Catherine Coleman - Owner & Travel Enthusiast

Travel has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I remember wanting to be a marine biologist while I watched Flipper in my parents’ basement solely because I wanted to swim, dive and play with the marine life all day.

It wasn’t until high school that I had the opportunity to board a plane for the first time. My dad was taking me to visit my aunt in North Carolina; I had never left the country before! What a view! A memory that will never leave my mind, and a gut feeling that I will never forget!

My next adventure was to visit Ontario to find a place to live so I could attend University in 2006. This is where I met the love of my life, who came from a family who had travelled the world. Being a young couple and not having much of our own, we saved our money until we could afford our very first Caribbean vacation in 2007! We chose the Dominican Republic and as soon as my eyes met that incredible sea I knew travelling had to be part of my lifestyle. We have gone on, saving every penny we could, to see where we would end up next.

We have been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel Canada, North American, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico, Barbados, Costa Rica, France, England, and even Japan and Taiwan! Every place we have gone has a view that sets my soul on fire; that ignites my passion for different cultures.

Are you a dreamer? An experienced traveller? I have had the privilege of designing personalized experiences for travellers to the 4 corners of the globe for the past 10 years and I would love to be part of your next adventure!

Maryanne Wagstaff - Owner & Travel Professional

Travel has been something I’ve dreamed of my entire life – the castles of Ireland, the beaches of the Caribbean, the wilds of Africa.  In my youth the farthest I got was a tent in the back yard of my home in the Annapolis Valley, NS. I didn’t take my first trip out of Canada until I was 30 years old…and it hit me! I felt it all the way to my core. I knew travel needed to be a part of my life.

Fast forward 6 years later and I’ve been to Barbados, Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, 26 states in the USA and roadtripped across Canada 5 times! I haven’t made it across the ocean yet, but it’s coming SOON!

Spending all those years longing for travel has inspired me to help others make their travel dreams come true. I wish I knew then what I know now! You don’t have to wait – I can help you make those dreams come true NOW!

I’ve travelled with my spouse, with my family, and with friends and I know how each of those experiences is vastly differently from the others.

Getting married? I’m also a Destination Wedding Specialist!  

No matter where your feet roam, I can help you take your travel plans to the MACS!

I can't wait to chat with you!

Ashley Mulock - Seasoned Traveller

There are a few goals that I do my level best to live by.  One is to not regret anything, ever.  Another is to travel somewhere new every year - whether this be to a city nearby or an epic journey around the world.  Combining these two goals has lead me to experiencing the wonder of close to 50 countries to date!

Travel can be done in so many different ways.  Alone, with a pal (or a group of pals), with family, with strangers and so on.  You can decide to follow where the map takes you, book onto a tour, try something new, visit somewhere old.  There are planes, ships, trains, cars, busses, and riverboats.  Throw in some hiking, diving, sailing, sight seeing, eating, relaxing, etc and the combinations are truly limitless…and perhaps a bit daunting.

So let me help you.  I’ve experienced the joy of travelling to an All Inclusive where the last thing I had to worry about was getting on the plane.  I’ve booked myself on 6-week tours where the accommodation and transportation were taken care of but pretty much everything else was a personal choice.  I’ve travelled through countries in a rented car, just me and my Dad and a reliable GPS we named Sally.  I’ve revelled in large family vacations where we rented a house, explored together, cooked together, laughed and splashed together.

I love travel.  I love the quiet wonder and the amazing adventure of travel.  I love the different cultures and the people you meet when travelling.  I even love the parts of travel that don’t go as planned because it is in these moments that the silver linings appear.  You just never know where a missed connection can take you!

So again, let me help you.  As a guide through all the choices, as an advisor, as a contact person who can be your safety net, and maybe even as a friend.

I am so looking forward to hearing from you!!

Amanda McEachern - Travel Enthusiast

I am a travel enthusiast letting my passion take the lead in my career.  I love to travel, whether it’s a weekend away to the mountains, an all inclusive 'fun in the sun' vacation with my family, a girls trip to Vegas or exploring a country like Thailand and all it has to offer.

I grew up in Alberta and all our vacations were done on the road. I have memories of summers spent camping in the Okanogan in beautiful British Columbia and a cross country vacation to Toronto.  It wasn’t until I was 21 that I boarded a plane and headed to Mexico.  I fell in love and the travel bug hit me hard. 

Since then I have traveled to Mexico several times, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Thailand and several US States.  I’ve also had the opportunity to travel and experience almost every province/territory this great Country of ours has to offer.

I still have many places to check off my dream list, trips to be taken with close friends, family trips with my children and ones that I’d love to take just with my husband. 

