1. The Call to Adventure

Your adventure begins with a 30-minute call with one of our Travel Mentors. On this Call to Adventure, we’ll get to know one another better, discuss the specifics of where you want to go and what you want to do, and equally importantly, get into WHY you are going and what you want to get out of your Journey. All of this helps us craft the perfect adventure for you! 


2. Collaborative Trip Design

After the Call to Adventure, our Journey together continues: We'll agree on a high-level outline of your Journey with things like tentative dates, destinations, kinds of experiences and activities you want, and types of accommodations. After making your $500 HERO Pledge, your Travel Mentor begin creatively and meticulously handcrafting every element of your Journey. Throughout the trip design process, you’ll actively collaborate with your Travel Mentor in architecting the perfect trip for you. Through face-to-face meetings, calls, emails, and video conferences, you and your Mentor will craft an adventure that will change your life forever!


3. The (Pre-) Departure

Once you and your Mentor have finalized the itinerary for your Journey and you’ve submitted your payment, the next stage of your adventure begins. You and your Mentor will engage in a comprehensive and holistic pre-departure preparation process that includes a call w/ your Mentor that is designed to inspire, motivate, and inform you about what it means to ‘Travel like a HERO.’ Your Mentor will also give you a list of suggested pre-departure reading materials and videos to watch as well as other resources and will be available for continued discussions about how to bring more purpose, intention, meaning, and mindfulness to your travel experience. Finally, you’ll have a final pre-departure call to review trip logistics and details one last time before you travel.


4. The Journey

Your adventure itself is a collaboratively-crafted combination of exciting physical activities, powerful cultural encounters, meaningful conversations, time for personal reflection, time spent in nature, health and wellness experiences, and alone time to explore the destinations you visit. Explorer X will provide additional tools and access to your Travel Mentor to make sure you are supported on Your HEROs Journey!


5. The Return of the HERO

Just because your trip is over doesn’t mean the Journey is finished! You’ll have the opportunity to work with your Travel Mentor after you get back to make sense of what you experienced and develop an action plan for changing your life and transforming the world around you!
