Advisor - Jen Barnes


I am passionate about helping families with teens connect through travel and outdoor adventures. Pair that with a luxury hotel and it's a win for all!

My travel style

With three teenagers of my own, I have found the magical balances between adventure and relaxation while traveling. I like to find the non-touristy/private experiences when traveling to a well-known destination. My preferred travel day includes outdoor activities like hiking, SUP, kayaking or biking but I also enjoy a good art museum in the mix. The best end to a travel day is a drop dead gorgeous sunset, a refined meal with wine and a stunning hotel to lay my head. I believe travel is the great family connector. Families create memories that last a lifetime and leave a legacy when they adventure together. It's my pleasure to help families curate those experiences!

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Sailing around the Greek Cyclades Islands for seven days.

  • Road-tripping from Portland to Seattle, stopping at National Parks in-between.

  • Hiking in the late summer in Vail, Colorado. 

  • Vacation-ing in Guatemala.

Dreaming of:

  • Northern Italy – Dolomites and Lake Como. 

  • Namibia. 

  • Road trip through Utah for the National Parks. 

  • Mother daughter getaway to San Diego.

One thing I can't travel without...

Sleeping mask and ear plugs.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I was handed a baby through a window on the train from Machu Picchu to Cusco. 

  2. My son had to have his tonsils removed while we were traveling in Greece. 

  3. My husband and I met while working one summer at Yellowstone National Park.
