If you can’t wait till we can travel again, stop dreaming…
Have you considered what you can do to travel more consciously?
You’ve probably heard the buzz words “sustainable tourism” or “sustainable travel,” but travelling consciously is more about our own mindset than it is about doing something because it’s a new trend.
If we can all travel more consciously, meaning being more mindful of the impact we make on those destinations we so desperately want to explore, everyone will benefit—the locals, the wildlife, the environment and you, as well as future generations of travellers.
Conscious travel is all about connecting with and supporting local communities, respecting different cultures and individuality, as well as protecting the wildlife and the environment. It’s about making a positive impact when we travel rather than a negative one.
If you’re of the mindset that you’d like to make a more positive impact when you travel and need ideas on how to do so, download my fun infographic on 6 things you can do to travel more consciously.

Bucket List Destinations I Specialize In
Below are four bucket list destinations I specialize in. I have either visited these destinations many times or studied them intensively, and have completed specialist training through the corresponding tourist boards to help my clients plan their once in a life time vacations. Which of these destinations are on your bucket list too? Plan your adventure sooner rather than later and check one more destination off your bucket list!
Off-The-Beaten-Track Destinations to Consider for your Next Adventure
Want to travel around the world checking off one bucket list destination at a time?
It’s never too early to start planning!
We should chat about your options for when you feel comfortable travelling again. With the pent up need to travel again, increased demand for off-the-beaten-track destinations, and travellers using their travel vouchers to rebook travel to some of the most sought after destinations, there will be reduced availability and possibly above usual price increases. With many suppliers offering Book with Confidence policies and late cancellations, it’s worthwhile considering booking now for future travel. Kaz Custom Travel will be only too glad to help research your options.
4 Steps to working with Kaz Custom Travel to plan your next Adventure Around the World
Inspiration from our Blog for When You're Ready to Travel
This week on our virtual tour Around the World from A-Z is all about the Dominican Republic. This Caribbean island probably doesn’t need an introduction for many Canadians. It has been a popular winter vacation destination for many Canadian snowbirds for a long time. However, for those that don’t know about the DR, or need a little travel inspiration, read on to find out more about this beautiful tropical island and what makes it more than just a beach destination.
This week on our virtual tour Around the World from A to Z, it’s all about Costa Rica. This Central American country has been on my bucket list for a while, and I can’t wait until we can travel again to explore its volcanoes, forests, rivers and waterfalls. I’m planning a women only travel group to this lush tropical destination for when we can travel again. In the meantime, here is some inspiration for you.
This week in our virtual tour Around the World from A to Z, the British Isles is featured. I have already written about Britain on another page, but this week I will also include differences to look out for when driving in the British Isles as well as safety tips for pedestrians, safety tips for solo female travellers. I also highlight some features in my favourite region, plus share six ways you can travel sustainably in the British Isles.
Starting with Austria, this year, Kaz Custom Travel will take you on a journey around the world from A to Z, virtually that is, until we can travel again. Throughout 2021, we will feature a different destination around the world corresponding with a letter of the alphabet. We hope to feature one destination a week, but due to time constraints and our work schedule, it may be less often. Our goal is to provide you with some travel inspiration as we share a few titbits about each destination, a few travel tips, fun facts and foodie ideas, as well as safety and sustainable tourism insights, for when we can travel again.
The Bahia Principe Grand Tulum, Mexico, welcomes travel advisors on an Air Canada Vacations FAM trip to experience health & safety protocols first hand. Fellow TPI travel advisor talks to OpenJaw about her experience.
As a travel advisor, I want to encourage my clients to travel as sustainably as possible, and tend to only train with and support tour operators, cruise lines and resorts, that practice sustainable tourism. October’s social media topic is Cultural Communities. I was inspired to choose this topic and to write this blog post on Rethinking Travel in a Post-Pandemic World, after attending one of G Adventures webinars a few weeks ago, and realizing that there needs to be a real and big (as in global) change in the way we travel. This is the first of three blog posts on the subject of sustainable tourism.

Adventure & Vacation Planning for Couples, Families & Groups
Custom Vacations, Cruises & Tours
Although my main focus is helping solo female travellers experience the world safely, I do also help couples, multi-generational families and groups who are looking for an exciting adventure and/or a special and memorable trip.
Are you a couple wanting to honeymoon in Fiji or celebrate an anniversary in Saint Lucia? Have you always wanted to go on an island hopping adventure in Greece, an inter-island cruise in Hawaii, an adventure by rail through Europe or a cruise along the stunning Mediterranean coast? Maybe a European river cruise along the Danube or a grand tour of Switzerland is more your style?
Perhaps you’re looking for an all-inclusive annual vacation to the Caribbean but somewhere off the beaten track for a change? Have you finally decided to take that once-in-a-lifetime trip to Australia and New Zealand? Is hiking the Inca Trail in Peru the next item to check off your bucket list? Or do you want to take your grand kids on an educational adventure with National Geographic? How about a river cruise with Ancestry?
These are just some of the trip ideas I can help you with. As a specialist in a variety of bucket list destinations, no matter what you’re looking for I’d be glad to help you plan your next trip. My goal is to ensure you have everything needed to meet all your travel expectations and more.
