Ellen: The Travel Agent

The world is a big place, but I like to say she is our oldest friend. And boy, am I ready to help you get to know her better. I am a Colorado-based travel agent who designs highly personalized vacations around the globe. I work tirelessly to curate the ultimate travel experience for you and your loved ones. 

Oftentimes, I hear people say they haven’t traveled much because they just don’t know where to go or what the right way to do things is! Fortunately for you, I have spent quite a bit of time trotting around the globe and I am here to tell you there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to travel. 

So whether you are a global veteran or a travel newbie I am ready to help design a highly personalized vacation that will have you ready to pack your bags again in no time!

I have spent a lifetime reading guidebooks, visiting destinations, keeping up with the hottest travel blogs and trends.  All of which you will have at your disposal as we create an itinerary designed with you specifically in mind.

Is your perfect vacation sipping a cappuccino on a cobblestone street in Italy? Is it a safari in South Africa? Or is it living the life of luxury in Bora Bora with the ocean below you as you sleep? 

Whatever speaks to you I am here to advise you and curate a perfect vacation FOR YOU. 

 Even better, I do all the heavy lifting. From booking flights, picking the “right” hotels, to making sure all the logistics are taken care of, I handle it all. That way all you have to worry about is enjoying your time away. 

So are you ready to start planning with me? Because I am ready to curate the perfect itinerary for you! Whether you are seeking adventure, luxury, impeccable wine, or even the perfect destination to say your nuptials in, I am ready to take you to Greater Altitudes! 

The Nitty Gritty

Whatever trip is on your horizon, I would love to help make your dream a reality. I particularly enjoy working on romance (including destination weddings!), luxury, and adventure travel, but am happy to help with whatever trip you are dying to take. I work with other experienced travel specialists at Globe Getaways and if another agent is better suited to your needs, I will personally get you in contact with them. Creating a truly personalized vacation for you is my first priority! 

So whatever part of the world is calling you next, for whatever reason, I am ready to design the ultimate travel experience for you. 

Ten Travel Questions For Ellen

Favorite destination?

This is the impossible question – the world calls to me in so many ways. I will say this though; Spain has always held a special place in my heart (probably the food). I am returning in 2018 for my honeymoon and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share Spain with my (then) husband! I am also partial to all things Asia (probably the food)

What’s on the bucket list?

Can I answer “Everywhere?” No. Fine. Argentina, Cape Town, Sri Lanka, Japan, and Jordan to name a few. 

3 things you would never travel without?

My camera, a Lush Shampoo Bar and copies of my passport and other important docs. 

Favorite Caribbean island?

Well, I haven’t been to them all, but I would say either Tortola or St. John. 

Aisle, middle or window seat?

I am window girl, BUT if it is a long haul flight, I like to book two aisles next to each other. That way my fiance and I are still together but can get up to the bathroom easier. 

Biggest fear traveling?

I don’t really have travel fears – more just general fears that could happen anywhere in the world.

Upcoming travel plans?

I am headed to the Dominican Republic in December 2017 for Christmas with my family. In February I am saying my nuptials in Colorado and then headed to Lisbon and Barcelona for 2 weeks to celebrate our honeymoon! And in March, I am going to Canada to visit my brother and his wife. 

Best travel experience?

My fiance and I were lucky enough (and by that, I mean I planned our whole trip around it) to be in Chiang Mai, Thailand for the Loy Krathong festival in 2016. It was beyond anything I could have imagined. My fiance also proposed at it, so there is that too. It couldn’t have been more perfect. 

Favorite Quote?

“The brave may not live forever, but the cautious never live at all.”

The best part of being a travel agent?

Getting to make people’s travel dreams realities! I can’t wait to work with you!
