Let’s talk Honeymoons

Let’s talk honeymoons!      I have been inundated with honeymoon designs these past few months! You probably know by now that honeymoons are my FAVORITE vacations to design. Your honeymoon is most likely the most expensive and most memorable vacation that you will go on, and to be a part of such a special moment in your life is the GREATEST.  You’re recently engaged and you are knee deep in all things wedding planning- picking out the perfect venue, cake tasting, and maybe even deciding what flowers you would like to have. While it’s such an exciting time in your life, we all know that wedding planning can be stressful.  Often your honeymoon is one of the last things that you get to decide with your spouse, and while it may be one of the last things that you get to decide, it doesn’t have to be as daunting [...]

Traveling to Jamaica During COVID

Last month I was able to take the ONLY vacation that I had ALL YEAR to Jamaica. I had 7 trips planned and 2020 was supposed to be my BIG travel year to experience a lot of the destinations that I send my clients to. I whole heartedly believe that as a travel professional and business owner, I should experience what my clients will experience while in destination. It was not my first time traveling to Jamaica, but it was my first time traveling internationally since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since I specialize in destination weddings, I wanted to expand my knowledge of wedding professionals in the area so that I can recommend in destination wedding professionals to clients. I also took the time to see several all-inclusive properties while there and ended up staying at 4 different properties to see what they all had to offer. I [...]

Its Engagement Season!

ITS ENGAGEMENT SEASON!   This time of year, is one of my favorite times of the year. Not only am I excited about all things Pumpkin Spice and decorating my house for Fall and Christmas, but it’s officially ENGAGEMENT SEASON. Typically, the time from November- February is when proposals occur, and your Facebook or Instagram is filled with engagement announcements from your closest friends and family.   In fact, according to Wedding Wire’s 2019 Newlywed Report, 19 percent of engagements occur during the month of December, with Christmas Day seeing the most engagements. I know this to be true because I was proposed to on Christmas Day, in 2018. The stretch from Thanksgiving to February sees the most engagements compared to any other time of the year.   While Kendra and Company won’t be able to help you pick the flavoring of your wedding cake, or watch you say “Yes [...]

Viva La Mexico

  M E X I C O  I S   C A L L I N G   Mexico is – if nothing else – huge. And unlike a lot of the world’s biggest countries (Russia, Canada, and the USA – because of Alaska) it’s not just a frozen wasteland. Pretty much every part of the country is inhabited, and pretty much every part of the country has things going on. In fact, a trip to Mexico without a guide wouldn’t just be foolish – because you’d miss out on so much – it would be downright intimidating!   The best way to see Mexico is – simply – to make more than one trip. Pick one or two places off of this list that sound nice – and limit your touring to them. Actually find time to relax during your vacation, instead of always running around. Trust that this [...]

Flying Experience Post Covid

Things have changed! It’s a whole different world!   A few weeks ago, I had my first flight post-covid. Now, I am an experienced flyer and LOVE to fly! One of my best friends moved to Atlanta and I wanted to achieve 2 things: 1- Go see my friend and 2- See what the flying experience is like Post-COVID. Until I took this flight, I hadn’t been on a plane in over a year. Like some of you my vacations this year were nonexistent because of COVID. I had 7! Yes 7! Some for business, and some for pleasure. What a bummer, huh?!?!   Flying to Atlanta is an easy nonstop flight, with the flight time just over an hour from Raleigh/Durham. I still have clients of Kendra and Company who are still traveling the last few months of 2020 and I wanted to see what the flying experience is [...]

Yes, you REALLY need it! Travel Insurance.

Yes, you REALLY need it! So just picture in your mind you’re in Saint Lucia and you’re hiking up the famous Piton mountains. You and your significant are enjoying an exploration day of beautiful Saint Lucia. You take one wrong step and twist your ankle. There’s significant swelling that starts to appear, you can’t bear weight on your leg, and you have intense pain. What’s next? You feel as if you need to seek medical attention but are worried about how much it will cost being that you are in a different country. Buying vacation insurance is IMPERATIVE when planning any vacation. You are investing money on gaining a unique experience, sometimes thousands of dollars. Purchasing vacation insurance can help you in case the unexpected happens while you’re traveling abroad. Vacation Insurance also covers a host of other things too! Look at the list that I’ve compiled below to [...]

Why I Started my Own Business—My Open Letter

WOW. I can’t believe that this day has arrived. It has been a journey. A LONG ONE. You can basically say that 2020 was my year of awakening. A BIG awakening. Not just for me, but to all of mankind. While a pandemic was threatening the existence of mankind in a major way, here I am of starting my own Travel Agency. The audacity of me … I had been thinking about starting my own business for quite some time. To be honest, the thoughts that I couldn’t do it, were clouding my mind, my frontal lobe, the region that is responsible for judgment and reasoning—I had to insert some medical knowledge in here somewhere since that’s all I’ve ever known. I don’t know anything about business. I don’t have an entrepreneurial mindset, and honestly being an entrepreneur was uncharted territory that I knew nothing about. I was scared, [...]
