Travel Authentically

We are a cultural travel specialist and personal assistance business providing customized research on international destinations and travel assistance. Every handcrafted itinerary, packing list, and cultural insights training includes a culturally specific activity, attraction, or excursion to travel authentically for an optimal experience as a foreigner abroad.

If you answer yes to any of the questions below, you are just who we are skilled at serving. So, are you:

  • Traveling for work with some time to explore but don't have time to research attractions at your location? 

  • Living vicariously through social media and YouTube because the idea of international travel is overwhelming?

  • Burned out on decision-making while planning your travel?

  • Panicking because your travel plans fell through and you leave soon?

  • Retired or on sabbatical and want to stay in one place for awhile to really live in the culture?

"Janese was so helpful and reassuring as my husband and I planned our recent trip to Spain.

Not only was she able to answer any question I had, but she was often thinking ahead, providing us information we hadn't thought to ask.


As we boarded the plane for our first leg of the journey, I felt confident that everything was going to go smoothly and we would have a trip of a lifetime, which we did.


Working with Janese made everything easier and provided a level of comfort we wouldn't have had on our own."  - HEATHER, MONTANA

About Janese


My journey as a foreigner began when was I was 23. Since then I've lived overseas for over 5 years and in three different countries. I have had the privilege of working with or getting to know  people from over 60 countries. I have a gift for organization, details, and logistics which I use to support people as they make their dreams reality. I intentionally seek out people who have lived a different experience than I have as I believe that everyone is a foreigner to one another; and that requires curiosity - not judgment - because we all have something to learn from one another.

I hold a MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I'm a certified Leadership Coach from an International Coaching Federation organization. I also am a certified Change Management practitioner from Prosci. These are some of the tools I use to help people understand themselves better and become more aware of what they need to be successful.

Thank you for choosing Travelon!
