Great journeys start with very personalized planning. 

With over 30 years of experience I can arrange a trip half way around the world or something close to home keeping your best interest in mind along the way.

It doesn’t matter if you’re planning a grand journey or a cozy weekend getaway, a family adventure or a memorable vacation with several generations in tow, I have the resources and contacts to make it the trip of your dreams.

My husband is a retired corporate pilot and works with me. I’ve had the rare privilege of traveling with him by private jet on several international trips.

Although I have been all over the world my passion is Scandinavia: Norway – Sweden – Denmark – Finland and Iceland. I recently returned from Greenland and the Faroe Islands!

Experiencing different cuisines is a very important part of travel. I am on the Saveur Travel Agent Advisory board always keeping my eye open for the latest trends in culinary travel.

When I send you on your way I sit back and smile knowing you will come home with memories that will last a lifetime.

Greenland and The Faroe Islands
Walking on the Ice Cap in Greenland was amazing! We visited villages overflowing with local color. In the Faroe Islands we hiked through impossibly green hills, shopped in charming towns, and dined on wonderful food! Greenland and the Faroes are a little hard to get to but well worth it.

On my first trip we sailed on a Northern Lights Hurtigruten cruise and did Norway in a Nutshell . On this trip we zig zaged our way through countryside and along the southern coast staying at country inns and gourmet farms with a stop the famous Dalen Hotel in Telemark.

We flew in to Gothenburg and boarded the Diana, a ship built in 1931. Sailing the Gota Canal through the Swedish countryside in a very old fashioned way is truly dreamy. Ending in Stockholm, we stayed the Grand Hotel and toured one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Helsinki is steeped in history and culture but trendy fashion, exciting design and unique culinary experiences makes this city very exciting. We took a quick trip to Lapland and stayed at Kakslautnen Santa Claus Village. We can't wait to go back and stay in a glass igloo in the winter!

Although I've been to Iceland 4 times my 3rd visit was the most memorable. This trip was action packed with a visit to Eyjafjallajökull volcano, glacier hiking, caving and snorkeling in a glacier fed lake. Food is always outstanding and a massage in the Blue Lagoon ended the perfect trip.

Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
I saw what Darwin saw. I stood at the equator. I hiked a volcano. I bought an alpaca blanket. I happened on a political event in Quito. I found a hidden gem of a restaurant. I learned that the diversity in Ecuador makes it self-sustaining. What an exciting country!
