A Happy Place Travel

Planning your trip should be FUN, not stressful.

Your Colorado based, IATAN Accredited travel agent & consultant for your vacation to Europe, Canada, the US, the Islands, Small Group Trips, Family Trips and Golf Trips.

Are you overwhelmed with all of the information when you try to research your destination? Are you running the hamster ball trying to handle work and life and planning your trip at the same time? Do you want help finding the right trip for you?

We can help make the best use of your precious vacation time and help you plan the vacation of your dreams. We can help you figure out what is important to you. It's so confusing when people (or websites) are saying, "Oh you have to see this!" and "That is not important!" because what others enjoy is not the same as what you enjoy. We'll help you create a trip designed specifically for you so that you'll have the most wonderful memories of when you get home.

Five reasons why you should contact me for help with your trip:
  • I've been in the travel business for 10 years and have a strong testimonials from former clients who have been very thankful for my help. For example, "I can't believe all that you are doing. You amaze me! Thank you for all your great information and constant watching out for us."
  • I will keep your trip organized by managing tasks and payments and helping you with flights so you don't get to your destination after your ship has left the shore. (I am a former software developer, so I have experience keeping my focus in the midst of chaos as well as organizing and prioritizing tasks.)
  • If you have any issues while planning your trip or while on your trip, I'll get them straightened out. (I'm the oldest of 5. When something needs to get done, I know how to get it done.)
  • You will not be my only client, but you'll feel like you are! (I'm a mom. I'm used to being pulled in different directions at one time.)
  • I enjoy helping people. It seriously pains me to see people making mistakes while planning to travel or while traveling.
