Checking TripAdvisor reviews, asking a friend of a friend for recommendations and reading travel blogs only gets you so far. That is, unless you’re reading my blog, which clearly gives you all the information you’ll ever need…obviously. I’m talking about working with a travel agent whose job it is to know the best possible hotels, guide companies and itineraries for your adventure. Then, that super knowledgeable human actually doing all the leg work of booking everything for you to create a next level trip for the next level traveler, all in half the amount of time and effort compared to doing it solo.
Case in point: we had the opportunity to go on a month long Asian adventure, but only had 2 weeks to plan it before leaving with the toddler in tow. So we brought in the expert travel agent, Tami cofounder of For Business or Pleasure Travel, to handle the planning from top to bottom. Right away I think it was clear that I was forming a serious travel crush on her and wasn’t shy about showing it. So on top of the pressure of the planning timeline came the added awkwardness of me fan-girling every time we spoke.
