About this trip

Get ready for an adventure that will fill the heart and belly. We pack our bags for the far off South East Asia and jump right into the bustle and history of Chiang Mai to discover the beauty and diversity of the North.


Enjoy sweet, soulful yoga classes with international teacher, spirit-junkie, food-lover, Erica Jung while overlooking the Ping River and its floating markets, navigate the the street markets for culinary heaven and daring street cart finds, and find the ultimate freedom zipping around in the ever popular tuk tuks.


We trek through the North of Thailand experiencing the diversity of the cultures that have decided to made Thailand home, where borders don't seem to exist, and in some villages, even electricity.


Submerse ourselves in its lush and vast ecology that is home to almost half of Thailands 900+ species of birds. And no one can turn down the chance to take a day of service at the elephant sanctuary loving on these gentle giants by feeding, bathing, and experiencing a day in the life with them. 


We embrace the richness of Thailand by heading down to the jaw dropping beaches of Khao Lak that find us away from the crazy that hits more touristic destinations. With a private beach to call home, stretch out, indulge in traditional thai massages, tropical eats, and hit the boats to dive into emerald green crystal clear waters to check out life under the surface. It'll feel like a dream pulling up to the Surin Islands with their lush lands, pristine beaches, and crystalline waters. 


Beachside yoga and meditation will be a must and tranquility and contentment will most defiantly be your state.


Let not only the sun warm your skin, but the heart of this country warm yours and expand your circle of life-long friends with the ever incredible crew of world travelers we call family.

With the perfect mix of action, activity, rest, relaxation, deep connection and loads of laughter, our journey to Thailand will have you seriously consider missing that return flight home.

We don't blame you.

Fierce, compassionate, and beating to the beat of her own drum, Erica Jung is one yoga teacher you want to know. She’s a New Jersey native and splits her time living there and in Hamburg, Germany. Making good use of her dual citizenship, she speaks both English and Mandarin and teaches and hosts yoga retreats all over the world. - Erica first found yoga about 13 years ago while studying psychology and nursing. She stepped into her first yoga class with a desire to become more flexible, only to discover yoga was so much more than that. It was a way to blend her WHOLE-istic philosophy and Eastern and Western Sciences together into a potent combination that brought out the highest version of self. - She's now the creator of Transformational Travel and Science of Spirit which all help people expand their perspectives and connect more fully and genuinely to their true selves, for their best life yet. _ She hopes to connect with you and share this ever exciting journey called life.

This trip can not be described. I should have paid triple what I paid for this experience. This trip was like having my hand held as I was walked through the Epic Ramayana and the footsteps of Lord Rama. It's been six months and it feels like I am still there, and I can't wait to go back. Erica brings together her own knowledge along with the loving guides who are truly subject matter experts. I think the best way to describe this trip is a spiritual transfusion of energy. The people attracted to this trip are instant family and such a source of support on a daily basis. If everyone were to go on this trip with Erica once in their life, there would be no serious conflict. I think the greatest gift of this trip is to see yourself. - James (Washington, D.C.)

It's taken me a year to sit down and write this review because honestly I'm still overwhelmed. To travel with Erica is to travel with the Divine -- There are no worries, no issues, and every moment is an experience wrapped in complete and total love. To travel with those companions called to these trips is to discover family you didn't know you had. For me this trip was so much more than an opportunity to observe mother nature in the raw of the deep African bush. It was an opportunity to connect with life in a way that I seek to emulate daily. Truly a blessing that I hope I have the opportunity to experience again with my children! - James T (Washington, DC)

Get ready for the most beautiful and loving assault on your senses. You will leave a changed person, for the better. You are in nurturing and capable hands with guides that are matter experts in the rich history of all the magical places you will visit. Don't miss the chance to go!
My deepest gratitude to Erica, Udo, and Sanjay for guiding our group through the off-beaten paths of India. It was a journey like no other where I was able to let go and enjoy the experience to its fullest knowing that all the details where taken care of. The itinerary, hotel and food choices, as well as ways of transportation were put together with much thoughts. Amazingly, there was always room to allow for the magic of the moment to shine through. Yoga was practiced as a whole in body, mind, spirit so as to plant the seed of Transformation. Thank you!!
How would I describe this trip? The value I received (and continue to receive!) goes way beyond words, but I'll try! At every step, traveling with Erica taught me that I am capable of far more than I believed. This is one of my favorite things about her: she constantly and lovingly guides people toward the best versions of themselves. This was more than a vacation - it was a healing journey through and through. I came to learn and to grow and I did. I loved traveling with our small, tight-knit group. From our first welcome dinner on Day One to hiking Macchu Picchu together at sunrise near the end of the trip, we bonded quickly and closely. Each day brought awesome conversation where we all supported one another in facing fears and challenges, and also celebrated moments of breakthrough and bravery. I believe the strength of our group is a testament to the kind of energy Erica attracts. A trip with her is basically guaranteed to be made up of open, loving, and high-minded people. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the wonderful hotels! After long days of hiking and adventuring it was amazing to come back to such great places. The rooms were clean and beautiful, the beds were cozy, the showers were hot and the food was delicious. Erica and Udo did an amazing job lining all of that up. In addition, it was a big help knowing that rides to and from the airport were covered, as well as transport during the entire trip. I was so grateful to have that all taken care of ahead of time. I also want to mention our incredible guide, Gonzalo. It was so special to be led by him as his home is in Peru and his passion and respect for the places we visited was evident. His positive presence elevated our daily activities to an even higher level, and I loved getting to engage in frequent moments where we all took quiet time to reflect on the beauty of our surroundings and to be grateful for the breathtaking nature around us. This was a truly special time in a beautiful country. I'm typically a pretty anxious person and a timid traveler, so this was definitely a move that went out of my comfort zone, but that's exactly why it meant so much to me. I learned so much from going on this journey, and the lessons just continue to unfold now that I'm back home. Erica's a truly special person and a wonderful leader. ESPECIALLY go on this trip if you're scared. There's no better person to show you that you can overcome any fear.
