Custom Travel Services

For Curious and Adventurous Travelers


AVID NOMAD TRAVEL offers custom travel services for curious travelers. We provide unforgettable travel experiences by researching, planning, and customizing your next adventure.

Travel Experiences Have No Shelf Life. Long after the souvenirs from a trip fade, the travel experience doesn’t!

Travel has a very unique purpose and experience for every traveler. No two travelers are the same.

Which is why I work with each adventurer to individually plan, research, and customize their unique travel itinerary.

Now, more than ever, we realize what we all yearn for: novel experiences, new memories shared with those closest to us, and unforgettable stories that will be retold a thousand times.


We recall the anticipation of a new adventure, the wonder of exploring
a storied destination, or the quiet calm when overlooking a spectacular panorama.

Unique Travel

Each client and every unique travel experience has a different purpose behind it. We work to provide the most unique travel experiences for all travelers, including LGBT travelers. Avid Nomad Travel works with each client to learn why they want to visit a destination and how to ensure an unforgettable experience.

I research the many options and experiences available and which will best fit your individual aspirations in crafting a customized itinerary.

With over 25 years of personal travel experiences and periods of time residing abroad, I draw upon firsthand experiences while planning for you.

Travel is also an investment. In addition to firsthand expertise in planning, I also serve as an advocate in protecting your investment before, during, and after your journey.

We’ll start with a consultation to discover what you hope to experience and what you have enjoyed on previous travels. If you decide Avid Nomad will be a match for your travel planning, upon payment of a planning fee I will put my expertise and available resources to work. I’ll reduce the stress, guesswork, and uncertainty that accompanies travel planning. Allowing you to eagerly anticipate your departure date and enjoy your travel experience.

IF YOU HAVE ALWAYS DREAMT OF A DESTINATION OR AN EXPERIENCE
AND HAVE BEEN PUTTING IT OFF, SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION TO SEE IT BECOME REALITY.

Hi, I’m Ryan Cowden, CTA of Avid Nomad Travel and Adventure Traveler

Are you wondering, “Why that for the name of the agency?”

Beginning with a trip to Brazil in 1995, my inner adventure traveler emerged and I found myself on the go, frequently at the drop of a hat. I’ve lived and worked abroad, allowing me the opportunity to spend weeks, or even months, exploring new cities and countries.

I studied History and International Relations as an undergrad and later earned a Master of City Planning. All of which have intensified my interest in fully discovering a destination. I want to be your travel agent, let’s talk!

Client Experiences

I had two weeks and a long list of things I wanted to experience. The long haul flight is the easy part. Knowing how to move between cities and booking tours that I could trust was tough work. Ryan put a great trip together that included planes, trains, drivers/cars, hotels, tours and ferries. It was very easy to navigate Java with the planned pickups and drop offs. I can’t wait to go back.”

Client Experiences

Ryan did an amazing job in helping me plan my trip and his suggestions were great. He ensured all my flights and train connections ran smoothly from Los Angeles to Berlin, Potsdam, Warsaw, Krakow, Prague and Budapest. Not only did I feel safe traveling alone but he also checked in with me to ensure everything was going well. The accommodations were great and I stayed within my budget. Many thanks and I will definitely check with you for my next adventure. So glad our paths have crossed.

Client Experiences

I wanted to take a few minutes and thank you for all you did to plan our trip to Budapest, Vienna, Cesky Krumlov, and Prague. The girls and I had a fabulous time. The trip was flawless. Your planning and attention to detail made for an easy journey. It had been a long time since I traveled abroad and never without my husband and/or young children. It was liberating. Mariah had never been abroad and it was important to us that she have an opportunity to see what a small place the world really is. I think that mission was accomplished.”
