Around the World

My interest in world travel sparked when my mother moved our family to Barbados when I was a teenager. During the year we lived there, I fell in love with living in the Caribbean: the culture, the people, the food, schools, and of course, the stunning beaches! People have called me a Renaissance woman for my extensive insights into world traveling. My research and 30 years of worldwide travel has given me a depth and breadth of knowledge in all modes of travel: airlines, cruise ships, hotels, trains, even a communist-era Soviet bus. Consider me your personal guidebook. I can tell you where to eat in Vietnam, where to buy the best Cuban cigars in Spain, or how to score a designer bag in St. Barts. Once, I took a trip to Dubai just to experience Emirates Airlines in first class, taking a shower while I was flying over the ocean. I have lived in New York City, Ohio, Minnesota and now Scottsdale, Arizona and had careers in finance, event planning, teaching, and today specialize in luxury and special interest travel. While pursuing these various careers and getting a Ph.D., I've traveled all over the world: all 7 continents, over 100 countries, over 60 cruises, and countless group and independent tours. My most favorite trip was an around-the-world tour by private jet that took us to places like Egypt, where we rode elephants to a palace for fine dining. No matter the destination one thing is certain: traveling is life changing.
