About me
I recently lived in Japan for 2 years and I have traveled the globe. I love planning unique family adventures, luxury getaways and any kind of custom itinerary you can dream up. Lux Life Magazine awarded me the honor of Best Japan Travel Advisor. I was honored by G Adventures as an Ambassador of Change for my focus on sustainable travel. I was named Rookie of the Year by my travel partners at Uniglobe Travel Center. I will take the best care of your travel dreams. My favorite travel experiences include glacier hiking in Iceland, cherry blossoms & snow monkeys in Japan, climbing inside an Egyptian pyramid, cruising in Ha Long Bay, making TikTok videos with my daughter while walking 10K on the Great Wall of China, exploring Angkor Wat, to name a few! I love to put the puzzle pieces together to make an amazing vacation experience. Let me help you plan a big bucket list adventure of a lifetime anywhere in the world. All you have to do is e-mail me to get started. I cannot wait to talk to you.
Why I love my job
I love meeting people. I believe travel can bring people together and foster understanding and inclusion. We all need exposure to the world and its beautiful cultures.
Favorite Destinations
I love all the places that I have lived and I miss every single one of them. San Francisco, Washington DC, Chicago, Osaka, Japan. Now I'm in sunny So. California!
About my most memorable vacation
My friend and I planned a FIT trip to Egypt, just the two of us. We met the most wonderful people, ate food that I can never find again and saw amazing history with our own eyes. Incredible!

Amy Freyder of Epicaway planned my Avalon Rhine river cruise last summer, including hotels and add-on days. She is up to date on the latest deals and every detail the cruise companies offer. She checks and rechecks names, numbers, dates, so that everything goes smoothly, and can go upscale or budget conscious! Amy also planned my friend with 3 kids_` trip with many city stops to Europe, tailoring tours and events during the trip to celebrate my friend_`s daughter_`s birthday. She is now planning my London_Paris to Prague river cruise. On top of all this, she lived in Japan for 2 years and went everywhere near there. Epicaway.com is my go-to.

Amy with Epic Away Travel was amazing!!! I am so glad my husband and I used her for our recent trip to Singapore and Penang Malaysia. Normally, when we go on trips, I do all of the planning so it was so nice to leave it up to someone else for a change. Amy called me and and we had a conversation so I could tell her what my husband and I like to do when we go on vacation and we left the rest up to her. Everything was perfect! She actually recommended that we go to Penang - somewhere we had never even heard of - and it was one of the best parts of our trip! I cannot recommend Epic Away enough. I have already started to discuss a trip to Japan with her that I want to take for the cherry blossoms in 2021 PLUS she just went to Iceland and has amazing ideas for that too. Worth every penny and I will definitely use her again.
