One thing I can say is that the world is not the dangerous and scary place the media wants you to believe. Sure, some places you need to pay more attention, but I imagine you already do that in your hometown.
I have been traveling solo since June 2017 and have seen some amazing natural wonders and historical sites - Egypt, Tanzania, Morocco and European and Eastern European countries along with the United Kingdom. Each country offers something special.
I offer my travel expertise and guidance to women who are wanting to get out of their comfort zone - yet want the security that comes with traveling with someone. Having a companion allows ease and enjoyment, instead of worry.
Why: I love introducing people to new places and experiencing different cultures. I believe travel helps us to become better people. We see first hand that people are people - no matter where they live - we are all the same beneath the surface. I also love experiencing the "wow" moments that come with traveling with those who have never been out of their own country before.
Where Do You Want To Go? Do you have the desire to visit multiple countries? Perhaps you are unsure. Let me know about your daydreams - and I'll plan it - even if you have no idea, you just have the desire for it to be based around "beautiful coastlines and clear turquoise waters" - which one client requested. I will produce a mind-blowing itinerary that will fit any budget.
Having me as your travel companion, you also have the luxury of having a video of your adventure and glamour shots, since I am also a photographer and a videographer - say bye-bye selfie stick ;) This service is my gift to you and is free of charge. I will pick the best photographs taken of you and will give you access to download them via Dropbox.
How it all works: You hire me to take the pain out of figuring out the details; everything from- flights, where to stay, cost of attractions, how to get around within the city and to each location - even down to the details of what is culturally acceptable to wear, so you know what to pack. As your personal consultant and travel companion, All my expenses are covered by you, except my meals (stay, transportation and exhibit admission cost) - PLUS - my rate fee, which varies depending upon the length of the trip.
What past companions have said: "Truly loved my time with Paula! Seeing things I've never experienced in things other than photos - and let me tell you it's not anywhere close to the same thing. Paula's words of wisdom ring almost everywhere I go now ... "LOOK UP". Corinne S.
"I had a fear of traveling out of the United States, but I wanted to see where my ancestors came from. After seeing photo's of all the places Paula has been to and after talking with her for a year, I decided to book a trip with her. Traveling comes naturally to Paula and she has great organization skills; she took care of the details so I only had to show up and once I was there - I just had to relax and enjoy - which was challenging for me at times due to being claustrophobic. Paula helped me get beyond my fears that wanted to hold me back. I saw so many beautiful places that I previously thought I never would." Melody H.
