New York, NY – Absolute Travel has evolved into a dynamic and growing organization which is able to attract and attain the world’s leading luxury travel specialists. Mr. Gaddis will enhance Absolute Travel’s destination repertoire and travel by interest journeys with his passion for rough yet luxurious adventures and in-depth knowledge of the world’s more remote destinations. Thrill-seeking adventures, photographic expeditions, and posh getaways are Gaddis’s passion and specialty. His adventures include fly fishing in Ecuador, discovering the mighty glaciers in Chamonix, heli-skiing in North America and Canada, hiking Nicaragua’s rainforests, and luxuriating at the most deluxe properties along the way. His firsthand knowledge and ability to take a classic destination and give it an edge intrigues travelers, earns the trust of his clients, and creates for memorable experiences.
Mr. Gaddis states, “I get my energy from exploring the world and sharing it with others—it’s what I love to do. I strive to make every trip as unique as the clients I’m working with, and packed with moments my clients could never forget. In the past that has meant meeting monks in remote monasteries in the Himalayas, a surprise Prosecco toast after skiing down South America’s best powder, and handpicking properties that are special and unexpected. These are the details that make a trip.”
Founder and president at Absolute Travel, Ken Fish, stated, “Absolute Travel is recognized as the worldwide leader in private luxury travel—not only because we create beautiful deluxe journeys—but also because of our extraordinary team.” Fish added, “Our success is rooted in a staff whose passion for exploring the world is unrivaled. Owen’s spirit is contagious, and we’re that much stronger having him on board.”
