Patti Pake

I was born to work in the travel Industry!

As the daughter of a career Air Force officer I came naturally to globetrotting. My travels began with my birth in Vienna, Austria, I graduated from high school in Japan and taught school for 4 years in Athens, Greece. About 30 years ago I decided to turn my passion into a career.

Since becoming a travel expert I have visited over 100 countries and taken numerous continuing education courses for destination specialization. My proudest achievement was being selected as 1 of 100 agents to be recognized by Australia tourism as a "Premier Aussie Specialist".

I credit my success to my relationships with my clients. Their numerous referrals confirms my high level of service and expertise.

My goal for YOU is to match your budget to your dream vacation. I look forward to the opportunity!

This is a great vacation duo. Combine the modern big city bustle of Kuala Lumpur with the beautiful beaches of Bali. Kuala is a great connecting city on your way to Bali (or other Asia destinations). My first indication that KL was going to be different than I expected was seeing their massive, beautiful airport. The city was every bit as modern and clean.

Bali is a unique destination on many bucket lists! Not only are the hotels and beaches beautiful but you have a wonderful opportunity to learn about the Hindu religion & Indonesian culture.

Within just a few days you can experience 3 cultures. First, Dutch, once you land at St Maarten's airport. Just a short drive away you'll find yourself on the French part of the island (St Martin) and a 20 minute ferry ride lands you on the English island of Anguilla!

I recently visited 2 Virtuoso properties on these island. The Orient Express La Samanna is located on a beautiful white sand beach a 15 min drive to the main city on St Martin. You'll feel like you're visiting the French Riviera. I then took one of the hourly ferry rides over to Anguilla and stayed at the romantic Cap Juluca. You'll think you have arrived at a Moorish palace. One of my favorite resorts and the perfect place for a honeymoon! Don't forget to got to Blanchards for dinner one night. Read their book first, "A Trip to the Beach"!

Since 2005 I have been honored to have been selected as 1 of 100 "Premier Aussie Specialists" in the US and Canada by Australia Tourism. This award is given to agents that have shown their commitment to this area -both in continuing education classes, creative marketing, annual attendance at Corroboree, recommendation by Australian suppliers and yearly trips to Australia. As a result of this I have also spent time in New Zealand, Tahiti and Fiji and planned many trips for people that have various interests.

Tired of the large cruise ships but don't have any friends that owns a yacht? You need to consider a Seabourn cruise. These small ships cruise the world (max of 225 suites). Although they are in the luxury market they are not as pretentious as their competition. I have sailed several times with them (Lisbon, Spain & the Canary islands; Greece, Croatia & Venice and Athens to Istanbul). Each time I was so impressed with the entire experience. If you are cruising in balcony staterooms on Princess, Celebrity or Holland America, you should consider trying a Seabourn cruise. When you add in all the inclusions (all staterooms are suites, complimentary wines and liquor, stocked bar, gratuities) you'll see it's not much more to step up to luxury!

I have just returned from 10 days in Hawaii as one of 150 agents in the US chosen to attend Hawaii Travel Exchange. I spent several days in educational sessions and private appointments with suppliers (making very valuable connections). In addition, I spent 3 days in both Kona and Oahu. As I had visited the other islands on previous trips I now feel completely knowledgeable about the differences in the various islands and feel I can assist you with your choices.
