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 was a trip of a lifetime. It’s hard to put into words what this trip meant to me. I’ve been to India a few times and I felt ready to experience some new places with a different leader. I met Erica on my first India trip in 2016 and she made such an impact on that trip and in my life since then. Erica goes above and beyond what a “trip curator” is. She will take you on an adventure...physically, emotionally, and spiritually if that’s what you’re seeking. If you are only prepared for one of those—she will help you attain that! Honestly, Erica is everything. If you get sick-she will do whatever it takes to help you get well. If you need a shoulder to cry on-she’s there. She sees the whole group and takes the time to make everyone feel comfortable and accepted. She’s easy going when you want to shop an extra 5 minutes or if you need another ginger lemon tea. She’s informative about the places we go and you never feel like a tourist. I didn’t have to worry or stress about what was next. I’m looking forward to my next trip wherever she goes!
I’m still unpacking mentally from the India trip! Where to begin to describe the experience? I met Erica at a Bhakti workshop in January 2019, this is where I learned about the India retreat. Although I only just met Erica, her energy was infectious and I knew I wanted to go. Of course I was nervous, not knowing anyone and traveling so far from home, but I signed up for the ‘magical carpet ride’ and have no regrets. The trip was certainly magical with all the culture, foods, sights and once in a lifetime experiences. The group of yogis that joined the trip were wonderful, we all bonded with the help of great activities orchestrated by Erica and Udo. Every detail was so well planned with the support of the team put together by Erica and Udo. I always felt supported and secure, not a care or worry - I was where I needed to be at all times. I would highly recommend traveling with Erica and Udo!
It was an Absolutely Amazing Experience! Erica and Udo are a great team! I loved the group size which was small and intimate. They both held space for each of us with extreme care. They are incredibly knowledgeable and really fun to be with! I can’t wait to travel with these two again!
WOW! This journey is hard to put into words... but India is guarantee for a life-changing experience. I feel beyond thankful for everything that Erica and her ‚team‘ made possible for us! We travelled to sacred areas of india where pure magic unfolt. It was wild and soft and hilarious and sad and everything at the same time... All this deep experience and all the transformation was possible only cause the team took care of literally everything! Inside and out! Such a comfort and ease in handling every day travel with everything going on around in wild India... I absolutely recomment this trip - and let me say... I am usually not a group traveller type ;)
Amazing trip - Erica and Udo have really picked the top locations and accomodations - just mesmerizing to do yoga overlooking the Red Sea or in the desert in Wadi Rum. Erica is an amazing yoga teacher, everytime I practice with her I learn something new. My only regret is that we stayed only one night in Wadi Rum...
