My Travel Story

by: Tara Ekholm Start Date: Jun 8, 2017 - End Date: Oct 7, 2017
I have a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Iceland this November. I have always dreamed of a winter trip to Iceland! 

I am a single mom, working hard and providing for my amazing 3 year old son. Everything I do, I do for him. Anyone that knows me, knows I am at my happiest when I am able to be creative and adventurous. I try hard to balance my creative, artistic self with fulltime work and being the best mom I can be. This trip is a dream come true and I would sincerely appreciate any help I can get to make it happen. 

For those of you wondering, what about your child while you are off petting Viking horses, I have a strong support system in my parents and my son's grandparents. They are making themselves available and planning fun activities for him, so while I am gone he will have a great time with loving family. 

What will your contribution pay for?

I am taking this trip with three other amazing women. As we are all cost conscience and are looking for ways to make this trip affordable, therefore, we are splitting costs. Your contributions will help me pay for my portion of:
  • Round trip airfare (economy) from San Diego to Reykevik
  • Shared accomodations in Grindavik, Iceland. We have opted to stay outside the capital as it is less costly and we will have a better opportunity to see the Aurora Borealis. 
  • My portion of the cost for a rental vehicle. We have determined that it will be more affordable to rent a vehicle and create our own tour schedule, rather than taking planned tours. 
  • Meals and incidentals, including museum admissions
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I appreciate any contributions big or small. As a thank you, I will be creating one of a kind photo gifts for my benfactors. These will be from photos taken during the trip and be matted and signed.
