Debbie

Owner & Founder - Today's Woman Traveller

My passion for travel began over 38 years ago apprenticing in a travel agency. While organizing custom travel arrangements for missionaries all over the world, I gained valuable international knowledge, experience and expertise that would later allow me to run my own travel agency and build my own custom tours and individual travel programs.

Before turning to my love of travel in 2002, I had worked in several management positions. Because of this previous experience, I'm comfortable handling all facets and details of the travel business from corporate travel to designing custom travel for individuals and groups.

Steve WowkTravelling is part of who I am as a person. As a child, my family took annual road trips to Florida. In high school, my international travelling began when I participated in an exchange program in France.

My passion for travel was sparked when I landed a job teaching English in Paris after studying French Language and Literature at Western University in London, Ontario. A whole year to discover in my free time the tiny hidden cultural and gastronomical gems of Paris, the surrounding countryside and nearby European countries! What a thrill to

I have a long and serious passion for travel. In my childhood, my 3 siblings, Mom, Dad and I all piled into the car for our annual summer jaunts to various North American destinations. Fond memories exist still to this day and certainly provided the impetus to expand my travel horizons. An exhilarating high school trip to Spain really got the ball rolling, and I graduated from a 3-year tourism program at Centennial College.

JudiInBudapestI’m a passionate traveller and have travelled extensively around the world, both in groups and on my own.

I was born in Budapest, Hungary and immigrated to Canada in the late 1960’s.

Throughout my career and various management positions, I've learned the joys of guiding, organizing and communicating with people.

Being highly adventurous, I delight in uncovering hidden, lesser-known places and as a tour guide, look forward to sharing these places and other unique experiences with the group.

Pam TooleyFor 25+ years I have been fortunate to work in various aspects of travel. I still enjoy the thrill of helping passengers reserve tours that best suit their needs and expectations. Tours that take them to places they’ve only dreamed of.

My first experience in Hospitality was as a teen working at my parents’ tourist lodge. At the age of 17, I took my first international flight (on Wardair, no less) and from there my love for travel was set.

Joanne KingstonMy intrigue to travel began at 19 years old when I was fortunate to meet two girls my age from Scotland visiting one of my neighbours. Since I was their age, I was asked to show them around on a tour of Eastern Ontario. One year later, I toured Scotland for a month with these girls and I was bitten by the "Travel Bug".

Cecelia2A day is a very happy day when I can spend it exploring new corners of wherever I am,
my hometown or a place I am visiting. It is even better if there are people to share it
with!


Travelling through new landscapes, scampering over rocks and creeks, learning and exploring new cultures energizes me to my core! The result is that I have travelled most of North America, along with much of Central and South America, the Caribbean, the UK and Western Europe.

Sharman2It all started with my older sister who was an airline hostess. She took me with her on trips when I was out of school. So from a very early age, I learned to love airports - yes…I love airports, along with flying and foreign food! I have wonderful memories of exploring Denmark, Holland, Sweden, and Germany with her. All before I was 12 years old!

I also love the Arts - especially theatre and writing. I have been blessed with being able to meld all that I love in life into a career.

Aline Barlow150pxI have been in the travel and tourism business all my life but it is my husband, Jeff Barlow, who introduced me to the escorted-travel side of this industry.

I have accompanied painters in Thailand, photographers in Germany, and taken several journeys in England and France.

I came to Canada from my native Prague in 1969. My family settled in Kingston where I was employed by Queen's University as a research assistant at the Geochemistry Department. As well as my work at Queen's, I took an opportunity when in 1989 the Czech Republic opened its border to visitors to escort various small groups there.

Jean lawson300pxI love spending time outdoors camping, hiking and exploring new landscapes and architectures.  I have been lucky enough to have travelled extensively throughout Canada and the United States from the Arctic to California and hiked the Highlands recently in Scotland.
