I think I am!
I am not a 5* girl, never have been. I like meeting people, engaging with the cultures of those I am visiting. I don’t like those generic hotels that could be anywhere in the world, I like character, engagement, a window on the country I am visiting.
The term Poshpacker is derived from the concept of an “upscale-backpacker” or as wikepedia defines it, “Poshpacking: a portmanteau of posh and backpacking, refers to backpacking with more style and money.” Poshpacking is for the discerning traveler looking to submerse themselves in unique and authentic environments.
It is about being social, meeting new people and being inspired when you are away on your travels. It is about leaving away with a great experience and story to tell. The Poshpacker, poshpacking and poshpackers encompass a new travel attitude and movement that is both aspirational yet affordable. Taken from theposhpacker.com
theposhpacker.com was founded by Anna Kojzar and Tania Cruz Morales, appealing to all generations of travelers who want to discover hand-picked “under the radar” hoteliers that stand out for their character, quirkiness, quality and experience. People love and book with Poshpacker, because of their signature P’s Factors
Presence – Privacy – Perks – People – Price – Peace of Mind
Poshpacker reminds me of my own vision behind setting up the Women’s Accommodation Network on Women Travel – connecting women to women owned accommodation around the world, that is safe, quirky, local and memorable. What do you think?
