Lena Müller
Lives in Cologne, Germany
Welcome to "the good land beyond" travel shop! 👋🏻 I'm Lena, originally from Germany but over the years, I've called California, Mallorca (Spain), and Chile temporary homes. Each place has left an permanent mark on my heart. These diverse and captivating destinations have given me a so much appreciation for the beauty of the world and its people. When I don't travel, I like to spend my time with landscape photography, digital product design and drinking coffee (too much coffee!). My goal here on Thatch is to offer you more than just travel guidance. I'm dedicated to bringing value to your future trips by sharing my carefully curated itineraries, expert tips, and, most importantly, the priceless locals' perspective. Travelling responsibly is so important to me, so I believe immersing ourselves into each place and connecting with the people, culture and cuisine can be so beautiful. Why should you work with me? Because I've lived it. Because I've walked the cobblestone streets of Valldemossa, Spain, set out to find the best cardamom bun in Copenhagen, and hiked the W-Trek in Torres del Paine, Patagonia. Because I've made mistakes, taken detours, and found hidden gems. I've learned from every step of my journey, and I'm here to share those lessons with you. So, whether you're a solo traveler, an adventurous couple, a family seeking new horizons, or anyone in between, I invite you to embark on a world of exciting possibilities with me. Love, Lena ✨ P.S. Connect with me on Instagram or check out my blog @thegoodlandbeyond, where I share even more of my travel tales and tips!

Plan For Me Dani
Lives in Philadelphia, PA, USA
My name is Danielle and I have been planning trips for the past 10 years. One thing special and unique about my guides is that I am not producing guides that I didn't currently use myself. The places in my guides are places I have been, the itineraries are itineraries that I have personally followed. Everything is real and I have vetted myself. My travel planning story started with a honeymoon to Italy and since then it has grown each and every year. I love all kinds of travel! It's hard to fine a niche because I fit into so many categories. I love nature, hiking, and being outdoors. I love beaches and sunsets and sipping wine and cocktails in pretty places. I love learning about people and cultures and history. I love street art and busy cities and I also love small towns and quieter places. I will sleep in a hostel and I enjoy a beautiful hotel. I love South and Central America and I am obsessed with Europe. I've been to Asia twice and hope to get back in the next few years. I love to eat and one thing you'll always get from me are true and great reviews of places that I've personally eaten! I have just returned from Albania and I am working on guides from that trip! My full time job is as a School Leader of Social and Emotional Learning in Philadelphia. All my travel is done on school breaks and in the summer. I have still managed to visit over 36 countries and countless cities along the way. Being a teacher my whole life is about planning and I do believe I am exceptional at it. I work VERY hard to plan incredible trips and now you can hopefully benefit from that as well!

Meredith Johnson
Lives in Charlotte, NC, USA
Hello! My name is Meredith, but my friends call me Mere. I am a nurse based out of Charlotte, NC and I am extremely lucky to have an international airport only 15 minutes away. About 4 years ago I got the travel itch. This is around the same time that my friends started getting married, having kids, buying homes, and just all around acting like adults. In a time where everyone was intent on settling down I was intent on having a trip booked every 3 months. I have planned solo trips and planned trips for myself and friends. I believe there is a difference in a trip and a vacation, so it’s most important to me for the client to know which they would prefer. When I travel internationally I try to make the most of my time, so most of my guides will be more “trip” based. This includes traveling to different parts of a country and making the most of the time to see and experience new things. I am open to more leisurely vacations guides and would have no problem helping you make a guide that fits your wants. There’s nothing more satisfying than finally getting the trip plan written down, well maybe except getting off the plane at your final destination. I believe in doing the must do things in the places you must do them. If you are going to someplace new, you never k now when you will be back there again, so you might as well do everything possible to elevate your experience.

Lives in Dallas, TX, USA
Hi, my name is Sophia. I am so happy you are considering me to assist you in making your travel itinerary. Briefly, I would like to tell you a little about my own travels, so you know my background and what I offer. I started traveling around Europe the last two years, making all of my itineraries based, on my budget. I am gone for at least a week and try to fit in as many places and activities as possible at a time. I like to have all locations and transportation planned before boarding my flight. I have a printed-out itinerary with dates/times of travel locations, flight or train confirmation, and Airbnb check-in and check-out times. The best part is the list of activities I leave for myself to pick and choose (with prices listed to the side) and distances from my Airbnb or other attractions so I can pack in as much as possible. The list helps me to seamlessly pick and choose the activities I want to do based on energy level, budget, and time of day. I take my time to look up recommendations, reviews, and blogs of people who have been to places I have not yet gone, taking it all into consideration to plan the best trip possible. This is what I would like to offer you! A side cliff bar in Croatia, a refreshing rose garden in Vienna, or a brisk morning sunrise in the Dolomites of Italy. I want to offer the way I travel, all the main travel dates/times, locations, and transportation are taken care of, and a list of activities to pick and choose from. Your preferences will be vital in order to make this trip a success. I have been to Portugal, the Azores islands, Spain, Scotland, London, Italy, Athens, Croatia, Vienna, Germany, and lastly around the USA. Each of these trips was planned by myself and each schedule was followed beautifully. Some were planned by looking at a picture and finding ways to get there others were easier. Where can I help you go?

Always On PTO
Lives in Hermosa Beach, CA, USA
Hi there, welcome to my page! Nearly 10 years ago, I packed up all of my belongings and moved across the US from my childhood home in Massachusetts to Los Angeles. I had no job, and no plan, but just enough ambition to try something new that got me out of my comfort zone. It wasn't long after arriving in Los Angeles that I discovered my passion for traveling, adventure, and being outdoors. I've been exploring non-stop ever since and have been lucky enough to experience 7 countries, 25 states, and 15 National Parks. I'm an expert in west coast travel, having explored much of California, Arizona, and Utah. I'm a hiker, camper, and love to explore off the beaten path, which you'll see reflected in all of my guides and itineraries. Because of my full-time job and limited PTO, I plan my travel ambitiously, often times driving or flying somewhere on a Friday after work for a weekend. I try to fit in seeing as much of a destination as I possibly can on my trips (even if that means sacrificing some sleep!). I'm always thinking about my next adventure and am very excited to help you plan yours! I hope you're able to find some inspiration with my guides and itineraries, and discover a new place that you want to add to your bucket list.
