I admit it. I’m the Type A Travel Mom. I love to travel, mostly in the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean, but I wouldn’t turn down any fabulous getaway. Happily married for over two decades with an only child, we like to hit the road (or the skies) any chance we get.
Why Type A? If you ever met me in person, you’d figure that one out pretty quick. I’m one of the most organized and spastic people you’ll ever run across but man, I’m so much fun. My husband just loves it when I say “Hey, I’ve got an idea! Let’s go…” He just never knows what might come next but we always have a blast. Before I jump in the car, the plane, the boat, whatever, I will have the itinerary all planned out, local restaurants selected, transportation confirmed, hotels double checked, and bags perfectly stocked.
Where have I been? Well, I am a Disney World fanatic so that’s my first love. I love Disney so much that I manage my own business as a travel planner specializing in Disney Destinations. (Check me out!) Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruises (so far the Bahamas, Mexico, Alaska, and the Caribbean), pretty much anything Disney. I also love working on trips to Universal Orlando resort. Pre-COVID, I was also working on all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean, vacations to Hawaii, and Royal Caribbean cruises but those are on the back burner for now.
I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia so I’m spoiled by breathtaking scenery every day. Mountains, beautiful foliage, rivers, and wildlife surround my daily life. The state and its proximity to Washington DC make for many historically-focused day trips as well. Living in Virginia gives me access to fabulous East Coast beaches like the Outer Banks and Brunswick Islands in North Carolina, so those would tie as my second favorite place to visit. In 2013, I traveled to the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and the Grand Tetons and found out that I am a National Park lover so I hope to do more vacations to that area of the United States in the future.
Many of my vacations revolve around theme parks or beaches. Theme parks are my passion but I absolutely love hunting for seashells and spending time with my toes in the sand. I don’t think I’ve been to a beach yet where I’m not drenched from the knee down within a few minutes of my feet hitting the sand. Even in the winter months, there’s something so rejuvenating about the saltwater. And photography! I love taking snapshots from my travels, although my skills pale in comparison to my kiddo’s.
Where to next? Keep your eyes on the blog. How can you be like me? It’s hard work baby!
