About Us

Anna, Owner/Founder - Olegana Travel Boutique

Anna, Chief Travel Consultant Owner/Founder

We are a boutique travel agency and travel consulting firm located in Bergen County, NJ. Our purpose is to help people have the most amazing time on their vacation with minimal effort planning it. We specialize in honeymoons and family vacations around the world and we are darn good at it!

I am Anna, a travel enthusiast, who has been globetrotting since I was 5 years old. I grew up in a small town in Eastern Europe, studied abroad in Spain and Israel, and lived in New York City for 16 years, before settling down in the suburbs of New Jersey.

The idea of a boutique travel company has been brewing in my head for over 10 years, throughout which I have acted as an unofficial travel advisor for friends and family. Over the years, I often caught myself window-shopping and planning “bucket list” vacations for years ahead. In my professional life, I’ve spent many years project managing, which is just a boring version of vacation planning.

I am often told that my passion for travel is contagious, so my husband and I decided that it is time to share that passion. My role at Olegana Travel Boutique is versatile. I am the Chief Travel Consultant and Agent, Itinerary Imaginator, Best-Deal Hunter and Dream Vacation Realizator.

Oleg is my husband and partner in crime. He has been subjected to the results of my travel planning for many years. We drove, flew, sailed and took trains throughout Western and Southern Europe, road-tripped in California and Canada, sunbathed in the Caribbean and Mexico, hiked through Costa Rica, wined and dined in Croatia, and beached-hopped through Hawaii. He is my inspiration, the guinea pig for testing my ideas, and the backbone of every single endeavor. Oleg’s role at Olegana Travel Boutique is the Chief Technology Geek, Travel Photographer, Engineer, Social Media Guru and my Reality Checker.

Ruben is our baby boy, our world, heart, soul, and life. He is the honorary president of our company, who one day may share our passion for travel.
