Let's explore.

There's no adventure too big or too small.

Hi, I'm Cassie, and I have a passion for helping people travel. Traveling means something different to everyone, so there's no one-size-fits-all advice for planning the perfect trip. Whatever your needs are, I'll work with you to plan a unique trip that inspires your passions and fits your lifestyle and budget. Travel Garden is a travel planning service, blog, and hopefully, a source of advice and inspiration to show that travel is for everyone. I love finding off-the-beaten-path gems and facilitating local experiences that allow travelers to truly immerse in a new place.

As a travel consultant I work with people on everything from a car rental for a day-trip, to a custom-planned itinerary for an extended adventure. I travel as much as possible to maintain my expertise, including moving abroad. Most recently I moved to Melbourne, Australia and also explored New Zealand while there.

 

I traveled through six countries in Europe (Greece, Serbia, Budapest, Italy, Spain, and Portugal) before coming back home to Montana to visit family for the summer.  I've also lived in Morocco (Marrakech), Spain (Murcia and Bilbao), Mexico (Patzcuaro and Sayulita), Portugal (Lagos), and have traveled to many other places. I’m extremely passionate about creating meaningful experiences for travelers and helping people reach their own travel goals. Travel has given me so much, and I am excited by any chance to pay that forward.

Cassie Hintz

Travel Consultant and blogger

Vagabond from Montana. Lover of mountains, good beer, and fluffy dogs.

 

In the last six years I've moved abroad six times, to five countries, on four continents. I’ve lived with three host families and learned two new languages. I’ve skydived in Mexico, cliff jumped in Portugal, bungee-jumped in Spain, and hitch-hiked across Italy. I’ve hiked on frozen waterfalls in Croatia, navigated Amsterdam’s canals, bartended at an Ice Bar in Australia, and climbed dunes in Morocco.

 

I've been a canvasser and an organizer on political campaigns, worked at a grassroots non-profit, and worked at the Montana legislature. I worked at a science center for kids and taught English at a high school in the Basque Country (where I was also a live-in Au Pair). I've been a bartender (in Portugal), a cater-waiter, a waffle-maker, a dog-walker, an actress, and a jewelry-maker. I've also been a glass-blowing apprentice and a decorative wood-carving apprentice.

 

In December I moved from my hometown in Montana to Melbourne, Australia on a Working Holiday Visa. In addition to growing Travel Garden, I've been making and selling my own jewelry on Etsy and at local markets.

 

I live for new experiences and I've gained so much from each one. The best opportunities come when you keep yourself open to them; feel free to reach out with any comments, ideas, collaborations, or just to say hello.
