CHRISTIAN COUGHLAN, CO-FOUNDER
Philosopher, Dreamer, Sailor, Husband and Father
Christian believes true happiness is found when we make connections with others, and that travel helps us to more easily access our authentic self.

He is the owner of Turtle Rock Consulting, a technology consulting firm which provides technology, business intelligence and project leadership expertise to clients both big and small.
WHO WE ARE
We are travelers inspired by the unmapped restaurants, the generosity and pride of locals in the places they call home, the promise of surprise when we’ve abandoned the guide books, the road less traveled.
We exist to connect the world's travelers with the heart and soul of their destination and the stories it holds, shared by its proudest residents through personal connections & meaningful experiences.
No more boring business trips, no more package vacations or “me-too” destinations. No more missing out on the hidden treasures in the places we visit. Instead we seek to connect the adventuresome with their adventures, the culture seeking with an authentic experience, the curious with their characters.
