I started traveling abroad when I was 15 years old, spending two weeks in Italy with a school group. I was absolutely hooked! I loved seeing a new place and figuring out how to get around with a language I did not know. In college I spent a semester in London, which again ignited my passion for travel and exploring.

Since my school days, I have made it a point to visit new places and see the beauty of the world as often as I can. I think it is so important as humans to learn how other people live, what other people eat, and what different cultures look like. My husband and I just spent 3 years living in Italy and that afforded me the ability to see more than I ever have before. In total, I have visited 26 countries around the world, on 4 different continents.

Some of my favorite experiences have been riding horses in Dingle, Ireland, and then going to a pub to enjoy a pint and play cards with my husband. I love being outside and being active on vacation, but look for space in each day to relax and absorb the new culture I am experiencing. If a Safari is on your bucket list, I can help there too. Having spent time in Tanzania, seeing big game animals in the wild is an experience I can’t wait to have again. And don’t forget that relaxation – after a few days viewing animals, I can help you plan some time on the tropical island of Zanzibar to swim in the crystal clear water, enjoy fresh fruit and see what Hakuna Matata is really all about.
