About Lara

I opened Journey Scapes Travel in 2017 out of a love for personal travel.  My travel experience varies between solo trips to groups of family and friends.  I have spent hundreds of hours in training with multiple travel suppliers to gain extensive understanding of the types of products and services available for you.  My travel education is ongoing, as I am constantly researching travel trends to add special touches to personalized travel itineraries.  Having nearly two decades of experience in emergency services dispatching, I am sensitive to safety concerns clients may have while traveling.  Most of all, I want to make sure that your travel experience is stress free and memorable...in a GOOD way!  

In January, 2020, I brought my husband, David, on board.  He is as enthusiastic about cruising and travel as I am.  We hope to help others take their dream vacations for years to come!
