After hiking around Lake Louise in Canada
After hiking around Lake Louise in Canada

I recently realized I am an adventure traveler, and you might be too. You just might not realize it. Do you like to get out into nature when you travel? Do you enjoy learning about other cultures? Do you enjoy maybe a good hike, or bicycle ride? That IS adventure travel, my happy globe trotter! It can be as simple as a walk, or as adventurous as scuba diving and zip lining. I have been sending happy travelers around the globe for more than 15 years. Personally my favorite types of trips are those that include an element of adventure. I've gone exploring in Costa Rica. I've been on Safari in Kenya and Tanzania. I've hiked Diamond Head on Oahu. On Maui I enjoyed snorkeling, zip lining, ATV riding as well as the legendary exhilarating bike ride down Haleakala at sunrise. I've hiked all over Alaska, including the spectacular Denali National Park. In Denali, you can drive 90 miles into the center of the park, all the while seeing snow-capped peaks, bears, moose, caribou, eagles, wolves and more. You can see hills 25 miles away that feel close enough to touch. When your guide just points out into the great beyond and you just start hiking "that way" it's a feeling of wonder you've never experienced. The ground is like walking on a lumpy uneven mattress and is permanently frozen under the thick, spongy moss. I've kayaked in Ketchikan and Seward and have had flapping salmon fly out of the water and plop on my kayak. Just this past May, I was accorded the opportunity to travel by train from Vancouver to Jasper then hike around Lake Louise. I hiked to the opposite side of the lake, and then tried to continue on the trail, but it went up high enough in elevation, so that the snow became too deep to traverse... it was unbelievable! Nothing excites me more than being able to add activities like these to any of my travels. I'd be thrilled to share them with you and send you on the adventures that I have experienced myself, that I love so much. Please, realize that you too do love adventure travel! (It's not all climbing Mt. Everest and heli-skiing!) Let me know where you'd like your next adventure to begin!

First Overseas Trip was fabulous because of Melis
From the initial planning stages to the final execution all interactions with Melissa were fabulous. This was my first ever overseas trip. To say I was a little nervous was an understatement and to make me even more nervous I was doing the trip by myself but Melissa made sure everything was taken care of down to the finest detail.

I thought it was going to be a problem when the tour company changed the dates of my tour because the one I originally signed up for did not have enough travelers. Melissa not only sent me the notification to let me know of the change but she also contacted the company who I bought Travel Insurance thru to inform them of the change.

The only thing I had to do was go on my trip and enjoy it. Melissa took care of everything else.

I think my next tour will be a domestic one but I will definitely be needing Melissa's help again.

First Family Trip To Europe!
Melissa was very helpful with planning our family vacation to Europe. We had never visited Europe before, so she was able to provide hotel and flight recommendations to ensure we had a great location and enough time for activities. Melissa was very attentive to our needs as a family and helped make sure we had a great flight (regarding time) and private transportation to and from the airport. I will definitely work with Melissa in the future!

Congenial Professional, Juggling Lots of Detail!!!
Melissa was very enjoyable to work with. She is knowledgeable and professional. She listened very carefully for our wants and needs, and made some fairly complex arrangements to suit us. She was available to meet at our convenience, and kept us totally informed of progress via email, even when she was not in the office. Our 3 week trip covered Edinburgh, Highlands of Scotland, Newcastle/Hartlepool/York/London/Cornwall, England.
