Who Are We?
We’re Randi and Michael, two friends from NYC who decided to embark on a multi-year journey throughout Central America, Europe, and Asia in the beginning of 2014. Now, over 30 countries later, we live out of their backpacks and travel full time. You can read more about us here.

Jiri Duzar, Director at CzechTourism USA & Canada
“I’ve worked with Randi and Michael from Just a Pack for several months during their trip to the Czech Republic which turned into a long-term residency in Prague. Although we never gave a definition to our DMO-blogger relationship, now when looking back, I have to say that they were true social media travel ambassadors of the Czech Republic for the whole duration of their stay and beyond.
Randi and Micheal diligently worked with us on several blogger trips, Twitter chats and Instagram takeoevers and always delivered impressive results. Randi’s writing and Michael’s photography skills create powerful storytelling combination and I can nothing but highly recommend them to any destination marketer.”
Doru Raduta, Interesting Times Bureau, Bucharest, Romania
“We operate a small walking tour organization based in Bucharest, Romania. About one month ago we were contacted by Michael and Randi, from Just A Pack with a mutually beneficial proposition.
We could not have made a better choice. At all times, they were very professional, friendly and accommodating. Moreover, because of their reach in the travel blogger community, we now constantly get requests from travel writers and Bucharest is getting way more attention, both online and on the ground. Which is a great way to market the destination and our services with minimum budget.
But what I was really impressed by, was how well they understood the city and how well they were able to communicated its spirit. This is not some Lonely Planet, run-of-the-mill, same-same-but-different tourist information, but a truthful and honest perspective of Bucharest.
As I told Randi and Michael, by the time they left, they had become Bucharestians.”
Steve Vaile, Owner, Mad Monkey Hostels, Cambodia
“We have worked with Just a Pack with great results on a number of campaigns for Mad Monkey Hostels. In particular, we have been impressed with the reach and engagement when working with them for featured posts and competitions, many of which have proven to show up within Google results near the top within a couple of days.
I would highly recommend that any property consider working with Just a Pack.”
Karina Behar Murillas, Camí dels Bons Homes Regulatory Counsel, Spain
“We are very happy to have hosted Michael and Randi of Just a Pack and Veggie Visa on the Trail of the Cathars (Camí dels Bons Homes), and to have worked with them! Their motivation for hiking, the history of the Cathars, and their way of seeing life made us connect very quickly.
The articles resulting from their five day hike in the the Pyrenees are attractive, fresh, and full of historical rigor! Their dynamism on social networks and posting about the Route of the Cathars in Spain, especially for the English-speaking public, has given us good results!
From the Camí dels Bons Homes Regulatory Counsel we recommend Just a Pack and Veggie Visa for their dedication, professionalism and dynamism!”
