A message from our founder, Ashley.
I am thrilled beyond words to welcome so many new travelers to our teletour community! I wanted to take a brief moment to reintroduce myself and share my story. My name is Ashley Martinez, Co-Founder and CEO of teletour. I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA, USA, which is a city full of rich historical and cultural heritage. My roots have influenced me deeply and I am proud to call NOLA home. I truly believe everyone should be proud of where they come from.
This idea is foundational to teletour and I have seen firsthand the beauty in the world’s diversity from my travels domestically and abroad. After college, I was fortunate to live and work in Ecuador as an Engineer.
My experiences in South America were incredibly humbling and insightful, and I was driven by a deep passion to share the world with others.I left bitten by the travel bug and with a deep passion to share my experiences with others. When I returned to the states, I found it hard to comprehensively explain what I had seen and my lessons learned. I knew then that it was my personal mission to create a platform that could accurately portray these indescribable moments.
Not everyone has the financial means or physical resources to travel; so I wanted to find an inclusive way for everyone to have this opportunity to see the world. In 2020, teletour was born. First and foremost, we are an educational community for travelers to learn about different cultures and destinations for virtual or in-person travels. We pride ourselves on our genuine content and mission to do good.
Many of you are asking how you can help teletour’s mission and it is simple – share your story! Anyone can post on teletour.
We would love to see your local experiences and travels through your eyes. Post that panoramic video you took or the recording you have of the cool street performer you saw. Share your favorite restaurant or hidden gem in your hometown. The goal is to curate a community to show all the amazing places that are out there in this beautiful world.
Planet. Live it. Share it.
