One could say my calling to help others create travel memories started in the 1970s when my father adopted me in Vientiane, Laos. He was teaching at an American school servicing US State Department and defense contractors’ families. At a year old I made my first trip, making our way from Laos to Bozeman, Mt. Before going to Laos, my father had traveled to Europe, the South Pacific, and Mexico as well as many destinations in the United States. Travel was in his DNA, and he passed that along to me.
Growing up we traveled often to both near and far places. By the time I was 10 I had been to Hawaii, New York, Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco, Canada, Spain, and Ireland. We also traveled throughout our home state of Montana. Like many families, our travel lessened when I was in high school because of my involvement in activities, but we still traveled when possible. The experiences I gained through travel as a youth have stayed with me throughout my life. Travel gave me a love of history which shaped my desire to be a history teacher. Travel gave me an appreciation for natural beauty. And most importantly, it provided me the ability to enjoy the moment. There are times during travel, or even day-to-day life, when you know you will never be at that place again and you just take in the atmosphere and enjoy.
As a young boy I was enthralled by the ancient Roman sites we visited in Spain. I was awed visiting the resting place of Christopher Columbus and the opulence of Europe’s grand cathedrals. My first visit to Dublin happened at Christmas time and I vividly remember practically drooling over the toy displays in the stores. I sat on the edge of my seat watching Sandy Duncan in Peter Pan and Allison Smith in Annie on Broadway. Because of travel I was able to experience so much and have an appreciation of other cultures.
I want to make sure that all my family travel clients have experiences that will inspire their children to provide their children with travel memories. I want the children of my clients to have first-hand experiences visiting places and being emerged in the culture of another country. I want my clients to tell me of the joy and happiness they gained watching their children have that experience.
To this end, I will strive to educate my clients beyond the obvious highlights of their destination. What other experiences could be added to enhance their trip, such as private tours or excursions that will add value to their trip. There are always things that will work within a family’s budget that will add value to the overall experience. Where can good food be had and other destinations that might be off the beaten path that will make the experience more memorable?
