You know, the one where she literally ate breaky with those glorious long-necked creatures?

We here at ID90 Travel love what we do. Sure, it’s super gratifying helping a well-deserving community save a ton on travel, but it’s much deeper than that. It’s stories like Freddy’s where we get weak in the knees, a little bit weepy, and say “This. This is why.” Freddy reached out to us the other day to share this super sweet story about his family’s adoption of a new member, and we about tripped over ourselves asking if we could share it as well
If you haven’t heard (or read), please allow us to be completely transparent with you for a moment… *Sigh* Here it goes. We’ve got the best Brand Ambassadors on this planet. There. We said it! Now you know everything. Phew, it feels good to get that off our chest! It’s been talked about all over our social media channels for a minute now, so we thought we’d just go ahead and address those positive accusations firsthand.
Humblebrag moment… we’ve got the absolute best Brand Ambassadors on this entire planet. We just do. We’ve got no shame in saying it!

We’ve teased you about it, and now it’s here! Welcome to the next installation of our Brand Ambassador introduction series. This time you’ll get to meet the lovely, the beautiful, the incredibly fun-loving Megan Elizabeth! She’s just a bundle of wonderfulness and grace (honestly we’re surprised she hasn’t become Miss United States), and we very literally cannot wait a single moment more not to share her with you all.
