Multigenerational Family Travel Expert
I help overworked, overscheduled, overwhelmed parents and families unplug from their day to day stresses so that they can reconnect as a family through travel adventures that build memories that go beyond the pages of any magazine or textbook.
It's time to create your adventure instead of watching life pass you by. Planning for travel can often feel daunting, but that’s why I’m here: to make organizing your trip simple, quick, and fully catered to your needs.
My name is Tracy, I'm the proud owner of Elite Travel Journeys, as a veteran, a business owner and mom of 6, I understand what it means to be stressed out and overwhelmed, but more important than everything else, I understand how fast kids grow up. It seems like one moment you are crying because they just won't sleep through the night, and in the next, they are applying for college. I want to help you push the pause button, step out of your crazy, busy life and take time to reconnect as a family. To find new interests, stories, and memories to share as you all move to a new phase of life. I work directly one to one with my clients to remove the stress and overwhelm that planning an epic adventure can create. No matter if you are looking for just a short weekend escape, or a year-long trip of a lifetime let me take something off your overflowing list of things to do.
My mission is to help families connect through adventure and one of a kind experiences around the world. My personal journeys have taken me to more than 25 countries, many with my own children. Such destinations of a lifetime include Kenya where my children and I were lucky enough to see the Big 5 while on safari. After spending a few days on safari, we visited a school where we spent the day teaching the children about crayons, chalk and magic markers and all they can create with them. We also read books to the children before leaving them with the over 100 books we brought with us to help them build a library. The day ended with a game of soccer and a group photo that keeps the memories alive.
Ireland and Switzerland were right up there too, but I would say after Kenya, my second favorite experiences came on a visit to Italy where we joined a local family at their farm for a Sunday homestyle dinner. We shared a meal, swapped stories and built memories to last. I'm never going to forget that trip.
I truly believe that and if done right, traveling can greatly enhance a person’s life. Allow me to create journeys for you and your family that you will treasure for a lifetime. Journeys that create opportunities to connect with people in their home country, so you can experience it in an authentic and more meaningful way. And journeys that will take you far enough out of your comfort zone, to leave you with a new perspective on life, family and the world as a whole. When you truly experience the world, not just visit it, you will be forever changed for the better.

Family on Safari
We all struggle with parental guilt. The reality is we live in a fast-paced world, with schedules filled to the max. We run from activity to activity, from one appointment to the next, all while trying to remember to get food into everyone. From one deadline at the office to trying to remember every birthday or celebration at home.
We all need to hit the pause button from time to time. We need to find a way to unplug from the intense paces of our day to day lives and plug back into the family. To reconnect with those that we love the most. Cue the family adventure!
I custom craft unique adventures for stressed-out families, couples and individuals who need to reconnect with what is most important to them.
