Top Emerging Travel Destinations 2017

TOP EMERGING TRAVEL DESTINATIONS 2017

After traveling to 85 countries, I wanted to share the most amazing places I have experienced that are considered to be emerging destinations.

I always complete my travels on a $50/day or less budget (including international airfare) – and want to really spread the message that others can do the same!

Following my most recent travels for 8 months across 15 countries, I decided it was time to share all my advice and tips with others to help them travel.  After helping over 100 people plan, I decided to create a startup that focuses exclusively on exposing travelers to the lost cost options and carriers you cannot find online today.  The results to date are incredible, we’ve been able to get people anywhere in the world for an average of 40% less than what they would have paid without our local knowledge and sources.  This is all being built into an online platform that you will be able to access and use to book your next international adventure.

To join our prelaunch and be notified when the site is available – visit prelaunch.unboundly.com – right now we are building a technology that can get you anywhere you want to go, on any budget.
