Trend: 'different holiday'

Trend andere vakantie
Traveling in a meaningful way is upcoming. Magazine FLOW interviewed Tessa aan de Stegge, founder of Purpose Lab, about hts trend. World citizens and locals find each other easily via smart online platforms. How about working on a sleepfarm. There are lots of sympathetic initiatives that enable us to give a deeper meaning to holidays and contribute to the places we visit.

A different holiday

Home swapping, house sitting, volunteer work abroad in exchange for food and accommodation. These activities are not new, but the internet makes it much easier to connect with people and their initiatives. Just like the rise of exchange of goods, meals and cars in the sharing economy, also in the travel industry these ways of traveling are growing rapidly. All over the world is it possibly to choose a different angle of traveling. One person chooses volunteer work, the other opts for a WWOOF trip to Canada.

'Likeminded people find each other online'

Journalist Anneke Bots wrote an ode to a 'different holiday' in lifestyle magazine FLOW. She interviewed Purpose Lab's founder Tessa and four experts by experience. Tessa: “Initially this way of traveling became popular because of financial reasons, but now that that the economy is doing well, it remains popular. We have become world citizens, and from all over the world like-minded people find each other online."
