Luxury Romance Family and All Inclusive Travel
I have a profound love for planning amazing journeys for those who share a passion for travel. I feel that when one travels, they create lifelong memories. How well the journey has been planned, makes a huge difference in the resulting memories.
I feel that travel is a wonderful way to learn about the world. I love to immerse myself in a destination's history, culture, and cuisine, and at the same time, make new friends. I feel travel is elevated when shared with your partner or friends and family.
Ever since I was a little girl I loved to travel and learn about other cultures. I was fortunate enough to travel quite a bit. Not to date myself, but I've been cruising since gowns were required for dinner every evening. As an adult, I was employed by an international airline which enabled me to travel the world. I continued to travel with and without my children and to this day I travel for pleasure and also to keep informed and current in the industry.
For some, travel is about adventure; for others it is a chance to relax and decompress, and others combine the two travel styles. Combine these travel types with sampling cuisines, exploring off the beaten path destinations or visiting exotic locales, studying architecture, art, or delving into history, and the possibilities are endless. My strength is in discerning the travelers' preferences and expectations, and planning a personalized itinerary accordingly. I have a knack for finding the right destination, experience and mode of transportation for those who value my expertise. Many of my loyal clients have visited 50 or more countries, and yet I can still find new destinations for them to explore and enjoy!
I know that planning an amazing journey takes more than a few clicks on a phone or computer. Those who use online booking engines to find a "deal" have a great chance of being, at the very least, disappointed. There is a plethora of unpleasant scenarios that can result. As a professional travel planner, who stays abreast of the industry, destinations, brands and feedback, I am able to create seamless journeys. I save you time and stress, and most of all, I will ensure that the vacation you have meets or exceeds your expectations. The internet does not take into account your expectations when it plans your vacation, but I do. I will save you time, money and save you stress.
I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm and love of travel and knowledge of destinations, cruise lines, resorts, and tour operators with others. I love to see families and groups share their travel experiences with one another -- creating lifelong bonds and memories.
I curate travel for two or two-hundred (and more) -- whether by land or sea. I make use of my extensive travel, certifications and love of research to enrich the travel of others. I plan seamless, detailed itineraries, and tailor made journeys for you and yours. I'll even find the tours you'll love and make dinner reservations. That is why a travel concierge is different from a travel agent.
Whether a romantic getaway to a resort, a trip to the Galapagos or to see the Northern Lights or luxury travel by yacht, charter flights or world cruises, I handle all the details.
Being a hopeless romantic, I love helping couples plan destination weddings, honeymoons, baby-moons, romantic getaways, and anniversaries. All-inclusive resorts and cruises are a few of my areas of expertise, and I feel they are great places to celebrate these occasions, but if you have extra time, we can consider over the water bungalows of Bora Bora, Tahiti, Moorea and beyond. I will help you find the resort or cruise and destination that best fits your "travel personality" and offers the amenities and activities that best suit your wants and needs. I specialize in milestone celebrations, friends and family groups and exotic locales.
Whether you love the beach, food (epicurean), arts, wine (wineries), museums, or adventure -- or any combination of these (and more) -- I will help ensure that your next vacation is tailor made for you and yours.
My past guests tell me I know how to discern their needs and exceed their expectations. This is only possible because I get to know each traveler. This includes interests, hobbies, and expectations and taking those things into consideration, I plan a vacation that is just for you. While you go about your life and business, I do all the planning for you. I provide you with insider tips and other amenities and perks, and all you're left to do is pack your suitcase and enjoy!

Family Cruise to Alaska with Vancouver and Victori
We’re back from our Vancouver/Alaska trip and slowly acclimating to the 4 hour time difference. Everything went well, and as you may already know, the weather for the whole trip was just perfect. Actually at times a bit warm, but no humidity, which for me resulted in 2 weeks of “perfect hair”. So that was a bonus! Victoria was beautiful. A long day, but worth it. All the tour companies were great. Capilano Rain Forest was wonderful, The cruise was sunny and smooth sailing, Thank you for the bottle of Red Wine. It was perfect for our taste. We're so glad that we are in good shape for our “stage in life”, as we must have walked 50 – 60,000 steps a day! We would plop into bed at night and sleep like babies. So, in spite of eating too much, our clothes still fit the same. The highlight for all of us was the helicopter trip to the glacier. I think you saw some of our pictures. Stunning! Again, thanks for everything. I will be recommending you to friends and family.
