MEET MELISSA MEREDITH FAIL
Lead Travel Advisor
Years ago, my husband and I sold all our belongings (yes, all of it), bought a huge 40-foot-long diesel pusher motorhome and started our epic tour of the United States.
It was just the two of us and the open road. And often—a cruise ship!
As much as we loved RV life, what I was most excited about was how much more cruising and continent-hopping our new nomadic lifestyle would allow us to enjoy. We would drive to the nearest cruise port, park our RV and hop on a ship—and every time an amazing adventure ensued.
Cruising to Alaska and taking a 4x4 ride up to the top of a glacier, where I indulged in a breathtaking—albeit chilly!—picnic on the ice.
Sailing over the dark waters of the Atlantic on a 26-day voyage, and marveling when we spotted the green mountains of the Azores—Portuguese islands nearly 1,000 miles from the European coast—rising out of the ocean.
Winding our way through Eastern Europe on a river cruise, checking delightful destinations like Austria, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, and Romania off our bucket list.
Even better than the river cruise, though, was the excursion we took into the countryside of Hungary. The curving back road led us to a tiny village, where the villagers invited us into their church and put on a play for us —a play they had written themselves about the town's history!
FOR TWO YEARS, WE CRISSCROSSED THE U.S. - AND REALLY, THE WORLD
This trip was the culmination of my lifelong obsession with travel. Long before we bought our RV, I spent as much time as I could exploring. I lived in 10+ states (including Hawaii), and prioritized international travel as much as possible with a growing family.
And while I have settled back into a less nomadic lifestyle (at least, for now!) I still take joy in planning adventures and making new, unexpected discoveries.
This time, though, the adventures are for my clients!
I create custom escapes for travelers who are eager to embrace a new adventure but don’t want the hassles that come with travel planning.
That’s why, when you work with us, there are a few things you can always count on:
You save time and eliminate stress!
Planning your trip should bring you joy, not headaches. But too often, trip planning is just another overwhelming item to add to your to-do list. We take the planning off your plate—so all you have to do is show up, ready to embrace adventure.
You get a real, LIVE person on the other end of the line.
We’re not an oversized, impersonal agency. No, not at all. We listen to your needs (starting on your complimentary consultation call) and respond with care answering every single one of your questions with patience.
And you have support every step
of the way.
We’re here to not just book your flight—but to make sure you know who will greet you at the airport. We’re on call while you travel, because if problems arise you shouldn’t have to solve them while you try to enjoy your vacation.
Ultimately, we connect all the dots for you, so you can travel with confidence—even as you discover new, incredible destinations.
Because, as I learned on my own epic adventures, there’s a whole big world out there for you to explore. And you should let nothing hold you back from exploring the special destinations that have been calling to you.
My goal? To not just show you the world—but to make it an easy, stress-free, and oh-so joyful experience, from the moment you reach out to my team.
