Wedding Planner. Salsa dancer. Travel addict.
I took my first solo trip to the most unexpected of places - Japan - and I knew instantaneously that I was onto something. That first solo trip led me to do other solo trips including trekking in Himalayas. All these trips gave me everything I was looking for and more - happiness, new experiences, new cuisines, adventure, meeting new people and a new found confidence.
35 countries and 6 years later my spirit and passion for solo travel has grown exponentially. I have an insatiable hunger to explore new cultures. So much so that in 2017 I was backpacking for 147 days in total through Europe and South East Asia.
I am always chasing the sunshine, the ocean and my next great adventure.
My other passion is weddings. I founded my own wedding planning company - JoySmiths - and I am a certified wedding planner from Wedding Planning Institute in New York City. JoySmiths tag line is “Spreading joy for the love of it” and I live by it. I have now set sights on merging my two passions - traveling and weddings.
I travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted by routine - Caskie Stinnett

Teach, Learn, Share
What I've learned from my travels is that the simplest of times brings the grandest of pleasures and the hardest goodbyes often lead to the best hellos. I've learned that crazy chances guide us to unexpected discoveries and that you have to hold onto your smile everyday to free yourself of things that make you frown :)
