Alaska, Disney & Cruise Specialist

Talkeetna, Alaska my home away from home.
Talkeetna, Alaska my home away from home.

The Mama Bear for YOUR Travel Dreams:

I’m a wife, mother of 2, and care full time for my sister with Downs Syndrome and her service dog. Travel started for me because my family is spread to the 4 corners of the earth. I have a home in Alaska and have lived and spent much of my life there. Then the biggest activity love of my life – SCUBA diving – has sent me around the world to different dive destinations.

I’m passionate about my family, and I protect and provide for my children (and sister) with everything I have. I am *such* a mom. I’m the person that tells a friend there is lipstick on their teeth, I see my friends’ cars and tell them when their tires are low on air; and I’m always advising those around me on the weather (it’s a little addiction).

All the protection and caring are what I naturally apply to my client’s trips. “I’m the mama bear for your travel dreams.” I plan your trips with passion, protection, detail focused, non-pressured love.

I specialize in Alaska. I have a home in Talkeetna, and my grandparents owned a resort on Big Lake. My entire life since I was 2 years old, I’ve spent time with my family running around Alaska. I know the day to day insider secrets, I know tips and tricks, and I’ve experienced so much of the state personally (both in summer & winter).

When I turned 18 (oh so long ago) I took my first trip to Walt Disney World. Since travelling with my best friend as a hard-earned graduation present to ourselves we went back annually. Disney became a passion watching the magic happen! Each trip has over 80 hours in planning, and we study rides, lines and flow of parks; creating fully custom Walt Disney World itineraries that maximize our time!

Prior to travelling to Walt Disney World my family would go to Disney Land every year for Christmas for almost 10 years when I was growing up. My grandfather lived in Diamond Bar, CA and Disney was oh so close! It was our Christmas present every year visiting Disneyland!

When not on an intense schedule seeing and doing everything with Disney, cruising became a favorite way to unwind. I am a 2019 Cruise World STAR recipient! I love sailing in the Caribbean, Western Caribbean, Eastern Caribbean, Southern Caribbean and South Pacific. I’ve done luxury cruises where no expense was spared, and budget cruises where it was simply a warm weather last minute getaway.

The same best friend that started me with my Walt Disney World addiction, also lived in Hilo, Hawaii for 4 years. I was blessed to live with her for a while! I explored the “Big Island” visited friends on Maui and took in all the tourism I possibly could. Hawai’i is a passion of mine with the temperate weather, constantly changing topography, view of the stars and of course the scuba diving!

As a white-water raft guide, and a high level PADI SCUBA instructor adventure travel is a pet niche. From diving wrecks in Bali, to seeing coral in Fiji, and abundant fish in Roatan – adventure travel is what my husband and I have taken a part of for the last 5 years when we travel together.  

I worked for the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch (Beaver Creek / Vail, Colorado) for 5 years. I earned the WOW award, across the entire brand, 3 times because of my ability to create unique memories for people. Honeymoons are a passion for booking. Taking what the clients dreams are and making them come true more than imagined. All inclusive resorts, overwater bungalows, trekking through Costa Rica all personal experiences that I parlay into the once in a lifetime trip that honeymoons are.

SCUBA Diving, cruises, Disney, all inclusive resorts, honeymoons, romance, family travel, adventure travel – I’m a travel counselor because I’m addicted to travel and want others to have even better experiences than I have! I will protect, plan, care for and love booking your travel like the mama bear I am!

Vacation of a Lifetime!

Reviewed By Stecin - ISANTI | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Our experience with Saralynn can best be described as fabulous! When we sought travel to Alaska, she came prepared for our first meeting with an extensive power point presentation, extensive information on travel and cost, and a wealth of information on her home state of Alaska. A second meeting to review and book excursions was efficient with the result being a great vacation. Her personal recommendations regarding travel were heeded and we are so glad we did. The outcome was a vacation of a lifetime that we are happy to recommend to others who inquire about our experience (as we have already done twice).

Cruise Upgrade and Excursion Expert!

Reviewed By DYF - Cambridge, MN | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
We purchased a cruise while on a cruise, settled for an inside cabin since they wanted $800 for lowest quality balcony. After we got home, turned over the boiled cruise to Saralyn and she got us a better balcony (two quality levels better!) for only $200! Now we have money for an excursion!

Saralyn saves the annual cruise

Reviewed By J Stone - Harris, MN | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
My mother used to make all the travel arrangements. Sadly she passed earlier this My father who thought he could do it online to save some money quickly found out how hard my mom actually had worked at it year after year. It was a huge ask to have Saralyn arrange this for the 12 of us all coming from different states, wanting our own special accommodations. But she pulled it off under my dads budget and got us on the big ship we always wanted to try out. I recommend her 100%
