About John Paul 


Travel Agent Southlake

ACTIVELY PURSUE means to not stand idly by. To enjoy this life to its fullest by actively pursuing new cultures, new experiences, new adventures, new ways of doing things, new places— I could go on. I fundamentally believe that experiences are more important than things, and through that philosophy, have been to all 7 Continents & 51 Countries. I spent two summers in Africa – one in South Africa and another in Kenya. 10 trips to Asia and 1 Around the World trip have helped me see our planet in ways I will never forget.

Some of my best travel memories have come from fly-fishing in New Zealand, family bike rides through the streets of Paris, spotting the big five in a South African safari and reaching Everest Base Camp in Nepal.

After many years of planning trips for friends and family, I became a travel advisor specializing in Luxury Active & Cultural Travel. It gives me great satisfaction to plan custom trips for couples, families and groups and feels great to have had a small role in helping people celebrate special occasions, spend quality time together and experience the wonder and excitement of new lands.
