Bora Bora during our Paul Gauguin cruise!
I have a love for travel that began when I was a child. Back then, traveling to visit family each summer in Minnesota was our vacation. As simple as those trips were, it showed me a totally different type of life than what we had in Texas. As I grew older, my parents began to travel more and as a family we began to take trips to Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Hawaii....
I've planned many trips over the years and decided to bring my expertise to the public!
My favorite places to travel are Maui, Walt Disney World, Caribbean and cruising.
I am a Hawaiian Destination Expert for all the islands of Hawaii. I have traveled to Maui over 10 times, Oahu 4 times, the Big Island and Kauai once each. I keep current on what is new and changing on the islands.
I am a Disney College of Knowledge Graduate and have traveled to Walt Disney World in Florida 15+ times and have stayed at every level of the Disney on-property resorts. I've traveled to Disneyland in California 4 times and have stayed on property at two of their resorts. I am a bit obsessed with Disney destinations and love planning meals and activities to make a trip more memorable. There are so many fantastic restaurants and lounges on property; you could plan a trip revolving just those activities!
Cruises have also become a favorite for our family. Is there anything better than boarding a beautiful ship, not worrying about paying for your meals and you have so activities to do on the ship. If you have your children with you, they're having fun in the Kids club. Then you're visiting several ports of call and you don't have to pack, unpack and re-pack to see each destination! I've cruised the following lines and have enjoyed all: Disney, Crystal, Paul Gauguin, Norwegian, Princess, Royal Caribbean, MSC. The majority of the cruises have been to the Caribbean (Eastern and Southern being favorites). On the Crystal Symphony, we were on a back-to-back cruises that left Sydney, Australia and sailed up the East coast and over to Bali, through Indonesia and then Malaysia ending in Singapore. The cruise was one month and was fabulous!
I treat my clients trips as if I were planning my own trip. I want them to have the same experiences that I have.
