Patti MannTitle: (905) 630-4483
Agency: Patti Mann
My passion for travel started at an early age. I was always fascinated by faraway places, people and cultures. I had the opportunity to satisfy some of those craving by working for USAir and Air New Zealand for over 18 years. Staying home to raise my children after “retirement” from the Airlines didn’t stop my passion for travel, it just changed direction to Disney!
I’ve been to Walt Disney World about 50 times and chances are I’ve stayed there, ate there and experienced a lot of the magic with toddlers, young children, teens and even experiencing the annual Epcot Food & Wine Festival with my now adult children!
I’m thrilled to start this new chapter as The Travel Agent Next Door, planning your worldwide Disney vacation or a trip of a lifetime to any destination you can dream of. It’s my passion and I promise to make you dreams come true!

Ever since I can remember, I have been intrigued with what was “out there.” I’ve fulfilled that curiosity by travelling to some truly awe inspiring places. From sitting in the middle of an elephant herd on safari in South Africa, to a beautiful beach in Barbados, to cruising scenic Alaska, and climbing the Great Wall of China, my travel experiences help me to serve you better. Even the problems I’ve had, such as having everything stolen, flights cancelled, missed connections, or luggage not arriving gives me added experience to help my clients. I started Anita Get Away travel consultants to help others create their own vacation memories. I specialize in group tours or cruises, as well as health and wellness destinations. I’ve learned that the small details often make the biggest difference in a vacation and that’s where my research skills and experience come in. I know the right questions to ask and the most important details to cover in order to make your trip a complete success. While I have many favorite spots in countries from China to the Philippines to Europe, I often don’t stay in the same place twice because there are so many new experiences out there that I can share with my clients. My goal is to create a travel experience that is “as unique as you” and I will listen carefully to what you want and provide you options that reflect this. As your travel consultant, my passion, my personal experiences, and my attention to detail will put you at ease and you can begin your trip more relaxed. All you need to do is enjoy your trip and create some wonderful memories for you and your friends and family!

The travel bug bit me when travelling with my parents and siblings as a young child. From that moment I was interested in what the world had to offer. But how was I to make this happen living out in rural Ontario.
As a student I worked for the Ontario Travel Information Centre's helping people discover Ontario with suggestions of attractions, accommodation, and the different ways to get to where they needed to go. With this job I realized that I loved helping people and also enjoyed creating memorable experiences for them at the same time.
That lead me to my decision to become a travel agent over 30 years ago. During this time there has been a change in how my work is done with all the advancements in technology, but the need to help people, and to make peoples experiences unique and memorable has remained the same.
Over the years I have sent 100's of people to the Caribbean and Mexico. My attention to detail and meeting the requests of clients has always been an important part when providing vacation information.
When it comes to Customer Service I think that this is the key to my success. My clients come back to me because they know I care about their needs. Whether working with families, groups, or couples their requests, or needs are important!
With my years in the travel industry I have had the opportunity to travel by train from Banff to Vancouver on the Rocky Mountaineer, river cruise on the Danube, cruise along the Mediterraniean, plus enjoy the offerings of the wonderful All - Inclusive resorts.
Let me make your next travel adventure a vacation to remember.

The more I travel the more I realize that people are the same the world over; gracious hosts, generous with their culture and eager to share a part of their lives with travellers like me.
Travel consulting has been my career since 2005 when I graduated from North Island College's Travel Counselling program. Since every trip is unique to the person planning it I take as much care with a package as I do with a three-month adventure. I do love to piece together flights, trains, cars, tours and accommodations to come up with the journey the client has been dreaming of.
If you ask me my favourite destination I'll probably tell you it's the one I've just returned from! Among my favourites so far: Quebec City, New York City, New Zealand, Sydney Australia, Siena and Venice in Italy, Chiang Mai in Thailand, Bali... I just can't narrow it down.
I also love to cruise and am about to take a river cruise along the Danube, first taking in Berlin, Dresden and Prague and ending up in Bucharest, Romania.

I am addicted to travel! Whether planning for myself or others, I enjoy the process of putting in place a memorable adventure.
I have travelled quite extensively but cruising is my passion. As a nature/animal lover, my current choice is marine expeditions. Antarctica & the Galapagos Islands were two of my most impactful trips. Being a baby boomer, soft adventure is now more my style. I still want the adventure but find some adaptations/concessions may be needed.
As a former educator, I find travel to be one of the great learning experiences. I can tailor a trip to each person's unique interests and needs. As a subscriber of lifelong learning, I enjoy the continual upgrading of my knowledge base. Being with The Travel Agent Next Door allows me to do that as well as provides me the supportive environment to create unique itineraries.

Exotic trips are a new favorite for Pam, who has visited Asia four times in four years staying in China, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, and Macao. Other recent exotic locations visited were Egypt, Peru, Cuba, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Dubai, Korea, Japan, and the Panama Canal.
Pam's motto is "I haven't been everywhere yet, but it's on my list."

