For the 7th time, Susan Sparks has been hand-selected as one of Travel + Leisure's 'A-List'; a compilation of the world's best travel advisors. T+L celebrated this 15th annual list on August 9th at The Bellagio during Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas, and Susan was recognized again for her outstanding expertise in adventure travel.
"About 70 percent of Sparks’s trips include biking and hiking, so she makes sure to map out paths in advance, noting distance, altitude, and incline to prepare her clients for journeys to Vietnam and Nepal," reports Travel + Leisure.
"My company concentrates on active travel for discerning clients to promote life changing moments in the luxury market. My mission is to make it easier for people to travel and to follow their passion," says Susan.
Also specializing in travel to Asia, Susan predicts Nepal and the five 'stans' of Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan) as the popular new destinations in the upcoming year. Her "can't miss" hidden gem? Mustang, Nepal - "fabulous for adventure travelers who want to experience the purity of a Tibetan culture," says Susan.
Travel + Leisure says it best: "In the hands of an expert, a simple vacation can become a life-changing journey: an unforgettable adventure; a soul-restoring retreat; an education unmatched in any classroom."
