We See Things In Our Mind’s Eye
She named her venture Mind’s Eye Travel because, she says, “we see things in our mind’s eye.” Working with cruise lines, hotels, tour companies and guides, Sue puts together itineraries that offer sensory experiences beyond the visual, from a hymn echoing through Notre Dame Cathedral to the roar and spray of an Icelandic waterfall to the swaying of a ropes course 30 feet above the ground.
The ropes course is where the BOEC comes in. Some years ago, Sue’s daughter and son-in-law moved to Breckenridge. Sue and her husband followed them, at first for a week or two each winter and then spending more and more time here. By chance (we like to think it was meant to be), Sue and her husband met Claire DiCola, who joined BOEC as an intern in 2004 and is now our Director of Admissions.
Claire said to Sue’s husband, Silvio, “Oh, you ski, and you know how to work with blind people—we can use you!” Silvio’s first winter as a volunteer with BOEC sold him on the ski program. And then Sue, always in search of new travel experiences, sat down with Claire to design a summer BOEC Wilderness experience to offer her clients.
Mind’s Eye Travel Comes to BOEC For Some Adventure!
The Mind’s Eye Travel group would stay in the Griffith Lodge and every day take on different high-country adventures, from the climbing wall, the ropes course and the zip-line to kayaking on the pond and whitewater rafting on the Colorado River.
