Koala-ty Time With This Cutie!

My extensive travels around the globe and unique experiences in some amazing destinations allows me to coordinate meaningful travel for you.

From families, to groups, to couples, and solo travelers, I truly believe that travel is all about making memories and fueling the soul. The question is not "where do you want to go", but "what memories do you want to create"?
When my mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2006, we made a family decision to enjoy one last international trip together to Ireland. That amazing trip to Ireland will forever remain in my memory. My mother's request before she passed was that I keep on traveling before time passes too quickly. And I've honored her wish for the past several years traveling the globe. From start to finish, I believe that my personal experiences in several destinations adds great value in my ability to help plan the perfect customized luxury getaway for you.

MY TRAVEL EXPERIENCES
I was bitten by the travel bug in college when an opportunity to study abroad in Europe came about. Throughout college, I planned service trips around the globe.
I lived abroad in Australia during my junior year of college, so I can speak firsthand to the Australian way of life. Not long after graduating,, I began a deeper dive into travel as a corporate event planner, organizing and planning trips for corporate clients.
Today, I'm continually expanding my education around travel in order to share my travel tips with you. I can speak first hand to destinations and use my expertise to cover details you may not even think of. My connections and partnerships with the industry's best suppliers around the globe mean a better experience for you.

Bucket List Trip To Peru-EPIC Trip To Remember!
Amanda stayed in touch with us from start to finish. She thought of everything, including a surprise gift for us upon our arrival in Cusco-after a long day of flying. Our trip was customized to everything we had envisioned. She planned excursions for us based on our interests and we loved all of them. From our mountain climbing zip line adventure to our trek up Huayna Picchu-it was priceless.
Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer! I highly recommend reaching out to Amanda. We are currently working with Amanda on our upcoming trip to Ireland!
You guys were so fun to work with! And to see your bucket list adventures come to life was nothing short of amazing. I loved hearing about your hike in Macchu Picchu and all the great foods you enjoyed along the way too. Can't wait for your European adventure next!
