Custom Travel Consulting

At All Who Wander, our consultants specialize in specific areas of the world. For each trip, our clients will work with the consultant that knows their destination best. While located in Central Ohio, our team services clients from all corners of the United States.

We are not travel agents in the sense that we only work for and sell the products of certain vendors. Instead, we work for you, our clients, as consultants in the planning of your vacations!

We are the concierges for your trips – handling the details so you do not have to.

We customize your travel – planning the trip that is perfect for you and your desires and budget.  We take the time to get to know you and match you with the accommodations and experiences that fit your needs – from vacation packages to full custom itinerary services!

Amanda Smerdel
Owner + Travel Consultant

Amanda has loved language and culture since childhood. She began learning French at the age of six, and visited Europe for the first time as a young teenager. Her passion grew and led her to a career as a foreign language teacher.  Amanda has lived in France and traveled extensively in Europe and throughout the US, Central America and the Caribbean. As a teacher she led groups to international destinations and now enjoys sharing those same experiences with her husband and two children.
Amanda specializes in Europe, Asia, and other world destinations, as well as group and academic travel. Her favorite part of being a travel consultant is getting to know her clients.  This personal connection allows Amanda to create a truly custom travel experience for her clients, while also sharing her own knowledge and experience.

Melanie Kiffner
Travel Consultant

Melanie has enjoyed traveling for as long as she can remember. She was lucky to travel throughout the United States as a young girl and, as she got older, her interest in new and exotic locations only intensified. Whether cruising the Caribbean, enjoying a tour of Europe, or relaxing on beach trips to Mexico and Hawaii, Melanie’s travel experience is best described as diverse and eclectic. As a former high school biology teacher, Melanie now combines her love of the natural world with her love of travel and enjoys sharing both with her husband and two children. 
Melanie specializes in island destinations, including the Caribbean, Hawaii, and Pacific Islands/Australia, as well as other North American beach destinations and Walt Disney World.  Melanie enjoys working with couples to customize romantic get-aways and honeymoons, and she has a particular interest in destination weddings.
