A "vacation" is about getting away for relaxation and rejuvenation, while "leisure travel" embodies discovery and creating memorable personal experiences. Today’s leisure travelers seek custom experiences built around new destinations and different cultures. Customizing such travel for couples, families and groups is my primary focus. As the owner of a boutique travel agency, I have carefully selected agent colleagues who share my passion for travel and my desire to serve our clients with respect and integrity. I personally have traveled in 65 countries on six continents and taken more than 40 cruises on rivers and oceans around the world. My favorite destination: you can't beat Italy, Southern France, Vienna, Barcelona, Brazil and New Zealand [not to mention London, Paris and Rome]. Understanding the world of travel, as well as the travel objectives of my clients, is vital to exceeding their needs and desires.
