What is a ‘Travel Mixologist’?

December 4th, 2008 by Jordan

Urbane Nomads is a new site/operation as far as I can tell. They call themselves ‘travel mixologists.’ I suppose what this means after reading their ‘about us’ is that they create off the road itineraries for the well off.

I’m a little mixed on Urbane Nomads myself. I don’t really admire companies that market themselves as designer, mod and upscale. But I do admire any tour outfit that can take you on a 13 day tour in Afghanistan. I think this company would be great for MBA grads. They’ve got money, they’re young enough to have a sense of design, and some understand that you have to get off the beaten path to see another (the real) culture of the place. And also…MBA grads lack vision and creativity in my opinion. Either way, Urbane Nomads has a rather inconsistent site with multiple font sizes and weird navigation. The map is very cool, yet it doesn’t do much….like I said…I’m still feeling ‘mixed’.

Finally, something positive I’ve found that relates to Afghanistan.  These fluorite bracelets are made by women in Afghanistan, they help local economy, help fair labor practices, and “emphasizes humane animal practices”…you know all that eco goodness you wanted.  And their packaging is eco friendly as well.  I’m just excited to find something cool about Afghanistan instead of hearing about terrorism.  You can check them out at  For only $19.95, that seems pretty good.
