Get Up and Go Travel was founded by Venessa Covington-Tate in 2017. Anyone that knows me know that I've had the travel bug since High School. It started with New York every weekend. I dedicated 30+ years to Corporate America. I looked forward to holidays as I would add 2 days before and 2 days after to go on vacation. My first wish was for a chauffeur, done! Now I need a Pilot and a Captain. I have since decided to follow my dreams. I read somewhere, - "Choose a job that you like and you will never work a day in your life" - Confucius
After traveling throughout the Caribbean, I felt it was time to share with the world some of the best kept beauties of nature. Like, climbing waterfalls in Tobago or climbing Dunns River Falls in Jamaica. Try sailing from St. Thomas to Tortola, B.V.I., Jost Van Dyke or stand on the deserted Spit Island (where Corona shoots their ads). How about landing in The Dominican Republic by jet and flying to your resort by helicopter? Grenada smells like Cinnamon , Barbados have Beautiful flowers and their aroma fills the air. Sail to Dominica and enjoy the natural Hot Springs, then on to Mexico, Hawaii, St. Croix, St. John, The Bahamas and......
Since that first trip to St. Thomas (many moons ago), I realized that travelling was My Niche, As you can see the Caribbean is my favorite, the unspoiled islands and natures' beauty enveloped me. Most of the islands are accessible from most major airports and have direct and non-stop flights. Cruising is a great way to visit more than one island in 7-10 days. Ships depart from lots of area ports, Like Maryland, Boston, Florida (of course). There are many departures from Bayonne, NJ and New York City too. Have your driver (Lyft or Uber) drop you at the New York Pier, climb aboard and Get The Party Started . Cruising is very economical as they are all-inclusive. Food and drinks are available 24/7. Great entertainment, from Broadway Shows to Comedy. If you want to be a star, try Karaoke, or lay on the deck and watch ice sculptures being created right before your eyes, while you work on that tan. Maybe you'll want to dance the night away at one of the discos or clubs and try your luck in the casino. There is soo much to do you'll need a vaca once you return from your vaca. Hench Get Up and Go Travel was born.
The United States is also a beautiful country, particularly the South and West. Some of my favorites are, Arizona, Nevada, Indiana, Utah, Texas, California, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and The Outer Banks in North Carolina to name a few. I probably have a friend or a friend of a friend on every island and every state, you can too! Pack your bags (pack light), grab your sunscreen and your phone (camera) and Get Up and Go Travel. Let me help you make memories you wont ever forget. Call, email or text me for more information.
