About Cowell Travel

About Michelle Cowell
Memories and experiences are what my family loves to reminisce about when we are together. As a curious person, I have always looked for adventure. From childhood camping trips in Baja California and the American West, to a degree in Anthropology and trips to far-flung corners of the world, travel provides so much to enjoy, recall and share with friends and family. I have guided whitewater rafting trips, taught yoga, owned a business, worked in a hotel, on a boat, and in a corporate office. All of this has led me to the travel industry!

My family and I, even our dog, lived in New Zealand for two years. We enjoyed new foods, especially “Pavlova”, learned to drive on the other side of the road, took up new sports like water polo and surf life-saving, and learned to appreciate well-made coffee. Flat Whites are a new personal favorite. We explored beautiful places all around New Zealand and, most importantly, made life-long friends. Living abroad gives perspective, teaches patience, and exercises resourcefulness; all qualities a Travel Advisor uses daily.

I tramp a perpetual journey.
~Walt Whitman, Song of Myself
