And when you’re not whisking yourself away to some far-off destination, you’re sharing your adventures with your friends.
Maybe you even help them plan their future trip?
You’re a wealth of knowledge when it comes to some destinations. You’re not afraid to make personalized recommendations and you are familiar with booking trips. Heck, you’ve done it a few times before…right?
