Kathy Hash specializes in any and all cruises. From the exotic world cruise to the history filled river cruises. She helps the young and the old navigate and understand the crazy world or travel and is always looking for the best deals out there. From adventures to the beach combers she can help you make your escape to whatever or wherever your heart desires. Kathy goes out of her way to understand her client’s needs and wants to make the perfect escape possible. There is no one size fits all vacation in her mind, and each one is personal to each client. I handle all types of travel as well and run a full service travel agency from groups (knitting, golf, church) to solo travelers. All-inclusive getaways to adventure travel I can handle it all for you.
I became a travel agent because I love to travel and have been doing that for the last 50 years. From growing up in California visiting Hawaii to exploring the deserts in Arizona.
When my husband joined the military shortly after we were married we started a lifetime of travel and it just took hold of me. I was 16 at the time so it has been quite the adventure. Wherever we lived we always tried to do as much travel and local experiences as time and money allowed. We dragged are kids through Europe, from the castles to the ocean so they could learn to enjoy the art of traveling as well. They both still like to travel to this day.
We currently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. My grandparents were from here and I have been coming to visit all my life but we decided to call it home after many others in our family settled here.
Whenever I am not working with a client I am training and exploring. There are a million or so places out there to see and experience and it’s hard to keep up with them all. I try to stay up on all the trends and places that people might want to see. I have a wall full of completed training but it is never enough as there is always more to learn. The two major ones that I have completed are River and Ocean Cruising Expert.
My suppliers are from all over the world so I may never have them all down, but I sure will try. Europe is my passion as there is just so much to see and do. I have done trips for people from the extravagant to the pack your lunch with you self-drive. So many cathedrals, castles, food and history to enjoy. Italy has to be one of my favorites. From the food to the people just hands down the best. Living in Sicily ruined me Italian food as it just never tastes quite the same.
I really loved living in Germany where there are so many things to do and experience. I especially loved Bavaria with its castles and Alps. The wine cruises for viewing the castles cannot be beat. Just so magical. There is also nothing like a German Christmas market.
I have worked in some type of customer service position all my life and just really enjoy helping people. Too few of us really take the time to experience travel and not some rushed family car trip. The experiences I have had while traveling are worth more than any material object could be. The memories keep me going and make me rich beyond belief. I look at every purchase now in regards to cruising. Such as that couch is half a cruise, do we really need it? LOL I am always thinking of where the next adventure will be! When I am not traveling or working I love to read all types of books and spend time with the family. Our lasts trip was whitewater rafting with them here in New Mexico.
