What would it be like to step out of life and travel the world for FIVE YEARS?! That is what Trish did at the age of 20. Her mom had passed away while Trish was young, and had regretted that she had not been able to go see the world, and so she encouraged her daughter to NOT do the same. Trish quickly fell in love with meeting people and getting to know different cultures. After doing an internship with a travel company, she decided to launch her own company 20 years ago. Trish leads a staff of four, and organizes trips all over the world, but specializes in small group multi activity holidays in South and Central America, Canada, Europe, Oceania, Asia and Africa. The trips place a strong emphasis on culture.
Trish and her team organize the logistics, and form relationships with local tour operators that fit with her philosophy of responsible travel, environmental sustainability, and safety. Individuals, couples, and groups can choose from a variety of ability levels and activities. Everything from biking, hiking, climbing, spelunking, and more. Most trips are about a week long, but most can adjusted to fit the needs of the travelers.
Keeping expenses low has been very important to Trish and is one of her keys to success. Doing more with less always gets a big thumbs up from Nick and Johnny. Trish admitted that her favorite part of owning the business though is going on trips, and more specifically, going on scouting trips to find resources and locations.
