My Background

As an independent travel advisor for Brownell Travel, I create customized itineraries with meticulous attention to detail. I love providing highly personalized service, tailored to each client’s wishes and needs. My goal is to provide my clients with unique travel experiences that will create memories of a lifetime.

While Italy and France are my first loves, my recent travels in Asia have provided me with a unique bank of knowledge for planning Asian travel. I am a certified Hong Kong Specialist. I am also a PADI certified scuba diver and love planning relaxing Caribbean getaways!

Following a career in finance and a hiatus to raise my three children, I refocused my career on my love of travel. I am the author of the blog You May Be Wandering (, where I celebrate my love of travel. Whether it’s a new hotel opening, general travel tips, or my favorite spots, I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others and hosting a community of active travelers.

The only Agent you'll ever need!

Reviewed on: 26 Jun 2016

We are recently home from a three week holiday in Europe inclusive of London, Paris, Venice, Florence, Rome, Switzerland and Germany. Sandy made this trip so unbelievably easy and fabulous. She had every attention to each detail so perfectly planned and the trip was simply amazing. The hotels were beautiful, the planned events fun and the travel to and from each destination completely flawless. I would highly recommend Sandy to anyone!

Second Time Just as Wonderful!

By: Lisa

Reviewed on: 26 Aug 2017

This past summer my two oldest sons and I made our trip to Greece, traveling there through Amsterdam with a return route through London. We are fortunate as this was our second trip to Europe and equally as fortunate in that this was our second time having it all flawlessly planned by Sandy. The attention to detail that Sandy provides to each leg of the trip is amazing. From car service at airports to flowers and champagne at hotels, from fabulous restaurants and the incredibly knowledgeable and friendly guides provided for points of interest to anything you may find you're suddenly in need of during your travel, Sandy is a rock of reliability and a real superstar at what she does. We love you Sandy!

Perfect trip to Cancun

By: Marc P

Reviewed on: 03 Jan 2018

Sandy was extremely helpful, patient, and overall a tremendous pleasure to work with. We could not be more pleased. She planned the absolute perfect trip for our family, was detail oriented, understood our budget, responded to all of our questions in a timely fashion, and most importantly, did not pressure us at all. The best experience with a travel professional we have ever had. We will use her again, and recommend her to all of our friends as well. Bottom line: A home run. Strongly strongly recommend Sandy to help with your future travel plans.

Sandy is a wonder ful travel agent! She is the most hands on agent i have ever worked with! I was texting with her the day before we left because of weather issues. She actually called the resort to see how we were doing once we got there since to see how we were doing in Harbour Isaland. Actually the manager at Coral sands said to us "you have a great travel agent"

Turks and Caicos, Florida in February

By: val

Sandy Gordsky planned a perfectly well executed February trip to the Turks and Caicos and Florida for my husband and me. Though this was our first experience working with Sandy, she well understood our goals and travel objectives. Her attention to detail during the entire trip allowed this travel experience to be exquisite. We are currently working together with Sandy to plan a Danube river cruise in May. Thank you again for the wonderful memories Sandy, it was a pleasure planning with you!

The BEST travel advisor

By: Elizabeth M

Reviewed on: 26 Mar 2018

Sandy is such an incredible travel advisor! This was the 4th trip Sandy has planned for my family and I happily recommend her to all my friends. Sandy is incredibly organized, which is even more important on a detailed itinerary, which she has done for us. Sandy is also very accessible and communicated with me while she was overseas when I had a last minute travel change, due to weather. We are already planning another trip with her for later this year!!

Great Family Trip

By: MissOlivia

Reviewed on: 05 Apr 2018

Sandy was already helping my siblings plan their spring break trip, and when we decided to join them on a portion of their travels, Sandy was instrumental in making it happen. She seamlessly handled our hotel reservation and airport transport. She checked in with us before we traveled to wish us a good trip, and she did the same upon our return. It was very clear that she was only a phone call away if we needed her. She was professional, thorough, easy to work with, and has a wealth of knowledge about Hawaii. Her experience and expertise was invaluable.

Fantastic Trip

Amazing trip Sandy! Thank you again for listening to our dreams and making them come true! We thoroughly enjoyed our AmaWaterway Melodies of The Danube River Cruise and Stay in Budapest and Munich. You Took care of everything from beginning to end. I appreciate receiving the envelope from FedEx a week before we leave with months of planning all neatly presented in organized files, folders, and envelopes. Every detail in the exact order as it will be utilized. The travel apps on our iPhones also coordinate with everything you have planned. You have made travel such a pleasure for us. We thank you for your knowledge and professionalism. We look forward to our next adventure...Italy.

Great job setting up a vacation for a family of 7. We had no knowledge of the area or any friends who had gone there, so we were thrilled that everything was perfectly planned out for us, went smoothly ,and in detail , with private drivers and guides everyday. There was no stress on what we were, as a group, going to do daily....everyday was an adventure!

Sandy's passion for what she does was evident from our very first conversation. She showed a personal interest in understanding our family and our vision for the perfect vacation in order to match us with the perfect locations and activities. Then, she delivered! Sandy managed to find the place we dreamed must have existed. Although upon first glance it appeared to have been fully committed for our dates, Sandy persisted until she secured the most ideal accommodations for our family of five. Thank you, Sandy, you helped plan a vacation with memories that will continue to warm our hearts forever!

Sandy is fabulous! She was so helpful in planning every detail of the trip. She had been to all of our cities and venues so she had enormous knowledge and was able to give sound advice. I was afraid I was taking too much of her time with my endless questions and debating, but Sandy never acted like it! She was always available, cheerful and helpful. I can't recommend her highly enough and will definitely use her services again.

WHAT A DREAM! Sandy took all the guess work and stress out of a first time trip to Paris. On very short notice, Sandy planned a beautiful trip, selected hotels that where not only beautiful, but also in the ideal location. She offered a great selection of restaurants, transportation was taken care of and very well planned. We will be using Sandy again!
