INDEPENDENT EUROPEAN TRAVEL: I have worked for years as a European Destination Specialist, piecing together components and designing itineraries for clients and providing them with the exact trip they have been dreaming about. No pre-packaged or cookie-cutter trips with me!
HISTORY: I specialize in crafting trips that dive into a person’s heritage, suggest opportunities to step back in time, recommend accommodations filled with the past and tours where you can lose yourself in a time long ago.
CULINARY DISCOVERIES: Food is memorable, and memories are the best travel souvenirs to bring home. When people return from a vacation often their favorite stories are about restaurants, meals, snacks, and drinks. Bratwurst in Germany, wine in California, beignets in New Orleans, ouzo in Greece. All around the world, destinations are famous for their culinary items and learning about a culture through the food and drink is an intimate experience worth seeking out.
UNIQUE TRANSPORTATION (Rail, Barge, River, Safari): There is something enchanting about traveling the way our ancestors did. Travel back in time to a glamorous era on the Orient Express. Gently float down the French Canal de Bourgogne in the exquisite Fleur de Lys hotel barge. Head to your River Cruise with a mug of glühwein you procured at the medieval Christmas market. Encounter the endangered Black Rhino while on your Hemingway Safari. These journeys are for romantics, historians and those looking for a journey to another era.
DISNEY: And now we come to the outlier. Strange right? Europe, Gastronomy, History, Unique Transportation and then there is Disney. It is an unexplained passion which takes me to the parks at least once a year. I have been to Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris dozens of times and I can walk around each place blindfolded. I know the best hotel rooms, the top restaurants, special activities, favorite festivals, when to go and what to see.
I am devoted to details and look for the unique and the exceptional. The itineraries I create of my clients are as individual as they are. I am here to get to know you, to discover what will enchant you and create a trip that exceeds all expectation.
