The Tribe, created by Evita Robinson and stemming from her travel series Nomadness TV, is an urban, travel, online social community of over 15,000 members. We're the edgy, under represented demo in the international travel industry, and we've formed our own Tribe. In the platform, we share stories, advice, photos and conversation about our personal experiences around the world. We are the new age travel movement! Must have at least one passport stamp to join. Get it, and welcome to the family!

"The Nomad·ness Tribe is one of the best things that ever happened to me. I've met so many likeminded individuals in regards to traveling and I've learned so much through everyone else's experiences, that it makes me want to see the places they've seen and create my own memories in return. I love this group for that and will forever be grateful." - Brooklyn, New York Tribe Member Jeanise Chaplin
"The Nomad·ness Tribe has opened a new world to me. Being an American who grew up and lives overseas, I always felt like the odd one out among most people. Becoming a part of the Tribe is like coming home to family; there are so many that share the same experiences that I have had, which allows me to connect with strangers on a deeper level than a lot of people I know. The members are all from different walks of life, but come together with one universally common goal- travel!" - Tribe member Jessiqua Gibbons, living in Germany
"I have always been a bit of a loner because I thought there were no other people who shared my same passion to trod the Planet. Or at least people who looked like me. Since I joined the Tribe, just as I was about to kill my Facebook account, I found another long lost family. Made a real connection with people on our meet up to Panama." - Tribe Member Damon Jones
" Travel is necessary for my being. The Tribe is a community that understands and embraces that sentiment." - DMV area Tribe Member, Michaela Hall
