What to pack?

I'll help you plan for the weather, location and activities.

Important Papers.

I'll you know if you need a hard copy of travel information before you leave and any important documents you made need.

Why are my travel experiences important?

Because I’ve been a continuous traveler for almost three decades, and I’ve learned to look for the fine details that can add stressors to a trip, such as where the good bathrooms are, what the immigration and customs process is like, or does the hotel rooms have hairdryers.


Because I have actually been there, I know which countries are better to visit with drivers and guides and where you are okay traveling on your own.


Because I have compiled my extensive knowledge of countries for such a long time, I am the perfect person to help you plan your trips and make sure that you do not have the extra stress that comes from traveling to an unknown country.

Trusted Relationships with Local Guides, Drivers and Hoteliers.

I have a knack for continuing relationships and communicating with guides, drivers, and hoteliers that I have used before. Those long-term relationships mean that I can produce a more personalized itinerary for you than a travel agent who is just clicking on a computer and finding a hotel or driver that they’ve never spoken to and probably never will.

Attention to Details

Finally, I’m also an over-planner. This means when I plan a trip for you, I research to make sure everything is as I remember. I reconfirm the details when I book. Then right before you travel, I triple-confirm your details. Therefore, when I tell you that the guide will be in your hotel lobby at a certain time, he is going to be there. These experiences are meant to be new and wonderful, and my diligence helps to ensure that your travels will be all you imagined.

When you are a client of mine, you are part of my family.

I want you to have an amazing experience and to make once-in-a-lifetime memories. Therefore, I will take as much care planning your trips as I do for my own kids and parents.
