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 6 year old son Jack who already has several stamps in his passport!
