Sarah Kraemer -Founder/Travel Expert

Sarah Kraemer loves a good map.   As a child, she and her dad would spend hours with unfurled maps on the dining room table, plotting adventures on the highways across New Mexico and then Texas.  She still begins each journey memorizing the map, and imagining the adventures to come.  As a travel advisor, Sarah leverages her training as a journalist at CNN to develop sources and seek information about a locale.  Sarah loves to fill an itinerary with active adventures, incorporating the great outdoors into even a city destination.  She believes the human connections made along the way are the true souvenirs of travel.
