Travel Vlog


Studies show that the average person will spend 10 to 30+ hours planning their travel. 

The Travel Attendant has put in those hours for you: researching reviews, the best neighborhoods to stay in, the travel time to get from one place to the next, the best restaurants, bars, and shows to indulge in, and countless other details that might concern you. Not only have we done the research, but we've also traveled there to make sure that everything we've researched is true.  


 Do you want to make a difference? 

Our strength is amplified with collective action, and you can help make a difference with The Travel Attendant today!

The support we receive is a huge driver of the good work we do in addressing some of society’s most challenging problems.





 In November and December 2022.  The Travel Attendant will serve a hot meal and give hygiene kits to 300-400 men that are experiencing homelessness.  As always, we appreciate anything you can give. Click here to Give
