More About Barbi – Vacation Travel Advisor 

Barbie Partlow, Travel AdvisorMy journey with travel officially began in 1991.  Ever since I can remember, I’ve been enamored with the South Pacific and its’ people.  For years I dreamed of Bora Bora and knew that one day I just HAD to go there.  Amazingly, my dream has come true many times over.

Because of my passion for the South Pacific, I’ve earned specialty designations for Tahiti (Tiare Agent), The Hawaiian Islands (Akamai), and Fiji Islands (Matai).

There’s something compelling about the South Pacific and the Islands of Tahiti that draws me in over and over. “Mana”, is the spirit that pervades the people and culture of the “Maohi” or Polynesian people which means that “The power of the elemental forces of nature embodied in an object or person.”  If truth be told, I can feel and identify with the spirit of the people I meet in these islands and can hear the drumbeat of their hearts.

In addition to the South Pacific, my travel experience is diverse. I’ve traveled to Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, Central America, Australia, and the South Pacific as well as the United States and Canada. Plus – I have experience with planning customized itineraries, escorted tours, small groups, and ocean and river cruising.

When not planning travel for my clients, I am active with missions and healing ministry in my church. I enjoy reading, outdoor activities, acting in community theatre, and cats!
