Why do I love being a Travel Consultant?
It’s a privilege to get to share with my clients, my knowledge and insight on what I love to do. Knowing that I can help make all the difference between a so-so travel experience and a great one means a lot to me.
My top travel picks.
Seeing the world changes a person. These are some of the places that moved me. Take a look and when you’re ready, let’s plan your next dream travel experience.
Everyone should visit the Netherlands at least once. Holland is charming, sophisticated and beautiful. There is a whole world of culture and history to discover, along with peaceful landscapes and lively cities. Holland is best discovered by bicycle. There are many cycling tours available where you can enjoy the old cities, coasts and scenery.
Insider tip: Amsterdam is a must see. But don’t miss Giethoorn, also known as the “Venice of the North.” This car-free village is great for a day trip from Amsterdam and even better for an overnight stay. Rent a “whisper boat” and travel through town by canal.
Austria may be one of the smallest countries in Europe, but it has a great number of things to see and do. It’s a gorgeous country with rich history and culture, lovely nature and scenery, charming villages and plenty of sites to keep you busy. Visit Mozart’s house in Salzburg and the Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna and enjoy awesome skiing in the Alps.
Insider tip: Take a cable car up one of the many mountains in the Alps and enjoy stunning views as you walk the trails.
Malolo island, Mamanucas islands.
Fiji is an archipelago of tropical islands on the South Pacific that offer an array of experiences and incredible adventures. You’ll find everything from exclusive private islands to all-inclusive resorts along gorgeous beaches and blue ocean waters. Enjoy hiking, diving, exploring or just relaxing.
Insider tip: Locals will tell you to get out of the touristy areas and explore. Fijians are known for being among the warmest, friendliest and happiest people in the world.
