FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are the events ticketed?

It depends on the event! Some of the bookstores require ticketed events and always include a copy of the book (among other fun stuff!). We love supporting indie bookshops! If you’ve already purchased a book, give one to a friend 🙂 

Can I get my book signed?

Yes!! Kacie will be signing books at every event. 

What will we do at the events?

It depends on the event! At many of the events, Kacie will be chatting and reading a passage from the book, before opening up the floor to a Q&A and book-signing. However, some events will have additional inclusions / activities, and some will be book-signings only – please check each details link for more information on that specific event! 


What people are saying

  • AMAZING! You covered a lot in a 50 minute session. I wasn’t expecting you to plan an entire trip itinerary but I am so glad you did! This was so valuable. After the consultation I feel excited and no longer overwhelmed with all of the decisions to make when planning a trip to Italy.

  • Kacie provided me with a lot of great options, consistently checked in with my needs, and stayed flexible to what I wanted to do. She also wrapped it up with logistics to make sure it wasn’t just a dream sheet. Thank you!

  • “Our consultation was fabulous. I was anxious and now I feel much more prepared – I feel like we could have chatted for hours! I’m so excited for my trip now. Thank you so much!!”  

  • “Our consultation was AMAZING. We feel so much more comfortable about planning our trip. Kacie was so much more thorough than we even expected. The info on trains, airbnbs, best neighborhoods to stay in, everything was extremely helpful. We’ve got our plane tickets and most of our airbnbs booked!! So glad we decided to make our trip two full weeks. Thank you so much!!!” 

  • Kacie is wonderful! The consultation was much more in-depth than I expected. I feel more confident in my planning and I have more resources available to me than just a guide book. Kacie opened up new ideas and opportunities for my family. She showed me there is something for everyone without having to skip things we really want to experience.

  • I can’t think of one thing she didn’t go over that we would’ve liked to discuss. We had ample time during the call to ask all our questions and her email breakdown afterwards was detailed and answered questions we didn’t even know we had. I’m so glad we decided to meet with her before our trip because now I feel like we’re going to have a better experience!

  • We had some anxiety around what we might be missing and were unsure about some of our itinerary, but in talking with Kacie and the write up she gave us afterward any uncertainty was calmed. She gave us a detailed breakdown of everything we need or would ever want to know regarding everywhere we’re going and even some places she recommended we hit that weren’t on our itinerary. We are so excited for our trip!!!

  • “Kacie was INCREDIBLE!! We feel so informed and even more excited about our trip. She killed it!”
