Travel moments that touch your soul

Travel moments that touch your soul

I’m still trying to absorb today’s news about the fire at Notre Dame, and the potentially-devastating damage to a building that is not only an historical and religious treasure, but the literal heart of the city of Paris. My husband and I sat at the dinner table...
Riding the Rails in Switzerland

Riding the Rails in Switzerland

Usha and Mark just returned from a fabulous trip to Switzerland where — armed with an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass that gave them unlimited use of the local trains, buses, and boats, as well as free admission to hundreds of museums — they were able to cover a...
You Can’t Instagram Fiji

You Can’t Instagram Fiji

I mean, obviously, you {can} but it’s never going to capture the real essence of the islands, and what it means to visit Fiji. Everyone knows Tahiti and Bora Bora are the social media queens.  They have all the right camera angles and lighting… the IG-worthy overwater...

Why Not?

Why Not?

Katie thought she was being a little bit “extra” with her request for a honeymoon that included a cruise AND an all-inclusive resort, but I said “why not??”  As long as we could make the dates work, it sounded like a fabulous idea to me. As you...
A Hui Hou, Hawaii

A Hui Hou, Hawaii

Hawaii has a mythical, mystical power over people. I can attest to it myself  —  I made what I thought would be my one “bucket list’ trip to the islands in 2014, went back again in 2016, and am headed there again in about two months (for what i am...
How Do We Top This?

How Do We Top This?

Is there anything more gratifying for a travel planner than to have a client come back from an anniversary trip and say “we have no idea how we’ll possibly top this next year“?? Dana and Kevin clearly loved their anniversary “escape” to...
