I once spent a week traveling the Galapagos with only the clothes I arrived in. (Even a travel agent’s luggage gets lost sometimes.) That can’t be any harder than helping someone plan their vacation!
I’m a native Southern Californian and have been a travel agent since 1969, following a job I had in college working for Delta Air Lines. Perhaps, working for an airline taught me to travel light: to pack my suitcase and take half of it out and leave it at home.
I have been arranging and traveling on river cruises in Europe since 2004. Rivers have been the highways in Europe for centuries, and the idea of a small, 120-passenger vessel, docking in the center of Europe’s great cities, appealed to me. Since that time, I have escorted families and small groups on several Christmas market itineraries on the Rhine and Danube rivers. I have experienced the wine regions of France in Burgundy and Provence on the Rhone River, and I have enjoyed tulips and windmills in the springtime in the Netherlands.
River cruising provides an upscale, intimate, and relaxing way to travel, and I enjoyed it so much that I have gone on to experience river cruises from St. Petersburg to Moscow in Russia, on the Nile in Egypt, and down the mighty Yangtze in China.
I can help plan your special river cruise vacation with personal insights and details from my own area of expertise.
