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!

Emilie La Gavi
Lives in Montreux, Switzerland
This is not your relax and chill retreat vacation recommendations. I am more of a live-my-life-to-its-fullest, watch-the-sunrise, walk-everywhere, everything-for-the-experience, acting-like-I-own-a-food-blog, enjoy-drinks-on-a-rooftop, art-critic type of traveler. Ironically, I love equally to travel solo or with a bunch of friends/family, eat old sandwiches on a backpacking trip or lavish on gastronomic food, a spontaneous adventure where we decide at 9pm where we are sleeping later or a day-by-day planned trip. No matter where, how, with whom, and for how long, I choose to prioritize the experience and memories. And with a friendly budget. Sometimes, budget friendly means only booking a room on Airbnb in order to enjoy a nice brunch. Or, going to the grocery store to balance out an expensive scenic train ride. At 23 years old, I am nowhere to be a travel expert. But, I lived in 4 different countries already, across two continents, and have a google maps saturated with saved pins. My obsession in finding the best gems, hidden spots, good food, fun cocktails, and unique experiences, has brought me here. You will find a good mix of shorts spontaneous weekends trips up to longer adventures; road-trip itineraries to nice hotels; Instagram- or TikTok-inspired worthy spots to unknown local gems; photogenic sceneries to more authentic views and smells. And occasionally, great spots to relax on your adventure. Because even if i enjoy walking 20'000 steps a day, I also enjoy a good spa/beach day as well!

Christina Demetriadou
Lives in Nicosia, Cyprus
I was born and raised in Ontario Canada, graduated University in Canada as a Special Education Teacher and have been teaching for the last 20 years in Nicosia, Cyprus. Definitely not something planned, just happened as a spur of the moment travel instinct, but this is where I was meant to meet my husband, love of my life and father of our 3 amazing children. Thankfully, also my better half who will never say "No" to travelling or to a trip destination surprise by me! I find that when the air begins to cool, I start looking for places to visit. Living in Cyprus, I would say is a travelling gateway to all of Europe and a true luxury. I look for places that we can take a long weekend drive to, family brunches or even find a great deal on an airline for the next holiday jet setting adventure. With school in session, it’s important to find times for breaks for the entire family, and while I am a mom of three, (Pre-Teens & Teens), it’s nice to find others who can give me fresh ideas. I’ve discovered great blogs to follow from travel research, and I’m a better person for it. Let me make you better too. Traveling with family can be difficult, trust me, I know first hand, from picky eaters, to motion sickness, but as someone who is open to sharing my adventures with the rest of you, it allows us all to know that we can do it. I am able to share the good, the bad, the ugly, the waste of money and the must-do. It’s what we’re all looking for. My guides will show you just how awesome travel can be with family, taken from my own family travels and travel guidance to becoming your new amazing trip experience.

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.
