Escondido, California Travel Agent
Specializing in Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, Cruises
I am a traveler and not a tourist. This distinction has made all the difference in guiding my clients to the perfect trip for them. I know that connecting a destination with a particular person is not merely making a booking but in fact customizing the journey.
Travel is my passion. Prior to becoming a travel agent, I had arranged numerous trips and cruises for family members and friends, and this skill has evolved into my business, Where To Next, a Nexion affiliate and a large consortia with many deals and specials not available to direct travelers. With my husband, Don, we have traveled in much of the US, as well as many countries in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Mexico, and the South Pacific. I do know the importance of personalized client service and am dedicated to making my clients’ travel, “a best-ever experience.” I know that anyone can book online, but for a truly dream vacation, an experienced agent is what you need, one who has professional contacts who offer special amenities and pricing not available online.
In addition, I have worked closely with the San Diego Chapter of the American Society of Travel Agents since I began my travel career, even serving as Chapter president. In that regard, I feel that my professional status is enhanced, networking with other agents in the fields of education and advocacy.
I love to put together specialized itineraries, especially to families and seniors, sending them to Italy, France, all over western Europe, Hawaii, Costa Rica, and Mexico. And of course, cruises. I specialize in smooth, seamless vacations, and one-stop shopping for all components of the itinerary, including air, transfers, accommodations, all-inclusives, auto rentals and particularly great excursions.

“What a great vacation! The train is a very relaxing way to travel and driving back we took Highway 1 and 101 and saw three lighthouses and lots of beautiful coastal beaches…Everything went well on the train, and the first night hotel van took us to the rental car place and we spent 3 days in San Francisco….Thank you so much.
