About Kirsty Elstad

Since I was a kid I looked forward to family vacations or traveling with my dad for his sport's competitions. I loved going anywhere and everywhere.

In college I continued this love by earning my B.A. in International Studies and a B.A. in Spanish Culture and Civilization. During college I spent a winter interim trekking and studying in Costa Rica. After college I got a chance to work in a travel agency in Chaska, MN. Marriage, kids and long time of stay-at-home being in a military marriage brought us living in several locations around the U.S. We now currently reside in the Washington DC metro.

I am finally back at my love of travel and ready to serve customers in need. I would love to open a new world of possibilities for those ready to explore.

My Travel Adventures

Extensive travel in the Midwest: Wisconsin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan and Kansas. Lived in and well-versed in Texas and Virginia. I have traveled to the California coast line and the Florida west coast.

Outside of the U.S. include Playa del Carmen, Mexico and throughout all of Costa Rica.

My favorite way to travel is by train. I love the Northern Lights and anywhere nordic where I can see them. I have a fondness for the National Parks and hope to visit them all!
