Visiting more St. Lucia options for you

Posted on September 13, 2019 at 1:30 PM Comments comments (0)

I get asked a bit why it is important to use a Travel Agent/Advisor. My answer is always that the right agent will offer first hand experience with your location, resort chain, or tour company. I know you see I vacation a lot but what you miss unless you read or look closer is often I am working too. Gone for me are the days of just relaxing and doing what I want on vacation as I try to expand my knowledge to ensure that I can best match you with your desired vacation experience. This trip to...

We just returned from St. Lucia where we started our trip off with a stay at Jade Mountain resort. If you are not familiar with this option let me paint a picture for you. The sanctuaries are all nestled along a mountain side with wonderful views of the Pitons and a sunset above the bay. Each are made all the more perfect by the fact that no wall blocks your vie...

Beaches Turks and Caicos

Posted on August 24, 2019 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)

I finally made it to my last Sandals/ Beaches resort. Turks and Caicos is as beautiful as they say and the resort offered so much for all ages.  That water was still beautiful even on an overcast day. This all inclusive family option has 4 sections to choose from with many pools, dining, and entertainment options. I was there for my continued Sandals training but I had plenty of time to enjoy all the resort had to offer a...

Hawaii Uncruise Adventure

Posted on May 12, 2019 at 9:45 PM Comments comments (0)

I have cruised the Mediterranean, Alaska, the Caribbean, the Pacific Coast but this was my first Hawaiian cruise. It was also my first UnCruise . They are a small ship cruise experience that focuses on adventure. We spent some time on land but less than on most of my previous cruises. We did conversely focus on water and animal experiences everyday. The cruise began on the Island of Hawaii and took us to Maui, Lanai, ...

Tahiti Specialist trip 2018

Posted on December 13, 2018 at 6:15 PM Comments comments (0)

la Orana (Hello) I recently returned from a Fam trip to Tahiti. I got to explore 5 of these French Polynesian islands: Tahiti, Moorea, Raiatea, Ta haa, and Bora Bora. Before the trip we had to complete the Tahiti Tourism course which gave me a good base of information on Tahiti but nothing compares to expiring the islands for yourself.

Tahiti is the largest island in the chain and the one you will likely fly into. We spent some nights at the Tahiti Nui and found it close to the shopp...

Jamaica 2018

Over Thanksgiving we were once again in Jamaica. We stayed at 2 resorts for the first time and I spent a day with the Jamaica Tourist Board to see 5 others. We did the bamboo river raft down the Martha Brae for the first time as well.

I really find that staying at the resorts gives me a better overall feel for how my clients will feel. Tours of resorts are great but give you a much more li...

 You can cruise almost anywhere in the world where there is water. It may be a river or ocean cruise. It can be on a large floating city or a smaller more intimat yacht or all the things in between. As an agent I am fortunate enough to have sailed most of the usual cruise lines. A caribbean cruise , a European Cruise from Rome to Dubai, a Pacific Mexico short cruise, and of Course Alaska. Each line has its own personality and focuses and that is where I can really help you navigate all t...
