Join me in a mystery destination, June 2023 (SOLD OUT, WAITLIST OPEN)

Welcome to the first step of one of the best experiences of your life! Unless you’ve been on a previous group trip with me, then this will be the most recent “best experience” of your life! πŸ˜‰

One thing I am known for with my thoughtfully curated group trips is creating opportunities for people to experience things that they didn’t even know existed and taking them outside of their comfort zone to create truly memorable, lifelong memories. I don’t take people on trips, I take them on meaningful journeys to EXPERIENCE LIFE! We do things that are on my own bucket list, so you KNOW it’s going to be good! No two trips are alike, each one is unique and creatively, handcrafted by me, to be an original experience. In fact, I have never taken groups to the same place twice (with the exception of Yosemite), so if I am going back to the same country for another round, you KNOW that place must be VERY special and have A LOT to offer.

That is exactly what I have lined up for this “secret spot”, an opportunity to experience MORE, to experience the fullness of what life and nature have to offer in this slice of paradise. I visited this place briefly during a previous group trip and FELL IN LOVE, I was left aching for more! I realized while I was there my first time around, talking to the marine biologist onboard our yacht, that I had only just scraped the surface of what this amazing corner of our beautiful planet has to offer. A place that the famous Jacque Cousteau has named “the aquarium of the world”, rightfully so.

In addition to creating life enhancing experiences that are intentionally balanced with equal parts exhilarating, bucket-list adventures and much needed times of restorative relaxation & rejuvenation, I also strive to protect our planet and all who inhabit it, in all I plan; by seeking out the most sustainable and eco friendly properties, tour companies & guides.

Believe me when I tell you that this is going to be an incredible adventure that you DO NOT want to miss.
