Andrea with Travel by Design put together an unforgettable camping/hiking trip for our two teenage boys, Grandmother and old aunt to Alaska. Now that’s quite the divers group to satisfy. It was a trip of a lifetime both for the boys and Grandma. The trip was extremely well organized with tons of activities for everyone to pick from. They had to roughen it a little but they had been well prepared for that with detailed packing list and even food requests well ahead of time. They came back tired but full of awe.

Check out Sven’s Web site Svenskafegallery.com Monica and Danielle at MayCreate helped us put that together. We couldn’t have done it without them; they are very easy to work with, patient, charge reasonable fees, and are obviously very talented. Thank You MayCreate!!


Andrea just sent my Brother, Daughter and I on an incredible “All-inclusive” to Cancun (Playa-del-carmen). It was 7 nights and $530 per person approximately, which included food, adult beverages, airfare, and hotel….

My Brother and Daughter had never been anywhere like this and just loved it! We had daily use of snorkeling equipment (which we had never done and it was a blast), catamaran rides daily, 2 full buffet’s from 7:00 a.m. till 11:00 p.m., 3 dinners from choice of 5 of the finest restaurants (even compared to here), April swam with the dolphins, we shopped in downtown Playa, awesome live entertainment several nights, vendors came to the courtyard, a game room with air hockey, pool tables, TV, “fun atmosphere”, internet, 4 pools (that I remember), etc. Some of the nicest staff I’ve ever encountered. It was a family vacation to remember, for sure! I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but it was truly a wonderful trip!


Andrea coordinated my honeymoon in Mexico.  She did such a fabulous job.  She gave me options and stayed within my price range.  The resort was beautiful, I wish I was there right now!  Thank you Andrea for all your help!!
