REFILLING YOUR CUP TO BETTER HELP THOSE AROUND YOU….

We want to encourage you to be self-full, to spend time nurturing your own spirit. In addition to families and couple journeys, we offer  women-specific journeys.   What better way to connect with your loved ones than to travel, with new experiences creating new life-long vivid memories for each of you? It’s our joy to enable parents to give the gift of a wider world view to their children.

LET US DO THE PLANNING…….

Finding time to get away is a big enough challenge in our lives. So we take care of all the pre-trip details – flights, transport ,guiding,  accommodations and all activities. We have spent lots of time in each area to find the best guides, locations and activities to create a memorable fun experience.

We invite you to experience, learn, grow, relax and be happy!

ABOUT OUR LOCAL WORKSHOPS:

We wish that everyone could find time to travel with us, but we know that that is not always possible.  That’s why we created our short workshops in your local area to give you the opportunity for a crash course in moving toward a fuller, happier life.   Our workshops topics vary by theme and can be fully customized for your group.  We have recently been working with small parties, to promote wellness through nutrition, delicious healthy eating tips, and fun fitness.

Life is for living…I’ve learned first-hand and often, travel and the vast variety of experiences it invites, opens up your spirit and expands your vision.

 

Born in Colorado, I moved to Florida at age 12; I settled quickly and comfortably into the life of a Florida beach girl. After receiving a degree in Marketing and Photography (including various interesting classes not in my field of study) at UNF, I moved to Upstate New York to work on the Iroquois (Oneida) territory. It was a life-changing experience that intiated my nomadic lifestyle and teaching career.

 

After my year was complete, I moved to Vermont, where I became a snowboard instructor and yoga teacher.  Working as much as possible in the Winter and traveling as much as possible in the summers, I have been  able to visit and/or live in beautiful paradises including Mexico, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Bali, Komodo Island, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, Alaska, Barbados and Puerto Rico, El Salvador, and Guatemala. I spent a few summers as a hiking guide in Vermont and realized that my passion is to inspire others to “step outside the box” and truly live their lives.   The main requirements for achieving this: courage and motivation.  Once you make up your mind that you can do something new, you have already conquered half the battle!

 

I strive to LIVE A HAPPY LIFE which is why I chose this name for the business.  Living happy is something that we all dream about and can achieve.   It’s sometimes a simple life, and yes, there are always challenges, but the only thing we really have control of in life is our reactions and actions!! So take action now, and let’s just see if we can make your dreams come true!!
