Travel isn't just about getting from one place to another, or checking off Instagrammable locations on your bucket list. It's about experiencing how people live,  in a place that's outside your normal routine and maybe your comfort zone.  We want to connect you with what makes a place unique and genuine.


Armchair travel is fun, and some  of us love trip research,  but nothing beats that moment when you stumble into the most memorable afternoon of the trip purely by chance.  We designed the UpJaunt app to inspire you at any time, but especially on the spot (perhaps when you take a wrong turn and decide to change your plans).


Connect with fellow travelers and navigate the new normal. Let's join together to share ideas and tips about where we've been and where to go next - and how to do it safely and responsibly.  We all care deeply about the places  and people we've interacted with around the world. We want to help them through this tough period so we can see them all again soon.
