Joy Morgan Hess
Owner/Lead Travel Consultant

 

Thanks for visiting us! I believe that travel helps each of us understand our world better. Seeing things outside one's own routine is a transformative experience; one that builds kindness and understanding. It also introduces us to cultures and people, which makes our world a smaller place, and makes the lives of so many in our world better! Our team agrees with this philosophy and is fantastic to work with. Take a look at their bios below and see who would be a good fit to help you plan your travel!

 

I'm passionate about taking time to travel regularly  - even a short road trip to a neighboring town or state. It's a priority for me to visit a new place each year, preferably somewhere out of my comfort zone, and I also make time to revisit favorite family travel traditions (Disney Parks & vacations with friends).  

 

Some personal info about me:

  • Favorite Destinations: Mexico, Scotland, Austria, Bermuda, Alaska, Arizona, Maine, Costa Rica

  • Life List (prefer this to 'Bucket List'): Switzerland, Japan, Egypt, Scandinavia, Africa, the Baltic region

  • Upcoming personal trips: Jamaica,, Orlando, Hawaii

  • Travel style: Intrepid & exploring like a local. Mix of exploring & relaxing!

 

My consulting specialties are planning custom vacations, to both domestic and international locations. I especially love planning multi-generational trips, groups, adults-only getaways, and solo trips (everyone should travel alone at least once in their lives)! Though I am an international travel specialist, our country is HUGE and I enjoy helping families with domestic US vacations as well.

 

Helping others experience the world outside the lines is a joy and is the main reason why I chose to work in the travel industry.
