Martha King has worked in our La Porte office since September, 1983. She is celebrating her Silver Anniversary both with Edgerton Travel and with her husband, Steve. She and Steve have a 21 year old son, Sam, who is a junior at Indiana University in Bloomington. Sam often accompanies Martha on her travel adventures, starting when he was 2 months old. Other travel companions frequently include her sister, Laura, and her friend, Sue, who call themselves the "Vagabond Princesses." Martha is a lifelong resident of La Porte.
She credits her parents for instilling a love of travel in her at an early age. Her mother frequently told her "I never regretted any trip I took. It's the ones I didn't take that I regret." Martha has lived by that philosophy and is always ready to go! She is a beach bum at heart, having worked her way through college at Purdue as a lifeguard. It should come as no surprise that her favorite destinations are Hawaii (has been there 5 times), Riviera Maya (3 times, most recently at the new Valentin Resort), and a cruise to anywhere (or nowhere...she doesn't care where the ships go...she's a veteran of over 25 cruises!). Her favorite non-beach destination is Alaska, having been there twice.
She prefers active vacations and you're likely to find her whitewater rafting, zip lining, snorkeling, hiking or bike riding. Destinations still on her "bucket list" include whitewater rafting in Costa Rica, hiking the Inca Trail in Peru, and cruising through the Panama Canal, the Amazon, and the Mediterranean. Continuing education courses which she has completed or is currently enrolled include Apple Vacations, Sandals, Destination Wedding, Hawaii, Peru, Costa Cruise Line, NCL, and Princess Cruises (achieved Commodore Status). Let Martha help you plan the perfect honeymoon, family, or active vacation!
