Introducing… Catherine

Hi, I’m Catherine…

I founded Catherine Denham Travel in 2018 after several years in public relations and marketing as a way to dive back into the field of hospitality and to help clients explore the world. I’m a first-born with perfectionistic tendencies – no detail goes overlooked (wink, wink…). My morning fuel comes in the form of a perfectly chilled Sparkling Watermelon Celsius. Blue is my favorite color, particularly the various hues blues found in the waters of the Caribbean. I’m a sucker for all things Lilly Pulitzer. I love to travel, and, while I don’t mind going solo, I’d much prefer to have my husband and two daughters along for the ride. 

After several years in public relations and marketing, I changed course in 2018, fully devoting myself to the fulfilling world of hospitality, for which I first developed a love during my time at Sea Island Resorts on Georgia’s coast. Delivering truly extraordinary travel experiences drives me each and every day and it would be my pleasure to help you discover the world!

Favorite Welcome Amenity: Anything local and unique, like the wolfhound statue meticulously crafted from Valrhona chocolate and accompanying spirits orchestrated by the Director of Chocolate and Patisserie Paula Stakelum at Ireland’s renowned Ashford Castle. I LOVE chocolate… in my next life, I want to be a Director of Chocolate and Patisserie at an 800-year-old Irish castle in Connemara! Another favorite of mine is a chilled bottle of extra brut. bone dry champagne. Delish!

Favorite Packing Tip: Packing cubes… need I say more?! Sometimes I organize by the day and other times by the piece. Either way, packing cubes help me maximize space and organization in my suitcase.

Best Airport Tip: We love organizing VIP escorts for clients upon arrival and departure to help take the stress (and long lines…) out of the equation. This is a must-do in Paris at CDG with any connection of less than 2 hrs…. trust us! Also, Global Entry and CLEAR are well worth it! Don’t have Global Entry? Ask us about Mobile Passport.

Aisle Seat or Window Seat?: Aisle… every. single. time. 

Must-Have Travel Accessories: 

  • I’d be lost without my Apple AirPods with noise cancellation on planes. I pair them with this Twelve South AirFly Pro for entertainment.
  • To know where my checked bag is even if the airline doesn’t, I rely upon Apple AirTags. Just drop one in your checked bag and check your worries at the door!
  • I never worry about a dead phone battery when I have this iWalk charger at the ready.
  • To keep me warm on a chilly plane or add color to a neutral outfit, I love these scarves by Eric Bompard. My favorite color is Glaz Blue.

I, along with the team at Catherine Denham Travel, welcome the opportunity to get to know you and your travel dreams!
