Travel Planner for tailor-made trips
Dear Travel Friend,
Are you looking for personalized assistance planning your next vacation?
Do you want to feel confident you have booked a carefree travel experience with all details taken care of? Then you should contact me.
Over the last 30 years I have travelled all seven continents including Antarctica. I explored the world while working aboard some of the "Dam" Ships of Holland America Line. My husband and I worked as scuba instructors on the Windstar ships in Europe and the Caribbean. I have lived in Ecuador, London, St Lucia, Spain, and Grand Cayman and speak four languages fluent.
In 2013, we moved to Key Largo and I made my own travel dream come true – by starting my own travel planning business.
I enjoy working closely with my clients, helping them find the destination and itinerary they want that is within their budget. Combining my worldwide experience and travel expertise with your travel dreams, we can build the perfect itinerary together.
The relationship with my clients goes well beyond travel planning. I like to understand your hobbies, whether you are a morning person or a night owl, what you enjoy doing in your free time – even your preferences for food and drinks. Only with that information in mind can I give you the travel planning advice you want – and deserve.
When you are working with me on your next travel dream, I will do all the research and give you the information you need to make an educated decision. I will ensure you are confident and prepared for your next adventure. You may rest easy – and enjoy more -- during your trip, as all travel components are carefully selected. And I am available to you at any time throughout your travels.
Once you are back home, I wait eagerly to hear all about your experience and love it if you would share some photos with me. It is my privilege to be able to travel through the eyes of my clients.
If this sounds like your travel dream come true, get in touch – and let us start planning your next travel adventure.
P.S. I still travel a lot myself. Ask me about the annual tour of Holland during Tulip time!
