About Our Travel Advisor Cyndi

Hi, I’m Cyndi, your Trusted Travel Advisor! It is a pleasure having you visit Adventures by Cyndi. The idea of starting a travel agency took time. I had dreamed about it for years. With no real idea what it took to create an agency, it just got pushed to the back of my mind. Like always, life has a funny way of matching you with the right people when the time is right. One night at my daughter’s volleyball game, a conversation with a mom about her travel agent bag changed my life. In September 2019, Adventures by Cyndi became a reality.

My Travel Experience

About How my travels began

As a child, my family would take several road trips every year to either visit family or go on vacation with them. Some of my best memories come from those trips. I have traveled from coast to coast several times, visiting new destinations each time. The newest state added to my list was Alaska. I aim to visit all 50 states by the time I turn 50. I am only missing six states.

The best part of traveling within the United States is the convenience of last-minute trips. Each state we visited had something for everyone to enjoy. We visited national and state parks, historic landmarks, fantastic beaches, and cities. Learning US history was much more enjoyable when I could relate it to places we had visited.

Expanding My Travel Across Borders

Canada was the first foreign country I visited when my family took a road trip from Indiana to Niagara Falls. At the time, passports were not required, and most customs agents asked a few questions and did a brief vehicle inspection. However, as a 10-year-old, I was still nervous. Since then, I have visited Canada, from Ontario to Vancouver, B.C. Every experience makes me want to revisit Canada.

Mexico was the second country I visited, and it did not disappoint. My favorite adventure in Mexico was exploring Chichen Itza, where I learned about the culture and lives of the Mayans. Climbing to the top of El Castelo gave me a first-hand appreciation of just how small in stature the Mayan people were. Going up was easy; however, getting down was a different story. I could finally descend while sitting on my bottom and scooting down step by step.

My travels are far from over, and I can’t wait to share the knowledge and tips I have gained professionally and personally along the way. My commitment to you comes from my love of travel and experiencing new adventures.

I believe that travel is the only thing that can be purchased that makes us richer. The experiences, memories, and new friends we make while traveling are priceless.

I look forward to planning your vision of the perfect trip.

“Great experience working with Cynthia. She was always available to answer our questions. Even during evenings and weekends! She was very prompt when booking our trip and always kept our needs the priority for the best trip ever!”

“Cindy was wonderful in helping with organizing our family trip. Everything was great! The flights went smoothly! Cindy went above and beyond and checked a few times with the hotel to ensure we had adjoining rooms. She sent us several resources for things to do as we planned. She even checked every step to ensure we didn’t need anything additional. The only thing that was missing on this trip was to stay for a few more days 😉 So thank you again from my family and me.”
