Bonjour, Olá, Hola, Hello ❤️

We're Lindsey and Nic, co-founders of Yayem. We believe in the power of cross-cultural connection, and that when done responsibly, travel changes the world for the better. We fancy ourselves the "anti" travel-influencers; living globally is in our DNA, not just our instagram feeds. After 15+ years living around the world, we built Yayem to provide us with what we craved most: local connections, truly authentic experiences, and global perks and resources designed for you to thrive – no matter where you land.

    Connecting with fellow Americans in Lisbon, getting referrals for startup founders, or grabbing a deluxe breakfast in Cape Town, Yayem has been an invaluable network. Through YTies, I have been matched with incredible women!
