Advice on how to get the most out of your travels!

What is Tripimize?

While relaxing on my honeymoon and feeling pleased with the amazing vacation I planned for myself and my new husband, It dawned on me that if I’m spending this much time researching and planning for every trip I take, wouldn’t it be amazing if others could benefit from that effort as well?

Tripimize is my attempt to share my experiences with you. It is split into four sections: Trip Reports, Research, Reviews and Rundown.

Trip Reports  is my growing collection of reports on trips I have taken or trips I’ve helped plan for others.

Research includes interesting travel-related questions that I decided to take a crack at answering.

Reviews are where I review hotels and wineries using consistent, objective criteria.

Rundown includes quick tips and ratings

Who am I?


My name is Ariel. I love to travel, and I love to plan, everything.

In some ways you could say I’m a professional traveler; I studied abroad in Europe and Asia, worked for several years as a market research consultant for the resort industry and then received an MBA with a concentration in international business and real estate. Currently, I work in finance for the transportation industry.
