Honeymoon and Luxury Travel Advisor

I love the Art of Traveling. The world is like a painting to admire and see. To explore and experience different countries history, try on a new culture, taste new foods, meet new people. To travel with an open mind and with the Spirit of a World Citizen. I have been in the travel business for over 30 years and have built strong relationships with tour and cruise suppliers. Also work directly with in country destination specialist companies, to build an itinerary that is best for client and meets their unique travel needs.

My Travel Specialties

Europe & Asia Escorted Tours and Customized Independent Travel

I plan many independent travel arrangements to Europe and Asia as well as book escorted tours. With my many opportunities to travel over the past 30 years, I am well qualified to assist you in making your vacations plans. Some of the great adventures I have had are exploring Western Europe by bus and rail, riding an elephant through the jungle in Chiang Mai Thailand, walking on the Great Wall of China or experiencing the high speed “bullet train” to Hiroshima Japan. The world is such a vast place with so many rich cultures to experience. I would like to help you in creating your very own one of a kind vacation.  

Luxury Cruises and River Cruises

I have booked European river cruises and Luxury ocean cruises with a wide variety of itineraries for all types of travelers, from couples, families and single travelers.  Luxury means something different to everyone and I would like to help you figure out what that means to you. I have experience cruising with Holland America on the Iberian Peninsula, Princess Cruise to Alaska, Windstar Cruise around the Tahiti Islands and Royal Caribbean Cruise 14 days in the Caribbean. I have not experienced a river cruise in Europe, but it is on my bucket list for the near future. River Cruising is designed to help you explore the most intimate nuances of your destination: its food, culture, countryside and customs. If you are planning to take the ultimate vacation, I would love to help with your travel arrangements.
