My Background

After over 30 years as a management consultant and technology executive, Bruce shifted gears to follow his passion for travel, especially cycling and hiking along with river cruises in western Europe. He has traveled extensively, having visited France on over 20 occasions and cycled & hiked yearly for more than 15 years in France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria & the U. K.

Bruce’s cycling travel has ranged from leisurely cruising on hybrids down quiet French country lanes to climbing passes on road bikes in cycling-crazy Colombia to VIP spectating at major European cycling events. His hiking has also varied: enjoying spectacular Alpine vistas from mountain paths easily accessible via rail & mountain lifts, hiking interpretive historical routes and walking along coastal paths.

Of course, there’s more to life than cycling or hiking. As one who enjoys fine food & wine and appreciates architecture & art, Bruce can advise on a variety of rewarding itineraries in western Europe, Latin America & his native Canada.

I had inadvertently cancelled a perfectly good flight over Thankgiving only to find out with two weeks to go that I was not flying anywhere. Bruce came through for me with replacement flights and a comfortable hotel and turned a crisis into a wonderful success. Nicely done and many thanks.s

Bruce made my flight arrangements to/from Austin to Manchester England with stops in Philadelphia. I had time to make connecting flights without rushing. The AA premium economy seats were very nice. Bruce is excellent with “hand-holding” for minimally experienced international travelers. Thanks Bruce for your excellent service.
