My family on one of Costa Rica's hanging bridges
My family on one of Costa Rica's hanging bridges

I left my first career as a mechanical engineer in order to raise my three children. During those years, I was a freelance travel writer and guidebook author. My husband and I took our kids to all 50 states and over a dozen countries while they were growing up.

After our nest emptied, I decided to use my experience to help other families and couples as a travel advisor. I am passionate about helping others strengthen their relationships through traveling, and I consider travel to be an essential part of a child’s education. 

I love helping people explore the world, experience adventure, and learn about other cultures.

The name Big Rock Travel was inspired by the classic time management parable about fitting rocks, gravel, and sand into a jar. When you try to put the sand and gravel in first, you can’t fit in all of the big rocks. The lesson learned is that you have to put the big rocks in first, and then the gravel and sand fill in around the big rocks. I apply that philosophy to travel planning. Travel requires time and money, which are limited resources.

I like to work with people who value what travel brings to their lives and consider travel to be one of their big rocks. I’ll work with you to help you achieve your travel goals.

Wonderful Trip to Europe

Reviewed By Clyde - Los Angeles, CA | Traveled to Europe
My wife and I could not be more pleased with the great job Terri did on our recent European trip. With great care and attention to detail, she helped us plan our 3 week trip to Germany, Spain, France, Montenegro, Malta, Greece and Italy. She listened carefully to our ideas and concerns and offered a variety of good options for hotels, transfers, excursions and travel insurance. In the process, she saved us money. As luck would have it, our plans changed shortly before our trip, so Terri had to scramble to change our flights. She again researched all the options and help us pick the best one. Professional, knowledgeable and caring, Terri could not have done a better job. We highly recommend her.

Wonderful Experience Planning With Terri

Reviewed By SusanA - Loveland, OH | Traveled to Niagara Falls ~ Ontario ~ Canada
Working with Terri to plan our family's summer vacation was an awesome experience and I would highly recommend her to plan your ideal vacation. I wanted to make sure we saw all the best sites and fit everything into our schedule in our multi-city, state, and country vacation, and Terri planned it perfectly. Terri asked all the right questions to find out what we wanted to do and learn our family's comfort level in regards to how much we wanted to travel in one day, how busy we wanted to stay, and what accommodations work best for our family's needs and price range. Terri's knowledge of the different locations was invaluable to make sure we efficiently spent our time and money.

We had a great vacation, perfectly planned trip spending one or two nights each in Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Erie and Niagara Falls, Canada. The multiple options Terri gave us for hotels, and suggestions for places to eat, took a lot of guess work out of the planning and was appreciated.

One Last Trip to Hawaii

Reviewed By Mary - Loveland | Traveled to Oahu Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Terri was so easy to work with and was so patient with all of our changes and requests. This trip was originally planned for spring break 2021 but had to be cancelled due to medical reasons. Once we decided to try again our condo we wanted was gone for the summer, but Terri was able to get us the condo the week before school started which was so awesome! We stayed exactly where we wanted to be. We could walk to everything we wanted and was able to park our rental in the garage of the condo which was also awesome. It was an awesome trip for our family and amazing to go back to our honeymoon spot one more time.

Best European Family Trip

Reviewed By Kat - Shawnee, KS | Traveled to Europe
Terri listens closely to the customer to define the best travel/vacation plans. She makes sure you are satisfied and well planned out for your travel. She is flexible and can plan a large overseas trip for a family, or a romantic couples trip, or a fun local driving expedition.

When Can We Go Back to Occidental at Xcaret??

Reviewed By Tom - Roselle Park, NJ | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
This was our first time booking an all-inclusive trip in Mexico for us and our two daughters (9 & 7). Terri provided information on all the possible options and worked to get us as much as we could for our dollar. We chose Occidental at Xcaret and it was incredible! We all had such a good time. We felt like we were taken care of, and did not have to worry about the arrangements at all. Thanks, Terri!

Terri was absolutely awesome to work with and planned the perfect honeymoon for us.

Amazing Flexible Experience!

Reviewed By Julia B. - Brooklyn, NY | Traveled to Fort Lauderdale ~ Florida ~ USA
Terri is amazing! My family engaged her for our trip to Hawaii last year which unfortunately had to be rescheduled due to Covid related issues. When the trip got rescheduled I was no longer able to attend. Terri got me an amazing credit on my flight. She then worked with me over the course of a few months to book THREE different trips using that flight credit. Terri did this all at no extra charge because she is so committed and kind to her clients. Booking the new trips was so easy and she was quick to respond to all of my emails. In this situation many people could have said “you’re out of luck” but Terri went above and beyond to help me!

Terri Weeks responded:
It was my pleasure to help you use that credit. It was so unfortunate that you were unable to go to Hawaii. I'm glad I was able to help.

Amazing 50th Anniversary trip!!!

Reviewed By Andi - Loveland, OH | Traveled to Zion National Park ~ Utah ~ USA
It was a pleasure working with Terri. She helped us narrow our focus to be sure we saw what as most important to us on this trip. We made changes along the way and she was most accommodating in figuring out what we really needed. There was a hiccup at the beginning of our trip which could have ruined the whole first 2 days, but Terri found a good "work around" and we were able to salvage those days. Thanks so much Terri. We will be using you again!!!

Bourbon Trail Anniversary Trip

Reviewed By Rhonda - Cincinnati, Ohio | Traveled to Kentucky ~ USA
?From the beginning, Terri listened to what we wanted, took the time to get to know us, and set about scheduling as many adventures as she could in four days with a modest budget. She was challenged with my husband being a bourbon lover & me being a non-drinker, but she was able to customize a mix of experiences with our interest in history woven throughout. We were relieved to have her navigate all the tastings & tours & timing of each activity, & absolutely loved the app which captured all the logistics succinctly in an easy-to-reference format. Early on she even encountered a snag or two when booking, yet she persevered with creativity, kept us informed, & found other viable options. We are truly grateful for Terri's role in the memories we made on this trip!

Best family trip ever!

Reviewed By A Quinn - Wauwatosa, WI | Traveled to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone
We loved the whitewater rafting experience on the Snake River. Our daughter was hesitant at first, but when it was over, she asked to do it again. It ended up being her favorite activity. It was hard to leave Jackson Hole, but enjoyed Yellowstone for it’s own uniqueness. The landscape was fascinating, and Terri’s suggested route was perfect.

Big Rock Travel was great! Terri was so helpful with great advice and was very responsive to my questions. As a working mom, I especially appreciated that she made all our bookings for us so I didn't have to spend time researching and doing the bookings myself. I completed trusted her knowledge base and it all worked out great. Her itinerary app was amazing too - so helpful!
