My Background

This year marks my 40th year in the travel business, and through all the changes I've seen, the one constant is the ability of travel to change one's outlook on life. Having traveled to many countries  over the years, I have gained an education far beyond my schooling, and love helping others gain the same insights by broadening their horizons. Asia, the Middle East, Africa, India, Australia and South America are my areas of expertise, along with indigenous cultures and wildlife which are of particular interest.

I was very nervous about leaving on this trip due to the last minute planning even though we started 6 months ahead.We were waiting on our iterenary when it was time to leave for the airport. Everything turned out OK due to the manager stepping in and bailing her out after I sent up a SOS. 

A fabulous job!

Carole helped book our rather complicated flights to Greece and Istanbul and helped us when the carrier tried to switch our booked flight. She also helped us with finding a nice hotel in Santorini.

Another perfect trip!

Our trip to Pikaia Lodge in the Galapagos was simply amazing. Although I had some doubts because the Lodge just opened in October and was still in its "soft opening" phase, our experience could not have been better. The service was top-notch, the views were unforgettable, and the islands, themselves, were nothing short of "magical." A must-consider for anyone contemplating a vacation in the Galapagos. That said, without Carole's help and patience, the trip certainly would not have been a reality. Thanks!

Carole always provides great service, and our trip to Iceland was no exception. We are looking forward to our next adventure coordinated by her - Bhutan - in a few months!
