Ann Frischmann

Ann's passion for travel and love of discovering new destinations is the perfect combination when planning your next trip. 


From an early age, Ann had a love for travel - from the first time she stepped foot on a plane, she knew she was hooked. This loved continued through the years and she even wrote a book report on being a travel agent in 7th grade including an interview with actual travel agents. ​Her mother worked part-time as an outside agent where Ann would pour through the latest travel books/catalogs instead of reading your typical teen magazines.​

Ann specializes in bucket list vacations to the South Pacific including Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti and Fiji and has visited these destinations multiple times. She is a certified specialist for each and will help you design the most memorable vacation experience for you and your family.

Ann currently lives in Victoria, MN with her husband Rob and her 11 year old son Jack who already has several stamps in his passport!

Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Tahiti, Mexico, Canada, Bahamas, USVI, BVI, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, Great Britain, Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal in addition to many parts of the US including Hawaii and Alaska.
Ann has worked in the travel & entertainment industry for over 15 years including time spent as an event planner, travel director and most recently working with tourism boards around the world.
I have too many to name! But in every destination I go, I personally like to go off the beaten path and discover something new that many tourists won't see or experience.
