Welcome to the Chrysalis Travel Blog


Have you ever wished you had a friend that traveled the world, and shared their best travel tips and photos with you?  Have you lived vicariously through a friend’s Facebook feed as they post about their travels, wishing that you could do the same?  Do you think you would like to travel “someday,” but think it is impossible with your time and budget?

Over the years, we have heard this so many times from our friends and family as we have shared our world travels with them.  More and more of them suggested that we should start a travel blog sharing our experiences.  That is how our Chrysalis Travel blog came to be.

My husband and I have a passion for travel, and love nature and wildlife photography.

I have a background in healthcare, and have quite a bit to share about staying healthy while traveling.  We have traveled extensively around the world — by air, land, and sea — and through first-hand experience, have many savvy travel tips.  Through our photography, we want to share the emotion and beauty of the world with you.

I have loved travel planning so much, I am also a professional travel consultant with my agency, Chrysalis Travel.  I enjoy sharing with people how it IS possible for them to travel, helping them make it a reality.  Working in healthcare, I am sensitive to the special needs of people with disabilities, and believe that travel can be fulfilling and achievable to all.  My travel specialties include cruising, tours, Disney, Hawaii, and Europe.

We have a special heart for our troops, supporting charities such as the USO, Disabled American Veterans, and Wounded Warrior Project.  We also have insight into military leisure traveling.

We believe in the value of traveling, not just to ‘get away’ from the stresses of everyday life, but seeking to understand people from cultures that are different from our own.  In our travels, we experience cultural lessons from around the world, and are able to greater appreciate the many blessings in our own lives.  We have also enjoyed travel experiences with people in the ‘fandom’ worlds of Star Wars, Disney, and Harry Potter.

We thank you for joining our Chrysalis Travel family, and hope to share many travel insights with you in the future.  We want to help you “Be Transformed,” and create your own personal travel memories.
