Hey, I’m Tonya, the navigator of this detail-obsessed blog.


I write Detail Oriented Traveler because I want to help busy moms like myself find the educational and interesting straight-forward details in their travels in order to get more out of the ordinary experiences. I want to travel beyond the cookie cutter vacations in order to broaden our worldview while creating lifelong memories and points of discussion. My passion is helping other families do the same.

I’ve found so many moms that want a unique and authentic vacation but don’t have the time to plan it. My passion is travel planning and finding those hidden gems.


But that’s really just a lot of words, isn’t it?


Who I really am is a map crazed, detail-oriented obsessive planner, that likes to learn the tiny tidbits of the places I’m heading to. I’m the planner, the organizer, the type A if you will.


If you’re willing to drive, I’ll discover the hidden gems and details along the way.


Grab your shades, hop in, crank up the 80’s Hair Bands and enjoy the ride. Oh, and don’t forget the coffee!
