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.

Amy Is Going Places
Lives in Brașov, Romania
US native. Former resident of Romania. Current solo female globe trotter. I've now traveled to Romania, Italy, England, Scotland, Wales, Canada, The Netherlands, South Africa, Israel, and numerous places around the USA. I've done group tours, volunteer work, solo travel, studied abroad, and taught internationally. I lived for over a year in Romania, many years in Tennessee, and several months in England. My travel style is slow, spontaneous, and - shall we say - richly flavorful. I prefer to stay for longer lengths in places rather than having a whirlwind sightseeing venture. I'll skip the chain restaurants for a hole-in-the-wall café any day of the week. I prefer a loose itinerary and remain open to what each day brings. My favorite things to do and see as I travel are... - EAT - Try whatever is local. Order the special of the day. Talk with the restaurant staff. - WALK - It encourages me to slow down, notice, and get a feel for community. - HIKE - I'm a lazy hiker. By "hike," I mean a few hours at a slow pace. - MUSEUMS - Spend an afternoon. Read the descriptions on exhibits. Talk with the docents. Buy something in the giftshop. - CHURCHES - I'm fascinated by the various ways people have worshipped the God of the Bible over centuries and across borders. Many older churches are also museums or tourist-friendly spaces. Some additionally hold regular liturgical services. - CASTLES - Castles, fortresses, palaces, big ol' houses: these places transport me back in time. I imagine the people who built, lived in, and defended them. What would they think of how we now live? If this kind of travel sounds ideal to you, follow me to easily access all the resources I've created. I'd love to help you experience slower, more meaningful travel. I have tips for how to make the most of your trip, with low stress, reasonable safety, affordability, and lots of fun. Book one of my custom services, and we'll work together to get you wheels up on your next adventure!
