Growing up, we didn’t go to summer camp, we travelled—whether it was driving across country and seeing the great plains transition into the rocky mountains, or heading to Europe for 6 weeks-hitting every country, we bonded as a family, learned more than we could from a book, and created memories that will last a lifetime.

My priority is to create an experience for my clients that mirror my own values and experiences -Creating memories of a lifetime!

I believe that travel, if properly planned and executed, can provide you with fulfillment that lasts long beyond the trip itself. Along with carrying memories of the time you had, you can return with lingering feelings of relaxation, renewal, inspiration and energy.​

Connecting with people from other countries is the one of the best parts of travel. We all love museums, fabulous restaurants and tours, grand hotels, etc. but the most memorable travel experiences are the people we meet along our journey-whether it is the shopkeeper in Kinsale, the boat captain in Anguilla that serves a mean rum punch, or the East Berliner who smuggled 35 people across the border, they all enrich our lives and meeting them is the best gift ever.

I want my clients to enjoy new experiences, and to develop a human connection during their travels - and enjoy the jouney!

Multi-generation trip to Ireland to find out where my father-in-laws relatives came from.
The Merrion hotel was a perfect Oasis in the bustling city of Dublin. Magical Ashford Castle, with beautiful décor, plenty of activities(they even cooked a salmon my husband caught), and best of the best service. Ballyfin-lovely picnic in the picnic house and an Irish storyteller at dinner brought to life myths and folklore of life in Ireland. Stunning intimate property-great for honeymooners

A fabulous 13 day experience with Wilderness Safaris traveling from Cheetah Conservation Fund, Etosha, where we saw elephants, a pride of lions-16 in all with cubs, zebra, impala, giraffes. Then to Desert Rhino camp, where we tracked black rhino on foot, and last stop hiked Big Daddy in Sossusvlei. The people of Namibia made the trip so special!

Italy and Switzerland
A mother/daughter trip starting at beautiful, magical Villa D’este on Lake Como for 3 nights of R and R and fabulous Italian food, a private boat ride on the lake, shopping in Bellagio for beautiful leather goods and silk scarves. St Moritz in the summer is fabulous for hiking and biking and a delicious Swiss meal. Badrutt’s Palace serving breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lake with a picturesque backdrop of the Swiss Alps. Verona for a stop to see the sights and onto magical Venice, staying at the Kempinski, which had a pool and perfect reprieve from the 96 degree heat and then onto the Danieli, where we had a beautiful meal on the terrace overlooking the lagoon with stars above.

Berlin and London
Christmas markets in Berlin are not to be missed, very festive with dancing, singing, shopping, and delicious mulled wine. Hotel Adlon is a must, overlooks the Brandenburg gate(we had a full moon) and the breakfast buffet is the best I have seen. Our Virtuoso onsite set up a meeting with a man who escaped and smuggled 35 East Germans to West Germany during WWII- truly inspirational. London for Thanksgiving was a ball, Christmas lights at Harrods, touring, and theater galore.
