Jane Braun, Owner & Travel Advisor
Jane’s passion for travel took root at a young age, when her parents owned an inn in Vermont, hosting travelers from around the world. She was as captivated by stories of their homeland and travels as they were about hers. Later, this passion deepened when she moved to a village outside of London with her husband and two young daughters. Some of her favorite experiences while living abroad were cycling through the English countryside, cruising up the Nile and gazing at the Dolomites through the window of a train. From these experiences, she came to see that travel isn’t just about a place, it’s also about people and finding ways to connect with them. To Jane and her family, this combination is their ‘secret sauce’ to an exceptional travel experience.
Jane combined her 20+ years of business experience with her passion for travel, love of learning and entrepreneurial spirit. She turned that dream into reality when she launched Saddle Hill Travel and joined forces with Brownell Travel, a Virtuoso® Agency, as an independent travel advisor, to create, design and deliver exceptional travel experiences.
