Ski

Do you share the same love and passion for skiing that I do? Whether you are an experienced recreational skier, a thrill-seeking expert boarder, or totally new to the sport, I can build the right trip for you. My company has many years of experience planning ski trips all over the world for individuals, couples, families, and groups. I can help you plan a trip that centers around your style of skiing and level of comfort…and gets you close to the mountain life you want to experience including performance rentals, ski school, apres-ski life, and the list goes on. If you are traveling with skiers/boarders as well as non-ski lovers, I can plan a trip that keeps everyone happy. There are often destinations that have other highlights beyond skiing, and my goal is to make sure you see it all! Have a special passion for skiing on the trails of Olympians? I can put you on trips with pros that will enhance your technique. Do you prefer ski-in/ski-out lodging or even an all-inclusive ski resort? There’s even an opportunity to join fully guided trips in other countries. We visit several resorts a year to keep up with the latest snow sport trends. Most of these ski resorts also offer amazing summer mountain fun as well! There’s so much to explore from the mountains to the valleys, and our ski/board experts can help with a honeymoon, milestone celebration, or a bucket list trip of a lifetime.

Insider Tip

Want to start the day off with the warmest, driest boots possible? Pull out the liners once you're done skiing for the day; set them someplace warm to dry with crumpled-up newspapers stuffed inside to absorb the moisture so you're ready for the next day!

Health & Wellness/Spa

Do you want to experience the world as a local in the most authentic way possible? Are you active, healthy and ready to incorporate fitness and wellness into your travels? I can help you find ways to get off the ship, out of the hotel room, and into the cities, valleys, mountains, or along coastlines to experience new destinations! Whether you are eager to bike or hike through a new region, or simply prefer to take part in some yoga and spa activities, I can direct you to a part of our world that will meet your wellness goals while exploring a new region. I have been traveling since childhood to destinations all over the world. As an aging baby boomer, I have become part of the movement to stay active and healthy in all aspects of my life. I want to continue traveling – well into my 80s – and know that the only way to achieve this goal is through healthy eating, plenty of exercise and mindful practice of yoga and meditation. I have found ways to incorporate health and wellness into my own travels and want to do the same for my clients. I am confident it will exponentially enhance your vacation experience. So whether it's biking in Vietnam, spa and massage treatments in India, hiking in the Canadian Rockies, or a cruise that won't add 5 pounds to your waistline, I can help you combine your passion for travel with the benefits of health and wellness.

Insider Tip

Want to stay fit and enjoy local scenery when traveling? Most hotel concierges have a 5-mile running route map available for their guests.

Scuba Diving

Do you share the same love and passion for scuba diving that I do? Whether you are an experienced recreational diver, a thrill-seeking technical diver, an underwater photographer, or a newly-certified scuba diver, I can build the right trip for you. My company has many years of experience planning dive trips all over the world for individuals, couples, families, and groups. Whether you're a seasoned diver or even if you haven’t yet been certified, I can help you plan a trip that centers around your style of diving and level of comfort…and gets you close to the sea life you want to experience – sharks, rays, whale sharks, seahorses, and the list goes on. If you are traveling with snorkelers or non-divers, I can plan a trip that keeps everyone happy. There are often destinations that have other highlights beyond diving, and my goal is to make sure you see it all! Have a special passion for underwater photography? I can put you on trips with pros that will enhance your pictures. We sail on several trips a year to keep up with the latest diving trends and newly discovered destinations. Are you a solo traveler looking for other divers to travel with? Come join one of our group charters of 12-24 divers from all over the world, and you will leave with lasting memories and friendships. There’s so much to explore underwater, and our scuba experts can help with a honeymoon, milestone celebrations, or a bucket list trip of a lifetime.
