While we love documenting and sharing our travels across the globe on social media as much as anyone (have you used our #savorthejourney tag?), we also acknowledge that deciding between filters and uploading to Instagram is precious time stolen from the moment and the magic of adventure.
Enter El Camino – our newest travel obsession that acknowledges our need to share the moment, but instead intends for us to savor the moment. Founded by bohéme-minded babes, Katalina Mayorga and Marianna Jamadi, El Camino is a visual, experiential journey that provides curated, intimate group travel experiences across the globe. El Camino plans the trips, manages logistics and takes care of all the details through your destination’s most discrete, local haunts and hideaways – consider them your on-site, insider tour guides. These curated experiences alone separate El Camino from its cheesy group tour counterparts.
But at El Camino’s core is the desire for its participants to live the true experience IRL, not through the screen of a smartphone. Each El Camino experience onboards an experienced photographer, inviting travelers to leave their cell phones at home (gasp!) and truly embrace the spirit of natural adventure. The photographer tags along, documenting each traveler’s personal journey, the sites, surrounding scenery and all of the moments you wish to remember (and then some). Each morning, El Camino travelers wake up to guaranteed 20+ curated, art directed, Instagram-perfected photos in their inbox, so you can get your social media game on strong.
El Camino is truly unlike any other group-travel experience, catering to the bohéme who wishes to unplug and #savorthejourney, but who (like us, in our social savvy mindset), places importance and appreciation in documenting their lives and stories in a beautiful way.
You live the experience, El Camino documents it. This is the future of travel. With El Camino, your memory is the ultimate travel bag.
