Why Every Traveler Needs a Tribe

Traveling with like-minded people just makes the experience better.

Last year, we visited the small town of San Candido/Innechen in South Tyrol, Italy. From the moment we set eyes on it, we knew it was special. We spent a few days there but it was just not enough. Ever since then we always wanted to come back and experience it with like-minded people. People who were keen to explore the magical Dolomites.

Why on Earth would we not want to return and share this gorgeous place with friends? Why would we not want to take the opportunity to hike around the infamous UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Tre Cime (which we sadly did not see the first time we visited) and actually spend a night sleeping in a mountain cabin at the foot of these iconic peaks? Why?!?

Well, we couldn’t think of one reason not to.

Cue #TheDoloMeet – an Instameet (an Instagram photography adventure) we organised because we wanted to get together with people who felt the same as we did about adventure and about collaborating as creatives.

Early mornings, steep cliffs, long hikes, clear lakes, delicious food, an encounter with llamas, and some of the most breathtaking photo opportunities, was what unfolded shortly after we gathered some of our favourite photographers from Central Europe. The content we created and the bonds we formed were magical and for that reason finding your “tribe” as Sir Ken Robinson says is essential for you to be happy, especially as a creative.


Besides an awesome hashtag (#TheDoloMeet – an Instameet at the Dolomites….come on!) and some beautiful photography, we have this video to showcase an unforgettable weekend.

Shout out to our friends @julian_rwl, @claudio.x@sieklas, @federicograziati and @filpfaifer who joined in on the madness and made the weekend epic!

So the next time we go, who is coming with?
