Back in April I urged all of you to join the many devotees of Hip Travel Mama and get the inside scoop on the luxury travel world. Anne Taylor Hartzell is the hip founder and known for her simple tips & insider knowledge on travel destinations both near and far. I follow her blog religiously. Well, as I predicted, she is on the rise with a recent feature on The Today’s Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda.
“Anne Taylor Hartzel of HipTravelMama is quickly becoming the new name of travel for families so take her advice and get to planning this Summer’s luxury vacation!” -me
She was at it again with pre-season tips on travel and shopping to give you a jump-start on the coming months’ insanity. Hip Travel Mama is just that as she answers the influx of questions from the high energy hostesses and get your passports ready, people! She highlights Canada as a shopping destination for the season. She also gives a nod to Voodoo Doughnuts of Portland, OR so it never hurts to incorporate food destinations within your travel plans.
Now The Today Show clip is Pacific Northwest centric but she does kind of get me in the mood for all that is to come with the traveling, gifts, and shopping. It is very smart to have a travel "go to guide" and it looks like the world agrees. Congrats, Mama!
