Welcome to Wishes & Wanderlust Travel Blog

I’m Altie Nicholas and owner of Wishes & Wanderlust Travel. I started my travel business in 2016 after helping friends and family plan their Disney vacations and also our yearly adult trip with framily (you know, friends that are really family). We were planning our next one when my BFF asked “Why don’t you become a travel agent?” Hmmm, I don't know?? So a few days later I consulted google on how to become a travel agent and that search led me to an article from the host agency that I ended up signing with and the rest is history!

My love of travel didn’t happen until well into adulthood when I met my husband. He was a big Disney fan and was excited to share that love with me since I had never been. In 2005, he took his kids and me on our first trip to Disney World and I was hooked. We have taken many trips since and it is one of our favorite family vacations. Add in cruises on all of Disney Cruise Line's ships and it's safe to say we are a Disney fans for life!

"I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing-that is was all started by a mouse."

--Walt Disney

Since starting my business, I have visited dozens of all inclusive resorts, sailed different cruise lines and still take regular trips to Disney World and Disneyland to keep up with their changes, all so I can do the best job for my clients! I am so blessed my business survived through the COVID era because so many didn't. Being a small business owner is a tough, but rewarding job and I can't believe my love of travel turned into a job I love too.

Come along with me on my adventures that hopefully inspire you to go on adventures of your own! I will also share industry news, destination write-ups and other travel topics to keep you informed and spark your own wanderlust. Let me know if there's anything or any place you want to learn more about!

Until next time….
