Ahead of the pack - A Leader in world travel
Your personal guide to experience the world.
Optimize your vacation time. Travel made easy.
My itineraries are designed, organized, created with expertise, trust, passion, care, attention to detail and love. We travel independently with freedom and support from local outfitters who help make the most of our time away. We will free up your time by vetting and reserving local accommodations, hiring guides, booking transportation - including airport transfers, bus, train, private car and more - prior to departure. I will greet you at our destination making you feel at ease in a far away place. This is where the magic begins, as all our senses come alive. We travel together, going with the flexible flow, enjoying long days, memorable moments, incredible sights, soundscapes, deep conversations, while savoring every nuance of our experience and fully absorbing wherever we happen to be. Lots of walking keeps us active and immersed in the local traditions and cultures we explore. Be sure to keep a journal!
