“The world is a great book, of which they that never stir from home read only a page.” – St Augustine of Hippo
Hi! I’m Kristina (or Kristin – you can call me either) and I’m the owner of Kristina D Travel.
I think my love of travel started in Mr. Grimm’s 6th-grade history and geography class. I mean, we didn’t travel anywhere, not physically at least. But, Mr. Grimm’s lessons about Europe really ignited something in me. For project research, my mom would take me to the local brick & mortar travel agencies where I’d collect brochures and read about all the interesting and historic sites. Ever since then, I’ve loved going to visit all the places I’ve read about or seen on the screen.
In college, I worked at Walt Disney World. I met people from all over the world and enjoyed chatting with them about their home. In my career, I enjoyed researching and planning. I’d come home in the evenings and use those same skills to plan my travel. Spreadsheets organizing hotels and flights, maps with planned routes, detailed packing lists… Then, it struck me, why not use my awesome researching and planning skills to help others!
What are my personal favorite places to visit? So far, Hawaii and Ireland hold special places in my traveling heart. Apparently, I’m into green islands!
