Why do I love being a Travel Consultant?

Who doesn’t love taking a vacation? Being a Travel Consultant allows me to share in some of people’s most memorable moments. It is truly rewarding to assist in planning and organizing these great memories and to collect insight and feedback from my new friends when they return from their journeys!

My top travel picks.

Every place I’ve travelled to is unique and special. But remember, everyone’s favourite place will be different. Here are three incredible and diverse destinations that I think are perfect spots and absolute must-sees.

  • Sicily, Italy Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, Italy
  • Chicago, Illinois Chicago, United States
  • Woman on sun lounger Turks and Caicos, Caribbean

Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily.

Italy

Italy is my top European pick and a must-do for everyone. From the ruins of Rome and Sicily, to the beaches of the Island of Capri, Sardinia and Calabria. From the canals of Venice, to the runways of Milan and Florence. And from the famous opera houses of Verona to the Catacombs of Palermo, Italy never stops being amazing.

Insider tip: It’s got world-famous cuisine, is rich in history, beauty and eloquence and is home to some of the world’s most famous landmarks. Its many cruise ship ports and rail system that runs from the north to the south and east to west makes this a very travel-friendly nation.

Chicago.

United States

Chicago tops my list for North America. Looking to catch a pro-sporting event? Take your pick from the Blackhawks, Bears, Bulls, Cubs, White Sox and the Chicago Fire. Is it great food you’re after? Try Chicago-style deep-dish pizza, Italian beef sandwiches or the Chicago hot dog. Art lover? Visit the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Insider tip: Take the Double Decker Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour to see the entire city and marvel at the famously remarkable architecture.

Turks and Caicos.

Caribbean

Turks and Caicos is my top Caribbean pick. For those in search of a relaxing and safe luxury vacation, Turks and Caicos is the perfect serene getaway. White sand beaches, friendly people and fantastic cuisine make it a perfect spot for families and couples. This vacation paradise gets pleasant weather year-round and the flight is less than four hours from Toronto. The most vibrant tropical fish can be found by snorkelling right off the beach.

Insider tip: Cab ride costs are calculated per person, not per ride! And be sure to bring lots of small denomination American dollars for tipping.
