WE WANT TO BUILD A COMMUNITY OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO COMMIT TO #DECOLONIZETRAVEL
We want to represent the diverse and multicultural world that we want to live in. Our community celebrates difference and curiosity and goes above and beyond to make the world more inclusive while at home as well as abroad. Racism, sexism, hate, and xenophobia do not have a place in the world we are trying to create.
WE ARE A COMPANY BY TRAVELERS FOR TRAVELERS
Just like you, we want to support local businesses and avoid big tourism companies. We want to meet new people and learn about different cultures. We made Scapade not only for you, but for ourselves.
WE’RE TIRED OF TRADITIONAL TRAVEL (AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO)
We thrive on connecting people around the world based on their interests, whether language-learning, cultural exchange, or just more authentic human connection. The concept of ‘locals vs. travelers’ does not resonate with us because we believe that they are one and the same - people who just want to connect with the world around them.
WE SAY WHAT’S ON OUR MINDS AND ARE NOT AFRAID TO BE WRONG
Human beings are imperfect and so are we. This excited us because we know there will always be room for growth. We are aggressive in our messaging and outspoken on our views around travel, sustainability, and everything in-between. We want you to know exactly who we are because we want to know exactly who you are.
WE SEE VULNERABILITY AS A STRENGTH
Yes, we help people with similar interests find each other, but our users still have to do the rest. You see, connection is born out of strangers feeling at home when they are with each other and true connection isn’t possible without embracing vulnerability.
Travelers & locals who inspire us
