Please raise your hand if you’re a broke-20-something-year-old who is a bit burnt out from living a simple life, so you’ve decided to “live your best life” by traveling around and working odd jobs.
Now, raise your hand if you’re someone who always texts your group chat with your buds about the horrendous Tinder dates you’ve been on, the weird yet quirky dude you met at your hostel in Budapest, or how you scammed your way into a museum in Mexico City.
Now if this is you, keep reading!

There was never a place on the internet
where global minds could meet and share stories about travel fails, international lovers, and everything in between. No one was catering to those bold enough to click book on a cheap flight with a 20-hour layover. And there was never information to help identify if that hostel in Prague just booked was a score or a sketch.
Most importantly, there was never an international and multilingual community of people who all stopped making excuses, and started living the lives they’ve always wanted. In other words, people who Shut Up and Go.
That destination didn’t exist before, until now.
What are you waiting for? Shut up and go submit!
