This intimate 8-day road-trip with Laura Austin is designed to have people disconnect from their busy lives and reconnect with nature, themselves and each other. The experience is crafted to instil a mindful approach to storytelling through photography and the importance of being present in life. Guests will enjoy great photo opportunities and photography masterclasses with host, Laura Austin, as well as a full-day workshop with Murmur – the Wellness experts – in addition to art tours and hiking. This road-trip showcases the beauty of California including Joshua Tree National Park, Bombay Beach, and Pacific Highway 1 to Big Sur National Park. Guests will have the opportunity to disconnect with Murmur, connect with each other and experience the open road together in an Airstream, learning Laura’s art of visual storytelling and her personal journey as a photographer.

Wellness experts Murmur have designed a full day “airplane mode” workshop comprising breath-work, yoga, Japanese Reiki, meditation and Thai massage in a communal environment, with healthy food freshly prepared. The workshop is designed to provide relief from the stress of urban life and to reconnect consciously with one’s inner-self. 

“Some people road-trip to get away from societal issues. According to the Enterprise Annual Weekend Getaway Survey, 85% of respondents said they plan to escape on a weekend trip in 2018, up from 78% in 2017. When asked why they want to escape more than before, the top reasons were stress (43%), news (39%), the current political climate (38%), and social media (24%).”

“Big Sur with its dramatic coastline edged up to dense forests filled with giant redwood trees is my favorite place to escape to when I am in need of a breath of fresh air from the city.”

The trip is in collaboration with Satopia Travel and official partner: Airstream, who are providing a convoy of Airstream trailers for the duration of the itinerary. This is the first time Airstream is giving people access to try out an Airstream on the road before purchasing as part of their commitment to enhancing their experiential brand.

Satopia Travel has also teamed up with a number of fantastic sponsors to outfit each guest with gear from Danner Shoes, One Eleven Watches, and Herschel Bags. Guests can kick back and enjoy a refreshing beer or cocktail at the campsites provided by Duvel Craft Beer and Fling Craft Cocktails for the duration of the trip.
