Letter from the Founder
WELCOME TO THE ADVENTURE EXPERT!
My name is Kristin, and I LOVE to travel. I want to introduce you to my company, a boutique luxury travel agency committed to creating unforgettable adventures around the globe and helping others develop or stoke their own love of travel. The Adventure Expert’s goal is to re-imagine the way travelers feel and experience luxury travel, providing unique itineraries for those who seek adventure in any form.
Having the opportunity to travel and experience different cultures is something I am constantly thankful for. My love affair with travel started at a very young age. My family always prioritized it above other activities, and our family trips always took us to new and exciting places. When I was in elementary school, my parents took us out of school and out of the country for a few months to explore Europe together. That trip ignited something inside me, and I haven’t been able to extinguish my desire to travel since.
Since I graduated college, my life has revolved around my next opportunity to travel. I worked for a few years until I had saved up enough money to leave my job, and take a year traveling and working in Europe and South America. Upon return from that trip, I knew that I had to figure out a way to incorporate travel into my career plans.
For me, that has taken two very different yet symbiotic directions. I wear the hat of both a human rights specialist, supporting the advancement of rights around the globe, and also that of a luxury travel advisor: planning incredible adventures for people like you. You can feel confident knowing that I have used my resources and relationships to ensure that you are working with responsible companies that value those that they employ, work with, and live in the communities where they offer services.
I am very fortunate to partner with some of the top names in luxury travel, including McCabe World Travel, a fabulous agency that provides support and connections around the world, and Virtuoso®, an invitation-only global network comprised of 1,700 of the world’s best travel providers and premier destinations that provides training, valuable partners, and incredible amenities and perks. Both provide immense value by offering the highest level of intel, travel inspiration, insider benefits, and value for your investment.
I formed The Adventure Expert to help others experience the kind of travel that I seek out for myself – unique, off-the-beaten path adventures, that provide good value for money. Just like you, I appreciate luxury and relaxation, but I also work to ensure that I, and you, are getting the best value for our money.
I love hearing from my clients during their travels and once they return from, their trips. The highest praise I can get is hearing that their trip is what they would have planned for themselves if only they knew that it was possible! I love surpassing expectations and crafting unique trips just for my clients. I enjoy chatting with potential travelers and learning about their hobbies, interests, and preferences, and creating a trip that is beyond what they could have imagined.
I view every trip as the start of a new adventure, and I am hope to work with you to see where your next adventure will take you! My adventures have taken me to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, through the depths of the ocean in the Galapagos, across the rainforest in the Brazilian and Peruvian Amazon, to tiny food stands in Malaysia, and to a myriad of other exciting, astounding, and breathtaking places.
I invite you to explore my website and begin imagining where your next adventure will take you. I would love the opportunity to help you make that trip a reality, and even better than you can imagine.
