ABOUT ME

Meet Marija Bumgarner, Your Luxury Adventure Travel Expert

 

It was going to be a trip of a lifetime… 

 

Sunlight shining into the water perfectly lighting up the large vibrant coral heads, eels peeking through, clownfish bobbing in and out of swirling tentacles, sea turtles and rays gliding by! After the dive, a refreshing platter of fruit is awaiting us on board as we embark onto the next dive site. 

 

That was the experience I envisioned when I visited the Great Barrier Reef… But that is not what I got. 

Instead of pristine, untouched coral reefs, thrilling wildlife sightings and extraordinary service, we visited tourist-heavy areas lacking wildlife and poorly trained staff. 

 

I spent years flipping through National Geographic imagining this moment. I spent 15 hours in the air, valuable time and money. It was memorable, but not the kind of memorable I was looking for. 

 

The Great Barrier Reef is undoubtedly a spectacular site and my experience should have and could have been beyond extraordinary… had it been expertly planned.

 

At that moment, I realized that I am not the only one who has ever been this disappointed with a vacation. No vacation should ever be anything less than extraordinary. 

 

That is why I decided to launch Extraordinary Moments Travel. 

 

To help time-starved professionals like yourself relax, recharge and reconnect through travel. 

Because you want extraordinary moments, not mediocre experiences. 

 

My promise to you? 

 

Extraordinary moments expertly crafted the way you envision them! 

 

I use my extensive personal travel experiences and world-wide industry partnerships to meticulously plan your one-of-a-kind trip. I diligently choose suppliers that will deliver an extraordinary experience and also take responsible measures to preserve the world’s amazing places, give back to communities, and support the protection of cultural and natural heritage. I take care of every detail so you don’t have to! The result? You get time to disconnect from your daily demands and reconnect with your loved ones. You get moments to explore and discover, bond and indulge. 

 

Ready to dive the Great Barrier Reef, hike Machu Picchu or sail the Adriatic the way it should be done? The way you envision it?
