My Background

I’ve loved planning travel since I was a child and had a make-believe travel agency I ran with my two sisters.  My grandfather was an executive with Pan Am Airlines, so I think writing with all those Pan Am pencils finally got into my blood.

I started at En Route Travel in 2001 and every day there is an excitement of not knowing what kind of unique itinerary I will be planning.  My specialties include family vacations, honeymoons, and destination weddings.  In 2011, I planned a destination wedding for a very discerning client—myself!  My husband and I married in Ravello, on Italy’s Amalfi Coast, with our family and close friends in attendance.

Each day I look forward to assisting my clients with travel that will provide them with their own memories to last a lifetime.

Two weeks, three countries, two safaris, wine tasting, Cape Peninsula tour, fine dining and excellent accommodations!!  Everything was taken care of and flowed seamlessly while we traversed the continent of Africa!!  Tanzania, South Africa and Zimbabwe were 3 worlds we could never have navigated without the expert planning, attention to detail, and personal attention we received from Candy.  We have hundreds of memories and will always turn to Candy for our travel needs.  Thank you for the trip of a lifetime.

Candy Davis always goes above and beyond with her service. She is detailed with all the travel arrangements and no matter how complicated the itinerary everything works as planned. In Budapest we arrived early and our room was not ready.
