As a Travel Specialist for the United Kingdom and Iceland... I have much to share with you about these two out-of-this-world destinations.
We'll start in the UK. With my extensive experience and expertise, I've escorted numerous custom-crafted group itineraries to such favorite destinations as Edinburgh, gems of The Cotswolds, Newcastle, Kent, Aberdeen, Kyle of Lochalsh, Glencoe, Rosslyn, and Port Isaac. Whether you want to experience these enticing destinations on a personally designed tour, guided motor coach experience, or cruise ship (England), I can make it happen.
Next, let's talk about an Icelandic adventure! Do these activities sound like fun to you: A snow mobile adventure on the Langjökull Glacier? A walk through the Kerið - a dormant volcano? The view of many stunningly-beautiful geysers and waterfalls? The opportunity to experience the thermal, healing waters of the Blue Lagoon, or snorkel in bubbling hot springs? The pleasure of taking a private, guided walking
What sets me apart as an expert on the destinations of France and the United Kingdom are not only my three decades of experience as a destination specialist, but my knowledge and personal experiences of visiting, researching and learning about each of these two destinations different regions. I know the most efficient and fun ways to visit - via an escorted tour, private independent travel arrangements, river cruises, train travel, private vehicle, and/or air. Because of my long-time experience visiting and learning about France and the UK, I have developed and maintained valuable on-the-ground contacts who I depend on to keep me current on any new hotel properties, restaurants, attractions and /or events that would be of interest to you.
My expertise spans two very diverse - albeit enchanting and exciting - destinations! The UNITED KINGDOM and HAWAII. My knowledge has been meticulously assembled by frequently exploring each destination in-depth and finding new hidden gems each time I visit. I also focus on maintaining a portfolio of favorite bespoke hotels, lodges and residences along the way, taking note of the unique qualities of each one and how they might appeal to my travelers. In addition to the tools at my disposal, I nurture a network of local contacts in both destinations to keep me apprised of new lodging, restaurants and attractions that open, as well as upcoming festivals and events. All these assets combined enable me to design travel plans that are tailored exactly to the wishes and priorities of each client.

I've been in the travel business for many years. And when asked my favorite destination in the world, I always answer SCOTLAND! The history, the natural beauty of the countryside, the castles especially Inveraray and Edinburgh, and the great food - including fresh seafood, Scottish favorites such haggis, bangers, and mash; plus, the true Scottish dessert - shortbread. Other reasons you'll love Scotland is the opportunity to self-drive, island-hop from island to island (an amazing opportunity); tour famous, historic cities such as Edinburgh and in Glasgow where you can spend time in the West End known for quaint shops and lots of parks, and the opportunity to view the magnificent art and architecture of the Victorian era. There is more to see and do for both Harry Potter fans and Outlander, and for those who hope to see the mystical monster Nessie when you stop at Loch Ness.

The only thing I enjoy as much as traveling is sending you out to see to see the world yourself! I love helping others learn from, experience, and enjoy theirs much as I do. During my career, I've established two specialties: destination travel to the UNITED KINGDOM and special interest travel for HONEYMOONS/ROMANCE. Every itinerary I create is unique, personal, and completely designed just for you. My goal is to take the time to get to know your destination interests and travel style to create a seamless, stress-free, and memorable journey. My reward is knowing that you will return home happy, energized, and asking, "Where are we going next?"

Scotland is my passion! I want to share with you this country's ancient landscapes and fascinating history, the beautiful city of Glasgow, what it's like to enjoy tea and brunch in a castle, while viewing Ben Nevis - Scotland's highest mountain; exploring Loch Ness by boat and searching for the infamous "Nessie." Next, we'll take a steam train excursion, see the Isle of Skye and the "must visit" Eileen Donan Castle. You'll also want to visit Balmoral Castle and walk the grounds of the private church where the Royal Family worships when visiting here; experience Gleneagles, visit a distillery and enjoy a dram, tour Edinburgh - aka "Athens of the North," plus visit the cemetery where J.K. Rowling found her inspiration and got the names of her characters from tombstones.
