I've been very fortunate to have been in the travel industry for over 25 years, and look forward to sharing with you my two favorite - and diverse - destinations New Zealand and California, and my specialty: Traveling with Disabilities.
First, we'll visit New Zealand. As a New Zealand Specialist Gold Level, I've tramped through forests, waded across snow-melting rivers, hiked up and down mountains, taken part in a snow-ball fight on The Remarkables, sat under a waterfall at Milford Sound, zipped through Skipper's Canyon on a jet boat, and stayed in accommodations that ranged from five-star+ to local farms -and everything in between - on these incredibly diverse North and South Islands.
My unique travel specialty - Traveling with Disabilities - is personal, as my aging parents have mobility issues and my sister - Down Syndrome. Having traveled with my family on numerous occasions and seeing and experiencing - first-hand - the special care they required, motivated me to become an expert and advocate, so that I can assist and help others traveling with disabilities to enjoy their travel adventures to the best of their abilities.
Now...we're heading back to California and my home state. To say that "options abound" is literally an understatement! California is home to Disneyland, Legoland, Universal Studios, professional sports teams, the world-class San Diego Zoo, and that's just the beginning. I love the outdoors and am eager to share it with you - whether it be surfing, playing beach volleyball, or watching some of the largest pods of dolphin surf off the wake of a boat! We can hike through the Muir Woods, tour wineries in Napa and Sonoma Valleys, and then grab our skis for some wintertime fun at Lake Tahoe or Mammoth Mountain. California is a BIG state, so it's important to have an expert assist you in planning your outing to ensure you can experience, do, and see everything you want to, plus having an expert arrange your accommodations to stay in the best place(s). And, all... to make sure your California getaway is filled with memories to last a lifetime!
