Cindy grew up in Curacao, Colombia, Germany, and Texas. She was a traveler with wanderlust before she ever knew the definition of the word. As a second-generation travel advisor (her mom has been in the business for 25+ years), Cindy had the great fortune of traveling at an early age- learning about different cultures, trying new foods and experiencing great adventures with her family, friends and on solo trips. 

After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with degrees in Art History & Public Relations, Cindy spent 15 years planning fundraising events for nonprofit organizations in Austin, TX and New York City, NY. But, she found her greatest joy came from planning her many trips abroad. In 2010, Cindy decided to make her passion for travel her career… it is the best decision she has ever made!

Beyond her love of travel, Cindy is a live music fan, enjoys cooking, gardening, exploring flea markets, and discovering the hidden gems and hotspots of Brooklyn, NY, where she currently lives. 

Cindy's ideal trip is one that mixes leisure with adventure. She appreciates the amenities of the world's great hotels, but always seeks out unique cultural experiences that can only be found off the beaten path. 



Arienne grew up in western New Jersey with parents who placed great importance on travel.  Each year her family looked forward to their annual vacations to locations such as Martha’s Vineyard and Hilton Head Island.

The emphasis on travel from an early age shaped Arienne’s interest in art, languages and culture.  She graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Art History, then spent the following year studying French and art in Paris at the Sorbonne. 

Upon returning to the U.S., Arienne moved to New York City and spent over 15 years planning large-scale fundraising galas for charities in New York, Denver and San Francisco.  But her love of travel persisted, and Arienne decided to transfer her event planning skills to travel planning.

Whether in NY or abroad, Arienne enjoys searching for new restaurants and learning about food and beverage trends.  Her trips may involve horseback riding through the Costa Rican hills of Monteverde, a “Tai-Chi with a Sword” class at Tucson’s Canyon Ranch resort, or dining on a Belizean beach with her husband.  For Arienne, all experiences are welcomed!
