Bursch Travel - Northfield,



Linda T.

Years at Bursch Travel: 10 years as a travel advisor with Bursch; 16 years in total.

What is your background? I have a BA degree from Gustavus Adolphus College and am a Travel & Tourism grad. I spent many years in marketing with Tonka Toys and Ore-Ida before following my dream of being a Travel Advisor.

What are your areas of travel expertise? I am a certified Luxury Travel specialist. I love to plan river cruises, family vacations, destination weddings, honeymoons, incentive travel and bucket list trips. I travel extensively and have first-hand, up-to-date knowledge of many destinations around the world. In just the past few years I have visited Jordan, Dubai, Tahiti, Fiji, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ireland, Italy, Taiwan, the Caribbean, Mexico, Bermuda, Colombia, Costa Rica and Hawaii. I hope to add more to that list soon!

What is your favorite destination and why? Moorea (an island in Tahiti) in an overwater bungalow! It exceeded all of my expectations and was so romantic and fun!

What is your favorite part of the job? I enjoy helping clients experience the world and create memories through travel. It is so rewarding when clients return from their trip and share photos or stories of their fun and often life-changing experiences!

What are your hobbies (besides travel)? I enjoy biking, running, skiing, scuba diving, and photography. I have an Instagram account devoted to my travel pictures: https://www.instagram.com/travelin_da_world But most of all, I like spending time with my family.
