My Background

Born in Heidelberg, Germany, I came to California 34 years ago. I travelled extensively with my family when I was a child and I think that’s when my passion for travel was born. My first job out of college, with a degree in Public Administration was not what I imagined I would do for the rest of mylife!

After moving to the States in 1982 and some soul searching I decided to go into the Travel Business. Starting with a small “Mom and Pop” agency, moving through the ranks of well know travel agencies in selling and management capacities. Four years ago I decided to work as an Independent Affiliate and I am now associated with Cadence Travel.

Even so I have travelled to almost all corners of this beautiful world, there is always more to see, so I still have passion to go out and explore. Antarctica is on my bucket list and closer to home Yellowstone Park. Europe is still one of my favorite places to go and plan journeys for my clients. I try to help pick a tour or cruise that fits your interest and wishes and/or help you plan the trip to places away from the hustle and bustle of the major attractions. There are still so many places that are “secrets’ that are not featured on the major itineraries i.e. Alsace Region in France or the Italian Dolomites, just to name a few.

I also fell in love with the South Pacific, whether it is Tahiti for Romance or Australia and New Zealand for the adventurous nature loving traveler. What a great destination. Let me help you plan your trip of a lifetime to these marvelous destinations.

I have earned a CTC, which stands for Certified Travel Counselor from the Institute of Travel Agents and several “Destination Specialists” distinctions from the same Institute. Some of them are Europe,South Pacific, and South America.

I would love to help you with your next dream vacation.

Inga has always been very helpful and friendly. For all of our travel arrangements, she is always willing to go extra mile to make sure we have all we need and to make our trip smoothly and worry less. In fact I have been telling my relatives and friends to go to Inga for all their travel needs.

My wife and I never leave home without consulting with Inga first.

Fabulous Vacation

I've used Inga for several trips now.  She is very thorough in her planning ... listens to my needs and makes helpful recommendations.  Every part of the trip she planned went off without a hitch.  I'm so delighted that I met Inga ... having a good travel agent is like having a good hair stylist.  You stick with them because you are very satisfied with what they do.  I value Inga not only as my travel agent, but as a new friend.

Highly recommended

Outstanding service as always

Everything was handled perfectly. The tour to Scotland and Ireland. The airfare and special scheduling since we stopped in NYC on the return. The Hotel accommodations in NYC were located within walking distanced of most places we planned to visit. Inga went out of her way to keep us within our budget.

Italy Revisited

By: Farmer's Daughter

Reviewed on: 10 Nov 2014

We sought Inga's help to supplement our travel plans for a return trip to Italy for three weeks. We had a good idea of what we wanted to do, and Inga helped to fill in the gaps with what we needed and should do. Since we did not purchase a group tour, Inga patiently listened to our multiple needs, matched them with available options, and booked several tours, excursions, and our rail passes for our group. We enjoyed her helpfulness and immediate responses to our request. Thank you so much, Inga. It was another trip of a lifetime!

Inga arranged this cruise to perfection. Even went as much as to help me while at sea. Always willing to work with my schedule and things are arranged perfectly. So glad I was able to meet Inga and become a client.

Norwegian cruse, Hawaii

By: Hank

Reviewed on: 29 Sep 2016

Joyce and I enjoyed the trip. It was somewhat different from some of the other cruses that we have taken but it was exactly what we ask for. I have not been on a cruse that was as diversified as this one was. We met lots of people from all around the world and was able to connect positively with most of them. The food was good and all of the activities timely and available as schedule. We will definitely consider Cadence and Ingeborg again.
