Lives in St. Petersburg, FL, USA
Hello, I'm Tanya, I’m so excited to share my love of travel, food, and new experiences with you! My desire is to help others make travel happen, by creating ways to make it more accessible. I'm a passionate traveler and creator of unique, immersive, small-group trips for women to Mexico, Morocco, and NYC. My husband and I created a lifestyle where travel took center stage. We made the conscious decision to embrace unschooling for our children, allowing us the flexibility to navigate life at our own pace. Together, we embarked on adventures across numerous countries, including Italy, Scotland, Ireland, Peru, Germany, Norway, Spain, Morocco, Mexico, Costa Rica, and road trips across the USA. I've also embarked on solo adventures in India, Italy, Mexico, and NYC, further enriching my experiences. Throughout my years of travel, I've nurtured meaningful relationships in many destinations. I work closely with these connections to offer my clients a truly unique and specialized experience. These are once in a lifetime, unforgettable, small-group trips tailored to provide an authentic and enriching experience for women. In addition to curated group trips, I also offer self-guided walking tours and recommendation lists right here on Thatch. These resources empower you to fill your trip with unique experiences, allowing you to explore your chosen destination at your own pace while still enjoying the insights and expertise I've gained through my extensive travels. Whether you dream of exploring the vibrant markets of Morocco, savoring the flavors of Mexico, or uncovering the hidden gems of New York City, I am dedicated to helping you Make Travel Happen. My mission is to curate journeys that go beyond the ordinary, fostering personal growth and deep connections while discovering the world's wonders. Let's embark on a transformative adventure together, whether it's with my guided trips or through the self-guided experiences I offer on Thatch!

Julia Pacak
Lives in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico
Welcome to my travel shop! My adventure started in 2017 when I left my home country, Poland, and moved to the US to start my exchange program as an au pair. I have lived and traveled throughout the States for 2 years. I've lived in New York City for a year, hence you'll find many maps and guides from this magical city ;) From there, I moved to San Francisco and traveled all over the West Coast, which is absolutely stunning and I can't wait for you to see my maps, guides, and tips for this part of the USA. After that, I relocated to Dubai, UAE to become a flight attendant and work for one of the best airlines in the world ;) I live in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico and absolutely love it. I would like my travel guides to help you travel stress-free so you can immerse yourself in the culture of the country you're visiting. So pack your bags, grab your passport, and let's explore the world together! Love, Julia P.S. To check my past and current trips let's become friends on Instagram ;) @travel.stressfree @julietta__p I always advise fellow travelers to get a SIM card before or during any trip. And if you're like me, and want to be prepared beforehand get an eSIM. I've been using Airalo for years now and it has NEVER disappointed.  Having an eSIM card has several perks: - Convenience: with an eSIM, you don't need to physically swap SIM cards when traveling to different countries. It's all digital making it easier and more convenient.  - Flexibility: You can easily switch between plans and countries, without needing a physical SIM card.  - Quick activation: Activating an eSIM is so much faster than getting a physical one, saving you time and hassle.  - Dual SIM capability: Some devices support dual SIM functionality, allowing you to have both an eSIM and a physical SIM card, giving you even more flexibility.  Local and regional eSIMs for travellers -

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!