As a former art teacher and painter, my travels show me the world as a canvas to my imagination. I love to see how others express themselves.
A simple walk through quaint old towns, a leisurely stroll through a park or traveling through timeless rivers will always wake my passion for history and the art those before us created. A destination is not just a place, but rather a new way of seeing things. My recent journey to the South of France was exactly that! A beautiful place to discover.
I can help you find the perfect journey whether it be by land, sea or river. I would love to talk to you about your next inspiration.

I live in Regina, SK.
My first travel memory was my trip to Abu Dhabi and Dubai in 2010. We toured many of the major tourist destinations (the Mosque, Burj, the shopping centers). When I travel I always bring a good book to read on the beach, as this is a great way to relax and unwind. My best travel tip remember to relax and have fun. I have visited many of the provinces and 1 territory in Canada, United States, Mexico, Middle East and Germany (Frankfurt). If I had a year off I would travel the world with my family. My travel specialty is Europe. I love to plan someone’s dream holiday and learn about what they can see and do. Most memorable destination the Middle East, where I truly got to experience life outside of Canada and see how different cultures live and work. Travel in five words Sun, Fun, Relaxation, Family and Food

My first travel experience was horrible with such turbulence it felt like I was on a bumpy roller-coaster simulator. I have visited 4 countries - USA, Mexico, Cuba & Jamaica and my travel specialty is all inclusive packages. I love the idea of going on a holiday and not having to spend any money once you get there. My most memorable destination Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba ... a girl’s trip. The food wasn't great and one of the ladies in the group had just found out she was pregnant. Not exactly a good thing for an All Inclusive trip. It was not my favorite destination but I know I will never forget it! My best travel tip Buy travel insurance. You don’t ever think you need it, you never expect to get sick on your holiday but sometimes it happens. Don’t get stuck with a medical bill that insurance could have covered. My pride and joy are my two dogs, Hank and Rosie - 4 months apart and growing up together. To relax when I travel I lay on the beach with a frozen drink. Living Saskatchewan, we don’t get to do that often! Travel in five words Once in a lifetime experiences.

Hello and welcome to my page!
My name is Teresa Miller and I am here to help you with any of your travel needs.
All of my life I have been an avid travel, rather it be the long family road trips to Florida in the back of my father's 1970’s station wagon, back packing around Europe at the age of 17 for two months or a three and a half week journey to South Africa with my husband and two teenage girls! Travelling has always been a passion of mine that I have pursued as much as possible.
I have also always loved organizing trips, creating itineraries that include culture immersion, good food and wine, seeing the popular attractions of a destination as well providing that “live like a local” experience and of course, doing plenty of research on the classic “do’s and don'ts” while visiting other countries.
This is why in July 2018, I decided to join The Travel Agent Next Door team. I had always thought about going back to work, after being a stay at home mom with my children while they were younger, and I wanted to do something i was truly passionate about. So here I am!
I am a University of Western Ontario graduate, earning a Bachelor's degree in Geography and a loving mother and wife of my two girls Kirsten and Katelyn, and my husband Brad.
I am extremely dedicated to helping my clients fulfil their travel dreams of exploring new cultures and experiencing the best our world has to offer!
I understand creating the perfect trip requires careful planning, research and is extremely time consuming and that is why planning your own holiday can be overwhelming. This is where I step in! My expertise and suppliers can help you make an informative decision and help you get through all the planning process, to make your dream a reality.
I will help you make the right travel choice using my connections and relationships with all my suppliers. The Travel Agent Next Door team and I are there for you if anything goes wrong and we can help you plan your vacation so it will run smoothly from the moment you leave home till the moment you get back.
So give me a call, and I will be happy to help you in all your adventure planning!

My Travel Specialty includes Asia, Caribbean, Mexico & Cruises. My most memorable destination Cambodia, listening to the sounds of the jungle in Angkor Wat, and the first time I took my kids to Disneyland it was my first time too! My favourite food experience abroad was tasting a Thai pancake 30 years ago and then sharing that experience with my kids a few years ago. Imagine a crepe filled with banana, chocolate and condensed milk… mmmmm……. When I'm not talking about travel, you can find me looking at travel pictures and dreaming of places to see.

I caught the travel bug from my parents very early. We traveled my home state, California, from border to border taking in all that the Golden State has to offer. through the years I have been fortunate enough to visit many states, including Hawaii and Alaska. I've traveled Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean and even The Cook Islands. My two favorite destinations are Hawaii and Disney. Being from the West Coast, I have been fortunate enough to visit Hawaii a few times. I have both flown and cruised to our 50th state and just can’t get enough! My other favorite, some might say obsession, is Disney. My family is definitely a Disney family. Disneyland or Walt Disney World, we love them both!!! There is always a Disney visit on our calendar!I take great pleasure and care in making travel arrangements for my clients in hopes that they make lasting memories with their families in whichever destination they choose.
