HI! I am the owner of Adventures by Cyndi Travel Agency. I have loved traveling ever since I was little and enjoy sharing what I have learned with others. My "second job" is as a taxi driver for my teenage daughter and my dad. Honestly, I'm not sure which keeps me busier. Either way, I wouldn't change it for the world.
