My name is Alissa Temperine and I am


The Trip Designer

From the moment I first flew over the turquoise waters of the Caribbean nearly 20 years ago, I was drawn in by the beauty and serenity of the various shades of green and blues.  I could see coral reefs with such clarity that I felt as if I was intruding upon the marine life who reside there.  As I watched the clear blue sea lap against the powdery-white shoreline, I dreamed of traveling to more amazing locations, discovering new sights that would take my breath away and experiencing adventure and the local culture of those destinations. 


Over the years, I have had the opportunity to visit several Caribbean islands as well as Mexico with friends and family.  The resorts and theme parks of Florida are a family favorite as are the quaint beach towns of the U.S. Eastern & Gulf Shores.  Central and South America are on my short-list of places to explore as is the South Pacific and Europe.


As a mom of two very energetic boys and wife of a Pennsylvania State Police Corporal, I understand the toll that daily responsibilities can take on an individual.  I appreciate the value and importance of a great vacation and the need to step away from reality to make lifelong memories - as a couple and as a family.  I love traveling and the enjoyment that comes from a well-planned vacation!!  Allow me to provide my travel expertise and professional planning services to you-at no additional cost!!
