our core values
The ultimate goal behind Travel World Culture is to create a community of knowledgeable travelers. Gavin and Jess, the founders of TWC, hope to base this community off of our core values:
Community & Connections
Affordability & Accessibility
Supporting local & giving back
Sustainability & respect to all people, plants, and animals
TWC has made it a part of our mission to give back to the countries that have given us so much. For every TWC trip, a portion the trip’s profits are donated to a charity within that country.
We consult with our local partners to make sure that the charities we donate to are doint what is needed most. We cherish our local connections in each destination and believe that these relationships are part of what makes our trips the best they can be.

we keep it
How are we able to make these close relationships and personally pick each element of our trip packages?
After extensive research, selling our cars and other valuables, and taking a leap of courage, we moved towards a life of travel. We stay for an extended period of time in each destination that we plan a trip. This allows us to find the coolest experiences, best deals, and awesome local partners to work with.
As we have been nonstop traveling since we graduated from college, we also happily share updates on and advice regarding our "digital nomad" lifestyle. If you feel stuck because you want to change your life in a way that veers off of what is expected of you, know that it’s okay to live a lifestyle others may not understand.
