In late 2019, we launched The Nomadic Network, a global initiative created to connect travelers with like-minded people in their area in order to inspire, educate, and supply them with the tools they needed to travel cheaper, better, and longer.

We wanted it to be a global travel club with chapters around the world, something you could do in your own city but also on the road. (Want to make some local friends? find a meetup in your destination! That kind of thing.)

Over 1,150 people attended our live events. In each city, we heard many stories about how delighted members were to finally be able to exchange the travel stories they’d been dying to talk about with people who were just as ecstatic to hear them.

But when the pandemic brought the world to a screeching halt in March 2020, it did the same to our in-person events.

Since then, we have been hosting virtual events. We’ve had over 120 events attended by thousands of people that included discussions, speakers, Q&As, and travel game sessions.

We’ve also hosted chapter-specific online delighted hours for people to get to know others in their vicinity.

By doing these events, we’re continuing our mission to connect travelers with each other and resources that will help them travel cheaper, better, and longer when the world opens up again.

Since that seems to be happening soonish (we hope), we plan to relaunch in-person events later this summer. Whenever it’s safe to do so (which will hopefully be the fall), we’re planning to do a weekend getaway event in October. We’ll have tours, dinners, workshops, and other cool events! Our goal is to do it for around 300 people!

Until then, we hope you join some of our complimentary events. Today, I just wanted to share some of the cool events we have coming up!

Finally, we’ve relaunched our travel forums! For years, we had forums on the website, and now we’ve fully integrated them with our new community network so everything is under one roof. You’ll be able to ask questions, share your advice, and connect with other travelers!

And, with travel picking up in parts of the world, now’s a great time to start asking questions on the forums again!

All this is free. You have to do is create a profile and you’re good to go!

Even if the pandemic has quashed our in-person events, it’s pretty remarkable hosting these virtual events and being able to connect with travelers from around the world. It’s kept us inspired! It’s something we wouldn’t have done if not for COVID and, even when we start hosting in-person events again, we still plan on doing virtual events considering that it’s a great way to get people around the world together!

After all, one of the things COVID-19 has taught us (or at least it has for me) is that we shouldn’t take community for granted.

Buchen Sie Ihre Reise: Logistische Tipps und Tricks
Buchen Sie Ihren Flug
Finden Sie einen billigen Flug mit Skyscanner. Es ist meine Lieblings -Suchmaschine, weil sie Websites und Fluggesellschaften auf der ganzen Welt durchsucht, sodass Sie immer wissen, dass kein Stein unversucht bleibt.

Buchen Sie Ihre Unterkunft
Sie können Ihr Hostel mit Hostelworld buchen. Wenn Sie an einem anderen Ort als einem Hostel übernachten möchten, verwenden Sie, da sie konsequent die günstigsten Preise für Gästehäuser und Hotels zurückgeben.

Vergessen Sie nicht die Reiseversicherung
Die Reiseversicherung wird Sie gegen Krankheit, Verletzung, Diebstahl und Stornierungen sichern. Es ist ein detaillierter Schutz für den Fall, dass etwas schief geht. I never go on a trip without it as I’ve haD Um es in der Vergangenheit oft zu benutzen. Meine Lieblingsunternehmen, die den besten Service und Wert bieten, sind:

Sicherheitswing (am besten für alle)

Versichern Sie meine Reise (für über 70)

MedJet (für zusätzliche Evakuierungsabdeckung)
