My Background

My fascination with travel began while growing up in Venezuela and Thailand. As a member of the Bangkok Aquatic swim team, I traveled throughout Europe and the Far East with my family, falling in love with cities such as Athens, Rome, and Vienna.

After a career in customer relations and logistics, I launched my career as a travel advisor, and have found true passion in helping my clients immerse themselves in local culture. My goal is to make sure my clients’ trips are the right fit for them. I enjoy booking travel to New Zealand and Spain, and travel often to Prague, where my daughter is a teacher.

I’ve cruised Sydney Harbour in Australia, explored both islands of New Zealand, toured Italy with my three daughters during the Xmas holidays, attended Easter Mass in the Cordoba Mosque-Cathedral in Spain, and driven the northern coast of Ireland from Galway to Dublin. 

I’ve been lucky to experience several trips of a lifetime, and my goal is to create similar experiences for my clients!

Vanessa made our trip so very special. We had transportation waiting for at the airport to take us to our hotel---no buses for us! Our flights were just right, our hotels were great and we even had notes from Vanessa at some of them. She.had alerted them that we were celebrating our anniversary so we had congratulations waiting. We wholeheartedly recommend Vanessa!

Vanessa was great to work with, efficient and flexible. We altered, added a person midway through the process, and added a day of accommodation, which she took in stride and dealt with the changes. All questions and concerns were answered and her enthusiasm eased any fears that we had. We will work with her again!

Alaska adventure

Vanessa did a wonderful job and took great care to design our trip which catered to all our wishes, including fishing and dog sledding. I could not have done it so well and really appreciated all the effort that went into making our trip smooth and worry free right up to the last minute restaurant reservations that Vanessa made on our behalf.
