When it comes right down to it, travel is about people. It's about understanding different ways of going about this bizarre experience called life. It's why we care about everything we see in a new place: architecture and art, nature and nightlife. It all feels new. It all feels different.

This is a community for connecting with humans on the ground. For learning about places and communities by joining them, first-hand. For taking advice from people on restaurants and logistics and destinations from the very same people you'll meet when you get there.

Pretty cool, right? Welcome to Authentic Travelers.
