The story behind

Exploring the world with purpose

From Vision to Reality

The founding story

Four years ago, I embarked my first trip to Bali. During that time, I was faced with the struggle of overcoming burnout after several years of management roles in the Netherlands and enduring the effects of a severe concussion. It was a challenging period in my life, feeling overwhelmed by the demands of daily life. However, amidst the recovery process, I discovered the enchanting island of Bali, often referred to as the “Island of the Gods.” It captivated my heart and soul, leaving me with a deep desire to share its magic with others.

During my time in Bali, I longed for a travel experience that would provide not only relaxation but also a sense of purpose. I desired to be guided, taken care of, and connected with like-minded individuals on a spiritual journey. I wanted the comfort of my own hotel room while exploring various meaningful discussions and destinations.

It was this desire that sparked a dream within me – the dream of organizing beautiful and transformative journeys for others. I wanted to create experiences that were unique, exceptional, and allowed people to reconnect with themselves while gaining profound insights.
