About Us

It must have been the trip to Spain with my high school Spanish class that became the tipping point. (Hey, those Mediterranean countries will hook anybody!) From that time onward many of my happiest moments have been while trotting around this great country and the beautiful world beyond.

I'm the type that gets antsy if I can't set my eyes on a different horizon once every 3 or 4 months. A restless curiosity requires travel to be an important priority in my life.

So much so that 8 years ago the timing was right to embark upon, perhaps, the ultimate of trips --- Around the World. Yep! Redeemed all of my frequent flyer points and took off for 3 months traveling through 9 countries on 4 continents, circling the globe. It was awesome, I'm still learning from it and thinking about it.

One of the most important things that trip reinforced is that America provides business opportunities and the ability to create a life of your choosing like almost no other place on earth. Bolstered by that awareness and the fact that I had garnered over 20 years of solid business experience I decided it was time to strike out on my own. And, here you are looking at it.

It was exciting to realize that there wasn't a retailer who had focused on collecting the products that travelers use to remember their trips. Things like travel journals and photo albums, as well as travel-inspired scrapbooks and decorative embellishments, not to mention interesting picture frame designs, chosen for the traveler.

So what could be better? By nature, I am both a wanderer and a businesswoman and have now combined the two in the form of Hello Traveler. I'm a happy camper. (Except owning a business limits my nomadic habits!)

But ultimately, this website is about you. And about providing items that you like to help remember your travels and vacations. Enjoy the site and please do not hesitate to provide us with any feedback whatsoever, including product suggestions.

Wishing you many unforgettable journeys.
