Sunnyvale, California Travel Agent
LGBT Travel Specialist
Who doesn't enjoy a romantic getaway? Planning a trip on your own can be very tedious, the details and patience it takes in creating the perfect vacation (Let alone a destination wedding or honeymoon.) You shouldn't have to feel stressed out planning time to de-stress. When I fell in love and started the process of planning a wedding with my husband to be, I was feeling extremely overwhelmed. In the process of trying to find an expert, the problem became clear... there were no agents who specialized in LGBT travel that I could refer too. My predicament led me to do something about it.
I set out to educate myself in the industry. I am currently, Gay Wedding Institute Certified, a graduate of DWHSA (Destination Wedding and Honeymoon Specialist Association) Romance University and Travel Leaders Honeymoon and Destination Wedding program.
Starting off in corporate travel also gave me an upper hand as I worked vigorously with a major news organization, sending them all around the world on a daily basis. I was able to get first hand knowledge of the world and understand discrimination laws according to each country.
I can now say I am no longer fearful of a honeymoon turning into a disaster. I don't necessarily work in travel to sell vacations, I do it because I love helping people create memories together. I truly find happiness in helping others through this process; whether it's planning your wedding/honeymoon or even just a vacation. I am open to consultations and look forward in making your dreams of traveling with your loved one, a reality.

What's my interest in travel?
It is said "To live, is to travel" and I didn't really begin to understand this saying until I ventured out on my own. I grew up in a small town and I was naive about the world until I went away to University. I was granted an opportunity to go to school in Paris. I quickly grew fond of the country, I loved the music, the food, and the language. The romance and beauty of Paris ignited my hunger to see the world and I set out on an adventure. I traveled on my weekends off from school to neighboring countries and was addicted to travel ever since.
My Travel Experiences
Nico helped us with planning a destination wedding, he made the whole process easy for us as he took care of all the hotel details and set us up with a coordinator on site. He also offered his services to our family that needed travel to Cancun for the big day.
I needed help putting together an itinerary for my vacation to France. Nico planned the perfect trip for me. He was even available when I needed help navigating. I was not aware of how big Paris actually was until I got there. He speaks the language and helped me figure out how to get around efficiently, and showed me a handy app for my phone on how to use the metros. He recommended some great restaurants, got tickets to the museum for us and I am currently working with him to plan my trip to London and Paris round 2.
Awesome vacation. I will definitely book another one through you!
