So you want to break out and take an unforgettable holiday independently, but you are a tad nervous on how to do this. You imagine being in your dream destination, which brings you so much happiness until that little voice in your head starts whispering to you saying:

How do I plan this on my own? Where do I start? Am I going to be safe over there? What if I become ill or fall? How do I know I’m not getting scammed? How do I manage all my money? Are traveler’s cheques still a good idea? How do I figure out how to get around in a place I’ve never been? How much do I pack? And the list goes on and on.

I know this because I faced all those same questions when I started traveling independently. Yes, I had fails and screw-ups, I got really sick, I got my bag and passport stolen, but you know what, I also had AMAZING adventures, I had big wins, I learned from my mistakes, I saw sights that I didn’t think I would ever see, and I discovered that this world, no matter where you are, people are so much more helpful and friendly than we think. The bad things didn’t matter because the good things ALWAYS outweighed them. So, yes, things may not always go the way you want when you travel, but you get through it, and man, those end up being some of the BEST stories.

With this program, I want you to learn from all my mistakes, and all my experiences and research of this amazing place we call Earth. I will take you from nervous and worried to confident and excited. I want you to experience a transformation as I did when I was travelling. I proved to myself that I am a badass and I should not ignore my own potential. My confidence shot through the roof every time I did something outside my comfort zone, and going out of those little comfort zones only take a couple minutes of courage and then you are on the other side wondering why you didn’t do this sooner. Peter Pan said “to live will be an awfully big adventure” so take heed when Oscar Wilde said “to live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.”

Lets break you free and start living your best life!

The whole program was so interesting and informative. My wife and I only take cruises or visit family and friends. We had a cruise booked next year for my birthday but after taking this course, I have since cancelled the cruise. I am now excitedly planning our holiday to travel independently to France and England so we can truly experience these places and not just get a snapshot like we would have on a cruise. The Travel Academy gave me the knowledge and confidence to take the leap outside my comfort zone.

There is Great value in this program. I learned so much that I was not aware of or thought about. My greatest takeaway was how naïve I was about travel and safety. There were so many interesting topics and valuable information. I now feel much more comfortable that I plan to do a small trip in the New Year.

Jen is easy to listen to and she has tremendous knowledge on the art of travel. Everything covered in the program are things someone would want to know about while travelling. The technology that is available to make travel easier was a highlight of mine since I am not very good with it.

I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was happily impressed at all the little tips and tricks I learned. There were a number of things I would have not known or even thought about.

My fear of the unknown is a barrier to many things but I now know tricks that will help alleviate these concerns. With a bit of pre-planning and communication tools and apps, the possibility of independent travel is there now.
