European, African and Australasian Specialist
With previous employments I have traveled extensively throughout the world and can draw upon this knowledge to best advise you on your travel plans. Since retiring in 1999 and settling permanently in the US, I decided to put this unique knowledge to good use and become a Travel Agent so that I can assist others who have not been so fortunate in their travel option, to plan their travel.
With the exception of Antartica (on my bucket list) I have visited all the continents and have also lived in Europe (England, Belgium, France, Germany and Spain) South Africa and Australia. I returned from South Africa to England overland as a guide and interpreter on a Trans African expedition.
Having children and grandchildren I am a dab hand at organising family vacations ( I do one every year and the most we have had was about 30 from all regions of the world for a Bahamian vacation. This year I am organizing one for about 30 people in Palm Springs, CA.
I have also organised destination weddings and Chambers of Commerce trips to Europe, China and USA.
I pride myself in working on both simple and complex (and very complex!) itineraries. I recently completed a comprehensive tour of US for a Belgian couple which involved many flights, hotels, tours and car rentals and crossed the country from NY to LA and back again.
I have also recently completed very complex itineraries for clients who have travelled to Europe and Africa. This included all aspects, flights, transfers, local tours, hotels, train trips, and rental cars,
I am a very active member of the Ventura Chamber of Commerce and am an Ambassador. I have been Ambassador of the Year for several years, but am now letting some of the young Turks have their moments of glory!
I speak French, German and Spanish, so if there is a local problem, there are not many times that I can not make local contact and try to sort out any problems that you may have incurred.

Matthew's best Birthday!
The hotel in town was perfect! It was right on the water and was also walking distance to everything we wanted to do. The staff was amazing and every meal was delicious. We were greeted with friendly smiles throughout the hotel - in every restaurant, bar or at the pool.
The snorkeling trip was so beautiful. Our captain was very friendly and even offered to take us out a 2nd time later in the week with our friends who were coming in to join us.
The car rental was easy. We drove two hours north and explored some of the secluded beaches - enjoying fish tacos and beers on what seemed to be our private island. I'd definitely call Stephen again when planning a trip.
Check out some videos of the dolphins swimming around our boat.
Thank you very much. In these difficult times it is much appreciated
Beautiful, so much to see and do
