TRVL Agent of the Week Diana arrived in Dallas, Texas via Oklahoma City after growing up in Florida, so she is no stranger to the warm and sunny Southern way of life.
Diana arrived in Dallas, Texas via Oklahoma City after growing up in Florida, so she is no stranger to the warm and sunny Southern way of life.
To her, Dallas is so much more, though: the historical Mexican influence, the oil money, and the cowboy aesthetic combine to create a culturally rich and endlessly surprising city. Dallas is also home to one of the world’s largest international airports, something Diana never takes for granted. “I can get on a plane and be out of U.S. airspace in less than 60 minutes,” she brags.
Her favorite trip to date has been an extended vacation in France and Spain. She took a night train from Paris and woke up to see the sparkling Mediterranean Sea by sunrise, outside her coach window. Spain’s culture, vibrant festivals, delicious food, and ebullient locals exceeded her expectations and she'd love to return to Spain time and time again. However, time is limited and the world is big. Diana wants to continue expanding her horizons by exploring new places and cultures.
“By immersing myself in the new and unknown, I have not only learned more about the communities that I share the earth with, but more importantly I have learned more about myself. Travel has been the most eye-opening and fulfilling endeavor I have ever experienced.”

A passion for travel is what brings most of us Agents to TRVL. Not everyone can sift through potential travel locations as the hours fly by unnoticed, but we can, and we find it enjoyable. Why not use our idea of fun to help those in our lives? Diana’s friend Lisa had a very early morning appointment in Tulsa, Oklahoma, quite a considerable distance from her home. Instead of waking up at the crack of dawn, Diana suggested, why not find lodging in town complete with a full breakfast, eliminating the early commute and the stress factor? Diana recommended Lisa a hotel right next door to where she needed to be, with a great rate, and Lisa was able to remove a huge stress factor from her life.
Take Diana’s lead as a TRVL Agent and engage enthusiastically with friends and family. Don't let them forget you can help them in this way! Everyone needs a hotel at some point, but may not have thought of a practical reason like today’s example. In providing this service to those close to her, she plans to extend her influence and become the go-to coordinator for personal and business travel.
Especially when returning home from an incredible trip, it is easy to infect those around us with the travel itch, and then help them arrange their own experiences in world exploration, whether on the sweeping golden plains of Texas and Oklahoma, or on the shining Mediterranean halfway across the world.
