My Background

I have always wanted to travel!!!.  In my 44 years of being a travel consultant, I have been to  every corner of the world, but in 1971,  I went to Africa for the first time, and it changed my life.  I have been there over 65 times, and each time I find more reasons to return. and when you love Africa, you have to give that knowledge to those going for the first time, so they can love "My Africa" too..   Call me and let me introduce you to the wonders of Africa.  I promise you will never go just once.  It will be the highlight of your travels forever.  I still love to cruise, and have sailed on every upscale ship, and  know which suites to recommend, and all the "in" things you want to know about them.  And being who I am, I still have to see everything new that is happening in the World.  I just  came back from India in March, and just returned two weeks ago from Cambodia and Vietnam.  Found some fabulous restaurants in Saigon.  Travel with me, and you'll live life to the fullest.

Connie was wonderful in making reservations and in her follow-up with the various entities. Our Virtuoso hosts on board ship were also great. They were Phyllis Dyer and Lyle Schultz.

I trust Connie!

The morning of our departure Connie called to let us know that our flight to Nairobi was cancelled (!) and that "they" were going to put us on a flight that arrived into Nairobi a day late. "I'm not going to let them do that!" said Connie. So she scrambled around on the phone and instead of going via, Amsterdam, we went through Paris. While waiting in Paris, we were called up to the desk and our seats were upgraded to Business Class! I suspect Connie had a hand in that? Needless to say, it was enjoyable! Our return flight went without a hitch. I have known Connie since 1971 and she has always been efficient and dependable!

Pleasure of having a trusted advisor!

Connie quickly found dates and times that fit what I wanted for my traveling Houston Oslo and back. She warned me about Frankfurt Airport being very big, and she was right. It did not display the expected German efficiency when it came to immigration procedures or good directions. Working with Connie is like working with an old friend, which in fact she is, we have known each other since 1971!
