Explorers: Your stories can make a huge difference to someone.

We all want to be the change that we want to see in the world. The first step comes from share your personal perspective.

You love exploration. That’s what makes you an authentic guide. You can pay it forward with your own story and reap the rewards of others’ experiences, as much as you need, when and where you need!

Your motivator: I'm working on leaving a legacy through Apto.

The universe is made up of stories, not atoms

What would happen if we all exchanged our stories? The boundaries would break and the world will see a new informed landscape.

– Muriel Rukeyser

I came to the US with my two suitcases. I landed in Atlanta then in Kansas City. It was a cold January night when I arrived and no one was waiting for me.

Apto exists so another international student, multinational employee, visitor, expat or individual living in diaspora has to go it alone. We’re a community dedicated to helping each to thrive in place, wherever it may be.

When you are traveling relocating interacting  virtually across cultures, who can help you? This is the question 2.8B humans are asking. The answer is YOU.

What’s your travel personality type?

The Apto community is filled with a universe of diversity, perspectives, experiences and personalities. Take our travel quiz to uncover your specific travel personality!

We have a lot to learn from one another, particularly when we’re honest and vulnerable enough to care to share. So, bring it. It doesn’t have to be glossy, just real.

Our community pays-it-forward by sharing experiences.

There is no such thing as an insignificant experience. If a cultural or travel event meant something to you it is likely it will have a similar impact on someone else. This means it is ripe for sharing.

Enjoy sharing your cultural experiences? You've got an audience.

Join our world of platform-agnostic storytellers. Typically, our storytelling starts with a written account. Then, there’s a visual component, either a video or photo essay. We listen, too, so feel free to share audio content.
