Inspiring Conversations with Rob Hale of Travel N Relax

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rob Hale. He and his team share their story with us below:

Travel N Relax is a boutique-style full-service travel consultancy firm whose mission is to “Unify the World – One Traveler at A Time!”

Our story began in 1971 when the owner, Rob Hale was in an elementary school outside Washington D.C., and he participated in a Navaho student exchange program. This led him to consider if we can connect domestically on such a level what would happen in improving our world community if we could also connect internationally on this type of level.

With a degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management, Rob began his career at the Walt Disney World Resort where he was introduced to the travel advisor role at the Walt Disney Travel Company.

As the world became more separated, with everyone seeming to be against everyone else, Rob’s memories of the Navaho student exchange program continued to dwell in his mind.

Rob knew if we could move past our surface-level differences, we really share more in common as humankind than we have in differences. Rob’s heart yearned for a unified planet where we could discover and celebrate our commonalities vs the growing divisiveness that this world brings.

Thus, on August 1, 2004, Travel N Relax was “born” as a company where we would “Unify the World – One Traveler at A Time!”

By offering fully customized travel vacations, we would not only take our travelers to see the sights and experience the foods and cultures of their destinations (as all travel companies do) but we would also connect our travelers to the people of the destination to discover the shared commonalities that all humans have!

Joined with his wife, Lisa Hale, we develop unique fully customized one-of-a-kind travel experiences for each of our clients that cater to their travel needs and desires while unifying them with the people of the world around us! Our mission is to work towards world peace and unity among the world populations by showing our travelers our shared commonalities one traveler at a time!

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Running a travel business can certainly provide its share of obstacles and challenges. These can range from the unexpected like 9-11 and COVID which both shut down the travel industry. To everyday challenges businesspeople face.

Specifically, to Travel N Relax some folks may not desire to be connected to other people in other places. This is fine. We meet each person where they are at. Some may be comfortable just doing a short tour with a local from that destination. Others may be open to sharing a meal with a local. And still others may be open to a full-on immersion experience with 24/7 connections including homestays, tours, and meals.

Due to these varying levels of comfort for everyone, this creates challenges regarding how to comfortably meet each person where they are at. This is achieved by having an open discussion with everyone on what their desires are and catering first to those desires. If they do not desire to relate to someone at all that is fine too, and we will happily custom design a vacation experience that is perfect for them.
