My father frequently stated, “It’s a big world out there, go explore.” That motto has engendered all of my travels from a young age to now. Trips and vacations are adventures, whether it is a road trip along the Gulf Coast Highway or hiking in Olympic National Park or a safari in South Africa. Near or far, there are always surprises and wonderful finds along the journey from fantastic food, culture, and people. Often it is a special time to connect with family and friends. Memories are made and relived often.

Some of my favorite trips have been our honeymoon on Kauai and Maui, our second one in Bali, island hopping in Greece and exploring Brussels. The most adventurous one has been tracking leopards, cheetahs, and wild dogs as we followed their hunt in South Africa. The most rewarding culinary experience was sampling street food in Thailand. The most heart-warming was whale-watching and seeing the awe in my children’s faces as they saw a pod of orcas breaching the waters of Washington state.

Being part of the team at Unique Romance Travel has taught me that clients become our friends and because they are, we plan a vacation better than they could have imagined. And we encourage everyone to “go explore… it’s a big world out there.”
