Your Travel Pals!

Genni & Raquel

Out There Adventures was founded by Genni Franklin and Raquel Lottman in January of 2022! After two years of having trips disrupted by global circumstances–—and two years of planning all the trips they wanted to take when the world opened up again—they realized they could channel their passion for travel into assisting others in planning their big adventures!

As a Latina and Afro-Latina, these cousins know that your family and culture have a LOT of influence on your vacation. Having planned vacations for parties as small as 1 to family trips of 20+ members, they know those travel arrangements can be daunting.

With over 15 years of experience in hospitality and travel, and lifetimes of Orlando theme park vacations, the ladies of Out There Adventures are ready to get you out there!


Genni caught the travel bug early on, but she realized her true passion and love for travel on a family vacation to Italy during her junior year at Florida State University.

She chose to double major in Marketing and Hospitality Administration which led her to work with some of the most recognized hospitality and travel companies in the world – Hilton, Marriott, IHG, and Hyatt.

Now, she’s traveled all around the world and loves to try unique culinary and cultural experiences in every destination she visits. You can follow along with her personal travel adventures by following travelingfranklins on Instagram or reading her blog.

A true Florida girl, Raquel’s fondest memories are trips to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks with her family. Her passions were wide and varied, but she chose to focus on her love for animals.

After graduating from Brown University with a BA in Biology, Raquel went on to work with dolphins, gaining experience in guest interaction in a small theme park, before making some pivots on life’s journey.

During a rest stop in the field of education, Raquel spent those teacher summers traveling, realizing then that experiencing new adventures with the people she loves most is her true calling.
