Passionate About Travel & Creating a Lifetime of Memories

Hi!  My name is Nikki and I am the creator of Uniquely Designed Travel.  This venture is the perfect blend of my passion and my talents... travel is my passion and has been a part of my being from an early age.  Starting with family camping trips and summer beach trips up and down the east coast as a kid, I've always yearned to see and do new things!  Over the years, I've explored the big cities of the U.S. with my hubby, escaped for spa retreat weekends with my girlfriends, taken in many professional sporting events, sailed the seas on numerous cruises, road-tripped across the U.S. twice, enjoying all the small town stops along the way, mastered Disney World and Disneyland on a frugal budget without skimping on the overall "on property" experience, and created a lifetime marked with travel memories.

 

My strengths are in the areas of project management, logistics and efficiency (efficiency of time and money). Don't worry, I also know when and where it is important to splurge on both! 100% frugality is never the right answer... finding the perfect balance for your priorities is my priority. These strengths have transferred over into travel planning. Years of practice have taught me how to build a perfectly balanced itinerary. Working through all of the logistics to efficiently minimize your traveling time between destinations and maximize your experience while at your destination! Using all of my resources to gain access to both the best possible deals and the most unique experiences for your group.

 

Most recently, I have excelled at traveling internationally with my family of 5... often with a grandparent or family friends joining us for the adventure.  Through years of researching, I've mastered finding the path less traveled and creating custom itineraries that avoid the large tour groups and don't break the bank!  Planning trips that appeal to all generations traveling, fully immersing ourselves in the local culture, exploring museums in unique ways that keep the kids' interest, canvasing the cities in a way that doesn't wear grandma out.   Luxury hotels, all-inclusives, boutique lodging, Airbnb or rustic camping, we've done it all!  Planes, trains, automobiles, boats and rv's... we find our way!

Travel to 33 of the U.S. states and over 30 International destinations has taught me how to travel in ultra luxurious ways, rustic ways and cost effective ways.  Whatever your preference, let me use my tools to help make your travels be the best that you could imagine!  Camping on the beach in Big Sur, chasing the Northern Lights, enjoying a cup of coffee at a quaint cafe near the Louvre, extreme via ferrata adventures, cooking with Nana in the Italian countryside, hiking inside a glacier in Iceland, finding the perfect Koh Soi in Chiang Mai, whatever experience you are chasing, whatever environment you are seeking, whatever destination you are dreaming of...

 

Let me help you create a trip full of memories!