I look forward to helping you plan your dream trip, family vacation, weekend getaway or anything else you may have in mind!

I am passionate about travelling and always look for the best deals wherever I shop! I want to be able to help you and your family find the best vacation deal for your price point. I took my first flight in 2002 to Washington, DC to visit a friend and I was hooked - now I want to explore the world!

I love being a Travel Professional and so far I have travelled to Las Vegas, Nevada (many times - I love it there!). I have also been to Southern California, Southern Texas, and Maine, USA. I have ventured to Bermuda, cruised the Caribbean to see Jamaica, The Grand Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Mexico and the Bahamas. Canada is the place I call home and have explored all areas of Nova Scotia with even still more ‘hidden’ places to see. I’ve been to New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Ontario and even a day was spent in Vancouver and Calgary too! Eventually wanting to have great adventures all over the world to hopefully knock a few more places off my bucket list!

Jen Rand - Travel Professional

I grew up in a small town in Nova Scotia.  I’ve always had a dream of travelling the world, experiencing different cultures and learning the history of places I’d only ever heard about in books or on tv.  Other than a road trip to Six Flags in New Jersey, when I was 10, I had never travelled outside the Maritimes. Now, I am a Mom to a beautiful baby girl and I want her to experience all this world has to offer.  My husband and I are currently planning our first big family vacation to the UK!

I decided to become a travel consultant because I am passionate about helping others achieve their own dreams.  I find great satisfaction in assisting my clients in finding their perfect vacation. 

While I specialize in European destinations, the sky is the limit with where you can go.  Whether you are looking to go on your first trip, you’re an experienced traveller, you want to relax on a beach, discover a new culture or get married in an exotic location, I can help you with that! 

As a travel consultant I will provide you with confidentiality, advice, recommendations, and a wide range of personalized booking services. I love the challenge of finding you the best possible deal. Save yourself the stress of researching your holiday on your own and let me do the work for you. Please feel free to contact me today.

Cayla Ketelaars - Travel Professional

I spent my high school years watching travel vlogs and videos on YouTube and planning all of the trips I wanted to take. I fell in love with the idea of taking a year off to travel the world. 

I moved from Alberta to Nova Scotia in 2013 right after high school, and graduated from Acadia University in 2017. My plans for a long-term travel-the-world trip after university were put on hold after I was offered a government job - but that only means I had to break up the trip into smaller parts that I can take as vacations from work. 

I started in North America with Cuba, California and Mexico but am ready to start branching out across the pond. First on my list - the Mediterranean! 

Do you need travel ideas? Are you going somewhere and not sure what to do? I would love to put my hours of watching travel videos to use and help you out!

Toni Schofield - Travel Professional

I have always loved adventure! I have always loved new and exciting things!  I traveled to Disneyworld when I was a young child and went to Portugal in Grade 11 but that was it for travel until I was married and had kids. We took our 3 kids back to NS every year to visit grandparents and a few trips to Disney. It wasn’t until my kids were older that we really began to travel. My husband and I would try to get away once a year together. Well, that quickly became  twice a year, then three times a year and so on.... The  travel bug was here to stay!  

I have been to any countries in the Caribbean such as Cuba, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Bahamas, St. Maarten and Antigua. Some I have been to numerous times!  I have been to a few countries in Europe as well such as Portugal Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland,Germany,Belgium and Luxembourg. I have trekked through the Alps on the Tour De Mont Blanc, high in the mountains and have trekked through the Nepal Himalayas and reached Everest Base Camp!

A lot of my adventure travel is done solo and I meet up with adventure companies and am looking forward to adding many more mountain adventures to my list over the next few years! My heart is in the mountains!

By far my favorite trip is to Nepal and being on Mt Everest, but I also love visiting Los Cabos in Mexico and relaxing with my family! 

Planning trips is my “hobby” and I’m always searching where to go to next!

Julianna Merta - Travel Professional

I grew up in a small town in Alberta, where I live now with my growing family, with a travel bucket list that seemed to go on forever! Growing up, we all had the travel bug in us, so family adventures were always happening whether it was an escape to Jasper or Banff, camping, or boarding an airplane! Even my little girl is asking “Where is our next adventure!”

I’ve been blessed to have seen many places here in Canada as well as out of country! Washington, DC during Memorial Day weekend, traveling the Netherlands in the summer, and multiple trips to the Disney Parks are just some of the many places I have enjoyed over the years. My favorite memories of course were in the Disney parks, it’s always a new adventure when you go and it brings the kid out in all of us! It's magical whether you're 2 or 100!

Becoming a travel agent seemed right! In my little town I’m known as the girl to talk to about Disney tips, opinions, and help!

Making your family adventure EXTRA magical is my goal!
