Kirsten Koza created this trip after having a blast on a similar adventure through Peru. On that trip, 10 women (complete strangers), came together to cycle through South America. The trip was a raging success, which Kirsten is looking to repeat, but this time to Kyrgyzstan.
Her Peruvian trip is proof that these spontaneous, Internet-bred global adventures can work. And not only work, but be much more exciting than travelling solo or with people on pre-packaged tours. Read Kristen’s write-up of the trip to Peru. Then check out this latest trip of hers.
What’s interesting about this trip is that Karen and Ken are a couple looking for other people to join their trip. This goes against the thinking that it’s only solo travellers that benefit from Globetrooper.
In fact, Lauren and I, as a group of two, first hit the Internet looking for travel partners for Mt Kilimanjaro. We came across Martin, a Dane, who joined us for the trip, and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. And his stories really challenged what we thought was possible with global travel. So back to Karen and Ken, don’t think you’ll be the third wheel if you join them, couples are just as much (if not more) fun.
Nathan not only wants to go to Timbuktu (yes, it’s a real place in the African country of Mali), but he wants to come back too. And for more than just bragging rights, but to experience unfettered and unrestricted adventure along the way. Nathan’s trip displays another use of Globetrooper; he doesn’t necessarily want someone to join him for the entire trip, he’s just interested in anyone meeting up along the way.
So if you’ll be in the area, leave a message for Nathan and organise to see a familiar face along the way.
