My Story

Where to begin?!  I grew up taking road trips with my family; studying the maps,

staring out the window at the power lines and clouds.  In middle school, I

researched Tahiti, requested information from the tourism board and received

a handwritten letter in return.  That’s why Tahiti is #1 on my Bucket List!  I also

saved for two years so I could take a trip to Europe after college graduation

and the rest is history - or future travel plans!

Professionally, I have been an event planner and a corporate incentive travel

planner for VIPs.  Now, you are my VIPs and I love to plan trips and will

probably want to join you - ha!  Let me take the hassle out of researching

and planning to help you design your adventure.

Finally, I would like to introduce Toby the Traveling Bunny.  He is my travel

companion who loves to explore.  Be sure to follow his travels on

Facebook, Instagram and this website!

Travel Experience

Favorite Destination

All of them!  Each destination has something that sticks in my mind.  I love the desert and ocean landscapes of Los Cabos, the cosmopolitan feel of Vancouver in the mountains, as well as the extraordinary sculptures by Michelangelo in Italy. I am in awe of the power of nature in the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Moab.  The world is amazing.

Countries Explored

Aruba, Bahamas, British Columbia Canada - Banff/Lake Louise/Whistler/Vancouver/Victoria, England, France, Italy, Mexico - Cancun/Cozumel/Los Cabos, Puerto Rico.  Also visited 40% of the United States!

Where do I want to go next?

State Fair of Texas, Dallas, TX. Tahiti is the country that has been on my bucket list the longest.  Next up is Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.  I could go on and on...

"What does one do when your daughter calls you at 2am to say, “IT problems at the Heathrow airport and I’m stuck, flights cancelled, no lines moving and no phone calls going through!”? This is why you need Alison Barnes as your travel agent! Alison went above and beyond answering her phone in the middle of the night and finding a flight out for Faith later in the day.THANK YOU! Faith was able to get to Rome with enough time to enjoy the sights."
