The ultimate in travel experiences 💥

Happy Thursday Hidden Gem Travel community! A benefit of working in the travel industry is the nearly constant inspiration for every type of global travel.  From emails to webinars to near and far business meetings, I commit to continual learning so I can share what I glean with you. 

When I was in Amsterdam last month, I was fortunate to spend time in person with a number of travel industry professionals who offer absolutely incredible experiences, that while requiring a significant financial investment, give 100% ROI on memories and your travel bucket list.

Consider your upcoming life milestones worthy of a dream trip…

-A significant birthday or anniversary?


-High school or college graduation?


This week, I share one of these companies that I learned about from a top executive. The travel inspiration is priceless (and free) so read on for scoop…

💎 Hidden Gem Tip: Media-Hyped Event Travel

This past week, the travel event most highlighted was seeing the solar eclipse in North America, a rare ocurrence as most often these events are only seen over the oceans.  

Whether you’re looking to travel for a solar eclipse, major sporting event, or even Taylor Swift, a rule of thumb is to book as early as possible.  Prices rise (sometimes to gouging levels) and availability shrinks the closer you get to the event.  

My advice is to look now at 2025 to get a jump on your travel to what will become a media-hyped event.  You’ll be glad you did!
