You go on a bucket list trip

Hi there!  I'm Kenia, owner of Culture Pursuits!

I came to a point when I needed to reset my life… I wanted to get fit, so I started running and ran my first 10-mile race. I wanted to spruce up my appearance, so I subscribed to Rent the Runway, threw away my glasses and got contacts. I wanted to travel to more exotic places, so I stopped going to the same places every year.

And then it happened!

You know those moments when the world seems to crack open and you never see things the same way again??? Mine happened in Vietnam, when I got to stand in the middle of beautiful  green rice paddys and meet some of the kindest people in the world. It was here that I decided that I wanted to help people who are curious about traveling to places they have never been before, but are uncomfortable planning trips on their own.

I want to help people stretch their travel muscles through immersive travel experiences that foster personal growth and connectedness to the world.

I specialize in travel to remote places in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, and raise the comfort level of my clients by vetting and working with only the most experienced and knowledgeable travel providers in a specific country. I create unique travel itineraries that consist of a mix of culture, culinary, adventure and relaxing activities.

I help people travel differently…

What people are saying about Culture Pursuits

"We've just returned from a 11-day trip to Africa and are still dreaming about it! From start to finish, our experiences prior, during and after the trip have been top notch. Kenia was so informative and helpful as we were putting together the itinerary. Our accommodations  and activities were wonderful! We truly glamped in style! We saw animals right outside our tent, but felt very safe!"

- Pete, Illinois

"This is an experience beyond joy! I celebrated my 45th birthday on a trek in Vietnam and it was absolutely amazing. Culture Pursuits is superior in offering the true Vietnam experience. Authentic delicious food, comfortable village homestays and hotels. Superior guides. Outstanding scenery that will make your heart sing! Bucket list must do!!

- Alex, Pennsylvania

"Working with Kenia was a pleasure. Having the Maldives on my bucket list for years and then having it become a reality was what Kenia did for us. After meeting with her and going over things that we would like to experience on our trip she was able to pull it all together for us so we wouldn’t have any worries at all. She pulled pieces together blending in what we wanted and also what she thought would make our trip an even better experience. she was right on point with all of the plans !! We didn’t have to worry about anything. She was also available for any questions or concerns that we had before,during and after the trip. If you are looking for someone who will listen to what your wants and needs are and not just someone who’s going to sell you something because it would make their commissions higher I would highly recommend Kenia to plan your next trip. We have already reached out to her to help plan our next trip.
