Caribbean getaways for couples and families


Some people first catch the travel bug while studying abroad as college students or booking honeymoon adventures with their sweethearts.

Others, like me, are travel enthusiasts the moment they got their passport. Given my early love of exploration, it was only fitting that I found myself working as a travel consultant. In the last Nine years, I have established one of the most significant travel agencies in Western Canada with 40 travel agents.

As a travel agent, my goal is to help a variety of clients book their dream vacations. I am particularly passionate about planning Caribbean getaways, in part, because I have spent so much time there in the past.

I believe that, by pursuing a wide array of personal travel adventures, I have better positioned myself to provide accurate feedback for my valued clients. In fact, my favorite trip involved a stay at the Exuma region of the Bahamas, where I was able to relax on some of the world's most beautiful beaches and sample five-star cuisine.

Thorough research is essential, of course, but I believe that vacationers are best served when they work with travel agents who have actually visited the destinations they book. There's something about a firsthand travel experience that just cannot be replicated by reading a book or glancing at resort reviews.

By relaying stories from my favorite expeditions, I make it possible for aspiring vacationers to enjoy their own dream vacations

why i love to travel

Some travel to find themselves; others travel to lose themselves. I travel simply because I enjoy the experience. Whether it’s discovering new places or rediscovering places I’ve been to, I love gaining a new perspective of the world, and if I can pick up another language, even better. While I may not gain the life changing spirituality that some seek, I have definitely developed a more reflective way of seeing and thinking about the world around me. I see the world more clearly, as if looking through a pair of glasses, and I have a better understanding of it. Therefore, the more I travel, the clearer the world becomes.

We have been booking with kris for 7 years and he has been spot on everytime. There's a huge difference with dealing with ACTUAL OWNERS of an agency instead of someone clocking in.
