We had a wonderful trip to England. Everything went swimmingly. Transfers all worked out, terrific service. Hotel was excellent, good food, terrific museums. The inns on the Backroads hike were all 5-star properties, highly recommended. Thanks for all your help with this trip. We already are planning our return.

The 130,000 miles or so I fly yearly are my magic carpet rides to adventure and excitement, a way of keeping life fresh and relevant. My passion for travel is as much a part of me as any part of my body. Now up to 105 countries, there is still no place I have visited that I would not visit again. The diversity of this planet, its architecture, cultures and people are celebrated every time I go on a trip. Still I try to add at least one new country every year as well as returning to old favorites.
I’ve been a travel agent since 1978 thanks to the persistence of my cousin who was a travel agent. I love custom designing vacations that best fit your requirements. I also like to present you with exciting experiences you might otherwise have missed had you not had the input of a professional travel advisor.
Some of my favorite travel experiences have been climbing the Great Wall of China, exploring the Potala Palace in Lhasa Tibet, climbing into the Great Pyramid in Giza and seeing every star in the sky from the Amazon Clipper outside Manaus, Brazil.
I have an undeniable fervor for every aspect of the travel experience; the planes, trains and ships that transport you and the unique and special accommodations, from a tent to a 5-star hotel or resort. After 4 years in the Air Force, I became a commercial plane enthusiast. In 2006 it was a thrill for me to attend the Farnborough Air Show outside London, where I was able to get an exclusive, inside tour of an A380 test aircraft from an Airbus test pilot.
I like to remind my clients that many times it’s what you don’t know that makes the difference between an “off-the-shelf” travel experience that has been done a dozen times before and a unique and stimulating adventure that will stay with you forever.
