I am an independent travel agent and have the ability to book virtually anything and anywhere. This includes:
Rental cars and other transportation services
Bachelor & bachelorette parties
Theme park tickets
Not everyone enjoys travel planning, but it's one of my favorite things in the world! My goal: make you happy.
I've Been Traveling My Whole Life
My first plane ride was when I was 5 weeks old - the minimum age to even board a plane - to visit my grandparents. Ever since, I've been obsessed with travel.
I'm pretty sure I caught the travel bug from my family. We had a collection of coins of different countries around the world from my great-grandmother's travels. When I was little, I used to play with them all of the time and I wanted to be just like her so I can have my own coin collection.
My parents also took me on trips every summer. We would go to brand new places, such as Boston/New England, Washington D.C., Virginia, Arizona, Las Vegas, The Bahamas, and many places in my home state of Florida.
I had taken cruises to the Bahamas, but in the summer of 2014 I traveled overseas for the first time to Scotland. The trip was so amazing, I went again in 2016! From cruising, I have been to ports in Mexico, Cuba, and Honduras.
I just returned home from my latest overseas trip to Tokyo, Japan! I'm very excited to share this trip with you, so please check out my blog under the "Tips" section of my site.
How I Got Here
I grew up in one of the best places in the world: Dunedin, Florida. After graduation, I attended Florida Gulf Coast University and majored in Resort & Hospitality Management. Through this program, we covered many of the aspects of the industry, including travel and tourism. I graduated with mu bachelor's degree in 2017.
While I was in school, I also earned my wedding planner certification through The Bridal Society in 2014.
Destinations by Courtney began in October of 2018 when I realized that travel was the dream I had always been searching for.
