Travel is one of the most exciting & rewarding experiences in the world.
Travel encourages you to be open to new adventures and different ways of life.
Travel enables you to soak in diverse cultures, eat delicious food, try new things, and to have thought-provoking new conversations and experiences that challenge yourself and your mindset.
Travel should change you.
But in order for that to happen, you need to be open to possibilities and to have the flexibility to explore on a whim.
By adhering to a strict schedule or an itinerary pre-planned for the masses (ah hem… group tours), you are limiting yourself from any opportunity that presents itself abroad.
It's these opportunities that turn any old ordinary trip, into your extraordinary adventure.
the Story of Sapphire & Elm Bespoke Travel Co.
Sapphire & Elm Travel was created in 2016 out of the belief that travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.
For 2.5 years I’ve been slow traveling to experience as many unique destinations, activities, cultures and ways of life as possible so that I can share them with you!
My goal is to help you travel beyond borders or boundaries with confidence & ease. To step out of your comfort zone so that you can expand your mindset and beliefs.
I believe that open-minded travelers will be the catalyst for a more peaceful and loving world.
but… what does Sapphire & Elm Mean?
Sapphire & Elm comes from drawing on the elements in which resonate deeply with me; water - the sparkling sapphire oceans, lakes and rivers, and the earth - rugged land of elm trees, forests and jungles.
In the places where water and earth meet, I feel most at home.
It’s in these places that civilizations arose, so I’m in good company!
Okay, but who are you?
Hey, there. I’m Stevie, the founder of Sapphire & Elm Travel, a California gal with a passion for cultures, adventure, and mindfulness.
I've visited 30+ countries, and I’ve solo traveled through 20 countries in Europe, Central and South America.
I’m an advocate of living a more conscious and sustainable life; I eat plant-based and believe that food is medicine, avoid plastic, and travel to as many off-the-beaten path destinations as I can!
I’m a yoga instructor and avid hiker

Your travels shouldn't be mass produced or non-negotiable.

Travel planning should be fun, not stressful.
There is so much information online and in guidebooks - it can feel overwhelming and impossible to sift through. Even after countless hours spent reading and researching, it's hard to feel confident in your decisions. After all this might be the only time you'll go to those cities or country.
Let me navigate the world of travel planning for you.
