Hi friends...

I'm Amy Stefansic
founder of Ardour Travel + Event Planning

This is my story

hey ya'll, I'm Amy, a lover of adventure and a true daydream believer. a cat and dog mom extraordinaire, amateur photographer and self proclaimed jokester. I'm constantly challenging myself to step out of my comfort zone to pursue my dreams and create a life full of excitement and fulfillment.

I've had a lifelong fascination with exploring new places, meeting new people, and immersing myself in different cultures. As I've grown older, this passion has only intensified, and I've come to realize that helping others experience the joy and wonder of travel is my true calling. It is from this place that Ardour Travel and Events was born. 

I've always been captivated by the unfamiliar and unexpected, nurturing an insatiable curiosity for the places I've never been and the people I've never met. My passport is a testament to the many incredible experiences I've had so far in  my travels with each one leaving a lasting imprint on my heart and soul.

I believe the key to living a fulfilling life is to embrace imperfections and learn from my mistakes. I am always on a personal journey to find peace and contentment in every moment and stage of my life.

I firmly believe in defying limitations and transforming the impossible into reality. Spreading kindness wherever I go is a conscious choice, understanding its remarkable ability to uplift and inspire others.

In my opinion, experiences will always be greater than material possessions. I strive to go, see, and do as much as possible, always with a smile on my face and an open heart. I am unapologetically myself, raw, unfiltered, and imperfectly perfect. I invite you to join me on this remarkable lighthearted journey of discovering all that the world has to offer.

Santorini surpassed all expectations. Wandering through dreamlike streets with iconic blue-roofed buildings against the deep blue sea felt like stepping into a story. Every turn revealed cozy cafes, quirky shops, and secluded viewpoints offering panoramic snapshots of dramatic cliffs. The worn cobblestone streets held the stories of countless footsteps, leading to charming squares and historic landmarks. As the sun set, Santorini transformed into a canvas of warm colors, slowing down time and inviting appreciation for simplicity and the richness of the moment

Some cherished travel memories center around Belize, a destination known for its unique charm and unforgettable moments. Engaging with the lively local culture and community left a lasting impact, and the beaches, kissed by the Caribbean sun, were sanctuaries of relaxation. From the laid-back vibes of Caye Caulker to the secluded coves of Ambergris Caye, each sandy shore had its own charm. Snorkeling in the Hol Chan Marine Reserve revealed a mesmerizing underwater world, where tropical fish, sharks, and stingrays coexisted peacefully. Being surrounded by these incredible creatures in their natural habitat was both humbling and awe-inspiring.

cinque terre

Walking through Cinque Terre, Italy, was like entering a storybook. Colorful villages clung to cliffs, each a burst of pastel against the deep blue sea. Wandering narrow streets felt like a journey back in time, with the scent of the ocean mixing with fresh seafood and pasta aromas. Local life spilled into the streets—people chatting in cafes, mending nets, and sharing smiles. Every turn revealed new discoveries, from cozy cafes to breathtaking sea views. As day turned to night, the sky transformed into warm colors, and the sound of waves against rocks became a comforting backdrop to twinkling village lights. It was a simple joy, soaking in the beauty of the moment and the charm of Cinque Terre.
