Founder, Owner & Chief Memory Maker
My love for travel & culture came from my roots!
My parents traveled to New York from their native country, the island of Trinidad & Tobago, in 1967. They still reside in New York to this day. My mom & dad traveled frequently before my brother and I came on the scene.. So naturally the travel party train did not stop!!
My brother & I were now part of the passengers list.
My Dad worked for Trans World Airlines, commonly known as TWA for 25 years. One of my fondest memories of my travel childhood is my Dad bringing home the new TWA Getaway Vacations catalog & him handing it to my mom.
My mom would look through the catalog and pick about three destinations, bookmark them and then show my brother & I what she had chosen. Then my brother & I would choose where we wanted to go!!!! Super exciting!!!!
Now, before we could talk we were no strangers to planes & passports, it just became more of a reality when our opinion was taken in consideration.
Well as the years went by: the school years, college years, and moving away from home, I was & still am a very active traveller. I traveled by myself, with friends & family. My hubby now travels with me and I love that he enjoys it. I have been very fortunate & blessed to have traveled a lot of this world, enjoying and experiencing different cultures. There is still so much more to see! He just has some catching up to do!
Circa 2008, YDTTWT came into existence. Truly a labor of love..my ode to travel, urging all to create memories and just pack your bag.
It was a simple life lesson I learned growing up in that Trini household in NY. I learned how creating memories, taking plenty pictures to tell your story and knowing there is always another opportunity to just pack your bag is just around the corner.
I truly thank God for placing this desire for travel in my spirit and having my parents cultivate it to the point where my entrepreneurial spirit transformed it into a company.
