I am not sure how travel became such a love for me. I don’t enjoy flying but I know it is necessary to see this big, beautiful world. As a boy growing up our family would hop in the station wagon and drive to the National Forest or go visit family a state or two away, that was extent of my travel. After my wife and I went on our first cruise in 1995, we have traveled to many wonderful places including: Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Hawaii, Tahiti, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Mexico, Honduras, Belize, Costa Rica and Europe. I love to travel and look forward to seeing much more of this wonderful world. We are planning a Viking River Cruise in April of 2018 to the Rhine River and a 10 day cruise through the islands of Tahiti in 2019. Come join us!!
My husband often says I put together travel itineraries in my sleep! I have been selling travel for 31 years, since I was teenager working at my parent's travel agency and have co-owned our agency since 1994. I am passionate about what I do and believe that "If you love what you do…you will never work a day in your life" There are very few countries that I haven't travelled too. I have spent my lifetime educating, training, selling the product and travelling. I have a masters degree in Geography and a bachelors degree in Travel & Tourism from Brigham Young University. I spent 7 years teaching and educating college students at Brigham Young University and in the New Hampshire Community College system in their respective travel and tourism programs. As a Certified Travel Consultant, since 1993 expertise matters! Why not use a TRUE professional in the business...not just a start up? Group business is one of my favorite aspects of the business. “The world is a book and those who don’t travel only read on page!" - St. Augustine
“My love for travel and geography began as a young girl listening to my grandpa, who was a U of U geography professor, talk about geography and travel. As a teenager my parents took us on a cruise for Christmas. I realized then that memories last forever, but toys and gifts get broken and forgotten. I graduated from the geography department of BYU with a degree in Travel in Tourism in April 1996. I have worked for Trips Inc. since May 1996. I have lived in Austria and traveled all over Europe, Hawaii, Cambodia, Mexico, and the U.S.. Cruises are some of my favorite vacations to go on.” Wells is certified with Princess, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Cunard Cruise Lines, Holland America cruise lines as well as a Disney specialist, Hawaii specialist, Mexico specialist and many others…the list goes on!
