You did it.
You finally decided to leap head-first into exploring the world.
And now you have an epic trip to plan out, reservations to make, research to do, and about a thousand other things.
Okay, a thousand things may be a bit of a stretch.
Don't fret. We'll handle it.
Pssssst, do any of these sound familiar...?
- What the...where do I even...start?!
- I wonder what there is to do in this place?
- How the bloody hell am I supposed to get from here to there?
- I wonder if I should go to that town?
- Should I get a rental car?
- How do the train systems work here?
- Ohhhhh food, I bet there's some amazing restaurants there I'd love to try!
- What should I pack? Will it be hot or cold when I go?
- Oy vey, where should I stay in town? Where are the cool neighborhoods?!
So, take a deep breath -- 'cause we gotcha.
We've helped adventurers get out into the world, planning every aspect of their journey. Many of them started right where you are today, asking the same questions of where to go, what to do, and how to get around. So embrace those feelings of overwhelm and not enough time and then take a deep breath -- because we're here to sort out all the details.
This could be you instead.

- Confident that you're going to see & do all the things you want
- Knowledgeable about how to get around in each location
- Have all your reservations made & pre-arranged, so all you have to do is show up
- Know that you'll be having unique experiences, staying in cute & cozy accommodations, and be taken care of

- Have your time back in your regular life, because you don't have to do any of this leg work
- Confident that your trip is everything you've ever wanted it to be!

Who are we and why should you let us handle your trip?
Well friend, we used to be you. We took our first trip out in the world together and we made mistakes. We lost count of the trains and busses we missed. We booked accommodations that we didn't make it to, because we didn't know where we would be on what dates.
But, we discovered our love for exploring the world, so we wouldn't trade it for anything. Since then, we have taken more trips and perfected creating itineraries. In fact, we have both worked at travel agencies, doing just that -- planning, plotting, and creating itineraries unique to each person we worked with.
But, we much prefer working for ourselves. So here we are, The Rambling Gals ready to help you get to your next adventure with less stress and more seeing, doing, tasting, and experiencing.
