About Me:

I love developing customized itineraries for my clients to the far reaches of the world.  I believe travel is  a catalyst for growth.  The interaction and connection with different cultures, cuisines, places and people opens our minds and our hearts to our human similarities.  My life is enhanced through my travel experiences and the travel experiences of my clients.

Sustainable travel is a specialty of mine.  Before I started my travel business, I worked as a civil engineer specializing in water projects for 20 years.  I actively study sustainability and seek out sustainable and environmentally conscious travel experiences.  My intention is to deliver a high end travel experience with a low ecological footprint.

I use a collaborative travel planning process.  The travel planning process begins with me listening to my clients and understanding their travel objectives. As I learn and understand their travel style, preferences and passions, we will collaborate on their trip. Based on our collaboration, I will design their trip itinerary and handle all of the logistics. I have a vast network of travel industry relationships that I utilize while designing travel. I am available to my clients before, during and after their travels. After my clients have traveled, I will be in touch to hear how they enjoyed your trip and apply what I learn from your feedback to future trips.

 

Client Testimonials

Keely is amazing! Our trip to San Francisco for my family could not have been more special. There is no doubt in my mind that Keely is the reason for this. From start to finish she was knowledgeable, accessible, and professional. I cannot wait to take another vacation and have Keely plan it for me.
– Wayne Westerfield
We never want to travel without Keely’s help again!! We loved every detail and all of Keely’s recommendations!

About Me:

My fascination with travel began while growing up in Venezuela and Thailand. As a member of the Bangkok Aquatic swim team, I traveled throughout Europe and the Far East with my family, falling in love with cities such as Athens, Rome, and Vienna. After a career in customer relations and logistics, I launched my career as a travel advisor, and have found true passion in helping my clients immerse themselves in local culture. My goal is to make sure my clients’ trips are the right fit for them. I enjoy booking travel to New Zealand and Spain, and travel often to Prague, where my daughter is a teacher. I’ve cruised Sydney Harbour in Australia, explored both islands of New Zealand, toured Italy with my three daughters during the Xmas holidays, attended Easter Mass in the Cordoba Mosque-Cathedral in Spain, and driven the northern coast of Ireland from Galway to Dublin. I’ve been lucky to experience several trips of a lifetime, and my goal is to create similar experiences for my clients!

Client Testimonials:

“So Meg, we are your customers for life!  In one word – phenomenal.  Curious what exactly you told them about us…for us to get such  royal treatment! ” – Juliet

” Thank you so much for being part of my birthday celebration. The dessert was decadent, chocolate mousse, ridge of dark chocolate fudge, and Oreo crumbles. Delicious!  Meg, over the years you have helped to provide Dan and I with the most amazing adventures. I want to send you a huge…THANK YOU for enriching our lives.”  – Penny

” This trip was one of the single best things that any of us have ever done, and we largely have you to thank for it.  I really appreciate everything you did to help us make this happen.   Thanks so much for putting up with my questions and worries and credit card swaps.  I really appreciate your patience with my total lack of experience.  When we got there, we realized pretty quickly just how streamlined the whole experience is, and we really had nothing to worry about from the moment we walked off the airplane.  Thanks for hooking us up with such a wonderful experience.  I’ll be referring all of my friends your way!  Thanks again.  We’ll definitely call you when it’s time to go back!”   -Jeremiah

About Me:

About Me:

In the last 35 years I created and booked over half a million vacations; from custom-designing international adventures to expedition cruises, from escorted tours to honeymoons. No two trips are ever the same and the options are limitless – rent a villa in Tuscany, charter a yacht in Belize, or take the family on a canal barge in France. How about a hot air balloon ride in Myanmar or a trek in  Patagonia ? Maybe you are looking for the perfect beach getaway in the South Pacific ? I know I can make your dreams come true.

For the last ten years my special passion has been orchestrating safe adventure experiences around the globe for my clients. Whether you would like to walk with the penguins in Antarctica, photograph polar bears in the Arctic, or marvel at the underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef — if you can dream it, I can help you achieve it. Picture yourself in the presence of orangutans on Borneo, lions in Botswana, or tigers in India. You can rest assured that you will never forget these experiences. These are memories of a life-time for you and for any special person you may want to share them with.

Like you, I also love to travel. My personal travel destinations include all seven continents, and too many countries to list them all. Some of my favorite places are found in South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, South America, South Georgia, as well as Australia, New Zealand, China, Myanmar, and islands from the Caribbean to the South Pacific. My travels have taken me through most of the countries of Europe and Russia; countries amazingly rich in history & culture.

I would love to share my personal insights and travel expertise with you. Let my experience and knowledge of these places translate into your next exciting and successful voyage.

Client Testimonials:

Our family had the luxury of planning a perfect and memorable trip with Katja this past summer to South Africa and Botswana. It truly was a trip of a lifetime. Katja was an invaluable part of our vacation: she planned all of our complex flights with family members flying from different areas of the country and helped us to find the exact Safari Lodges to meet our interests and needs. Katja is one of those magical agents, she listens and understands your interests and your needs and does all she can to match you to an itinerary that works for you. In addition, she provided  us with the names of exceptional guides at each location and followed through with making sure our trip ran as smoothly as humanly possible. Her attention to detail is extraordinary, her dedication to her clients is only matched by her expertise in travel and her desire to take exceptional care of all who entrust their trip with her.  She handled and facilitated all areas of our trip from complex airline reservations, trip insurance, private charters, guides and each and every one of our accommodations. There is nothing Katja isn’t willing to do for her clients before, during or after the trip. I recommend her without reservation. She is a gifted travel agent and travel companion wherever you choose to travel in the world! – J. & H. from Los Angeles, June 2013

“I just wanted to thank you for helping us organize our trip to Hawaii. We had a fabulous time! Honestly, our best vacation yet. I think I filled you in on most of our activities. I don’t remember if I mentioned that we ended up going on a helicopter ride that landed at Jurassic Falls. It was magical. Graham and Brian played some golf and we spent the last day on the North side snorkeling at the St. Regis Hotel. Beautiful beach”  Shari

“Your name came up many times during our trip.  We can’t thank you enough.  Everything was PERFECT!  We loved the hotel/condos and the itinerary.  We were even on the north side of Kauai when the big waves came in–a highlight of our trip for sure.  We will definitely give your name to anyone who is looking for a travel agent.  Thank you for all your help.”  Karen
