My name is Moani Hood and my number one passion in life is to inspire others to seek out new travel experiences! As a travel consultant with Cordially Yours Travel, I am excited to help make many travel hopes and dreams become a reality. I am a firm believer that the best time to travel (aka make your dreams come true) is the present time. As Paulo Coelho puts it, “One day you will wake up and realize there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.” Whether it be near (day trips from your home) or far (jet setting to another continent), there is always something new just at your fingertips!
A little bit of background on me – I’m a graduate of the Travel Sales and Marketing program at Los Medanos College. I am most experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to Hawaii – particularly, Maui, as that is where I was born and raised, and also where I developed a passion for the travel and tourism industry. Seeing visitors enjoying their travels to an awesome destination forged a strong desire within me to venture out into the world and collect my own experiences. I return home to the islands every year or two to indulge in my favorite foods and visit my family, and have plenty of recommendations for the perfect trip to my homeland!
I’ve also had the opportunity to visit other amazing destinations such as Paris, France, and the wonderful regions of Italy including Liguria (along with Cinque Terre), the Umbrian countryside, and Florence. I’d love nothing more than to help craft your own European adventures! I have also traveled all over the Western U.S. on numerous road trips with my awesome travel partner (my husband). And, as a huge foodie and craft beer/wine lover, I always focus on making sure food and drink are a core part of the travel experience.
I also love to write and take photographs, and document all of my travel experiences on my travel blog and YouTube channel. Connect with me on social media if you are looking for more inspiration!
