Travel Advisor

I love creating memorable cruise journeys and custom travel for couples, multigenerational families, and groups who rely on my expertly planned travel itineraries.

My invitation: experience the perfect balance of destination exploration and relaxation on your travels. You want to delve into a new destination or rediscover a favorite one, but you also want to come back from your travels feeling recharged, refreshed, and reconnected. A well-planned custom travel experience or personalized cruise journey delivers just that, maximizing your precious time together.

Some of my favorite travel destinations include:

  • Mediterranean
  • Caribbean
  • Pacific and Polynesia - especially The Islands of Tahiti
  • Europe - especially Italy, Germany, France, Czech Republic
  • Hawaii

For luxury and premium cruises, I partner with top cruise lines like Ama Waterways, Avalon, Azamara, Celebrity, Crystal, Oceania, Paul Gauguin, Regent, Scenic, Seabourn, Silversea, Viking, Windstar, Uncruise, and Uniworld, and know which cruises are best for your travel style and goals. I will match you with the perfect cruise line every time.

I simplify the entire planning, booking, and travel process for you by researching and preparing your travel so you can have an unforgettable journey. I take great care in ensuring you receive the best value, specialized service, and an exceptional travel experience from start to finish.

With the experience of traveling to more than 35 countries around the world and living in five countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, and England), I use my travel expertise and connections with travel partners to create moments of a lifetime tailored just to you. I excel at taking care of all the travel details for a smooth journey and extra peace of mind, every step of the way.

My process is simple:

  • We connect: We chat on a complimentary consultation call to talk about your travel style and the vacation you're dreaming of.
  • Let the planning begin: Once you take care of the planning fee and complete a short questionnaire, I craft your customized travel itinerary. You’ll receive a preliminary itinerary to review, and we’ll work together to refine it until you just can’t wait to sail away.
  • Booking made easy: Sit back and relax while I take care of all the booking details for you. You’ll receive your booking and travel itinerary information in an easy-to-review format, and you'll even get an itinerary app for easy access during travel. About two weeks before you travel, you will also receive your personal Bluetail Travel Folio by mail.
  • Ready, set, travel. Embark on your journey of destination discovery, creating travel memories to last a lifetime!

So whether you’re dreaming of exploring ancient temples while drifting down the Mekong, (re-)discovering the romance of Europe, or simply reconnecting to your loved ones while on a relaxing getaway…I am here to help you make the most out of your vacation time so you can enjoy a truly memorable journey, stress-free.

Ready to embark on an amazing travel experience that brings you closer together? Send me an email so we can set up a no-obligation, free consultation to chat about where in the world you want to explore next - I look forward to connecting!
