We are your Vacation Visionaries. Bethany and Amanda have been friends for over 20 years and share a passion for travel. As we head into the empty-nest stage of life, it seemed like the perfect time to turn that passion into a business. We offer years of travel experience and look forward to making you part of our travel family.
Bethany and her husband (in photo), Bart, have 19 year-old quadruplets that recently graduated high school and headed off to college. She has planned and led group cruises, multiple family vacations to Disney and Universal for friends and family, a school field trip for over 70 students/chaperones, and taken her family on a customized dream vacation to Europe. She relaxes by reading travel articles and blogs, not to mention planning dream adventures all over the globe. Her experience travelling with a large family of kids at different ages will benefit you greatly when planning trips for your own family or group.
Amanda and her husband, Digger, have two sons. One is a junior at The Ohio State University and one is in his senior year of high school. Her family loves to cruise, take road trips, and search out new adventures. Amanda has been leading large student groups to Washington D.C. for over a decade. She lead group mission trips to Jamaica for about 15 years. Recently, she organized and led a group trip to England and Scotland. Her time leading so many diverse groups has given her experience in dealing with all kinds of obstacles and challenges. You will benefit greatly from her experience as you navigate the ins and outs of travel.
While we have plenty of personal travel experience to draw on, our true specialty is in the details. We love to research new locations to find the best eateries, self-guided walking tours, shopping, hidden coves, and photo ops. We want to help you have a wonderfully memorable adventure wherever your wanderlust leads you.
We believe that travel has the potential to change your soul. Mark Twain once said, "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." Travel done well can open your mind and heart to people of different cultures and world views. Travel can be transforming as well as restorative. Our goal is to make your trip truly life-enhancing.
