WHO'S READY FOR A YAYCATION?

First, you might be wondering what is a yaycation?

A yaycation is the trip of a lifetime that checks all of

your travel boxes with a stress-free planning process.

YOUR TRAVEL JOURNEY BEGINS WITH A PLAN

Long-Term

Travel Plan

We know your travel life list has more than one destination. We will work together to plan for your Swiss adventure in June, all-inclusive Mexico resort stay in January, a family trip to Disney next November, and everything else in between. 

Global

Community

Travel is all about bringing people and families together. When you travel with Yaycations, you instantly become part of a global community of travellers that you can connect and share experiences with.

Authentic

Experiences

At Yaycations, we believe that the best experiences are the ones you will not find in the guide books. We know all the best local spots and hidden gems around the world. 

We know you want to explore the world, not just see it. The idea of travelling is all fun and games until you realize you have to plan the trip first.  Add in kids and it can feel even more challenging. This is the step where most people are left feeling overwhelmed and put their vacation dreams on hold. Your day-to-day life is hectic enough, and you do not have time to research and plan a vacation. 

 

We are here to make travel planning simple by taking the guesswork out of planning and creating an unforgettable, authentic travel experience just for you. 

Life's a trip. Take it together!
 

It’s time to take a yaycation. 

Hi there!

I’m  Melissa Baum, a travel enthusiast and the owner of Yaycations.

 

Travel has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have lived in and travelled to nearly 20 countries and counting! I have some great stories to share from culture-focused European tours and hiking the Appalachian Trail to working in Australia and Germany. Did I ever tell you about the time I got engaged in a bat-filled cave while backpacking through Southeast Asia?

 

My travels have given me an equal love for adventure and relaxation. While trekking through the jungle is a memorable experience, I know how important it is to sit back and unwind on the sun-soaked beaches of Mexico. The last thing you want is to feel like you need a vacation from your vacation. 

 

I also know how stressful and overwhelming the travel planning process can be, especially with a family life list that is a mile long. This is where my planning expertise comes in handy! I want to take your vacation dream and elevate it to the next level, all while working within your time and financial requirements.  

 

Whether this is your one week a year to wind down and reconnect with your family, or your dream life list trip you have been waiting for – the one thing I can guarantee is that I will treat your vacation like it is my own.  

 

Let’s begin planning your next Yaycation together!

Travelling should be a fun and memorable experience, and the same goes for travel planning.
