Maternity leave is officially underway! I have wrapped up final pre-leave trip details, my out of office is up, and I am officially awaiting baby girl #3! As a friendly reminder, I will be on maternity leave until June. When I firm up the exact dates, you will be the first to know!
I do plan on checking emails prior to her arrival and during my maternity leave, but please expect delays in response – 3+ days. You’ll either hear from myself of one of the HCTC Team members. Either way, you will receive a response! 🙂
For anyone that still needs to get your vacations on the books, don’t hesitate to fill out my Plan Your Trip Form. Working in the industry for 13 years comes with amazing colleagues and I am happy to refer you to one!
I appreciate your support, understanding, and continued grace during this time! If you have any questions at all, please let me know. I, along with the HCTC team, cannot wait to continue to plan your special vacations!
This month I am featuring Jessie + Rudi’s Honeymoon to New Zealand and Tahiti! This beautiful itinerary could not have turned out better for such a well deserving, kind couple! Rudi + Jessie were a dream to work with so watching it unfold and them trust my on the ground partners wholeheartedly brings a bit of a tear to my eye 😉 They got to experience some of the best of Bora Bora and New Zealand and I’m beyond grateful to play a role in that!

A pilot told me years ago, while on a particular bumpy flight of course, to think of turbulence as potholes in the sky. After all, there’s essentially a “road map” for flight plans and just like potholes on the road, we get a little bumpy at 30k+ feet. Hope that eases your mind like it does mine! You can read more about turbulence in this AFAR article.
As always, let me know how I can assist with your next trip!
