Margie Jordan 

Travel Director 

CEO at Jordan Executive Travel Service (JETS) | Social Media Geek

A travel agent that fell in love with Africa. While Africa truly is my first love, there are other amazing places that captivate me as well. India, Australia, Asia, Europe and the islands to name a few. I must admit that I do love to cruise and I take every opportunity to tour the new ships when I can.

As a travel professional and agency owner, I believe vacations should be taken every year. I create
custom itineraries for those that desire more than a hotel room and an airline ticket. Designing luxury travel experiences are my specialty. Have a group? With the stroke of a pen, custom itineraries are built for groups large and small.

Estevanico Trails

From Morroco

to

Mexico!

   Estevanico

          

 

The Estevanico story is an example of faith to overcome the many trials and obstacles that were laid before him. It’s the African American Story and the story of people of faith.  A story of hope, built on faith.  Although he arrived in America as a slave, Estevanico eventually became one of Spain’s most significant explorers.  He is a legend that is recognized in Mexico and the southwestern United States.  But, his journey began in Florida.  Estevanico was the "First African American Explorer."
