Meet YOUR Vacation designers
Dan and Terie met in 1987, on a Mardi Gras float while Terie was stationed in New Orleans with the United States Navy. We were married 107 days later! From the beginning, we shared a passion for traveling. Once our four children were on their own, we immediately hit the road (and the seven seas!). We love to travel!
T & D Travel Partners was born from that passion. We love having new adventures, exploring new places, meeting new people, and making new memories. From that passion came a love of helping others do the same. Our goal is to inspire others to travel and create new memories.
We have partnered with the most respected and well-known travel suppliers in our industry to bring you amazing Ocean and River cruises, Faith-Based Travel suppliers, All-Inclusive resort options, and our personalized group travel programs.
We are a veteran owned company!
I'm a Navy brat who followed my dad's footsteps and served 30 years in the US Navy as a PhotoJournalist. I developed a hunger to see more of the world, as a result of moving around so much. My bucket list is a living, growing thing! The more I travel, the more I want to see! I have traveled throughout Europe, the South Pacific, Europe and the Middle East. I'm looking forward to exploring Alaska in June 2023, and Hawaii in January 2024. Japan, Asia, and Australia are also on my bucket list. I'm a bit of an adrenaline junky, despite being in my 70's! But I also love to learn about the history, art, and cuisine of the countries I visit. One of my dreams is to take a group of veterans to Normandy Beach. I want to inspire others to travel and create amazing memories!
I started my travel career with trips to the Caribbean and Mexico when I was a teenager, exploring the islands, snorkeling, and SCUBA diving. I was hooked on travel. After a short (4 years) time with the USAF, I returned to traveling. I drove to Alaska through the ALCAN highway, and worked for one of the support companies building the Alaskan pipeline. But, deciding I needed a warmer climate, I started a company as a guide and SCUBA instructor, spending months each summer in the Florida keys or one of the 700 Bahamian islands. After Terie and I were married, we spent the next 20 years following the Navy's whim in Louisiana, California, Arizona, and Washington D. C. Our family loved visiting attractions in each of our new locations. Finally, after Terie was sent back to Florida and retired, we began our true calling as Travel Advisors, Memory Makers, and Escape Experts Extraordinaire. My motto is “Come with us, we’ve been there!”
