Your Adventure Consult awaits…

You’ve dreamed it. Now is the time to do it! I can tell you from personal experience that the moments in my life I hold most dear are those I’ve had while travelling. That’s because travel invigorates and inspires like nothing else can. It has made me a better mother to my children, partner to my husband, a better daughter, friend, and colleague.

Your first step is deciding: Am I worth it? (Hint: You absofrigginglutely are!) Do your friends and family deserve a more engaged you? (Hint: abso-yes to that, too!)

The next step is deciding: where in this wide, wild world do you need to go?

Sam Plavins is Your ABH! Personal Adventure Consultant

I can help you find the right road for you as your Anywhere But Here! (ABH!) Personal Adventure Consultant. I’ve travelled many roads in my life. Some hard, some easy. Walking adventures, relaxation adventures, urban adventures and back-country trails. Luxury glamping in a forest glen, guest house on the ocean, hotel in the shopping district, a bivvy on the side of a mountain. Whatever it is you see when you close your eyes at night, I can help you find it in this world.

We start with an easy questionnaire to help me understand what kind of Adventure Gal you are. Then, we discuss more in-depth during a 30-minute call. Based on what we discover, I’ll give you at least two different adventure options through trusted partners. PLUS, I’ll walk you through the pre-trip process: how to prepare, what to think about if you’re a woman travelling solo, what to bring (and what not to bring), and how to calm those jittery nerves. Don’t worry, we all get a case of nerves before a life-changing adventure!

Adventure is therapy. Let me help you find the therapy that will soothe your soul.

Your time is at a premium — let me do the heavy lifting!

Have you ever noticed that travel takes you on an inner journey, too? Adventure is therapy. The trick is to find the right prescription for you.

My own adventure resume might inspire you to build your own. I have specific expertise in organizing:

  • Treks to Machu Picchu (ask me why I prefer the Lares Trail over the Inca Trail!)
  • Hiking in Nepal (Annapurna Circuit, Poon Hill)
  • The Camino Frances in Spain (all 800 kilometres/500 miles)
  • The Atlas Mountains in Morocco (walked 500 kilometres/300 miles)
  • The Jordan Trail in Jordan
  • West Highland Way in Scotland (thinking of doing the Great Glen Way instead? Let’s talk!)
  • The Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
  • Climbing volcanoes in Ecuador, Bolivia, Guatemala
  • Kilimanjaro, Tanzania (Lemosho Route)
  • Long-distance pilgrimages (Japan, Turkey, Wales, Italy)

Plus, I’ve talked to many other travellers along the way about other adventures out there. If I don’t have the answer immediately, I know who to talk to.

Your adventure is out there waiting. Let’s go find it! Register for the ABH! Travel Consult below.
