About Bureau of Adventure:

This newsletter is an experiment based on two assumptions:

  1. People who work in travel are starved for opinionated commentary on the business, and they’re often avid travelers themselves.

  2. Those who love to travel are curious to peek behind the curtain. They want to understand the business dynamics that create their travel products.

In that spirit, I write two types of posts:

  • Business commentary based on my research and experience in the industry

  • Travel curation and tips based on my travels and research

Subscribe to receive new posts and support my work. New posts come out weekly-ish.

About Jess Peterson

I’ve planned vacations, at scale, for 10 years. A lifelong nerd about travel, hospitality, and transportation, I started work as an intern at Carnival Cruise Line doing itinerary planning. Subsequently, I worked at Holland America Line, Windstar Cruises, and Hurtigruten Expeditions in itinerary planning roles. At Hurtigruten I also led the customer experience function and led the preliminary process for a newbuild ship.
