Joy Martinello

Joy entertained her desire to travel the day after she graduated from college, when she strapped a backpack on her back and wandered off to explore Europe. Since those days, Joy has put her organizational skills to work by helping others visit extraordinary destinations and having life-changing experiences. Santa Fe, New Mexico became home for Joy during the 90's, where she had the pleasure of sharing this culturally rich region as a special events coordinator for visiting corporations and groups. Joy has sailed to Antarctica and the Falkland Islands, where she saw five different penguin species as well as through the Galapagos Islands, where she swam with her friends, the playful sea lions! She has also journeyed to Peru's Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, explored Alaska's Inside Passage, and traveled through Central America aboard the luxury Silver Explorer, visiting Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala. Her goal is to help as many people as possible experience the extraordinary wildness and wonders of our planet!

What My Clients Are Saying

“I have not been out of the country since I was 12, and Joy in particular helped very much, answering my questions so that I knew how to plan, what to take, what to expect, etc. I would certainly book future trips with ExpeditionTrips.”
