About me

Hi, I’m Renee, otherwise known as The Holidaymaker. There are two things about travelling that I love as much as the trip itself- the planning before I go and sharing my experiences with others when I return. 

My first trip abroad was to Germany. I just turned 17 and was traveling alone to attend high school for credit followed by a holiday with my Oma. That experience forever changed me. Fast forward to today. I am not your typical travel blogger. I did not sell my house or all my possessions. I am not a professional photographer or writer. And, I didn’t quit my corporate day job. This is just what I love to do!

I am also a bit of a daydreamer. It easily starts with a photo, an online article, a conversation with a friend and the next thing you know I am in full blown information gathering mode. I research obsessively and tirelessly to find the perfect accommodations. I search for the unique and the boutique, and yes, I often build my itinerary around those amazing places to stay. I just love architecture.  

My ideal holiday is knowing enough about the place I am traveling to, but without planning every last detail. About splitting my time between seeing the main attractions and getting lost in the city streets and discover the undiscovered. 

This was the inspiration for Plan Dream Experience – a place of information sharing- whether that is a day trip close to home or travel far away to a new destination. I hope my experiences inspire you to plan your next adventure.
