Adventure Travel Shop Director

Adventure Travel Shop Director

My name is Giovanna and I am very proud to be the director of the Adventure Travel Shop, I am so excited about this project and motivated by the fact that we are helping amazing people to make the world a better place by promoting their work in the travel industry.

Adventure travel is a very subjective thing, and my idea of adventure may not be the same as yours. We are all unique, with different needs, looking for different things.

When I think about adventure I do not hanker for dangerous sports, or the kind of excitement designed to produce an adrenalin rush. I get my kicks from meeting new people, getting to know them in their own environment, and spending time with them. I’m not the type of person who needs to actively seek out ‘fear’ – controlled or otherwise, and in my view that is a very narrow way of thinking about adventure. I love my security, my feet on the ground, my family, and my life too much to risk anything too dangerous!

Please don’t misunderstand –  I do appreciate that there are those of you who absolutely crave such activities, and so we will seek out the most amazing adventures online and post them our site.

The most important thing that we do is curate holidays from companies that care about the world we live in and do not exploit people or environments.

We look for and promote companies who educate travelers about the countries they visit, and show them how they can give something back and leave only their footprint. These may sound like clichés, but they’re not, we’re very serious about these issues. The companies we are linked with will ensure that your money reaches the right people, those who have warmly welcomed you into their communities in wonderful places all over the world.

The trips and holidays you’ll find here will include things like walking & cycling holidays, family holidays, small group travel, TEFL, local living holidays and exciting things you can do while you are abroad. Every listing will include the most basic details about the trips we have selected for you, so you will never feel overwhelmed while you browse.

When you see an intriguing vacation package, simply click on it and the Adventure Travel Shop will whisk you away to the website selling it! You are taken right there so you can make the reservation or learn more without stopping to ask for directions.

In time our website will be packed with offers including an amazing selection of low priced vacation packages that are perfect for anyone and everyone!

We do not sell activities and we are not an online travel agency and all reservations are made through third party sellers, our affiliates and partners.

You will also find the best travel gear, and tips and advice about all aspects of travel.
