Soon, however, she took a career shift and started working on cruise ships, hosting travel agents and their travel groups while working as a front desk manager and German interpreter. The greatest perk of working on a cruise ship is the abundance of time off, which Olivia used to continue her travel pursuits. It was while climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro on a trip to Tanzania in 2013 that Olivia met Daniel, who was her porter. The pair hit it off and soon married. In order to start a family, Olivia left the cruise ship life and started working in 5-star resorts as a banquet and front desk manager. However, once her daughter was born, Olivia needed more regular working hours and so returned to her career as an event planner at the University of Arizona.
Yet, Olivia’s passion for travel never stopped touring around the back of her mind! So now, she wants to encourage families to travel all over the world and not ‘play it safe’ with all-inclusive resorts or adventure lands. She believes families and their children should discover a diversity of cultures, being inspired to one day be world leaders that care about the environment, the wildlife, and the future of the planet. Olivia and her team’s custom itineraries are the results of studying the countries, understanding the specialities, and finding a way to include the nation’s unique features into your travel plans.
Pimbi Adventures is all about meeting new entrepreneurs, local shop owners, scientists, tour operators, chefs, and all walks of life who are eager to show off their passion to her clients! Beyond travel, Olivia’s family is very motivated to protect our environment and minimize the footprint that is left behind when traveling. Ideally, we wouldn’t leave a footprint but rather, leave a positive mark on all of the places we are lucky enough to visit!
