Hi! I’m Carmen.
I am a small town Iowa farm girl who moved to Chicago after college graduation. I planned and booked my first trip abroad after finishing grad school in 2011.
On that first trip, I traveled solo and visited eight European countries in a little over two weeks. I came home with great memories, lots of photos and the travel bug. I was officially hooked!
50 U.S. states, 20+ countries and 23 major league ballparks later, my desire to travel and explore the world is stronger than ever.
In 2021, I decided to take my passion for planning travel a step further by becoming a certified Travel Advisor. My goal with Adventure Awaits Travel is to help women travel the world. I want to take the stress out of travel planning, maximize your time off and make sure you have the best trip ever! To get started, click here.
When I am not on the road or in the friendly skies, I am at home with my dog, Stella, meeting friends for brunch or inside the friendly confines of Wrigley Field cheering on the Chicago Cubs.
