US, Canada and Worldwide Travel Specialist
USA From sea to shining sea, I have visited and assisted clients with family trips, honeymoons and friends getaways to most popular US destinations including New York, Boston, Chicago, the Florida Keys, Los Angeles area, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Miami, Philadelphia and many National Parks and Monuments. I have also lived in popular Charleston, SC and East TN in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains providing valuable insider info. I look forward to helping you discover your homeland!
EUROPE A favorite destination, I have enjoyed getting off the beaten path in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, England, Greece, Scotland, Italy, Spain and Malta. I have hunted mushrooms in the Ardennes forest, sipped beer at Waterloo and historic Trappist monasteries, followed in the footsteps of “The Godfather” (Sicily) and of the Knights of Malta, enjoyed wineries, cheese and local specialties in many of Europe's regions, explored Europe’s only desert (Spain) and visited WWI and WWII battlefields, monuments and museums. I have visited towns where some of my ancestors lived and love to assist with European Heritage and genealogy travel. Whatever your interest, I am skilled in helping design your very own European experience with special, personalized moments.
CANADA Niagara Falls to the Canadian Rockies, Canada offers diverse natural and cultural beauty within easy reach. Sail the beautiful St. Lawrence River and Gulf, visit scenic Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, explore fascinating cities like Montreal, Quebec City and Toronto, channel your inner cowboy at the Calgary Stampede, sip wine on Vancouver Island or spot whales off the coast in British Columbia. Whether you prefer spectacular cities or the great outdoors - or a mixture of both - Canada is calling! And I can assist with planning your perfect Canadian vacation …..eh?
CARIBBEAN Year round appeal, fun in the sun, luxury all-inclusive resorts and private villas, iconic beaches, land and water activities, festivals, and more make the Caribbean popular. But with more than 700 islands, choosing your ideal island, resort and activities can be a bit overwhelming. Visiting Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Turks & Caicos, Cancun, Cozumel, US Virgin Islands, St. Martin, Antiqua, St. Lucia, Barbados, and Grenada have helped me appreciate the differences and unique character of each. I look forward to simplifying your vacation planning and the opportunity to help you find your Caribbean match!

My Areas of Expertise
I have visited the amazing Battle of the Bulge monument in Bastogne, Belgium twice before my Dec. 2019 visit. Each time offered something a bit special - the first visit was with my father, a WW2 Veteran who served in Europe as B17 crew and crash landed in Belgium. The second visit...

Great girls getaway
Cheryl was such a huge help in planning our small group getaway. She was great answering all of our questions and concerns, and making sure each of us felt included in the planning. Such an asset to have someone looking out for all the group and all the details. It turned what could have been a very stressful situation into a very fun trip.
Couldn't have done it without her!
I am a single mother who had saved for years to take my son on a college graduation dream trip to Hawaii. Cheryl was very understanding and patient, working very closely with me on budget, activities and all details to fulfill this dream. And the trip was all I imagined and more. I couldn't be more thankful for all she did to make this dream come true.
Best vacation ever

She has been able to expertly determine and match us with ideal itineraries, cruise lines, hotels and experiences.

Outstanding customer service!
Outstanding customer service! I highly recommend Cheryl for any travel planning needs. She booked our all-inclusive trip and her knowledge and handling of the details were remarkable and made the process so easy. She help us find an awesome resort that fit our budget.
Cheryl was able to broker a group deal that was better than we found on our own, as well as solve the 'who will book first' problem if we'd gone it alone! Also saved us $200 versus the fares we found solo. Travel agents are apparently very relevant these days!
