“I want to see the world, but following someone else’s itinerary sounds limiting. I want to do it my way. But how?”

“I totally want to visit *insert Bucket List destination*! I wish I knew how to plan a trip like that…

“I love the idea of planning my own international trips, but there’s so much information out there! Where do I even start?!”

Sound familiar?

If so, then you’ve come to the right place. Whether you want someone to help plan your next trip or you’d like to learn how to do it on your own, this is where you’ll find everything you need to start checking off that bucket list!


Planning your own travels can be intimidating, for sure! I was nervous when I started too, but you don’t have to do it alone. I’m here to provide all the information you need to feel confident and ready for adventure!

Right now, you’re probably a little overwhelmed. You want to travel on your own, but there’s so much information out there and it’s hard to know where to start. You’re not sure if you can afford it or how you’ll even get yourself around in a foreign country! 


You dream about sipping coffee on the patio of a cafe in Paris and being struck speechless by the ancient temples of Angkor Wat. But more than that, you long to connect with these places and their people, getting to know them in an authentic and real way!

You’ve done multiple internet searches that end up taking you to blog posts and videos telling you all sorts of really cool things ABOUT the places you want to visit. But you haven’t found much about HOW to put it together without emptying your bank account or being shuttled from place to place on a tour bus, following someone else’s itinerary. Now you’re feeling disappointed and that maybe this dream will always be just that, a dream.


What if you could plan your own travels and get on that airplane confident you have everything you need to have the adventure of a lifetime when you land on the other side? And as a result you had more amazing experiences, memories, and stories than you ever imagined possible? 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”~ Mark Twain

I’m Annie, and I help other adventurers at heart who want to travel independently (solo, with friends, or a significant other) get everything they need to plan their own international trips so they can travel with confidence and connect authentically with their destination(s). Learn more about me…
