For a couple of newlywesds, Erin and Brian Adams certainly get out in the world. The Chicago
pair married in high style in Australia
at the start of 2018, and have already etched New Zealand
, Zanzibar, and Sint-Maarten on their “been there” list. Brian, 38, is in commercial real estate, and Erin, 39, owns a spa, but exploring new locales is where their union finds true expression. Phoenix-based Virtuoso travel advisor
Judi Glass helps build their journey one adventure at a time.
Brian: Travel is an obsession for us, I’m not gonna lie. To walk around and get lost, to take in the world and learn – it’s what we love doing the most.
One of our first trips together, before we were married, was Barcelona. We arrived the day before the terrorist attack on Las Ramblas. It was a very somber time in the city, and we were in lockdown for a couple of days. Judi contacted us to make sure we were OK. But the best thing was connecting with our guide, Vincente. He had so much pride in his city, and so much resolve and optimism. What could have been a mournful experience turned into a visit full of hope. I proposed to Erin the next day.
Erin: We got married on New Year’s Eve at the Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley in the Blue Mountains outside Sydney. We’d been planning a big wedding, but it got crazy, so we turned it into a trip instead. The staff coordinated the officiant, florist, photographer, and videographer. It was just the two of us and some wombats and kangaroos.
