Kelsey had high aspirations of someday working in the corner office of a skyscraper, wearing high heels, and clacking noisily on a keyboard. Then, she moved to the northwest from Boston, truly discovered the outdoors and started traveling. There was no turning back after that. Now her days are filled with playing outside and planning her next skiing or international adventure. She’s traveled extensively in Asia and South America and spent time in Europe as well as Central America. She’s still got 163 countries to go (and 33 seemed like so many…) so it looks like there won’t be any time for skyscrapers in her future. After majoring in International Business and minoring in Asian Studies Kelsey is excited to combine her passion for travel and academic knowledge to plan some truly inspirational trips created in the wild style for those as excited about Asia as she is.

I Found Colors in India That I'd Never Seen Before in the Rainbow of Places I've Been To!

I Found Colors in India That I'd Never Seen Before in the Rainbow of Places I've Been To!
Guest review from a custom trip to India : "Better than one in six people on our planet live in India, and four in a hundred live in the U.S. Yet India's conditions are considered extreme, in spite of the fact that as a proportion of the total population they are quite common. I simply wanted to experience the other end of the spectrum of humanity, and though I'm a fairly experienced traveler, I found colors in India that I'd never seen before in the rainbow of places I've been to." Mike and Nani M. spent 3 weeks exploring India on a custom itinerary that took them from the sands of Rajasthan to the banks of the river Ganges to the foothills of the Himalayas. Their trip was initially inspired by the food trail taken by celeb food critic Anthony Bourdain but quickly morphed into a trip encompassing desert palaces, city...

Haber Family Journey Through Thailand and Cambodia - Guest Review

Haber Family Journey Through Thailand and Cambodia - Guest Review
The Haber family traveled to Thailand and Cambodia with us in December. They asked us to help plan a trip centered around one very important event - a wedding! Jon's brother was getting married in the town of Khon Kaen and they wanted to explore the region before the big day. We had some big shoes to fill and while the wedding was certainly the highlight it sounds like the day with elephants wasn't too far behind :) Here's what they had to say about their trip: What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? We enjoyed so many parts of the trip. The cooking class in Chaing Mai was excellent, definitely a favorite part of the trip. The day at the Baanchang Elephant Park was wonderful. Spending a day on motorcycles in Cambodia driving through the jungle was incredible. Seeing all of the ancient temples were amazing, though...

All Around India - Guest Review

All Around India - Guest Review
All Around India was the name of the custom itinerary we gave to an intrepid group of 5 Wildland travelers who wandered all over India for 22 days. They started in the North and visited Delhi and the Taj Mahal before setting off in search of tigers in Ranthambhore National Park. From there they jetted south to the east coast of India where they toured cardamom and tea plantations, trekked to waterfalls, and saw elaborate Hindu temples. They ended their trip with a journey to the UNESCO caves of Ellora and Ajanta before spending some time in the heart of Bollywood, Mumbai. Check out what they have to say about their experience!  What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? The Taj Mahal really was as spectacular as its reputation has it, and is a must-see sight. We also enjoyed Munnar as a welcome respite after many miles of...

Meet Your Guides: Anand Sinha

Meet Your Guides: Anand Sinha
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of  adventure trips to India is the guides. How well a guide gets along with you, a Wildland traveler, can make or break a trip. Wildland puts a lot of effort into finding the best guides for every area that we travel to. Wildland focuses on using local guides in each area, ensuring that these guides possess a seemingly unlimited wealth of knowledge about their area of expertise. The last time I traveled to India I compiled a list of questions so we could all get to know our Wildland guides a little better. I met Anand Sinha at Jamtara, a lodge in the tiger park of Pench, and it was obvious immediately that he knew his stuff. He taught me the word "crepuscular" - active at dawn and dusk- and English isn't even his first language! Anand's big smile and seemingly infinite knowledge...
