Rollin’ Down the River


What’s more romantic than cruising the Rhine River in autumn, with the one you love?  The crisp fall air and gorgeous fall colors–it doesn’t get any better!  I’m glad we opted to go in a day early and spend an extra night in Amsterdam.  The bikes, the canals, the history...definitely a must-see city!  From there we were whisked away and were awe-struck by the countless cathedrals, palaces and castles along the way to Basel, Switzerland. Standing at the entrance of the Cologne Cathedral, on Nov 11, at 11:11am– the day of their huge city-wide Carnival celebration, is a day I’ll never forget!    


 


Impressed in Ireland


Cobblestone streets, rolling green hills, mist in the air, and Guinness in hand!  My journey began in Dublin and did not disappoint.  Highlights include “Pouring the Perfect Pint”, kissing the Blarney Stone, indulging in a farm-to-table dinner with locals, gazing at the beauty of the Ring of Kerry and living life on the edge at the Cliffs of Mohr.  The icing on the cake was my very last night – sleeping like royalty in the Dromoland Castle.It’s no wonder Ireland is on so many travelers’ bucket-lists!  If you’ve always wanted to visit – now is the time. 


 


Living Like the Locals in Thailand


The bustling city of Bangkok, the secluded white sand beaches, long tail boat rides weaving around jungle-clad limestone cliffs shooting thousands of feet up from the sea.  But nothing compares to the kind-hearted, smiling faces of the Thai people.  Getting off the beaten path, seeing how they live, eating authentic Thai meals, and knowing that we were making a difference in their communities was the real treat I wasn’t expecting.  Don’t let the long flight scare you -It’s well worth it, I promise!  If Thailand is on your horizon, I urge you to go, as long as you let me help!   


 


Happy in Hawaii


Aloha!  How amazing is it you can get so much diversity in the most remote island chain in the world?!  With it’s small towns, rich history, unique cuisine and unbelievable natural beauty, each island has so much to offer.  Some of my favorite memories include tubing down a river in and out of caves, treading onto black sand beaches, seeing the sunrise at 10,000 feet and flying over the Na Pali Coast in a helicopter.  Whether you visit the islands for nature, culture, the flavors, or the rainbows, it is a destination worthy to it’s reputation.  When working with me on your Hawaiian Vacation, I will ask the right questions to narrow down which specific island(s) pair up with the vacation you are envisioning.  Don’t leave it to chance – let’s work together!


 


Aruba–One Happy Island


Picturesque. Exotic. And always hurricane free! 


Did you know that Aruba is one of the only islands in the Caribbean that NEVER gets touched by hurricanes?!  Spend your days lazily floating in the calm Caribbean Sea.  Soak up those rays of sunshine and let the gentle Caribbean breeze kiss your skin. Take a day trip and discover Flamingo Beach.  Wander outside of your resort and dine at unique restaurants.  Despite it’s size, this island has so much to offer!


 


Jamaica Me Crazy, Mon


There’s something about this island paradise that instantly puts you into relaxation mode.  The laid-back culture, cold drinks and island breeze is what dreams are made of.  Pull up a chair and listen to steel drums.  Get your float on, onboard a sunset catamaran cruise.  Want more adventure?  Go zip-lining in the jungle, jump off a ledge at Rick’s Café, or check out the impressive Dunn’s River Falls.  No matter what you decide to do, don’t worry about a thing and keep it Irie. 


 


Punta Cana


Is there anything better than sprawling, white sand beaches stretching on for miles?  How about sporadically placed, wind blown palm trees, reaching up to the heavens?  If relaxation is your idea of a vacation, look no further than Punta Cana.  The drinks are cold, the people are friendly, and the water is turquoise.  Catch a catamaran, and visit remote islands; take the backroads on an adventurous ATV excursion, or revel in history and culture with a trip to Santo Domingo.  A tropical oasis awaits you in the Dominican Republic!
