I was obsessed with Italy when I was in college. I first traveled there in 1995 and fell in love with the ancient places, the gelato and the countryside. Starting a travel company was a whisper in my head even back then. The dream started to solidify all the again in 2018 when my husband and I traveled to Croatia: here is a little taste of our time there
We absolutely fell in love with the country and after a few trips there, decided to start hosting tours on our favorite island of Hvar. Unfortunately, 2020 was not the best year to start our travel dream, so those were put on hold. Finally, 2022 has renewed our hope in being able to travel the world again, and bring some of you along with us.
My continuing obsession with all things European continues; I love old things, and Europe has a lot of old things. But if I’m honest, I’m equally obsessed with the PNW; especially the Columbia River Gorge and all the beautiful things in it. Our tours will focus on those areas and hopefully bring some value to you as I share my favorite itineraries of far away places like Croatia and France + local favorites like the Columbia River Gorge.
Our first tour turned out to be an unexpected one – to New York City. We have traveled there so many times over the last few years that I decided it would be fun to bring along a group of Women and share my favorite things to do.
My first small tour will happen at the end of April. I was very grateful that it filled up in the first few days after I announced it. I’m feeling very excited to take this group of women on a fun, whirlwind trip to the big apple. We’ll be eating noodles in China Town, riding bikes in Central Park, visiting the Empire State Building at night, taking a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and enjoying a luxurious spa day. Each of my girls will get a special NYC photoshoot in the amazing neighborhood of Tribeca. Whenever I’m in NYC I feel like a bad ass city chick and I want the girls on my tour to get some of those vibes as well.
Follow me on my travel instagram page: Leah Clancy Travel where I’ve been taking my peeps along on trips to Portugal, Czechoslovakia, Croatia, Italy, Mexico and NYC over the last few years. Come along on our next International adventure in April, when we travel to France, tour Provence and spend a couple of days in Paris. We’ll be sharing our itineraries, food, hotels, airbnb’s, market tours and more.
Thank you to those that have supported my travel page over the last few years, and to those that trusted me enough to sign up on a tour that I dreamt up in my head a few months ago. I feel really privileged to have such amazing clients that have also become friends and trust me enough to go on a vacation together! XOXOX, Leah
