I grew up in the diplomatic corps, and had the privilege of traveling the world at a very early age. 

As a former ambassador’s daughter, I've lived in diverse places such as London, England, Kingston, Jamaica, Mogadiscio, Somalia and Rome, Italy. 

This experience cemented my love and passion for travel, food, wine and art. I've also visited more cities than I can possibly count!

In 2003, I experienced a personal tragedy in my life. This event made me realize the importance of sharing my passions and celebrating life.

My goals are to provide exceptional service, always exceed your expectations, and strive to ensure that your travel dollars are spent as wisely as possible. I do not compete with internet sites for the lowest price and minimal expectations.

I organise a number of affinity group trips - including Food, Wine and Golf. See these links for some examples: "Play the Game"  "Five Continents"

I absolutely love travel because it completely changes your outlook on life, connects us to one another and turns you into a storyteller. Travel, and the ripple effects of travel, changes lives!

Please contact me directly for more information. I look forward to working with you on an amazing adventure. Don't let your dreams be dreams!

Rhine, Swiss Alps & Amsterdam River Cruise
 I had the opportunity to experience an amazing 10-day Rhine River cruise with Tauck with a pre-stay in Amsterdam. We visited a cheese farm that makes some outstanding Gouda, tasted some wonderful wine and had a memorable visit to the Porsche museum. It was also a Jewish heritage tour. I love Tauck’s Sparkling Event that always delights.

Sicily, Malta & Amalfi Coast Cruise
Small-ship cruising is definitely the way to go and Azamara Club Cruises never disappoints. I enjoyed a relaxing cruise from Barcelona to Athens enjoying ports such as St. Tropez, France, Monte Carlo, Monaco, the Amalfi Coast and, of course, Greece. Their AzAmazing Evening at the Goldoni Theatre in Florence is definitely a must do.

Bordeaux, Vineyards & Chateaux
I absolutely love river cruising and Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is an outstanding way to experience the region. As a big foodie and wine lover, I thoroughly enjoyed exploring the vineyards and chateaux in the region… and tasting the amazing wine!

Gems of Northern Italy
I always welcome an opportunity to experience Venice and Northern Italy. Uniworld’s River Countess was my home away from home as I explored Verona, Bologna, Chioggia and Padua, with a wonderful pre-stay in Milan. Did I mention that there was some incredible wine?

I always love heading to the Caribbean especially in the winter. My most recent trip took me once again to Montego Bay, Jamaica where I had the privilege of staying at the iconic Half Moon resort in Rose Hall. The historic resort has played host to numerous dignitaries, heads of state and celebrities since 1954. I also spent a very relaxing time at the beautiful adults only Iberostar Grand Rose Hall all-inclusive resort. The Iberostar resorts are wonderful for multi-generational travel since it’s all suites sister property next door caters to families.
