A Letter to Our Community

Hi all,

Can you believe that we have already reached November? Somehow, we’ve survived the craziness of 2020 so far to make it all the way here. With just two months left in this year, it has had us thinking, reflecting, and wanting to reach out to you all, virtually of course! (although we’d love to give you a big hug!)

We know that 2020 has been a hard year for many people in our community. It has shed a very bright light on the fact that we have been taking for granted the ability to travel easily to new and exciting places. With the world still sitting in a place of uncertainty, travel seems to be at the forefront of that question mark. 

The unknown can, at times, feel very discouraging. So, if you are feeling that way and you are unsure of what the future of travel looks like, we want you to know that we are here for you. We are a travel resource, and that includes being a resource for the times when travel is a bit more difficult and in some cases, not even a reality.

Here at Wild Bum, we want to remain hopeful. We are the type to keep it real and give you the facts, but we also like to look on the bright side. And throughout all of this, we have seen just how amazing a community of travelers can be, even when they can’t do what they love to do… TRAVEL!

At the center of this community, is our Guide Architects. We have over 615 people living all over the world and creating these amazing travel resources for you! How cool is that?! We are blown away by this remarkably talented, inspiring, and travel-loving crew. They are busy curating the most amazing travel guides for you to use the second that you can. 

We are constantly adding new, adventurous souls to this community of travelers. So, for those of you who are new here, we want to say a big WELCOME! We are so glad to have you. Whether you are a new architect or someone who is dreaming up the trip of a lifetime as soon as the world calms down, we truly couldn’t be happier that you are here.

So, what about us? What’s our goal? It’s really imperative that we all understand what we at Wild Bum are aspiring to do. Because it’s BIG. It’s life-changing. We all share a deep passion and enthusiasm for travel, but it’s so much more than that. 

At Wild Bum, we believe that travel is NOT a luxury, but rather an essential part of our health and well-being. We are the thought leaders that have started a movement of #wildbumming, encouraging people to use their hard-earned vacay days, and get out there and explore…for all of its life-changing magic. We believe in the science behind travel, in building community while supporting local businesses and people. In supporting and promoting sustainable travel. We believe travel is essential for education, connection, development, health, and overall humanity! 

Now more than ever, these areas of life are so very important. Health and wellness, connection, education, and supporting one another. Please know that we are out here doing everything we can to build and grow Wild Bum authentically, organically, and with the sole purpose of cultivating something you, our community of travelers, are proud to be a part of.

Forever wildbumming,


Founder of Wild Bum


PS: Here are a few exciting updates for what’s coming in the near future for Wild Bum!

1. We are working hard behind the scenes to transition our entire site to a new platform – Wild Bum Version 2.0! We are beyond excited. While much of the site will look the same, it’s functionality will be a much-improved experience!

2. The Wild Bum Shop is coming! This has been in the works for a while now and we couldn’t be more thrilled to roll it out and get you all decked out in our swag.
