My Background

'We travel not to escape life, but for life to not escape us' is an anonymous quote that I love. Travel removes us from our everyday lives and gives us the opportunity to connect with ourselves as well as friends and loved ones on a deeper level. It also affords us the chance to meet new friends, have new experiences and see new places. It gives us the opportunity to step in to other's lives. 'The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page' by St Augustine is another of my favorite quotes.

My job as a travel advisor is to facilitate those experiences for my clients. With my own personal travel experiences and connections as well as my counseling background, my job is to use my resources to create those experiences that will bring deeper connections for my clients. As a breast cancer survivor, I value each day. I believe that we all want to fully experience the life that we are given. My mission is to help others read more than just one page in their own lives and create memorable and enriching experiences.

Julie is wonderful. She makes everything go seamlessly. Always there for questions & emergencies. Even tho we moved away from her area we continue to use her. Wouldn't consider using anyone else.

Fantastic Cruise Experience

By: Marge

As always, Julie Taggart is the "ultimate" in terms of her ability to arrange and schedule all of the details for any type of trip experience. Her attention to the details is fantastic -- she is with you every step of the way. We have used Julie to arrange a River Cruise "up" the Danube two years ago for a party of eight family members, and this time she expertly arrange a Celebrity Caribbean Cruise for a family party of 10 -- and this includes transportation to/from the ship, hotel arrangements prior to the start of the trip and a side trip while on one of the islands. Julie is always so positive and has developed a wonderful skill of listening to her customers and tailoring the trip while meeting all of our needs. When time permits, Julie takes many trips/excursions on her own in order to recommend to her customers travel ideas/experiences. Julie is a "gem": we would never consider using anyone else to plan special traveling experiences.

From the early planning of itinerarym Julie personally selected the cruise ports and wonderful shore excursions for my family. Her advice was all perfect- including what to pack, where to go and helpful predictions.
