10 travel memes to post on your next trip

We wait forever for our upcoming trips. Or at least it feels like forever. After waiting that long, you certainly win the right to go overboard and post more memes than ever, don’t you agree? Well, since you’re too busy enjoying yourself in your awesome trip, we went ahead and selected a few travel memes for you to post, so everybody and their mother know you’re having too much fun!

 

Before the trip:

 

Gotta let everybody know that the countdown has begun!

 

 

Just to let them know that you’re traveling. With them or without them. Maybe with this little push will make them finally join you.

 

Because there is at least one bad side to travel.

During the trip:

 

Some people opt for one or another. We happen to think you can have both. Why not travel with the kids? What do we all have in common? Even when we’re traveling, we’re thinking about our next trip.

 

 

Just to make sure your friends and family know what they’ll have to deal with when you come back from your fabulous month in Europe.

 

This is of public interest, and extremely important: Don’t ever kneel in Paris unintentionally. But, if you have the intention, it’s probably the best way to do it, as long as you make sure to provide for a great picture and send us the invitation for the big day afterwards!

 

After the trip:

 

Gently remind everyone that you’re are not coming back loaded with gifts, since you wisely invested on a lot of awesome experiences. Maybe a good soul can invite you to a free lunch, now that you are back without a single coin.

 

Getting back to reality is no joke. We sympathize. And so will your friends after you post this meme. They may even forgive you for over posting about your trip when they see how much you’re suffering!

How to survive long airport connections with kids?

They should make a new Mission Impossible where Ethan Hunt has to spend long hours on an airport connection with a bunch of kids. While we’re not going to pretend we have a solution for all you distressed parents trying to figure out what to do with your kids for so long, we’re going to try to help with some tips. After all, this is our highest mission: making trip planning easier for everybody 😉

It’s all about the perspective.

Any kid’s excitement about flying gets old pretty quick. After watching cartoons for hours and uncomfortably napping for a while, they quickly realize there’s nowhere else to go. So, if you think about it, long connections are a blessing! Welcome them as an opportunity to reset your kids’ mood by letting them spend all that contained energy ⚡️

The world is around you.

Have you ever thought that airports contain the greatest diversity within a couple hundred of acres? Depending on the age group of the children this can be a great learning opportunity for little curious minds. Take the chance to show them live how people can be different yet the same. Google different countries on your phone, show them where they are located. Try to find out what they eat and what represents good manners in their country. From observing one single person, the conversation can go really far, and who knows, inspire another trip!

Let them go wild

“Now I know this might seem crazy. But having 3 very energetic boys myself, I actually enjoy connections, cause that’s when I find a good contained spot at the airport and let them go crazy, playing Power Rangers, Superheroes… whatever they need so we go back to the plane with all that energy behind us”, says our our Co-Founder and CEO, Lizia Santos. Kids will be kids, and the best thing you can do is provide them a safe way to spend all that energy, so once you board again, they’re ready for another round of sitting for hours.

Socialize and feed their cravings

Of course, there’s always the obvious option of seeking a Children’s Play Area. Not all airports have it, but as an alternative try to find a family with kids in similar age groups. All kids welcome making new friends!

And since the airlines’ cuisine isn’t known as the best, how about exciting the kids with the amazing opportunity of picking their own food at the airport? This will sound marvelous after hours of eating whatever it’s offered on the airplane.


We didn’t fool you. The long airport connections with kids remain as an impossible mission. But at least you know we care enough to try helping you 😻. Good luck on your next connections!

City Catt, who?

We could’ve gone funny, serious or sarcastic. We chose none of those. Instead, here goes our poetic version of what City Catt is:

The smell of coffee locally grown and freshly brewed, complemented by the just out of the oven secret recipe chocolate chip muffin – the best you’ve ever had. The breathtaking view of the valley that you can only enjoy after hiking the oldest local trail, that’s best seen right before sunset. The shop that has a selection of handmade items, that find their way into your home because no other place on earth sells those things.

The happy sound of happy children running around the best playground in town, which happens also to be a castle, a boat, a fort, or whatever fits in their imagination. The best spot at the stadium, where you combine the best view, the best acoustic, and the best hot dog vendor.

Oh, the things you can only know when you call someplace your home.

Oh, the places you’d like to know.

What if anywhere could feel like home?

What if anywhere could feel like home, with a friend, who will unlock all these secrets for you, and let you experience the best, most unique and most valuable things in each city?

What if on each trip, you’d have the possibility to access insider status, and cross the bridge that divides travelers from locals? What if your visit to a new city could feel like a visit to a friend’s home? No unnecessary lines, no overpaying for things, no lost time trying to find things, no frustration over not seeing what you wanted, no disappointment over wrong expectations, no more selfies over portraits. When you connect to the people who call your destination home, then it becomes their job to make you feel welcomed. You wouldn’t be just a traveler, but a guest.

Let’s bring back the element of surprise to traveling. Let’s bring back the possibility of making friends everywhere you go. Friends think alike and like the same things. Let us connect you to like-minded people wherever you go because someone like you will show you to places you like.

Nice to meet you! Enough with the poetry, let’s have fun together!
