“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau
Teknomadics.com was started in 2009 by MeghanRae & Lilia, who after meeting through a connection on Couchsurfing.org travelled the world together for nearly half a decade. Their vision was to propagate useful positivity and action steps to catalyze meaningful change; to inspire you to chase your dreams.
Our mission is to promote peace and understanding across cultures by bringing you uplifting, informative, and fun stories from the road. Here you will find showcased people who are BEING the change they want to see in the world.
Along the way, they documented sustainable projects, community based tourism, promoted sustainable living and offered folks a unique look into the lifestyle of the technomad. Their adventures together took them to hidden treasures all over the world, festivals, inspiring gatherings, and to mountain tops to partake in special ceremonies with the native peoples.
While exploring Thailand, Meghan worked as a Teacher Collaborator and Community Outreach volunteer with the Peace Corps, and Lilia worked as a Web Design, Social Media & Interactive Marketing consultant. They broadcasted their adventures through their Web Series “Technomads Roving Thailand,” where they brought YouTubers along for the ride!
In 2014, Teknomadics piloted a 14-Day Adventure Tour of Thailand with a group of friends based on their experiences with great success.
Currently, Meghan is pursuing a career as a Yoga instructor, and Lilia has taken the reigns of Teknomadics to bring more uplighting, community-based adventure stories from the road. Lilia has also begun offering custom tours for booking via TribeJoy, the world’s first fair-trade travel community.
Expanding from tours of Thailand, TribeJoy offers programs to new destinations like the Galapagos, Amazon, Bali, and Cuba, with new destinations coming quickly as our technomads continue to explore the world.
