Mimi Schaefer- Owner, Travel Specialist

 "I have had the privilege of hiking a 10K on the Great Wall of China, looking down in awe on Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate, riding a camel around the Great Pyramid of Giza, helping to rebuild homes in Thailand, teaching students in China about business and American culture and caring for Orphans in Guatemala, Mexico and Ethiopia.  With over 20 international destinations personally visited I understand the needs of travelers and the joy that is received from meeting amazing locals, experiencing unbelievable flavors in the cuisine, and learning of the deep history and rich culture that surrounds us in this amazing world.”
