African Safaris

Let’s talk about one of my favorite kinds of trips. There aren’t many more exotic vacations than the iconic African Safari. Experiencing the amazing wildlife on the savanna is primordial, otherworldly, unforgettable. I’d call it the trip of a lifetime, but in my experience, it can become addictive. Africa is more than three times larger…

Active Travel

Do you like adventure in your travel? From climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to glacier walking in Patagonia to scuba diving in Belize, I’ve got you covered. How about hiking hut to hut in the Dolomites? Need a little more pampering than that? How does an e-bike sound, with respites at luxury hotels where you can sip…

Let’s get that trip booked!

Due to pent-up demand, 2022 will be a busy travel year, so let’s get you squared away. My goal is for you to have the best experience possible, whether you seek adventure in an exotic land, to interact with local cultures, to expand your children’s horizons, to enjoy delicious meals and drink exquisite wines, or…

My Travel Essentials

These are all products I personally vouch for and that have really proven their value to me. A good set of luggage. I recommend hard-sided; I am a convert! Protects the contents. Most important, the revolutionizing packing cubes. I got a set for each family member (we each have our own color). These were a…

Spotlight: Switzerland

Switzerland is a jaw-droppingly gorgeous country where the cows graze happily on mountain pastures, medieval ramparts surround impossibly charming villages and Swiss people enjoy outdoor pursuits with dedication. Having lived in Switzerland and explored extensively, I can design the perfect itinerary for you, whether it be stunning scenic train rides, Alpine hiking from hut to…

Romantic Travel

So many ways to create a romantic trip! Whether you are honeymooners or just looking for a reconnection, I can help you create a great getaway that fits your budget and time constraints. A week in Paris? Be sure to get a bottle of wine, a baguette and some cheese to enjoy on the banks…

Spotlight: Guatemala

Central America is one of the best travel bargains around. Guatemala provides an excellent “bang for the buck” in terms of being a (usually inexpensive) short flight away, almost no time difference, and an incredibly rich, exotic culture to explore. With delicious food, gorgeous colonial towns and ancient villages, and a variety of climates, you…

Spotlight: Yellowstone National Park

One of the best family trips we’ve ever taken, Yellowstone – along with its smaller but spectacular neighbor Grand Teton National Park – should be high on any nature lover’s list. Due to forces out of our control, we were there at THE most crowded time… and yet, even so, it is easy to get…

Business Travel… with a side of Leisure?

People who don’t travel for business tend to romanticize it, but those who travel routinely for work know: it can get awfully tedious, and people generally just want to get back home as soon as possible. But what if you could sacrifice almost nothing and vastly increase the gratification of such travel – and even look forward…

Interested in a Sabbatical?

I’m amazed at how many people who express a desire to live abroad someday but think it’s impossible. A little creativity and some legwork can go a long way. Planning our own sabbatical was not easy – finding useful resources is a challenge – but it was worth every effort. It’s true that some jobs lend themselves more…
