"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world." – John Muir
Yesterday a couple of lucky clients disembarked American Queen Voyages' American Empress after a gorgeous, weeklong Columbia River cruise through Oregon and Washington, picked up their rental car, and are driving now to Glacier National Park for the second part of this splendid journey we planned over a year ago. I'll never forget the morning we reserved their accommodations inside the national park. If anyone's ever tried to get reservations at a hotel inside one of the national parks, you know what this is like.... And Glacier is notorious for selling out immediately once its rooms open for reservations. All our calendars were marked for months when reservations would open for July 2022. Finally, the morning in spring 2021 arrived, and the second we could book rooms, I and a tour operator I'm working with both worked the phones and internet to secure my clients' dates. After agonizingly long minutes inside a very intense booking frenzy - we did it! We got rooms at both hotels my clients requested and had their hearts set on: Lake McDonald Lodge and Many Glacier Hotel, pictured above.
Now that they're on their way to this magnificent park at last, I feel extra proud and happy for them! This level of service and attention is what all of my clients can expect, every time. My job is making your travel dreams come true and taking all that extra work off your plate.
Happily, it's been another busy week here at Nine Muses Travel with a client flying home from Peru (a minor who was volunteering and traveled there alone at age 17!), some top VIP clients in destination traveling in luxury from Madrid to Bologna and beyond in Italy - plus new requests from a family wanting to share the holidays together touring Napa Valley, a young couple yearning for Costa Rica's Pura Vida, and a client arranging a surprise birthday gift of a trip to Portugal for a family member.
As you can see, there is no "typical" client or trip here at Nine Muses Travel. Every itinerary has its own flavor and flair because each is tailored to your wishes, your travel desires, and your unique travel preferences. Every journey is designed to inspire YOU. It's such a pleasure to envision these awesome adventures with you, and I enjoy planning a trip almost as much as you'll enjoy being on it!
