We Do Travel Differently

(And we have a feeling you do, too)

Before we tell you about us, let’s talk about you for a minute. 


You care more about blazing trails than buying trinkets. 

You rack up experiences, not retweets. 

And luxury?

Oh yeah, you crave it. But luxury for you is less about 4,000-thread-count sheets, and more about …

… the luxury of taking your time to dive deep into your destination.

… the luxury of exploring the sights that few tourists ever get to lay eyes on. 

… the luxury of investing in travel that truly changes you. 

Does that sound like you? Then welcome—we’re thrilled you found us. 

Let’s Go Beyond the Imaginable, Together

Co-founded by former ultra marathoners, adventure junkies, and husband and wife Paul and Sandra Wimbert, Forward Momentum does travel differently. We’ve traveled the world to cultivate strong relationships with the globe’s top independent tour guides, uncover eco-luxury resorts and boutique hotels with a strong sense of place, and bring back the insider knowledge that our clients crave.

For us, “authenticity” isn’t a buzzword—it’s the only way to travel. And we can’t wait to show you the truly authentic side of your destination. 

Meet Co-founder Sandra Wimbert

Growing up, I was actually terrified to travel. The idea of not knowing how to navigate a situation—like how to get through customs, or how to hail a taxi when I didn’t know the language—made me so anxious! I always had to plan 20 steps ahead. 

Instead of letting my anxiety hold me back, I turned it into a strength. I got really good at planning seamless itineraries that gave me and my travel companions confidence—even while we dove into new (and sometimes scary) experiences together. Since then, I’ve swam with whale sharks in the Sea of Cortez, explored the colorful souks of Morocco, sand-boarded active volcanoes in Nicaragua, and so much more. If you yearn to explore the world, but you’re worried about all the “what ifs” that come with it, let me take care of it all for you.

Meet Co-founder Paul Wimbert

After 30 years spent in the international security industry, I know a thing or two about taking (smart) risks. That’s why, on every trip I plan, I strive to push my travel clients just beyond their comfort zones—so they can see what they’re truly capable of. Because that’s what transformational travel is all about. 

My hunger for adventure has taken me to the peaks of Nepal, the depths of the Amazon Rainforest, and through the rapids of Patagonia’s frigid rivers. But it’s not just about adventure, it’s about the people I’ve met along the way who’ve shown me that we all laugh, cry, and love the same way. That’s why I’d love to design a custom journey—or have you join me for one—that challenges your mind, body and spirit … and helps you see yourself in a whole new light.
