Hi, I'm Brooke Walker. I'm a 41-year-old Texas gal who absolutely thrives on exploring new places. I credit my parents, my adventurous friends, Rick Steves, and a former career in product development with my desire to explore all the world has to offer.
What's my travel style?
While I'm certainly envious of people who can travel the world at their leisure or who have been nearly everywhere, I am not one of those people. I have, however, been to some incredible places and have done so by making the most of my resources and opportunities. That's my very real, very practical "make it happen" side.
My other bucket-list slaying, adventurous side finds freedom in traveling alone, takes ridiculous photos (I've never met a statue I didn't love), and doesn't mind being a tourist. I have the memories and stories to prove it.
Why Happy Tracks?
I created Happy Tracks after discovering how many of my friends were "envious" of me and my unabashed adventures. They, as so many people do, want to break out and explore the world, but they're either overwhelmed by the travel planning process, held back by fear, or simply don't think they can do it for one reason or another (finances, family, physical limitations, etc.). Pair this revelation with my frustration with corporate life, and voila, Happy Tracks was formed. (For more on why I named my business Happy Tracks, click here.) My ultimate goal here is to simply help others overcome these hurdles by helping them take the first step to discovering the unrivaled joy and enlightenment found by exploring the world. I do this for love of the journey.
