Our aim is to offer a unique travel experience for women where they discover the world and get to deepen their own self connection. We've designed every aspect of this retreat to empower you and to support local business owners through hands on collaborations and education. Mindful moments will be infused into each day to inspire you to connect with Medellin in a different way than you would solo. We've thought through every activity, and intentionally connected with amazing women owned businesses to give you a multi dimensional and intentional retreat experience where you can feel taken care of, and supported. Medellin is truly the city of cool, where the weather is eternally spring, and where design, food, entrepreneurship and innovation are making this city one of the most interesting places in the world.
WHO IS THIS TRIP FOR?
This trip is for women who are curious about culture, appreciate fashion (especially when it's for a cause) love good food and aren't afraid to walk off the beaten path. During our trips we always dine together for breakfast and dinner, and will always offer you our recommendations for lunch spots around the city, to get a taste of where you might be curious to eat. The whole day is designed to feel well rounded and dimensional, and a perfect balance between activity and relaxation.
We'll always schedule in some free time in case you're the more independent type and want to wander the city on your own. Your trip leader will offer 2 morning yoga sessions during this trip so that you can move your body and reflect before we start the day, but you might enjoy sleeping in, either way, you have the option! If you like hanging out with like minded women, whether you're traveling with your travel bestie or going solo, you'll have a built in community for the week.
YOUR TRIP LEADER + PHOTOGRAPHER
Dani Reidy will guide you on your Medellin experience. After researching and traveling to Colombia, she has developed relationships with a group of female entrepreneurs in the city who you'll get to hang with through out the course of the trip. The group of women you'll meet are all motivated entrepreneurs that support each other in the community. You'll not only be able to witness the network that they have developed, but feel apart of it.
Anna Meyer, will be your photographer. A highly talented professional who works in D.C. and our favorite addition to the trip. Anna inspires our guests to feel empowered getting their photos taken, and you'll leave the week with hundreds of photos to remember Medellin. Having a photographer on our trip is important to us, not just for the amazing photos you'll get, but for the opportunity it provides for you to truly be present and take in your travel experience with one less distraction.
We'll be staying in the hip neighborhood of Medellin, called El Poblado. We chose this location because of it's amazing atmosphere, modern amenities, rooftop deck and pool and because of its close proximity to all of our favorite shops and restaurants in the city. We will be within just a few blocks of where we'll dine each evening, and be able to walk out our front door to explore.
Upon registration of the trip, you'll receive all the details of your accommodations, but trust us when we say, it's awesome. From the luscious green outdoor lobby lined with restaurants and a gallery, to the jaw-dropping mountain views, unusual design details will make you laugh out loud, think again, or perhaps even learn something new. We can't wait for you to see it.
There are single and double rooms available. Single, meaning, there is one queen bed available, and double, meaning two single beds are available in the room.
