“I love to travel. In fact like most people I know, I prioritize spending on travel and experiences above most other things. I love exploring new cultures and I love getting lost in the sights, sound and smells of a new city. I love the excitement that starts to build after booking a flight or finding the perfect hotel for an upcoming trip. What I don’t love? TripAdvisor. What drives me nuts? Yelp reviews… I couldn’t figure out why I could never find trustworthy recommendations or reviews that were relevant to my personal tastes, budget or preferences.” And then it hit me.
After one particularly frustrating afternoon spent scouring the internet for feedback from travelers I could actually relate to and coming up empty, I realized that the tools I was using were not designed for me. In fact, they were built more than 20 years ago (by a bunch of dudes) and haven’t really changed much since. Yet how we travel, what we prioritize when we travel, and even where we travel has changed so dramatically (especially in the past year!). I had a vision to build something better, something designed to serve the needs of a new generation of travelers, foodies, and adventure-seekers like myself... and Well Traveled was born.” - Samantha Patil, co-founder
