About Me

Hola! Bonjour! Akwaaba! Hello! Gutentag! Jambo! la Orana! 

I am so glad you have come across my site. This is where your journey starts! I’m Nicole, an avid traveler and adventure enthusiast located in Atlanta, GA – though originally from the northeast. I spend most of my time talking about, dreaming about, scouting out OR booking travel! Seeing the world opens our eyes, lets us grow and teaches us valuable lessons from new cultures.

I help busy millennials discover and experience the world’s hidden gems through carefully curated travel designs. My clients are dedicated, successful professionals by day, but are explorers at heart in their free time. They harbor a deep craving to get out, explore the world through immersive travel experiences but don’t have the time, experience or connections to plan an itinerary that completely bypasses the tourist traps and connects them with this earth’s hidden treasures. That’s where I come in. I bring my brilliance for helping people discover travel’s best kept secrets and combine this with my years of world travel experience and my insider network of international connections to deliver itineraries that have my clients feeling alive and invigorated. My clients get to experience the joy of escapading around the world making deep, profound connections with those they meet, indulging in adventure and luxury all at the same time and returning with memories that will live in their hearts forever. 

I hope you’ll grab 15 minutes with me to discuss your travel goals, I’d love to help. If you’re ready to pack your bags and take-off, complete this form and I’ll get started planning ASAP so we can get you on the next flight.

The world is your oyster!


Why should I book through a travel advisor?

Traveling should be fun and stress-free, period. For you to fully embrace the destinations and emerge yourself in the culture, we will handle all the details, from big to small to ensure you are covered every step of the way. With hassle free trips and hours saved scouring the internet, it pays dividends to book through a travel advisor. We’ll be there for you before, during and after your trip to make sure anything that pops up is quickly rectified for you.

Will I pay more if I book through you?

No. Hotels, airlines, tours etc. pay advisors a commission of bookings, they do not charge us more! In fact, we get some better deals and for the same price we’ll get you your well deserved upgrades and perks. It’s a win-win-win across the board. While I do charge different ranges of design fees for the hours I pour into planning your trip, you are not paying any more for the actual travel (hotels, flights, excursions, tours).

I already know where I want to go, does it still make sense to use Trips by Nic?

Yes! You can book yourself through my Virtuoso link or reach out and we are happy to handle the actual bookings. Complimentary if you know where you want to stay. Perks for you differ at each property but can include potential upgrades, breakfast credits, welcome drinks, early check-in/late check-out etc. So it doesn’t cost you a thing but can have some great perks and money-savers upon your arrival!

Can I see some sample trips? I need some inspo!

From safaris in Africa to trekking in South America, we’ve done it all and can help you do it too. See for some samples. You can also always follow along on Instagram if you need some serious inspiration of where to head next! Warning: this might cause you to book a trip 🙂

What is Virtuoso, anyway?

Virtuoso is a network of the best hotels, cruise lines and adventures in the world. Through our partnership with Virtuoso, we ensure you are treated like a VIP when you book with us.
