What I Do

Hi there..I’m Judy  and I am ADDICTED to travel & adventure. There I said it…  After my kids flew the coop, I decided to follow my dreams (corny..I know) and find a way to travel the World. I spent a few years learning skills valuable for foreign & domestic adventure travel and voilà..I am now leading small groups all over the World & experiencing some really rad stuff!!

Hoping to Help

My blog has turned into travel tips, how-to and thoughts on feeling empowered during midlife. Travel does not have to be intimidating, or expensive. Read here about how I’ve figured it out.  It’s not too late to start something new & exciting! ​

Hoping you join me on this virtual road trip…..or maybe even a real life upcoming road trip adventure!

Thanks for stopping in! Judy

​​Curated Social Media Influencer Travel Campaigns

I plan and manage travel campaigns for micro-influencers with 25,000 to 100,000 followers. These women love to live a fashionable vibrant life including fitness, travel, gardening, home decor and style. They travel with me on
specially curated trips to fabulous destinations. In turn these influencers promote your companies products and services to their “ready to buy” audience via, story telling, photos and video.
