On a WanderRock trip, you'll experience deep & lasting friendships, try new foods, experience new cultures and make lasting lifelong memories that will enable you to gain a greater perspective of yourself & the world around you. Here's what awaits you when you embark on your WanderRock trip:
A Built In Social Group
No need to work to make friends here! We have a built in social group of other people that you'll have no trouble getting to know and making friends with. The first part of all of our trips are designed just so that you can get to know your fellow travelers, build trust with the group and have a good time.
We'll all be here to support each other through the good & the bad, and you'll come away with friendships that will last a lifetime.
A side effect of around-the-world travel is increased confidence. Once you've successfully navigated a foreign country, experienced their culture and eaten their food, regular life seems a lot easier. At the end of your trip, you'll feel more confident to take on the challenges that life brings you, and more capable to problem solve & navigate through the world.
New Independence Skills
Learn all the skills you need to maintain a fully independent life in real-world situations. That could be cooking classes in Italy, navigating the public transit system of Tokyo, or simply just doing laundry and packing your bag.
You'll come home with a new sense of independence & the skills and knowledge to back it up.
Time To Relax
Traveling with a group of people 24/7 for multiple weeks can get old very quickly if you don't have time to relax, decompress and do your own thing. So we've built in plenty of unstructured time to relax, unwind and screw around. Read a book, watch a movie, take a nap or go to a park.
This time is yours to do with as you see fit. And don't worry! Self care is a big part of this trip, so if you don't know how to relax and recover, we'll gladly teach you along the way.
Sightseeing & More
We'll hit the highlights along our journey to show you the best of the local area, let you get those pictures to send back home (or post on the 'gram) and help you see the most exciting parts of the places we visit.
Then we'll go beyond seeing the places and participate in the local culture with activities and experiences designed to immerse you and provide an authentic experience.
You'll experience a lot of "firsts" on our trips. Places will touch you in deep ways, people will have an impact on you, and 20 years after the end of this trip you'll think back and go "Remember that time I was hiking in Switzerland?"
There's no shortage of memorable experiences here. After all, our mission is to put more life in your life, and the days packed full of life are the days you remember most.
From hiking & boating to zip-lining and cooking new foods, our trips are full of fun, safe & exciting adventures, with plenty of off time as well. Expect to make new friends, visit new places, do new things, try new foods and experience different cultures in a deep and immersive fashion. You will be outside of your comfort zone at times, and you will also be deeper into your comfort zone than you've ever been before.
