Adventure travel is more than a passion for Melissa — it’s a way of life!
Melissa began her travel adventures early in life, raised in the Mississippi River town of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, by parents who wanted their children to see every state from the back seat of the family Buick. They almost made it — missing only Alaska and Hawaii. (Buicks, alas, do not float.)
Melissa accepted her husband-to-be’s proposal on a glacier in a small hotel situated halfway up the Eiger Mountain in the Swiss Alps. As an MBA student at Washington University, she returned to Europe to work abroad in Belgium, spending weekends discovering all things European in her little rental car.
From sleeping under the stars in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum, Jordan, to rafting down the Jordan River in Israel, to landing in a seaplane on a glacier near Mount McKinley, Melissa has obtained a wide world of travel experience that she’s ready to use in creating the trip of a lifetime for her clients.
Fortunate to live part-time in Zurich, Melissa is taking full advantage of the opportunities to learn and experience destinations throughout Europe to the benefit of her clients. She traveled down to Lugano to gain first hand knowledge to match clients with best hotel fit. She has greeted clients as they arrived at the Zurich airport, just because she could!
My most interesting travel experience would be sleeping on the sand, under the stars at a Bedouin camp in the desert of Wadi Rum, Jordan. The next morning my family and I observed little animal footprints all around their sleeping bags.
The Galapagos Islands takes claim as Melissa’s favorite travel destination. “Frolicking with sea lions in the surf is amazing.”
Bring eye mask, earplugs and a few KIND energy bars for the plane.
