Hi there! I'm Jessica, the founder of Guess Where Trips. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to learn about us. Here are some fun facts about myself and the Guess Where Trips journey:
Before starting Guess Where Trips, I've worked in some of the weirdest and most wonderful places in the world. I taught a travel course in North Korea and worked at the Ministry of Tourism in the Cook Islands (a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean). I've always had a passion for discovering the unknown.
The idea of Guess Where Trips originated from a Christmas gift I gave to my parents. I had planned an overnight surprise trip to Prince Edward County through a series of surprise envelopes. I enjoyed doing it so much, I started a business out of it!
This isn't the first business I've started. I had a travel deal blog and a consulting business for small tour operators. I'm passionate about entrepreneurship and am constantly thinking of new business ideas.
Guess Where Trips now has an amazing team of four full-time staff and quite a few extras who help on a part-time basis.
Our ultimate goal is to create an experience that will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and explore your own backyard.
