Bike enthusiast (and cowbell specialist)

Whether you want to enjoy riding through the scenery of Europe on a bike, or watch the pros struggle up one of Europe's famous climbs, I can help you craft the perfect bike-centered vacation. While my bike riding skill level is a solid "Coffee Shop 1", my abilities to enjoy watching a race in person are getting better every year. And when it comes to guided bike tours, I'm living proof that you don't have to be a road cyclist to really enjoy a guided bike tour. E-bikes are the Great Equalizer (just ask my husband -- he saw me glide past him plenty of times on a 7% gradient hill). I'm happy to give you my tips, and help you book the elements that will make yours a fantastic trip! (and the cowbell thing? Feel free to ask me about it!)

My Travel Specialties

Agent Specializing in European River Cruises

Life is short. The world is wide. Rivers are long.
Many people are nervous about exploring Europe on their own. And some folks have done the independent touring, and are ready to let someone else do the driving. And cooking. And planning. A river cruise is a fantastic option for either set of travelers... Read more from my Agent Specializing in European River Cruises bio.

My Travel Stories

All roads lead to Paris
Tour de France - 2013

The 100th Tour de France

The CBB (Cute Blonde Boy) and I are big cycling fans. When we realized (in about 2010) that the 100th edition of the Tour de France was coming up (in 2013), we decided to go and follow it. Tous le Tour de France. Because...why not?

Once the route was announced in October, we (rather, I) booked airfare... Read more from my The 100th Tour de France story.

Great trip to Iberostar resort in Mexico

Reviewed By Big Dave - Brighton, Colorado | Traveled to Mexico
I loved working with Pam to set up our trip to Mexico. She is a very up, friendly person. She kept us informed and up to date on changes and gave us tips about traveling. She even mailed us little cards printed up in Spanish explaining that my wife has a Gluten allergy that we were able to give to the waiters at the resort. Pam was just great.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Pam de Jong responded:
It was my pleasure to get you two set up for a great (and much-needed!) getaway. I love seeing folks in beautiful settings like that -- glad you enjoyed it.

Emergency Change of Plans!

Reviewed By Prof Dale - Texas | Traveled to France ~ Europe
We used Pam's service to plan a trip to France to attend a wedding in the countryside, and to visit other destinations along the way. Two days before we departed, my wife became very ill and was unable to travel on our scheduled departure date. This created a very complicated scramble regarding hotel and transportation reservations. Pam worked with us intensively to get all of the original arrangements cancelled and re-booked in a very short time. She researched new options for us to consider, and found solutions to a number of conundrums. Pam took into consideration that my wife needed to both recuperate and travel, and Pam's advice was spot-on at every turn (including advice that we chose not to take, and later wished that we had). We are extremely pleased with Pam's excellent service and we strongly recommend her for your travel planning.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Pam de Jong responded:
I'm gutted that you had to miss a return visit to a special location, but we can add that to the Must-Do list for a future trip. :) You're a delight to work with, and I'm looking forward to hearing stories from your next adventure!

My musical tour of the West of Ireland

Reviewed By John - Superior, CO | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Pam was so very helpful with suggestions and efforts to enhance the convenience as well as saving money where it made sense to do so. Pam was such a helpful guide that my wife and I intend to use her services for future leisure travel. When I picked up my rental vehicle at Shannon Airport, the agent said: "I couldn't rent this car to you for three days for your fee for two weeks." I said: "I have a very good travel agent." He said: "Yes, you do." 'Nuff said!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Pam de Jong responded:
It was such a pleasure to help with your self-drive Ireland adventure. I hope fond memories of the Wild Atlantic Way come to mind frequently!
