About Us

Hi, I'm Tina.

World explorer embracing my inner librarian. Believer in the power of story. Always up for adventure.

It has been said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.” From my earliest memories, I’ve been determined to read every page.

Novel Vacations was created from the powerful brew of two great passions; books and travel. I can never get enough of either, and what I’ve come to discover is that I am not alone.

There are a million stories being written every day, and it’s both my honor and incredible joy to help you write a memory-making chapter; wherever it may take you.
