Cassandra Bookholder, Camelback Odyssey Travel, A Virtuoso Travel Office – “Recently I was in the rugged coastal town of Broome, located in northwestern Australia. The contrast of the bright red dirt and amazing turquoise blue ocean offers amazing views and gorgeous sunsets. While here, I mixed camel beach rides with trying on $250,000 pearl necklaces – it was definitely an amazing place to experience with a lot of local character.”

Lisa Zwissler, Beach Bum Vacations – “I had a great time traveling to Beaches Negril earlier this year with friends but am especially excited to visit Sandals Royal Bahamian and Sandals Emerald Bay with my coworkers, the other beach bums, and my family vacation with my husband and 2 children at Beaches Turks this October.”

Leyna Huber, Camelback Odyssey Travel, A Virtuoso Travel Office – “I had the opportunity to visit India in May.  It was a whirlwind trip, consisting of 5 cities in 10 days – Mumbai, Jaipur, Ranthambore, Agra & Delhi.  To see the Taj Mahal at sunrise was magical.  Participating in a game drive in Ranthambore, seeing a tiger, and then visiting the co-op’s to support the local women helped provide a very moving trip.”

Michael Distler, AuthentEscapes – “I recently escorted a group of 14 friends and my significant other through South Africa, Zambia and Botswana. With guiding responsibilities at a minimum it was great to simply enjoy and share what I do for a living with a great group of close friends. The trip was action packed from start to finish and life changing for so many.”

Heather Christopher, Classic Travel at Tackett’s Mill – “Hands down, Turkey! We take an office trip annually and last November we spent a week exploring Cappadocia, Kusadasi and Istanbul; I would go back in a heartbeat!”
