My Background

Connie lived in Europe for seven years in Belgium, Germany and Switzerland, traveling extensively in Western Europe. She is passionate about history and culture so this experience was a natural springboard for her career in travel. As a professional consultant for 27 years, Connie has constantly broadened her travel knowledge and experience. She continues to add new destinations to her portfolio. Having experienced Thailand and China, her priority is now to explore more of Asia in the near future. Connie’s most recent odyssey took her to Prague and Budapest. With specialties that include cruises, adventure and European travel, Connie enjoys planning unique itineraries worldwide for families, honeymooners, and couples who want more than just a trip!

Connie did a spectacular job planning a wonderful adventure filled trip for my husband and I to Australia and New Zealand! I feel that she really listened to what my husbands and my needs were and made them into a reality. I told her we were adventurous and athletic people and the excursions we went on were exactly that! I also told her we wanted to be near the nightlife, restaurants,city and all of our accomdations were exaclty what we wanted and in great locations. Great travel agent!

Connie was really helpful - it was a fairly last minute booking & Connie put it together quickly & efficiently. I also had help changing flights (due to snow forecast) which I was very grateful for. Thank you!

We have had Connie arrange for our travel over the last 20 years.  She tailors her arrangements to the personalities of her clients.  She never disappoints!

Any place we go in this wide world,  we book with Connie.   Always completely satisfied.    And if anything should go wrong any place we are and it has,   we call Connie and she solves it for us.   One time Connie quickly changed a hotel for us when we were in Spain.    Twice we had to get home for serious health reasons, once from the South Pacific and another time from Africa,  and Connie acted at whirlwind speed.   Several of our friends are so impressed with her that they now book with Connie.  Carol and Town

I have been doing business with Connie for more than 15 years, both business and personal travel. It's hard to describe just how good she is. If she's not the best travel agent on the planet, I'm not sure who is.
