About

OUR MISSION

We help INTREPID travelers enhance their adventures so they love LIFE again. 

Our mission is to tailor experiences that inspire you to live your best — every day in every way. So that your holidays not only linger in your mind but are ever a part of your life.

Wellness travel is meaningful, lasting, authentic, spacious, and sustainable. It goes beyond the spa and is deeply personal. Wellness is whatever makes you feel more alive. 

We help INTREPID travelers enhance their adventures so they love LIFE again.

Hello there.
I'm Cassandra.

Certified yoga therapist, former PBS attorney, scribbler of poems and prose, and undisputed queen of great hats.

I don’t just offer travel; I craft stories. Stories you can enter and experience yourself. Memories you can treasure and share. And the best stories surprise you and delight you, right? 

THE BEST PART of my job? the SOUND OF YOUR VOICE WHEN YOU RETURN FROM YOUR TRIP.

It only took 10 days to change my entire life. Now, I love to design trips that’ll transform your life, too.

I love deep conversations over exquisite meals, but witty puns and debates make my heart sing. I’m a writer, knitter, and pretty consistent meditator (for 20 years, looooong before it was cool, because of a vacation). And I relish a good bath with a delicious 19th-century novel and a long en bouche wine, at any time of day.

I believe trips can transform everything. Because of a trip to Italy in 1994, I started to practice yoga — the start of not one but two love affairs. Because of another trip in 2002 to the Caribbean, I trained to become a yoga therapist. Because I know firsthand how travel changes lives, I live to design trips that transform you.
