"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."
- Saint Augustine
Have you ever been watching a movie and immediately recognized the location? I mean the exact table at the restaurant in Rome? Or the exact suite in the hotel outside of London? To know what is just beyond the frame; down the street; around the corner. It is a powerful feeling!
The insight that you gain from traveling is priceless. When you see first-hand how people live, what they eat, what surrounds them, you can understand them better. Travel can also surprise you with things you have never had occasion to ponder - OF COURSE the Big Dipper can't be seen in Australia. But the moon can be. Hmmm.
I believe people travel to add to the repository of joyful experiences that they will carry in their memories throughout their lives. Travel facilitates the creation of shared memories of a particular place, time and experience with family and friends - memories that will be revisited over a lifetime. As the saying goes, “Travel is the only thing you can buy that will make you richer.”
Beyond the Frame Travels partners with you to make the big milestone trips happen, and to help you experience the insight, power and joy that travel brings to life.

"Mary Pat took away all of my worries about traveling abroad with my son. Not only did she organize and book the airlines, she was also fully invested in finding us the ideal place to stay in London. It was a fantastic trip - and I owe it all to Mary Pat and her wonderful and insightful guidance and expertise."
