To places we have never been, as we have never seen them – Interview with John, Fabio and Andrea, co-founders of Travel The Unwritten

To places we have never been, as we have never seen them

Interview with John, Fabio and Andrea

Creating transformative journeys that can change people’s lives is what unites everyone in Apical’s large community.

No one can understand and explain it better than the guys from Travel The Unwritten who, precisely during a trip to Kenya, thought, dreamed and conceived their project.

We met with them today and asked them to tell us how their idea came about and what obstacles they are facing along the way.

Hi guys, your project is a beautiful one and we would love to introduce it to our community, but surely you can do it better than we can, so we’ll leave the floor to you now!

Hello, and thank you very much! We are Travel The Unwritten, a team that organizes group trips to Africa and Latin America, only to those countries where we have real knowledge of the country. We want our travelers to visit places that spread projects for the well-being of our planet’s ecosystem in a human and environmental sense.

The idea to create this project came after we took a trip together to Kenya, a place where one of us lived as a cooperator for two years. We felt a desire to bring to others the experiences we were fortunate enough to be able to have. To date we have developed the upcoming itineraries, created the website, the invite-only telegram channel where we are releasing the first content, and hope to launch this summer with the first groups.

Really interesting! As you know, there are several tour operators organizing trips to these areas, what do you think distinguishes your project from others?

Let’s say our trips are not for everyone*! We want to propose something different: exploration, adventure, transformative experiences, meetings of people and cultures for people with a common mindset on issues of sustainability, human and environmental, and supporting development, not welfarism. This is what sets us apart from others

In part you have already answered this, but what do you want the impact of Travel The Unwritten to be on the territories you traverse and the populations you encounter?

We want to promote encounters with diversity, we believe in travel as a personal growth experience, and we want to contribute to the development of the areas we visit in a sustainable way.”

From what we have seen in these months you are a very close-knit and above all determined team, have you encountered difficulties and obstacles on your way?

Of course, difficulties are there for everyone! The main obstacle for us was to go from ideas to reality! Create all tasks and put them on the ground. Fortunately, Apical’s Pilot Program has helped us a lot to have clear blocks to develop and bring in correct timeframes.”

By the way, how did you get in touch with Apical and why did you decide to participate in the Pilot Program?

The Pilot Program was recommended to us by a friend. We decided to participate because we found an entity that could support our innovative drive.

Then the comparison with other projects was really interesting. I believe that the desire to create transformative experiences is the common denominator of all the projects in our Pilot edition. Then, of course, everyone declines it according to the field in which they are placed.

It was great to see how comparing even unrelated projects can enrich individual projects so much
