I’m back at AdventureSmith Explorations after some travels, now subbing in for their Content Manager while she’s on maternity leave. From social media posts (like the one above) to building new trip web pages to updating rates for the coming travel season, I’ve been busy! One of my coworkers is a hobby mixologist and his amazing craft cocktails inspired a new series on the AdventureSmith blog that I launched: Sunset Sippers, a craft cocktail paired with one of our small ship cruises. Chris essentially makes one of his drinks, and we brainstorm our ideal small ship deck and destination to sip it on!

Trip building is one of my biggest tasks as the company grows and provides custom travel services for more and more small ship cruises around the world. One of the most recent trips and ships I built, Preservation Inlet Discovery, travels in New Zealand’s Fiordland region.

Here is a picture of most of the team on a small ship cruise aboard the Tahoe Gal in our hometown. While we don’t sell trips on Lake Tahoe (no overnight accommodation allowed here), we can still benefit from some on-water experience.

Back in late May I traveled to Alaska on a familiarization trip with AdventureSmith Explorations. As content editor, I’ve worked for years with the company on developing content around this destination, so it was time for me to experience the Last Frontier myself!

My trip started with an 8-day small ship cruise on the Eastern Coves Juneau–Ketchikan itinerary aboard the 76-guest Wilderness Discoverer with 5 of my family members, and finished with 10 days on the Kenai Peninsula (Anchorage–Homer) with my boyfriend.
