Join Michaela as she digs deeper into the growing trend of transformative travel and how especially Millennial travelers are seeking more meaningful experiences and genuine local connection every where they go.

She starts her adventure in the jungles of Panama at Kalu Yala, a self-proclaimed mind spa and eco-lifestyle development.

Where Michaela met founder and CEO Jimmy Stice to learn more about the intersection of travel, sustainability and social good. The jungle immersion provided a platform for cultural exchange and diverse experiences, such as connecting with the local community through food, hiking, and dancing before her adventure led her to the beaches of Bocas del Toro to explore how education and surfing can work hand in hand.
