Adventure and Special Needs Travel Specialist

Sun in your face, the breezes at your back, Ahhh!
Sun in your face, the breezes at your back, Ahhh!

My passion? Creating joy in other people's lives, especially those with special needs. That is one of the reasons why I decided to become a travel agent. I wanted everyone to realize that there should be no boundaries or limitations when it comes to travel.

When you book a trip with me, you can be assured that I will listen carefully to your ideas, your vision and your dreams, and then use the information I learn from our conversations to create a seamless and customized itinerary that will be designed specifically for you.

I especially love helping my clients book:

  • Adventure travel. Do you have a passion for adrenaline sports or special experiences, such as camping on a glacier? Then let me work my magic and help you find those unique excursions.
  • Immersive travel. If you prefer experiencing a country like a local rather than like a tourist, let me create an itinerary that will take you off the beaten path.
  • Interest-based travel. I love booking trips based around my client's interests, such as cooking, music festivals or their faith.
  • Custom-designed itineraries. Let me craft a memorable Europe, Canada or Caribbean getaway just for you.

I also specialize in booking travel for those with medical, health or mobility challenges. My background includes 30 years in the field of social work, advocating for and working with people with autism, neuromuscular diseases related to HIV, Down syndrome and profound hearing and vision loss. I also provided care for three medically fragile, profoundly delayed children, so I have a very intimate understanding of the challenges that families with special needs face while traveling.

Additionally, I am an experienced traveler who can share with you my boots-on-the-ground experiences in numerous destinations, including but not limited to:

  • The Netherlands
  • Switzerland
  • Germany
  • Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo)
  • Kenya
  • Senegal

I am also a big amusement park fan. I have visited Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland, and Universal Studios and have set a personal goal to ride a roller coaster in every state.

So, are you ready to book your next adventure? Then please contact me. I promise that in addition to creating a personalized and unique itinerary for you, I'll also go the extra step to find those special excursions and additions that will put the cherry on top of your travels. And I will also advocate and work tirelessly on your behalf should any travel gremlins rear their ugly heads during your travel.

Alaska with Lots of Pluses

Reviewed By C & B - Nashville, TN | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
She is a friend of our fellow cruiser, Anne, but we were happy she took us on, too. She definitely helped us have a better trip to Alaska. We are SO glad we took her advice about staying in Denali 3 nights, and in fact, that we spent extra to take the land portion. She found us several perks on the cruise ship. All in all a great experience.

Amazing Anniversary Getaway!

Reviewed By Michelle - Asheville, NC | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Laura helped us arrange a trip to a glorious resort, Nizuc, just outside of Cancun, Mexico. In addition to taking care of all of the logistics, Laura is a deeply thoughtful and creative travel agent, very conscious of communicating every detail, providing every bit of information possible to make the trip goes smoothly. She went so far as to check-in at several points during our trip to make sure that everything was going well, and to remind us of any needed travel details. The entire trip was flawless. Laura's service is top-notch.

Incredible Family Trip!

Reviewed By Shelly - Carlisle, PA | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Laura was the first travel agent we’ve ever used and would love to use her again! Laura listened to our sometimes unique requests with open ears and accommodated our wishes. Our 20 day trip made for a lot of bookings for air travel, hotels/B&Bs, and a few great tours! She was like a lifeline through the whole planning process and also throughout the whole trip. We two adults and two teens recommend Laura! Awesome!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Laura Lanier responded:
Thank you for your kind words. I love to help and support people in creating the travel experience that is just right for them. You and your family were wonderful to work with and although you gave me some challenging request I love knowing that the trip was the adventure you had dreamed of. So my only question is. ..Where to next ?
