Our history

Hi! My name is Helena Korszun and I am the owner and creator of Ready.Set.Travel. I am a Charlotte, NC native, but I have spent most of my life traveling and exploring the globe. My first adventure began at 8 years old when I went to visit family in Budapest, Hungary and took a train through Germany into Warsaw, Poland to visit more family! Since my first trip across seas, I have been to 5 continents, and intend on visiting all 7! I have road tripped from the East Coast of Carolina to the West Coast of California. My love for travel and experiencing new cultures has taken me exploring through Brazil, Argentina and Peru. I have road tripped through Taiwan and attempted sheep counting in Scotland (there are a lot of sheep). I have camped in a hammock for weeks in the Catskills Mountains and taken month long ski trips through the various ski resorts in beautiful Colorado. I’ve studied yoga in Hawaii and Puerto Rico and set sail in the Bahamas.

It’s easy to see that I have a passion for traveling, but I also have a passion for helping others travel! My venture into the travel industry began when I worked at the luxurious 5 star 5 diamond Sanctuary Hotel on Kiawah Island, SC, a beautiful resort nestled just outside of Historic Charleston. It was there that I began customizing trips for clients on a domestic level. After making a move back to my hometown of Charlotte, NC, I was presented with an opportunity to take my trip planning on an international level. For two years I studied under a mentor and orchestrated personalized vacations for a wide array of clients, generating great feedback about my ability to thoroughly plan every aspect of a trip. In 2018, I decided to open my own travel agency and in a short time I have gained a large following of vacationers and word-of-mouth referrals. I have turned my dreams into reality, and you can see the passion for what I create in the unique personalized touch I bring to every vacation. So please, don’t hesitate to inquire about your next adventure today! I can’t wait to work with you! I am excited to announce that I am credentialed as an “Expert Blogger” through consumersadvocate.org!!
