I believe time spent with the people you love is more valuable than any “thing” you can buy.
My name is Courtney, aka Go Courtney Go, and I help busy families plan amazing vacations. I’m a mom, wife, and a lady who is passionate about seeing the world.
Before I started my dream job as Chief Travel Planner at Don’t Forget The Kids I worked for more than a decade in some of the highest levels of politics and corporate research. Now I get to use my research skills to create custom travel itineraries for you. (Seriously, how did I get so lucky?)
My Manifesto (Who’s Joining Me?)
- I am passionate about family, friends, and travel.
- I believe travel teaches children (and adults!) in a way that can’t be found in a classroom, book, or iPad. It goes beyond the basic subjects like geography and history and shows children that the world is more than their world and that different doesn’t have to mean bad, scary, or wrong.
- I want to live in a world where everyone is curious and supports and learns from one another.
- In a world where children would rather be outside than glued to a device and are happy to try all different types of food.
- I want to live in a world where Sundays are for brunch and it is okay to dance and sing along to the music at the grocery store. Where it is perfectly acceptable to be dressed up, hair fixed, and lipstick on one day and picking up your kids while still wearing your pajamas the next.
- I know and want you to know, that anyone can travel. Vacations don’t have to be expensive. My ideal getaway may not be yours and that is okay.
- Things will go wrong, but sometimes those make the best memories.
- Travel forces you to try new things and adapt.
- Learning about differences helps us find common ground.
- I know that sometimes the TV is a babysitter, I don’t always have my stuff together, I’m not a perfect parent, and that margaritas are my friend.
- Most importantly I know that travel opens the door to a lifetime of curiosity, courage, learning, and the ability to see things from a different point of view. I want that for my family and I want it for yours.
