Have questions or need some assistance, no worries, we can help you out. We're also the main point-of-contact for all reservations and handle all the travel planning, bookings, and transportation so you can just show up and have fun.

We travel slow, because taking your time and soaking up the culture is what it's all about.
 
It’s like all the benefits of group travel without the commitment!

Trip Leader/Planner & Owner

Alyssa Emerson

After searching for a way to travel socially without being tied to an itinerary, I decided to put together the trips myself and help others travel too! Got a problem you need help with? Want a drinking or museum buddy? Prefer to just show up and do your thing? I've got your back! That's the whole point of a trip leader after all.
I also enjoy wandering around neighborhoods, people watching at cafes, hitting a good museum, and finding where the locals party at night.


The Trip

Berlin 2

Berlin, Germany

Arrive: September 6  |  Depart: September 13  |  7 nights
Berlin’s got something for everyone. No capital city in the world feels quite like it, and maybe that’s because none has had a century as eventful. A city that will leave strong impressions on you, it is permeated with the stories of the East and West Berlin, the stories of the past, the present and the future, stories of former tragedies and modern tolerance.
Today, Berlin’s got a new identity as a fun-loving, disarmingly scruffy, cool and socially-conscious hotbed of ideas. A melting pot of serious business, artistic expression, hipsters, incredible parties and a ton of beer!

Don't forget the more local or special events around the city. Berlin has been putting on an international street food festival every Thursday for 5 years now. You can also go to Lollapalooza Berlin on the 8th & 9th, as well as film and literature festivals.

Location, Location, Location

We'll be staying in (or very near) one of Berlin's most dynamic and hip neighborhoods, the Kreuzberg. A foodie paradise, there is an endless supply of excellent bars and cafes, and plenty of eclectic shops and galleries to wander through during the day. It's also just one neighborhood away from the majority of must-see sights and museums, as well as a plethora of clubs.

Enjoy the Day

Berlin has no shortage of remarkable museums, memorials, historic sights and modern buildings that tend to capture the imagination of even those with little interest in history or architecture.

Check out Berlin's most famous landmark, the Brandenburg Gate. Love the contemporary arts? Don't miss the East Side Gallery, the world's largest outdoor mural collection, along a 1.3km stretch of the remaining Berlin Wall. If museums are more your style, go to Museum Island Berlin's most important treasure trove. Spread across five grand museums, you can experience 6000 years worth of art, artifacts, sculpture and architecture from Europe and beyond.

Berlin is full of surprises! Always leave room to explore unexpected areas and seize new experiences.

 

 

Split, Croatia

Arrive: September 13  |  Depart: September 20  |  7 nights
Croatia's second-largest city, Split is a great place to see Dalmatian life as it’s really lived. Always buzzing, this exuberant city has just the right balance of tradition and modernity. To top it off, Split has a unique setting. Its dramatic coastal mountains act as the perfect backdrop to the turquoise waters of the Adriatic, and there’s 1,700 years of history to sink your teeth into.
Once you've wandered Split's enchanting Roman old town, lingered over a coffee on its sunny waterside promenade and ventured into its beautiful surrounds, you might find yourself agreeing with the locals, who describe their city as 'the most beautiful in the world'.


Enjoy the Day

The city is famous for the vivacious outdoor life that takes over the streets in all but the coldest and wettest months: as long as the sun is shining, the swish cafés of the waterfront Riva are never short of custom.

Head to Bačvice, one of Split’s most popular beaches, for swimming and sunbathing during the day and partying at night. You don't have to go far to feel Split's long history either. Roman Emperor Diocletian once ruled most of Europe, but he chose this site to retire to. Explore Diocletian's Palace where it still serves as a bustling center of the city's old town.

From there make your way to the crisscrossed footpaths and wooded heights of the Marjan peninsula, which offers the easiest escape from the bustle of central Split. A nature park with the sea on three sides, you'll be rewarded with a gorgeous panorama of the city and fantastic views over the islands.

 

Marjan Peninsula

 ... And Day Trips

Split is also a great base for day trips to some of the most spectacular and intriguing castles, towns and islands in northern Dalmatia (including some cool Game of Thrones locations). Take a day to see Klis Fortress, the extraordinarily well-preserved Romanesque and Renaissance architecture in Trogir, or the legendary pirate stronghold of Omiš. 

Once you’re in Omiš, it’s well worth taking an excursion up the Cetina river. Enjoy a sedate river cruise, some adrenaline pumping white water rafting, or shoot down a zipline zigzagging through the canyon.

 

Location, Location, Location

We'll be staying in-between the historic and central Old Town and the very popular Bačvice beach area. This will keep the best of Split at an easy distance, allowing you to walk the promenade, shop, relax in a cafe, or chill on the beach within minutes.

Take a cue from the locals who use the word 'pomalo' (take it easy) as a greeting.
