My Background

I was born with carry-on firmly clasped in one hand and passport in the other. My journey began as a young, Canadian air force brat traveling with my family by ship, plane, train and Volkswagen magic van, wherever my nomadic father itched to take us. Didn't everyone live like that?

I’ve traveled across Canada and the USA, explored South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia, flown and cruised to exotic destinations such as Hawaii, Fiji, the South Pacific and the Caribbean. I’ve lived with the polar bears in Churchill and the kiwis in Auckland, NZ.

My niche is soft adventure and the small and intimate – boutique hotels, lodges, resorts and country inns, small ships and yachts, river cruises, and luxury trains. As a Virtuoso Travel Advisor, I have exclusive insider access and a legion of worldwide connections to make your dream vacation come true. I’ll introduce you to local guides who will divulge the secrets behind the doors and passageways where others are not permitted. From flights, accommodation, tours, cruises and safaris, I bring them all together seamlessly.

Rhine River 2013

By: Westcoaster

Reviewed on: 04 Dec 2013

Six of us (from different cities)needed flights, hotels, a week on the Rhine river and a week in the French countryside. We're all seasoned travelers, so the criteria was for something different. Wendy did a fabulous job enquiring on what we wanted to achieve and providing insight on cruise lines. Her patience was endless. Wendy had access to private tours and introductions that we'd never have found on our own. Everything went off without a hitch and was an incredibly enjoyable holiday.

Perfectly planned.

The Jamaica Inn was an excellent choice on the best beach in Jamaica. She even arranged for a meet and greet at the airport to whisk us through security in a matter of minutes. Also recommended excellent drivers to accompany us shopping.

Excellent !!

Wendy is excellent. She is so on the ball. Keeps me updated, gets me preferential treatment where possible. I have the highest opinion of her and respect for her. I will use her again and also recommend her to my friends.

Always find me the best option - no stress at all

It seems like I am always busy and in a time crunch. While I am travelling, I don't always have internet access or the ability to book things myself. Wendy takes care of everything well in advance. Even the snags that I wouldn't see coming are already taken care of. I trust Wendy to take care of everything and it makes traveling a breeze.

There when you need her

Just wanted to commend Wendy on helping us out when our holiday did not start off as planned (through absolutely no fault of her own). She immediately gave us suggestions to rectify the problem and took the step of contacting our travel provider to advise them of the situation. I am confident that if I run into problems on future travels that I book with Wendy, she will be there to advocate on my behalf. It is nice to know someone is looking out for us when we travel. Glad I found Wendy, and looking forward to working with her for many years to come.

Excellent service and going beyond expectation

Wendy made sure every detail including pre and post boarding of the cruise was discussed. She made suggestions on places to visit and was always available to answer our questions. After returning home, Wendy always follows up with us to ask about our experience. I wouldn't hesitate (and won't) to ask Wendy to plan our next vacation. Looking forward to booking our 2017 European trip though Wendy.. Thanks for all your help!

Wendy was so helpful in arranging the details of our trip. We had a wonderful time, and were treated to all sorts of perks and additional service because of Wendy's relationship with our hotel. Everything went so smoothly and took all the pressure off me to organize everything. I would highly recommend working with Wendy!
