Learning about the wildlife in Alaska or where to find the best lemons for Limoncello in the Amalfi Coast. It's not just about the destination, it's about what we do when we get there.

My Travel Stories
Le Barthelemy started out amazing and just keeps getting better! A mere 10 months after opening their doors in 2016, they were hit by a hurricane. They focused on the positive and took the knowledge they have gained the first year in business, made some amazing improvements and reopened in October 2018,...

There are different methods to avoid lines at the airport. Some assist with SECURITY lines while others are designed to assist with CUSTOMS lines. These are very different so let's get them straight:
CUSTOMS - refers to items being brought into a country upon the return from your trip
IMMIGRATION - refers to... Read more from my Global Entry, TSA, Mobile Passport or CLEAR? story.
I wasn't a germophobe until after working in a hospital for many years. I learned the proper way to wash my hands and all about the transmission of germs. Staying healthy largely means not allowing germs to come into contact with the face (eyes, mouth and nose). Here are a few... Read more from my Staying Healthy While Traveling story.

Buffy did the hard work, we had all the fun
Thanks so much for the review! Glad you had an amazing trip!
Honeymoon of our dreams!!
Long story short, after considering countless travel agents, we decided to give Buffy a shot. And we couldn't have chosen better! She helped us take our vision of the perfect honeymoon and make it a reality. Even when I challenged her with some special requests, Buffy went above and beyond to accommodate me and more then once acted as a champion for my fiance and I when complications arose. She was always available to talk and was quick to respond to questions and requests. I even called her the morning of our flight to help me decide on a electrical adapter! Buffy was absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend her to my friends and family! Thanks Buff

Above and Beyond
Impressed with how smooth it went!
We had an amazing time & were really impressed with how smooth everything went with everything you booked for us. The concierge was super helpful & the room was beautiful. We got a nice bottle of champagne in our room :) We loved the location because it was in a quiet area but still so close to everything- we walked everywhere. Our room had a view of the water - wonderful. The room was quaint but had everything we needed for our stay. We absolutely loved the breakfast & even better that it was served on their rooftop. The agroturismo in San Gimignano was beautiful and they offered dinner which was great. Our room had really great views but was basic. There wasn’t wifi in our building- we had to go to the main building up the road. They gave us a bottle of wine when we checked out which was nice. We learned that it was important to call ahead if you were visiting a winery because they might not be able to take drops in on certain days. But really, we wanted to thank you for everything.
Wow, nice job Buffy!
I cannot thank you enough. We had a great trip. The boys and I are your biggest fans.. we walked into the Cabin at Fernie and were all saying “Wow, nice job Buffy” , the place was awesome. Thank you for taking care of the “hiccup” , the credit was very fair. I refused to wrestle with the hotel while trying to be on vacation. Finally I thought to alert you to the situation, you did your thing and made it right. Instantly I was back in vacation mode. Thank you!
Thanks for a great Jamaican Honeymoon!
Rebecca and I wanted to thank you for all your help with planning the honeymoon. Everything was amazing and we both had an incredible time. Thanks to some very generous gifts, we ended up upgrading to a master suite with butler service so needless to say, our honeymoon was as about as perfect as could be. The Club Mobay addition was a great call, especially for when we first landed in Jamaica. So thank you for that suggestion as well. I don't have Facebook, but Rebecca will certainly send over some pictures! Thank you again for everything! Chris F.
Still a few days left but wanted to THANK YOU. What an amazing place to vacation! We are having a blast! Walked into town twice for dinner, shopping and of course the fish fry. Thanks again for the help! Joe R.
Thanks for a great trip!
We loved EVERYTHING about our trip, it was amazing! Our flights were good, there was no trouble with any of the arrangements. The excursions were so much fun also, especially the ATV which wasn't my first choice ;) All we can think about is where we want to go next! I really appreciate all your help with the planning!I will have to show you some wedding and honeymoon pics next time I see you! :) Thanks again!
