"I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list."

Get to know Mary Yost

Growing up in a small Midwestern lake community, I learned about the essence of life through my strong faith background, passion for people, and enchantment with seeing the world. Today, I apply these basic principles to my role as an independent travel consultant, specializing in culinary adventures, with Mary Yost Travel. 

As a seasoned traveler, I’ve visited many countries in four continents over the past 30 years, gaining valuable insights into the various elements that create meaningful experiences. From stepping into a world of sensory inspiration in the spice markets of Margoa, India to rolling up my sleeves to experience a day of cooking alongside an Italian chef in the heart of a kitchen in Tuscany, my mission as your travel consultant is to shape memorable journeys to delight your soul and rejuvenate your mind. Through my expertise, my goal is to allow my clients to linger in cultural influences and culinary experiences that forge lasting connections with the gift of life’s offerings. 

When at home from my own travel journeys, I adore family time with my husband, daughter, and son-in-law, and 100-lb lab Chester. My greatest delights in life include gourmet cooking, entertaining, writing, reading, shopping, and spending time with friends. 

I invite you to step into one of my handcrafted culinary adventures and find a treasure to last a lifetime. I welcome solo travelers, couples, and small groups to begin the journey today.
