Thank you so much for all of your careful attention and work to plan this magnificent trip for us - we have both been singing your praises to everyone we know!

Travel Looks Different for Everyone

Exploring With Intention

Prioritizing Personalization,

No two experiences are the same. We all have different preferences, interests, and goals when it comes to visiting a place. I'm here to help you travel your way, always.

I believe in genuinely getting to know a place beyond just exploring its must-visit attractions. Why are the culture and history the way they are, and how do they help contribute to the destination?

The beauty of travel is that it can look different for everyone. Whether you’re seeking an adventurous escape, a relaxing five-star retreat, or an unforgettable experience, know that any travel experience you desire is welcome here.

We were provided with an itinerary that was just for us that we could choose to follow step-by-step or be flexible with.

Recommendations, must-dos, and options were spread throughout the itinerary to make it feel like it was truly just meant for us!

Hey wanderer!

Yup, same.

JLJ Travel was built on the belief that there had to be something better when it came to planning travel. 

Cookie-cutter, pre-packaged, generic trips were just never my vibe, but it seemed like everywhere I looked, those were exactly the types of trips travel agencies were selling. 

By taking the time to truly listen what you're looking for, we craft getaways that are unique, authentic, and 100% custom for YOU.
