Have you always dreamed of traveling somewhere off the beaten path and didn't know when, how and where? Then now this is your chance. Join me on a trip to Central Asia and explore Kyrgyzstan with me for 10 days at the end of April. Meet me and let’s create memories together…
Where is Kyrgyzstan?
Kyrgyzstan lies in the heart of Central Asia east of China and south of Kazakhstan. It is peaceful and quiet land locked country easy to reach by direct flights from Europe, Middle East and Asia.
Group trip Traveltomtom
This is going to be my first group trip. Basically I will be hosting the trip and promoting it among my audience to join me on a crazy adventure. I do not organize the trip myself as that will be done by Pacuara Travel, a licensed Dutch travel agency.
Like you always see in my Instagram and Snapchat stories I will be around all day making fun and creating happiness with the group members and locals. So join me in Kyrgyzstan and be featured in my Instagram stories.
It has been a long dream to travel to Kyrgyzstan and I am super excited to host my first group trip in this adventurous destination. I actually have never even been to Central Asia and Kyrgyzstan will be my first country to visit in this region.
This country is not your typical holiday destination but that is exactly what I am aiming for. I would love adventurous people to join me, who are ready for an amazing travel experience. You don’t need to be an experienced traveler like me. Having an open minded approach to discovering the world is already enough.
If this is your first overseas experience I would love you even more to join, because I know it will be life changing and I will personally be there those moments you might miss home. But I doubt you will! :)
Also visa wise it is a very visa friendly country and only very few countries will need a visa!
If it has always been on your bucketlist to start traveling solo then this could be your first step. Although this will be a group trip solo travelers are more than welcome. You will quickly find out that solo traveling actually means that you are hardly alone. The human connection of solo travelers is something you will experience and it might turn into the travel bug.
As I would like to maintain the personal touch of this group trip I set a maximum of 10 participants to join the trip! I will be available 24/7 during the group trip and you can ask me anything. Let’s create some awesome moments together!
