My name is Amanda Drexler. I was born and raised in Guelph, ON and now live and work out of my home as an Independent Travel Agent in Elora, ON.
I have been married to my husband Ryan for 15 years and we have two children Keagan and Shaelin.
Our family LOVES to travel! We have what I refer to as ‘the travel bug’, and it is highly contagious! It is my goal to infect as many others as I can with this bug.
My love for travel started in high school when I had the opportunity to participate in an exchange to Germany. I experienced the thrill of adventure running through my blood. It also opened my eyes to how different North American lifestyles were to European lifestyles. I would say Europeans understand the concept of work to live over live to work far better than us. The majority of Europeans have a minimum of 6 weeks holiday and travel is high on the list of priority of what to do with that vacation time. For example when I was in Germany over Easter they get 3 weeks off school. The majority of that 3 weeks is spent traveling as a family.
In North America we seem to be regressing rather than progressing in the means of connectivity as a family. We are more connected to our devices than we are spending quality time with our family. Ask yourself, When was the last day we disconnected from devices, work and other obligations and had a family day? How about a week?
My drive to increase family travel comes from my own childhood experiences of craving time with my own family and the memories that I have of taking family vacations. It also comes from loosing family members as a young adult and learning quickly that we are not promised tomorrow.
The health benefits alone of what travel does for the human body should have no one doubting the importance of vacation time. I specifically want to speak to fellow entrepreneurs when I point out these benefits.
Studies have shown that travel lowers stress levels, increases happiness and decreases depression. It has been found that these improvements last for weeks after return from holidays.
Studies have also found that travel expands your mind and increases brain health. Travel makes us more globally and culturally aware, it increases creativity and allows for massive personal growth.
Something tells me there may be some increases productivity too upon return.

The resort checked off all the boxes and then some!! I highly recommend Amanda for ease of booking and stress free travel!! Thank you Amanda!!"
"We wanted to enjoy our honeymoon somewhere warm and tropical, but didn't know where to start looking or what to even consider in an all-inclusive resort. I heard via friends that Amanda is very well recommended, so I got in touch with her and right away knew that I was in good hands. She asked what we were looking for, what we wanted most out of the resort and destination and from there she started her research. For any future travel we will use Amanda - the care, attention to detail and follow up is what I really appreciated!"
