Greece

Going to Greece was like coming home. I have explored not just the islands extensively, but also the mainland. The Peloponnesian peninsula is so full of breathtaking art and amazing history, that it is a shame more people don't see it on their trip. But if you’re looking for a balance of island life and history, never fear! Whether you want to see the well-known party town of Mykonos, the serene beauty of Santorini, or go off the beaten track to places like Paros, Naxos, or Kos, I have probably been there, done that! From honeymoons to families, touring to cruises, independent travel to private yachts, there is nothing I CAN'T do! Call me!

Insider Tip

Crete is more than the beach! It is home to ancient Minoan society. Although most people are familiar with the Palace of Knossos, a lesser known area, complete with cemetery.

Thailand
Thailand

The first time I went to Thailand, I fell in love with the country! Thai food is one of my favorite cuisines, and it's even better when you can enjoy it as a local, with everything prepared with such fresh ingredients. Then there is all the history to experience and see, such as the magnificent Grand Palace, Ayutthaya (a modern city filled with archaeological wonders), Wat Pho (one of Bangkok's oldest temples), as well as many other ancient and historic temples and attractions. The majority of the Thai population are Buddhist. Their strong beliefs in the Buddhist religion are a big part of their history, good demeanor and positive attitude. Other sights to see include the elephant reserves up in the North. I love animals, and the elephants are such beautiful creatures as well as Thailand's national animal. For outdoor activities, look forward to enjoying lovely beaches and most every kind of outdoor activity. Two of the most popular destinations are lively Phuket - featuring lots of restaurants, bars and fun activities; and tranquil Krabi showcasing beautiful beaches. Don't miss Koh Samui, where you can attend "the world's largest full-moon beach party" that attracts visitors from all over the world! For me, Thailand is the full package that offers something for everyone. Whenever I travel to Southeast Asia, I always include a visit to Thailand as part of my Asian adventure; let me help you plan yours!

Besides the beaches, there is much to do, such as whale watching, ATV adventures, snorkeling, camel rides, etc. Have a family or graduation group?

I have been to Alaska many times through out my career in different fashions, by cruise, land, and train. Some people think Alaska is just a cruise destination. But once you have seen it the way I have, you will understand. Cruising is a great way to see Alaska and their are many options, small ships, and larger ships. By land, there are many lodges with different experiences. Fishing, animal watching, hiking, etc. You need an expert to help you choose the best fit for what you are looking for. That is me.
