Throughout my formative school years, my favorite subjects were Geography and History and I dreamed of traveling to far and away places. At that time, being a stewardess was the answer for me. Unfortunately, by the age of 14, I had outgrown the height requirements as they were quite different in those days. I was too tall to be able to fulfill this dream.

After immigrating to the USA from Hungary in 1969 and many different jobs, from warehouse manager to cosmetic chemist, I decided to revive my childhood dream by entering Sawyer College of Travel and Tourism. Upon finishing my studies, I got my first full time job as a Manager of Salay Travel in Hollywood, a Hungarian ethnic agency, where I could also utilize my native language.

From there I continued to enhance my knowledge with International travel, working for many different companies, including CEO at 21st Century Travel.

Among my vast experience, I had the opportunity to learn all aspects of travel, including group and foreign independent travel, accounting and daily functions of the travel business. I even owned my agency for a few years.

Throughout my 30 years in the business, I had the good fortune to visit 4 continents, 35 countries, 26 islands and 35 states in the US. When cruising became the fastest growing part of the industry, I focused on learning everything possible about this new trend,  and was fortunate enough to experience small and large ships, sailing ships and river cruises.

If you would tap my expertise, I am at your disposal at all times, and would prefer initial contact by email, so I can get back to you in a timely manner, wherever I am at the moment.
