It has been my dream as long as I can remember to have a career that is aligned with travel. The next best thing to experiencing my own travel is to hear about a client’s amazing travel experience that we have created through collaborative planning. I want to be a part of the journey to make DREAM trips come true for others. I can help client’s explore destinations with my connections to the world’s best travel providers. And the best part is that every detail can be customized to your interests to satisfy all of your needs.
The things I love almost as much as traveling are thinking about traveling, talking about traveling, watching TV shows about people traveling, reading blogs and books about people traveling. I have traveled over 40 countries and have enjoyed the amazing culture, people, food, sights, sounds and places to stay. Some of my favorite experiences have been exploring my ancestors home country Italy (Matera is a must see), coming face to face with the mountain gorillas in Rwanda’s rainforest, shopping in the souks of Merrakech, staying in gorgeous restored riads within Morocco’s ancient city walls, watching the sunset over the sand dunes in the Sahara Desert and sleeping in a luxurious bedouin tent, watching the leopards and large herds of elephants roaming in Sri Lanka’s Yala national park, riding camels through the lost city of Petra, scuba diving with huge manta rays and sharks in Maldives, watching the morning mist rise from the Ngorongoro Crater from a five star lodge perched on the edge of the caldera, hiking to Tiger’s Nest in mysterious Bhutan, hiking 80km over the Salkantay pass to Machu Picchu……and much more!
