I discovered my passion for travel late in life when my husband and I took an international work assignment in Southern Germany. Three and a half years later, we returned with memories of European capitals, castles, churches, cobblestone streets, charming villages, inspiring art, local wine and beer, skiing in the Alps, and friendships that continue to this day.
We were hooked on travel. Just a few years later, we were asked “how about Japan?” we didn’t hesitate. With two young kids in tow, we explored elaborate yet peaceful temples, quaint craft towns in the hills, skiing in Hokkaido, and staying in traditional Japanese ryokan.
Australia, Thailand, and New Zealand were our favorite destinations. The landscape in the Outback was unlike any place we’d ever seen. Our trip to Tasmania and Cradle Mountain still ranks as a ‘best ever’ adventure. Hiking on a glacier and snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef were real bucket list adventures.
That was over 10 years ago, and our travel adventures continue. Iceland, Alaska, Oregon and National Parks for hiking and adventure. The Rocky Mountains and New England for skiing and snowboarding. Family trips for Caribbean Cruises, Disney, Hawaii, and Costa Rica.
What’s next? This year – Banff National Park and Belize. Some day – the Galapagos Islands, Africa for Safari, Israel and Antarctica.
Why do I love travel so much? Absolutely the destination and immersion. I also love the research and planning process – sight-seeing highlights and getting off the beaten path. Setting a slower pace to breathe and enjoy. I love helping my clients find their True Direction for travel – whether it’s exploring far-off destinations or just a quick trip to visit family. Give me a call – I’d love to help you find your True Direction.
