About us

Boutique group adventures for solo travelers in their 30s and 40s

OUR STORY

Flash Pack is the brainchild of Radha Vyas and Lee Thompson. Together, they wanted to change the face of the industry, shaking off tired old clichés associated with group travel.

Their vision was to create adventures for like-minded solo travelers in their 30s and 40s that really get under the skin of a place via local and unique experiences. Think the thrill of backpacking, elevated by boutique hotels and seamless itineraries.

MEET THE FOUNDERS

“I was in my thirties, stressed at work and wanted to get away and have some fun and adventure. All my friends were busy getting married, having kids or tied up with their own respective careers. When I researched the market, I realized it was predominantly catering to young budget backpackers or the luxury, retired market. I was somewhere in between. I wanted a dynamic adventure with people my own age and a boutique hotel. So I set up my own travel company!”

“If you told me I’d be running a group travel company six years ago, I’d have laughed you out the door. Hand-holding isn’t my thing. In fact, my 14-year career as a photojournalist means I am fiercely independent. Working for national and international titles, my job led me all over the world, from the chaos of the Libyan Civil War to the fallout of the Japanese tsunami. My assignments were difficult and often dangerous, but never, ever dull. And they opened up a side to countries that tourists just don’t get to see. It’s this off-radar magic that convinced me I could change the face of group travel”
