Dana (Peterson) Blankenship
Ham Lake, Minnesota Travel Agent
I think a great travel agent needs to be a great listener, and I really listen to my clients. I listen to where they want to go, what they want from their vacations, and what their budget is. Then, I arrange exactly what they want. When working with travel providers, I don’t take “no” for an answer: there’s really no travel challenge that I can’t take on!
Of course, I also make suggestions when a client isn’t sure where they want to go. I’m especially knowledgeable about the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, and Hawaii. I’ve planned lots of girls’ getaways and other group travel, and have booked destination weddings all across Mexico and the Caribbean.
My family didn’t travel much when I was growing up, but I couldn’t wait to travel the world. At my high school’s graduation party, there was a travel agent who was giving away a trip; that was a job that I wanted to do. That was 27 years ago, and I’ve been a travel agent ever since.
I went to Belize for the first time last year and stayed at an eco lodge, with monkeys and toucans right outside the door. I rode a zip line over the jungle, snorkeled among sharks and took a kayak down a river populated by alligators. It was an amazing experience! With my new knowledge of Belize, I’ve been able to book similar trips for several clients.
I like to tell everyone to travel while they are young, and to not worry too much about the money; memorable travel experiences are far more valuable than money will ever be. That said, I’m ready to work with you to arrange a fabulous travel experience within the budget you set!
Thank You ! I look forward to working with you - Dana 763-413-3575
Just wanted to send you a quick note to say thanks for the advice and setting up the trip for us.
Everything was terrific, they put us up in one of the rooms at the top of the resort, which had a breathtaking view, filled the room with balloons both for Cathy’s birthday and again for valentine’s day. Service was incredible and food was good as well.
Again Thanks for the great advice and job you did for us.
Plan on a call from us to book another vacation next year!!!!
