Welcome to Happily Away! My name is Emilie. I'm a travel advisor, writer and photographer. My husband and I travel together frequently, while keeping our full time jobs. We have been to 21 countries and over 100 cities in the last 10 years and our wanderlust grows with each trip we take.
While I have owned a blog for years, my true passion lies in travel planning. I am about as thorough as it gets, leaving no stone unturned to ensure you get the most out of your time away. My goal is to give you a customized trip with all your bases covered so that your only job is to enjoy and take it all in.
There is so much more to experience in this world.
Let's get you started!
A personal travel planner does all the research and planning of the trip for you. I'll build a trip based on your personal preferences, family composition and special needs.
Accommodation, attractions, transportation, restaurants, and maps, are all provided. You will get a detailed file that includes all the information according to day and time. All that you need to do is sign-off and pack.
Anyone can book a hotel, but putting together a vacation takes time. The idea is to maximize your time and money instead of wasting it on an attraction you didn't know was closed or a hotel that looks beautiful only in pictures.
That's it. Just enjoy your trip. I've taken care of all the details, accessible right on your phone.
The Atacama Desert in northern Chile is one of the most unique places I've ever traveled to. Being the highest and driest desert in the world, it holds many natural wonders. From the vast salt flats, to the Valley of the Moon, to some of the best stargazing in the world, you are sure to be amazed and mesmerized by this special, unworldly, place.
This one is for the adventurous spirits. If you are eager to get up early for tours and will power through the desert heat and altitude, you will be rewarded with experiences you will remember for a lifetime.
