I love to travel! I look at this "job" as a passion, not work! Having personally traveled to 25 European countries, Southeast Asia, 45 US States, Latin America, Mexico and the Caribbean gives many experiences to draw from for my clients.

My specialty is European travel. I plan city stays, tours, cruises and all transportation in between. I really have enjoyed river cruising as a great way to see multiple countries combining the larger cities with the smaller town and villages. Gliding along the scenic rivers, having local guides show me their towns and tasting yummy local specialties add to this pleasurable mode of travel. There are less than 200 passengers on the boat and plenty of time to get acquainted with your fellow travelers. Clients who try this once return again and again.

I enjoy coordinating group travel including multi generational, destination weddings and all special occasions. It is so fun to hear the delight in my clients voices when they return and tell me of their favorite moments!

Lately, I have started some adventure/wildlife travel in Alaska and Costa Rica. I look forward to my upcoming planned trips to the Galapagos and a Kenya safari!

Ireland Adventure
A small island with lots of spirit. We flew into Dublin and drove south then across the island back into Dublin. We suggest driving in clockwise pattern as everything is reversed. Take out the super CDW insurance. The Irish people are wonderful hosts with great sense of humor.
