Most Recent Trips
In my ten years with TravelStore, I have honed my skills planning detailed, customized itineraries. Many of these are to Europe, South America and Southeast Asia. And I can also arrange travel to virtually all countries on the planet.
Italy is a particular specialty of mine, as it will always be my adopted home. I even hold dual citizenship. I passed this fascination on to my daughter who now lives in the center of Piemonte, working in the wine industry.
France and Spain are old friends. I am registered with each country’s tourism office as a professional on travel to these destinations. Add Greece and Turkey and I have covered the Mediterranean east to west. (And I must not leave out my northern favorites like the UK and Ireland and Scandinavia.)
Having ventured further afield over the years, I now plan itineraries for South America and Southeast Asia as well. The Galapagos. Machu Picchu. Angkor Wat. Halong Bay.
Recently, I have added Africa to my list of specialties. Safari, anyone?
Closer to home, my deep roots in New England and New York are a desirable bonus. Many are asking for travel up the coast, or a few days in the Big Apple, visiting museums and seeing shows on Broadway. Let’s also keep in mind our fabulous Fall foliage cruises.
I am constantly looking for new destinations and specialties that would be attractive to you. Because I am personally interested in food and wine (I cook a LOT!), I have now added culinary experiences to my repertoire. How about cooking lessons, market tours, olive oil tasting, winery visits? Or even a cruise with a unique food or wine theme?
Travel comes naturally to me. As a child, I crawled over the world map looking for Paris….in China. Even at age 6, I knew it had to be a fabulous place, wherever it was. It took me a while to get there, even after I found out it was in France. As I grew up, I grabbed any travel opportunities that came my way: the class trip to Spain; the visit to friends in the Middle East; the research project in Italy. I finally got to Paris when I was 23. It was just as extraordinary as I had imagined.
Over the years, I have journeyed from coast to coast and back again, raising two traveling children along the way. I learned Italian and studied French, art history and literature. I worked for the Italian press and completed my Masters in Medieval History.
It’s all about passion. When I am planning a trip, I always feel I am creating my own next big adventure. It is that personal. And so is my relationship with you, the traveler. Knowing you come back happy with tales to tell is a great satisfaction for me.
If you can dream it up, I can plan it for you. Call me. I love to chat about travel!
