Why Do You Travel? Travel means life. It’s the best addiction a person can have. It’s connected me to my best friends, my best self, and the best of the world. It reminds you to be honest, humble, and kind. It absolutely forces you to be who you truly are. It’s crazy, wild, and fun. And the jokes aren’t bad either.
For the month of April, we are tickled pink to present to you all one of the most lovely and hilarious members of our guide team: Carrie Robinson! Like many of our trip leaders, we met Carrie when she came on one of our trips. We were fortunate enough to have her on our Greece & Turkey adventures as well as our inaugural Costa Rica & Panama trip. This gave us ample time to get to know Carrie’s calm, cool, and compassionate demeanour and fall completely in love with it. From her witty and coy sense of humour to her intelligent and thoughtful 1-on-1 chats to her breath-taking karaoke performances, we knew she belonged in the driver’s seat right away!
It’s already been 4 years since we brought Carrie in to guide trips and we’ve been able to throw her all across the globe, from Southeast Asia to Central America to the Mediterranean and everywhere she goes she – to put it bluntly – kicks ass! She’s a total warrior, she’s uber talented and her travelers rave about her no matter what trip she’s running. We know when to say we’re lucky and we truly are blessed to have her as part of our team and we hope to keep her around for a long time to come!

“This trip was an incredible experience, we had the best leaders, an awesome yacht full of the best group of people I could ask for including the boat crew which were unreal. Carrie is such a great guide! I can’t wait to do another trip with her.” -Trip Member Kelsey
