellydancers or listen to musicians.
