While no alcohol was involved in the formation of the podcast idea, 16 tacos were.

The squad consists of Kimberly, Brittanie, Jamal, and Zeina. Today, they live in San Diego, CA, but they all grew up together in the same small hometown. They are 4 different personalities, opinions, and viewpoints - which could be a huge travel disaster or, a fun-loving, hilarious travel posse. They think the latter.

 
 

It all began in the back of a cab in Mexico City at 1am...

Collectively, they've traveled to over 50 countries, speak 3 languages, lived in four countries, gone through 8 passports, downed countless drinks, and had more freak-outs than they're willing to admit. 

They never miss an opportunity to rag on one another, laugh together, hit up a roof-top bar, or miss a breakfast buffet.

The Travel Squad Podcast was created so that the Squad can share their many hilarious and embarrassing stories and adventures they've experienced, and continue to experience, on their journey. Tune in every Travel Tuesday for laughs, travel tips and hacks. They're here to inspire you to go on your own adventure, even if it starts in your own backyard!

 
 

They first hiked the Inca Trail in June 2016. From there, they never could have imagined continuing on as the Travel Squad the way they have. 

The Squad regularly travels the world, drives across America, hikes some of the hardest, and "easiest," trails in the world, and shares tiny rooms in the pursuit of a dollar.

They've shared clothes, gloves, and even toothbrushes (although unintentionally on the last one.)


WE BELIEVE IN:

WE ARE NOT ABOUT:

Letting the airplane price determine our destination | Breakfast buffets | Ourselves | Kindness | Generosity | Shower rotations | A strong squat game for when you have to use filthy bathrooms |


Not wearing your facemask in public (mask up!) | Keeping your airplane seat reclined during meal service | Taking a great picture of a fellow traveler only to have them take a bad one of us in return | Littering | Pushing & crowding to get off the plane faster |
