Departure Lounge’s Founder Keith Waldon, along with his friend and business partner Christie Holmes, created a very special family travel company called Global CommUnity.  Departure Lounge is the exclusive seller in Austin of Global CommUnity family trips. 

Global CommUnity provides one-week itineraries all around the world, and these itineraries come in different versions based on the age of children and price point, so that your family (and particularly your kids) can get the most out of exploring other cultures. 

Each trip also includes a giving-back experience for the whole family.

Global CommUnity also offers long-term travel planning for families based on an in-depth interview with the whole family.  For parents and grandparents who are focused on raising global citizens, having a plan for these few precious years we have to travel with our children is very important.  Global CommUnity helps you create a master plan that you can use as a guide as you put together your future adventures.

Finally, Global CommUnity encourages you to take time to learn about the destination and culture before you visit, so the company provides really engaging and imaginative pre-trip materials that make it easy to dive into exploring your next destination as a family.
