Welcome future traveler...

NOW LET'S GET TO WORK!

I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am that you’re here!
If you’re reading this, you’re ready.
Ready for what?
Well, people like you don’t land on this page unless they’re motivated and driven to improve the way they travel!

When I first began traveling it was a classic example of what NOT to do. Forty-four countries later and I knew I wanted to do something that would help others, I wanted to help travelers avoid the mistakes I made and share the lessons that will make them a textbook example of what TO DO. You are about to embark on that journey with me.

But before we get ahead of ourselves…

First thing’s first…

A quick welcome and introduction to the course:

There is safety in numbers…

Which is why we created the Travel Safer FB Community

Pose your travel questions to our panel of travel experts and share your overseas experience with the rest of the group.

We’ll introduce the group moderators during the course – for now, here’s a quick run down of who’s fielding your questions:

Join The Community

I want to hear from YOU!

Use the scheduling tool below to select a day and time that works to get together on a Skype chat or phone call.

If you have a specific region or topic you want to discuss, shoot me an email beforehand (or include it in the r.s.v.p.) so I can show up ready and with answer in hand.

*If you’re in Denver, then hey! Let’s get a cup of coffee and talk travel!



As promised…

Family travel has its challenges, yes – but the rewards are often found a decade later at the kitchen table when you hear things like, “Hey mom, you remember that time we went to Morocco? That changed my whole perspective.” And you thought they didn’t even remember that trip.

Keeping track of yourself and the safety of little ones in tow means packing lists and checklists are the perfect way to know you thought of everything. It also means talking about the ‘what ifs?’ and doing some pre-travel dry runs.
