Please join the Frankford-Northeast Philadelphia Rotary Club at our April 16th regular meeting, where we will welcome Andre Lekich from Ecco Adventures.
Traveling the world has never been more affordable and interesting than it is right now. You can stay at people’s homes instead of hotels and there are all flavors of tours. Andre Lekich, one of the foremost authorities creating localized unique travel experiences, founded Ecco Adventures. Ecco in Italian means “There it is.”
Andre, who started his company because he wanted people to experience the wonder of discovering, being amazed and having fun, tells how to find those hiking trails and discover unique regional foods, beverage makers and stories that only locals whose families have lived there for generations can share with you.
Andre has a five-step process for making any trip the envy of your friends and family. One where the pictures/videos won’t be left on the phone/digital camera and forgotten forever, but instead shared with family and friends.
