About the Founder – Karen Rodrigues
Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than by the ones you did do.
Explore – Dream – Discover. — Mark Twain
I was born with the wanderlust gene; friends term it as “ants in the pants” syndrome. My urge to explore and my curiosity to learn about new cultures, human behaviors, culinary experiences, adventures, has been insatiable and has led me to over 40 countries till date. Be it river rafting in Bali, trekking and meeting local tribes in the Amazon rainforests, dancing samba in Brazil, drinking exquisite wine in South France, zip lining through the cloud forests of Ecuador or watching a Formula 1 race in Monaco, my travel escapades have taught me something new every time and it makes me open to our world at large and what it has to offer in its simple or exotic forms. Every country is unique, every experience indescribable! My experience in the corporate world, devising and implementing strategies, has made me realize that every small piece matters in creating success. And in the travel business, every detail matters. Travel has always been a big part of who I am and the desire to discover many more places still excites me.
Out of this very desire came Funky Travels. Why Funky you would ask? You and I are looking for fun, unique, novel travel itineraries, not the usual top of the shelf or big group package tours. Be it a dream trip to South America or an African Safari or an Antarctica expedition, we all want to “See our world, our way”. Funky Travels does not over promise, but what we promise is a travel experience filled with memories for years to come.
