My name is Ingrid Theresa and I started a travel blog in 2012.  My dedication to travel falls in line with my decision to stop putting off my desire to leave my 9-5 desk job behind and travel as much as possible. I’ve had the travel bug since the mid-late nineties. I remember wanting to visit every country on the map! Back then, I could only travel when I took my annual, one week vacation.

I became an independent travel planner/agent about five years ago.  I’d spent years planning and booking travel for family, friends and friends of friends for free.  I left a corporate sales position,  where I was exceeding sales goals and winning incentive trip after incentive trip. That was fun, but I wanted more!

I wanted to travel the world, talk about it (mostly through my travel blog), plan and book memorable vacations,  and exciting, stress-free group and solo trips. I also enjoy the sometimes tedious, sometimes fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants preparations, the busy airports, train stations and cruise ports, cocktails in transit, maneuvering my way around new cities, the excitement of trying new foods, and meeting new people.
