SEE WHAT OUR WANDERISTS ARE SAYING ABOUT US

We obviously think we're awesome. We work really hard to be. We also know there are some areas we can improve and we love that our Wanderists give us feedback to help us make things better.  In fact, some of our Wanderists are part of a "brains trust" to help us improve our processes and make things even better for you! 

 

  Melissa WY Cycle 1  - This review is too hard to write, because it's the last day of the year and I'm fighting back emotions. The bonds and experiences you'll have are not easily tamed by words. So listen to Nike "Just Do It".

  Amber  - This has been an incredible year. One of the most important reasons I wanted to travel with a group was to have a built-in community wherever I landed and Wander Year provided that. I bonded with just about everyone in our group in my own special way. This experience brings you friendships that will last you beyond the time you're together. That said, I realize that traveling in a group is not for everyone. People who are interested in this type of experience should do a self-inventory and determine what they want out of the experience. Everything is not going to be like home so manage your expectations accordingly. This experience only works if you understand the value of stepping outside of your comfort zone. Be positive and make this experience your own. It will be over in the blink of an eye.

  Nikki   - I was excited for the opportunity to spend a month in a new location. While I have traveled extensively in the past, I've never spent a long time in one place. Wanderist life gave me the support I needed to feel comfortable traveling half way around the world by myself. From the snacks in my room upon arrival, to the inside scoop on where to find the best brunch spots, I felt taken care of while still incredibly independent to plan my adventure.

  Tushunda  - You guys created a space that allowed us to experience the world in a different way. The fact that I got a chance to travel the world with a group of diverse educated professionals was a blessing. I am forever grateful for that.

  Zakiyyah  -  I had a great experience with MWY. I participated in the full year and even got to do some side trips along the way. There were naturally some bumpy moments with it being the first year (people dropping out, people having various expectations that were or were not met etc.), but I can say mine were for the most part met. I loved all my apartments (lived in a loft and on a beach for the first time ever--hello somebody!), and I was traveling with the perfect group of people. For me, MWY was not just an opportunity to travel but an opportunity to conquer my fears, grow in ways I couldn't have imagined, and (unbeknownst to be), gain a family that will be with me for a lifetime. I'm not the person I was a year ago. I'm braver, stronger, and smarter, and it is because of the platform that MWY provided that that was even possible. ❤️❤️❤️

  Chanda  - My Wander Year got me to move forward at a time when I was a little bit stuck. This year, I visited Asia and South America for the first time. I made new friends all over the world and enjoyed being part of a community for the journey. It would have been a different trip if I'd done it solo, I'm glad I made the choice to stay with this group. Experience of a lifetime!
