Intelligently combining work, life, and travel.

 

 

My story: I visited 27 countries in 2014, all while employed by a large corporation..

And I'm not alone! 

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Do you make travel + work meld? E-mail us at contact@travelgenome.com and we'll feature your inspirational story!

 

The Travel Genome Project is focused on making travel more realistic, and working it in within the confines of a career. 

Exploring the "Middleground"

When it comes to exploring our lovely planet, two disparate “archetypes” (or personas, if you will) emerge as being highly prominent. Most of us are one of these:

 1. The Corporate “Suit” — This person has 2 weeks of paid vacation per year — and they use it to jet to the Caribbean and “unwind”, an occasional ski weekend, or rowdy bachelor/bachelorette party. Travel is not a priority. I’ve been this person.
2. The Backpacking Vagabond — The recluse traveler on an endless journey — seeing the world, smelling the sights. This person has put life at home on hold, is traveling light, and living as absolutely cheaply as possible. I’ve been this person too.

While most tend to gravitate towards one of these two extremes, there IS a middle ground, a compromise. It’s a wonderful place to be, and I’ll show you how to get there.

For this project, over a series of interviews, I’ll highlight friends and folks I’ve met that epitomize this middle ground — and make travel + work meld in coexistence that manages risk, and allows exploration of our beautiful planet. 

The plight of the travelers paradox is no more — let’s explore the middle ground together!

The Project (Intro)


The Project: Practical, actionable, travel inspiration

A data driven approach to travel recommendations.

The world is a big place. Let us be your compass!

We've begun the journey of mapping the TRAVEL GENOME. Join us.

 

Our Objective: Making intelligent and actionable travel recommendations through a detailed mapping of traveler preferences. We take data including demographic information, likes/dislikes, budget, departure city, etc. We use this data and our travel intelligence to make recommendations to help you plan your next trip.

 

Why travel to Cancun, when cheaper, more interesting, more unique destinations await!

 

THE PROJECT IS CURRENTLY IN BETA - HELP US BUILD THE MAPPING!

Provide your e-mail below to get free travel recommendations, and be kept up to date when we launch.
