The Why of Agape Travel

Hi everyone.  I’m Rick Trollinger, Owner of Agape Travel of Franklinton, NC.  My partner is my wonderful wife of 24 years, Shirley.  We both love to travel; I know that is obvious.  But Agape Travel is more than a way for us to make money.  Any business can do that, it is about The Why.  We want to share our travel experiences with everyone.  We want you to come along with us, or just explore the world on your own.  But we want to be a part of that and when you get home, we want to hear about your experiences and find out what you have learned and how it impacted your life.  Our motto at Agape Travel is; “Don’t just live… TRAVEL!”  And we live and learn through our experiences.  We want to share that with you.

 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

That’s what we strive for here at Agape Travel.  To help you live life to its fullest.  We also understand that you don’t have to sail off to the high seas to live and adventure.  There are many great things just waiting for you right around the corner, over on the next block or next town.  Living here in North Carolina, there is some great places to explore and see.  History comes alive in NC.  But, if you want to expand your world, you can do that also.  Short drives to Washington DC, Atlanta, Charleston, or Nashville are simple and easy to get too with our proximity to I-40 or I-95.  If you want to farther, Amtrak runs both north and south reaching places like; New York City, Boston, Jacksonville (FL), Charlotte, and many other destinations.  But if you really want to stretch your wings, Raleigh Durham International can take you to many great cities, non-stop… Weekend in Paris?  Is that on your bucket list?

You see, if you can dream it, Agape Travel can get you there.  Oh, sorry, I think I stole part of that last sentence from Mr. Walt Disney.  But, it’s very true, we are only limited by our imaginations, well and our budget of course.  Agape Travel wants to help you reach your dreams and help you see the world through your eyes, not just photos on a computer screen.  We all love it when a book describes a scene that paints a pitcher, but wouldn’t it be better to see if for yourself?  I think so, and I know you do also.  Let us help you see those dreams.  Tell us what you want to see.  It can be in the next city, state, or another country, that’s up to you.  We want to make that happen for you and your love ones. 

Agape Travel is experiencing growth.  Our past focus has been on cruise vacations, and that will continue to be a big part of our business.  People as me, why do we love cruise vacations so much?  At Agape Travel, we want you to get the most out of your hard-earned travel dollars.  Most of the time, cruise vacations are a great value.  You unpack one time and the ship takes you to your destination(s) and at the same time, you get all the food and entertainment you want for a very economical price.  But, we understand, cruising isn’t for everyone. Over the past few weeks, Agape Travel has been educating ourselves in other destinations.  Rick Trollinger has just completed Disney’s “Kollege of Knowledge” training.  It is a detailed and comprehensive study of all the offerings of Walt Disney World in Orlando, Disneyland in California, Disney’s Adventures Travel Company, & Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, is the place to stay for a Hawaii family vacation that immerses you in local culture through Disney magic., and of course, Disney Cruise Lines.

Our training is also taking us to learn more about All Inclusive Resorts, great destination cities like; Paris, London, & Rome.  Countries and regions, places like:  Egypt, Spain, Grease, and Israel.  You see the possibilities are endless.  And we can help you get there.  We always search for the best price & tour to meet your needs and desires.  Do you have a dream?  Tell me about it, where do you want to go?  Let’s talk and make it happen.
