Our Story

Let Us Make Your Travel Experience Easier!

Sail and Sand Travel was created out of a joy for helping others with their travel plans... something we were doing often for free.  It all began with a love for the Mouse.  Yes, THAT Mouse - Mickey Mouse. 

Having visited the Disney parks in the double digits and being former Florida residents we have a love Disney destinations.  I've helped friends plan their trips to Disneyland and Disney World.  When we lived in Europe then friends wanted to know about the travel options abroad so I helped them with this too, and it eventually grew into a business.  

The love of travel began for Judy having having completed a travel industry course upon high school graduation (many moons ago).  This was when the airlines were paying commission on tickets.  Gulp!  

Kim is a former client of Sail and Sand Travel who loved being in control of her itinerary, and although she valued the assistance of a travel planner she found it fun to create a great trip.  One such trip was to Ireland when she traced her husband's heritage and visited all the sites.  

Kim and I have been friends for many years.  We attended the same church, home-schooled our children until it was time for a change of season (now full fledged adults), both of us have a big love for books, enjoy a great movie, and are just a bit spicy.  Our birthdays are even one month apart.   

Although it's currently only the two of us (we kind of like it that way), we have a full team of support behind us with our host agency of Cruises & Tours Unlimited (over 5,000 agents) and our consortium with the Travel Leaders Network, which has Signature travel, The 500 Club, Distinctive Voyages, American Express card pay with points and many more specialty programs at our reach.  

As you can see, we aren't alone and you don't have to go it alone either.  Get to know us and let us plan a great trip when you need a break or a little adventure.   Read more about us below.

"I love the travel bubble and to be taken care of every step of the way.  As an Air Force wife married to an adventure seeking husband our family has been blessed to travel to Argentina, Italy, Germany, England, China, France, Poland, the Caribbean, and around the good ole USA.  A few of my most favorite vacations are visiting Italy via guided tour, sailing the Disney ships, and enjoying a high quality all-inclusive resort. ”

Wanderlust spirit.  Former educator.  Loving life.  

"As a Florida kid, I traveled to Disney World at least twice a year for most of my 20 yrs.  Epcot opened my mind to a world of exciting travel destinations, and as an adult I have visited several European countries, including France, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Ireland.  With my son living in Alaska, I am becoming quite the Alaska expert and am hoping to join the 40-Below Club at some point.  I've also worked in-depth with student travel groups visiting the US from Europe. One of my favorite trips was traveling Route 66 with my sister.
