Let’s get that trip booked!

Where can you travel now or in the near future? How do you plan for uncertainty? Due to pent-up demand, 2021 is already a busy travel year, so you must book early for best availability and prices (I advise getting those 2022 trips booked too!). My goal is for you to have the best experience…

My Travel Essentials

These are all products that have really proven their value to me. Some are found on many travel lists, but others may surprise you!   First up, a scarf/shawl. I can’t tell you how glad I am when I pack a scarf. They add elegance for almost no weight/packing space, dress up or change up…

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.

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…

Travel Inspiration: 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…

Travel Inspiration: 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…
