This recent internet discovery makes my wanderlust burst tenfold!
A new startup called Pack Up + Go is a travel agency with a twist–you don’t know where you’re headed until you get to the airport or train station! You’ll open the sealed enveloped and BAM! There’s your destination!
But no worries; everything is legit. Accommodations are safe, your itinerary will be tailored to your interests, and you can select a package according to your budget which includes travel and lodging. The trips are all two-night / three day getaways, so travel time is kept under four hours to give you enough time to explore your destination.
The best part? The founder of the company, Lillian Rafson, was just 23-years-old when she launched the company! 23!
Rafson keeps destinations within the continental US to boost local economies and support small businesses via tourism.
It sounds so exciting for those of us who enjoy a little bit of spontaneity whilst maintaining our safety and security.
I just may book a surprise trip one of these days!
