A letter from our founder

Hi there!

My name is Melissa, and I am the founder here at PlanIt Trek. You may be wondering why I decided to start PlanIt Trek, and my answer is simple, planning for travel is way harder than it needs to be.

Having visited over 25 countries, I can tell you planning for a trip never got easier, until now. Between scouting out new locations to visit, to planning and packing for visiting those locations, prepping for travel can start to feel like a full time job. However, once you get past the stresses of planning a trip, traveling itself is incredible rewarding.

My desire for everyone to experience travel is what led me to create PlanIt Trek. Travel inspires you to step out of your comfort zone, and immerse yourself in a foreign world, where you are inspired and encouraged to think differently while learning more about this vast world we live in. Imagine how much better the world might be if everyone felt empowered to book a flight to a foreign land and just go.

I used our first product, Capsule Wardrobe, on a recent trip to the Balkans. Despite developing the product, I was still in awe of how well it worked. The night before my trip I simply slid the packing folders into my backpack, and once abroad I was easily able to make an outfit each morning referencing the style guide. I looked cute yet spent basically no time getting ready. Even more, I had an outfit for every occasion. From clubbing on the Splavs in Serbia, visiting churches in Bosnia, and taking 5 hour city walking tours I never felt limited with my clothing options.

I am so excited to be launching PlanIt Trek, and developing products to make your travel experiences better. Starting with our first product, Capsule Wardrobe, and every product hereafter, we are passionate about making traveling simpler for everyone. We can’t wait to see where our products help you go!


Let's get trekking!
