My Background

Scandinavia

Costa Rica

Portugal

Tahiti

Slovakia

France

Italy

Germany

 

What I love most about travel is merging with the local culture and surroundings.  I want to inspire you to move off the beaten path and seek out the unusual, so you have the chance to see life from a different perspective and have room for spontaneous inspirations and experiences. 

For me this happened in Iceland.  With ice cleats strapped to my boots, my husband and I walked up a glacier.  I won’t soon forget the clear sheet of ice beneath my feet as I climbed, or the cup of coffee I savored back at the bottom with the group of fellow climbers.   I have experienced tent camping in the jungles of Costa Rica; swimming with string rays in Tahiti; and snorkeling the warm Caribbean waters of Mexico and the island of St Vincent.

One of my favorite geographies is Europe.  Traveling by combination train and car is a wonderful way to experience the countries and to visit the small villages not connected by train.  I have fond memories of New Year’s Eve in Slovakia, setting off huge fireworks in the town square, and another time visiting a church in Portugal with the walls covered with skulls.  

My Scandinavian heritage is very important to me and I have visited my relatives on several occasions.  What a joy when they opened their homes and hearts to us!  In what country does your family tree begin?

I would be honored to help you plan your travels.
