About Miranda

I’m forever in anticipation of taking off somewhere new and feeling the excitement and rush of adventure that comes with a new destination. I believe that travel always adds to our life; it is enriching and monumental. It leaves us with precious memories, new knowledge and a greater connection to the world around us.  

My passion for travel is sustained by the deep and lasting relationships I form. The combination of a love of travel and helping others has led me to a profession that I have made my own. When creating my own business, I wanted to keep all the things I loved: the connection, the adventure and the inspiration, while letting go of the fleeting one-size-fits all approach that characterizes some travel agencies. I seek to use all my freedom, and all my knowledge to create lasting, intimate and purposeful connections with my clients. This change has allowed me to fall in love with my profession again, and to offer a service I feel very proud of, and, very connected with. 

I provide to my clients the things I would want for my own journeys: detailed and thoughtful support, so the excitement of far-away places can sweep you away. My experience supports you so that you can discover beautiful moments that bring lightness to your travels. As a Certified Travel Consultant and Master Cruise Consultant I am well equipped to help create an experiential journey that is tailor-made just for you. 

I am a wife and mother of two who loves a great family adventure as much as spending lazy Sundays with them.

My love for personal training means that fitness and nutrition is always balanced in our daily lives (paired with a good glass of wine, of course!) , 

I am an award winning travel professional with over ten years of experience and continually dedicate my time to learning and growing, to be the best consultant for your journey that I can be. I am a wanderlust advocate and invaluable connection for all of your travels.

Which means I know all the fine details, and can help you create a masterful plan.

I look forward to supporting you.

 

Seven Questions with Miranda

1. What does “Journey” mean to you?

A journey to me means being able to step back from that perfectly planned itinerary and soaking in the experience as you go. Having a plan is great, but being able to surrender to the experience in the moment is what creates life long memories.

2. What is your favourite travel moment/destination so far?

This is a tough choice! But so far, Australia would win this title. It’s funny because before I had the opportunity to go, it was never a destination that was on top of my list. But, once I got there I fell in love(the scenery, beaches, cities, oh…. and the accents!). Plus, snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef was pretty spectacular.

3. Where is your next big adventure taking place?

My travel schedule lately has consisted of a series of shorter adventures (7 days at a time typically). I have a few more trips to Mexico & the Caribbean coming up, but I also have New York City & a European River Cruise on my radar for 2017. I’m constantly plotting my next adventure.

4. What are your three carry-on necessities?

Celebrity Gossip Magazines (guilty travel pleasure), an IPad loaded with Movies (because you can’t always trust the quality of inflight entertainment!), a few small toiletries & a change of clothes (just in case your checked luggage had different travel plans!)

5. Would you rather have the Power of Flight or Telepathy?

Telepathy for sure! I honestly really don’t enjoy flying, but my wanderlust outweighs my dislike of Air travel. However, if I had a Private Jet at my disposal this may change my answer a little. ;)

6. What are you most proud of in your life so far?

Becoming a Mom. It is hands down the most challenging and rewarding experience I have had (as you parent’s know!). I am also grateful to be able to give my girls the opportunity to travel at an early age is; I really believe that some of the best education you can receive is through experiencing new destinations and cultures. Being able to provide my daughters with that first hand opportunity is something that I’m very proud of.

7. What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

3 things come to mind:

Firstly, I love when we are in the planning process and I hear that sense of relief from my clients know we have built a solid plan and that they have someone in their corner who has best interests at heart.

Secondly, I love hearing about my client’s experiences and seeing photos when they return... the first hand feedback they provide is invaluable.

And last, I love learning. This is an industry that is constantly evolving, and to keep up with it means constant education. Of course, on the ground (in destination) first hand learning is my favorite kind (and definitely most rewarding!)

Miranda was amazing to deal with in our wedding planning. We booked our group with Miranda and have benefited so much from all of her expertise. She has always been prompt in her responses (even when on a vacation of her own!) and offers a wealth of knowledge about multiple resort properties across Mexico. She has really gone out of her way to make things easier and stress-free for not only me but my guests as well. I can't imagine planning my destination wedding without a travel coordinator, and I'm so happy I decided to use Miranda's services.

WAS THERE A PARTICULAR EVENT THIS TRIP WAS FOR?

Wedding

I had gone to a wedding fair with the sole purpose of finding a travel agent to help us organize our guests for our Mexico wedding. I am so glad I met Miranda! Navigating the flight/hotel packages with all of the providers would have been a nightmare if we didn't have her to guide us when making a decision. She is also extremely knowledgeable about many of the hotels in the area we married in, and was a big help in helping us narrow down a resort. When it came to booking, all of our guests said that Miranda was professional and easy to deal with. You can tell she really enjoys what she does! While we were on our trip there was a mix-up with one of our guest's reservation (hotel's fault). A quick email to Miranda and she took care of everything - my friend got to sit by the pool with no worries while it was being sorted out. If you are looking for someone to coordinate travel for your wedding group I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend Miranda.

We made the decision to select Miranda Bukowicki as our destination wedding planner at our first meeting. She simply shouted professionalism; prepared, knowledgeable, organized and detailed. With her easy communication style we knew Miranda was someone we wanted handling our important event AND interacting with our family and friends. We trusted Miranda from the outset and she never let us down. Miranda has made all our planning simple, easy and stress free. We appreciate her timely responses to our questions and note even when she is out of the office, Miranda always gets back to us with the answers. I must add that my Mom loves her and says she is the most efficient and courteous event planner she has ever dealt with. In fact, all of our guests have commented on Miranda's timeliness, her reassuring and easy manner and just what a pleasure she is to deal with. We most definitely recommend Miranda to anyone planning their upcoming destination wedding.
