Hi there...I'm Christie.
I know it is difficult to make time for a vacation these days. We're all so busy. And with the complexities of travel options and information overload, it can be so overwhelming to try to plan an amazing trip.
That's where my team and I come in. We are big nerds who love this stuff. Details, research, spreadsheets, planning, phone calls, and negotiating...we live for it. We love to listen to your needs (and wants!) and develop a plan for you, taking care of every little detail.
My own passion for travel began as a kid.My family moved around a lot, and I had to adapt to new places quickly. As I got older, I learned more about different cultures. I enjoy being a student of culture and growing my cultural intelligence (CQ). I especially like going to places very different from my home, meeting the people, trying the food.
My type of dream adventure might not be everyone's. But when I plan for you, I plan with you in mind. What types of things do you love to do? What limitations do you have? What have been your favorite vacation experiences? What has gone wrong that we want steer clear of? I find joy in the creation of a journey that exceeds your expectations and becomes the new "best trip" you've ever taken...every time!
Let's plan something amazing and unforgettable together! And then, you will get to kick back and relax, knowing that you are in good hands.
With lots of love,
We know that one person's dream trip is going to be different from another's. That's why we value getting to know you on a personal level so that we can better understand your needs and desires for your journey. When you allow GlobeSage to plan alongside you, a cookie-cutter experience is definitely not what you will get. You will get a custom trip designed just for you.

When you work with us, we bring our histories and travel experiences to the table so you can benefit from our learning (and even our past mistakes!).

My Areas of Expertise
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved to travel. I’m not sure that I could pinpoint exactly when the travel bug bit me, but I know I was very young and moldable. Perhaps it is my curious spirit. I long to understand others and myself. I have... Read more from my Why I Love to Travel story.

Our best family vacation ever
Thank you, Jim! It was such a pleasure to serve. And I cannot tell you how happy I am that it was such an amazing vacation for you all.
We had a detailed itinerary with accommodations and activities suitable for my young daughters (one of whom is autistic) . Christie and Dacoda were mindful of what activities would be autism friendly and made sure the tours/activities would work for your family. In the end they provided a beautiful app with an itinerary and additional logistical details.
We will still make it to Argentina and other destinations and look forward to using Globe Sage Travel.
These ladies are truly a dynamic duo - you can just sit back and enjoy dreaming about your trip!
Monga, we are so grateful for your kind words, and we look forward to serving your family's travel needs in the future. We can't wait to get you all to Argentina!!! :-)
