As travellers, we are conscious about how our presence impacts the places that we visit.
We choose to have a more positive impact as we move through the world and interact with people and nature by respecting local cultures, supporting local communities and caring for the environment.
We prefer ‘homes away from home’ that promote authentic local experiences, create joy around being healthy and provide a high standard of comfort, nurturing and wellbeing in a sustainable way.

Tyler is a founding member of itmustbeNOW.com. One of his favorite quote comes from an old Greek proverb, “A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they will never sit in.” He considers himself privileged to be able to travel extensively at a young age and believe his generation should travel consciously and connect with global cultures to realise that we are all the same, and should only support companies that seriously help people and planet to make sure we have a better tomorrow.
