I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list.

Hi! My name is Ashley Berndsen, and I LOVE to travel!
I was officially bitten by the travel bug at a young age. At 16, I moved to Australia as a foreign exchange student and graduated high school abroad. Since then, I have traveled to the Caribbean, Europe, Hawaii, Central America, Mexico, Tahiti, Norway, across the United States and of course…back to Australia!

In addition to being a travel agent, I am a homeschool mom to two little girls, ages 10 and 7. As a mom, I now love to teach my own children the beauty of experiences over things, as we travel the world together. We love to venture to new destinations each year, as we explore the beauty and diversity the planet has to offer. I have a background in Project Management, and love to use that skill to create custom vacations including the tiny details and the big goals. I have a lifelong love for travel and adventure, and look forward to helping you plan your next Grand Getaway!

My Favorite Places To Travel

-National Parks

Better to see something once than hear about it a thousand times

Ashley's tips for traveling with young children Internationally

For years, I dreamed of traveling with my family to far away places. I researched tips, made bucket lists, penny pinched finances and dreamed of the day it could become a reality. In those young diaper changing days, the possibility of those dreams seemed nearly impossible…but I still held fast to the potential.
