Travel enables what we call the stretch. The stretch is what happens to us when we allow our worldview to be shaped by the cultures, experiences, personalities, lifestyles, foods, religions, histories and opinions that are different than what we surround ourselves with everyday. It’s the people we interact with on an adventure – whether they’re fellow travelers in our group or people we meet along the way – who create the stretch. And it’s from the stretch that we grow and become more empathetic to world around us. Click here to learn more about this point of view.
Living Big is here to encourage more women to get out there and start traveling and adventuring, regardless of their race, religion, age, country of origin, sexual or gender identity, or political affiliation. Living Big does not discriminate in the hiring and firing of staff or independent contractors, the provision of services, or who enables our clients the opportunity to experience the stretch. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone. While our Hosted Adventures and Adventure Club events are for women, men can share in the Living Big style of travel through our custom Travel Design services. Click here to learn more.
Our philosophy is that all women who join for our Hosted Adventures and Adventure Club events should be safe and comfortable from judgment from other women in the group, and it’s our job as Trip Hosts to protect and honor that to the best of our abilities. If you’re on board with this philosophy, and can join us in creating a safe, comfortable and judgment-free zone, then we’d love to have you join for an adventure!
This philosophy also extends to the physical safety of our clients. If at any point a woman on a Hosted Adventure or Adventure Club event is violent, or threatens violence towards any other person (i.e. other women on the trip, the Trip Host, or people we meet along the way) the Trip Host has the discretion to ask the woman to leave immediately at their own expense. Violence of any kind will not be tolerated.
Thanks for joining us, and supporting our mission to encourage more women to get out there and start traveling, adventuring and stretching.
