    Your Next Cherished Travel Memory Starts Here 

    You deserve a travel experience that’s richly rewarding, endlessly inspiring, and effortless in every way. Let me make it happen for you—here’s what you can expect when you trust your travels to Vacations Inspired: 

    Flexible, Independent Travel—with a Polished Touch 

    When it comes to developing your ideal itinerary, your travel dreams and desires lead the way. I specialize in highly customized travel, so your journey will be designed according to your preferred pacing and travel style, and what’s on your “must see” list. Plus, I’m here to make every part of your journey—from the planning to the logistics to on-the-ground travel—as seamless as possible. And with 12 years of travel planning experience under my belt, I can spot the opportunities in your journey to add in extra doses of discovery—like designing a custom pre- or-post stay along with your cruise, so you can explore astounding ports of call in more depth. 

    Take Advantage of Industry Connections 

    A simple Google search can reveal a lot about a destination—what to see, do, eat, and enjoy. The only problem? Every other tourist has access to that same information! To get way off the beaten tourist path—and into the truly authentic side of your destination—you need the right connections.

    As your personal travel advisor, I provide you with just that. Let me pair you with expert locals who can reveal the hidden gems of your destination; enjoy “cut-the-line” experiences, excursions with vetted guides, and private, hands-on activities tailored to your interests. 

    Going the Extra Mile, for Every Mile 

    My promise? To go above and beyond for you, from the moment you become my client. There’s a lot of travel info out there, and I know it can be hard to sift through it all on your own.

    Turn over your travel dreams to me, so I can guide you to the very best options for your dreams, dates, and price range.
     Plus, thanks to my trusted travel network, I’m often able to snag you extra vacation perks, like complimentary breakfast, early check in/late check out, and more.  And if you have a clink-worthy occasion you’re celebrating on vacation—like a birthday or anniversary—I’ll work with you to make the moment unforgettable with extra special arrangements.

    What My Clients Say

    The booking was super easy and Julie was willing to give us options. It was fun for me, as I'm usually the trip planner, to have the hotel and outings be a bit of a surprise since I didn't have to agonize over every detail myself beforehand. Thank you so much for helping us to have a wonderful time. I'm certain we'll be working together again!

    - Abby

    Alaska was beyond belief in beauty. The cruise was just right and we never had a hitch in the plans. Skagway, Juneau and Victoria were very friendly towns and Julie's information was spot on.

    - Lizann

    We loved that we didn't have to plan anything! Thanks for being awesome and helping us all figure out phones, flights, tours, etc. It was a great trip and we wish we were still there!

    - #allthesingleladies

    Julie was a fabulous and informed travel agent! She took care of all of the details, and was very responsive to our numerous questions. She even took care to inform our cruise ship about our anniversary, so we were greeted with balloons, a welcome sign, and a yummy cake. The vacation details were handled expertly and efficiently. Thank you!! 

    - Chuck

    There was nothing I didn't like about working with Julie through the whole process. Our trip was complicated at different points, with several changes due to other family members changing their minds etc. Julie was always very helpful in adjusting our plans. I also appreciated that Julie is cost-conscious relative to what we were looking for. Just an awesome job that she did.

    - GH

    Our journey has been beyond our expectations! So many new friends! Thank you so
    much for the help you have given us. You took several kinks out of our path.
    Look forward to working with you again.
