... Lauren likes chocolate. Also dinosaurs, Doctor Who, and cruises. Sometimes she dabbles in graphic design, photography, video production, and cooking & baking. The rest of her time is mostly spent watching a ton of a reasonable amount of movies and television when she's not thinking, talking about, or currently on a cruise.

Lauren didn't want to murder the hibiscus so she just took a photo with it.

Lauren opened Abada Travel was because she was having so much fun researching and booking cruises that she decided that she should probably start doing it for other people! And she was right! Lauren loved finding the perfect cruise for clients that fits all their wants and needs - particularly honoring their budget! - and then getting vicarious enjoyment out of hearing about their adventure. 

Abada travel is the perfect match for anyone who no longer uses their phone like a phone. We won't call you unless you want us to. Whatever text-based communication method you prefer is good with us! 

While we specialize in cruise travel, we can absolutely work with you on whatever kind of travel floats your boat you most enjoy. 

Q: Why doesn't cartoon-Lauren have a nose?
A: Because Lauren liked "her" better without a nose. Lauren also doesn't have fingers, a rib cage, or feet.

Q: Why don't you use cartoons for your stories anymore?
A: Most of the time, her new stories have photos of what happened because digital cameras were invented. Maybe she'll Photoshop cartoon-her into some of the photos from now on for consistency.

Q: So, wait. If I ask you to book travel for me, you're not going to be doing it from your bed? Seems misleading...
A: No, sorry. Lauren will be doing it from her desk. She's no longer not a caveman. 

Q: What kind of travel can you book for me?
A: Lauren can book any kind of travel you want to do, but her familiarity with the cruise industry, from all her experience cruising, makes her better at booking cruises than other kinds of travel.
