St. John expert
St. John, USVI is one of my favorite places on earth. I still remember the first time I saw it. It was a port of call on my first cruise – the S/S Norway in 1986. I remember wishing I could've stayed longer and yearned to go back. I’ve been back to vacation there over a dozen times since and as soon as I step foot there, I feel like I've come home.
So whether you already have your special place, or are still looking, there are many placed on earth including many islands in the Caribbean which I can help you make your special place. Some other places I've been to include: Aruba, Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados, Bequia, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Mustique, other Saints (St. Barths, St. Maarten, St. Thomas); and Virgin Gorda.
Not sure which island? Then I would recommend a cruise so you can visit many islands and see where you might want to return and spend more time. I’ve been on many cruises and experienced many cruise lines and love getting to experience so many destinations and only have to unpack once. Besides the Caribbean, I also have experience in Alaska, Bermuda, Hawaii, French Polynesia (Tahiti, Moorea).
In the 30+ years that I have been in the travel industry, I have booked student groups, vacations and honeymoons or personally visited Asia (Burma, also known as Myanmar; Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong and Malaysia); Europe (Belgium, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland).
Having travelled to over 35 US States and Canada, including on 2 cross-country drives, I have seen many of what North America has to offer: National Parks (Bryce & Grand Canyons, Yellowstone and Yosemite, and my personal favorites Monument Valley and Arches National Park near Moab, UT); play on Broadway in NYC; and the self-proclaimed, happiest places on earth, Disneyland and Disney World.
Why did I get into the travel business?
Beautiful Trunk Bay, St. John, USVI
I lived in Rangoon (now Yangon) and Bangkok before my family emigrated to America. Our family vacationed in many exotic places and I inherited my father's wanderlust.
While in college, I chatted with a travel agent while she input this (then) cryptic language into her computer as I was buying a ticket to Florida and it was fascinating. A few years later while trying to decide what to do with my life, I remembered that afternoon with the travel agent and recalled how happy and excited I was at the prospect of going somewhere. I decided I'd love to help someone else plan his/her vacation make someone else feel the way I did.
