Forbes Travel Guide endorsed agency!

It's been a week since I returned from Mallorca and Gran Canaria, but my heart hasn't left Spain yet. Part of me is still hiking in Gran Canaria, sipping delicious Mallorcan wines at a small vineyard, and definitely still smiling and laughing with the wonderful people I met along the way. The intoxication of travel's freedom and joys leaves a kind of hangover when you're back home, doesn't it?

It feels amazing to be out and about again, especially considering one year and three days ago (thanks, Facebook memories) was the last day of the NYC Test + Trace program, where I worked for two years during the pandemic. I was on the phones until its last day, and then my remote team and I finally met in person that night at Dallas BBQ and had huge slushy drinks to celebrate the bittersweet end of our work together. It's important to note milestones to mark our ways through life and to take a moment to reflect on how where we are right now is a reflection of where we've been. To really bring home how much change a year can bring, I have a great announcment to share.

Nine Muses Travel is an independent affiliate of Gifted Travel Network, and we're excited to announce GTN has been named one of the FIRST Forbes Travel Guide endorsed agencies! As a Forbes Travel Guide endorsed agency, Nine Muses Travel clients will benefit from enhanced access and recognition at nearly 1,400 of the world’s most luxurious hotels in 81 countries.

I'm exceedingly proud Nine Muses Travel has come through everything stronger than ever. I know I have the best clients in the world, and I tell all the suppliers on my trips about you! Did you know that? When I'm at a conference and asked who my clients are, I describe you as highly educated, culturally curious, and open-hearted, wanting to discover a destination by feeling like a local, not just a tourist. Then they ask about your demographics, so I tell them I work with everyone: groups, singles, families and couples (including LGBTQ+) of all ages from 20's to 90's. I tell them my clients share a sensability, not a demographic. This always impresses them - because you are an impressive group of people, and

I absolutely love being your travel advisor.
