Oh, Greek food, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. From the tangy feta cheese to the succulent gyro meat, Greek cuisine is a flavor explosion that will make your taste buds dance the sirtaki. But let’s not forget about the healthy Mediterranean staples like juicy tomatoes, fresh herbs, and heart-healthy olive […]

If you or a loved one is a golf enthusiast, Ireland is a fantastic destination, with many world-class courses to choose from. The scenery is unique and wildly varied, with castle ruins and verdant hills. 

Luxury travel in Ireland can be a truly spectacular experience, offering a chance to explore the country’s rich cultural heritage and stunning natural beauty in style and comfort. Washed by abundant rain, the country’s pervasive grasslands create a green-hued landscape that is responsible for the popular sobriquet Emerald Isle.

When you work with me to plan your travel, you get extras. Who doesn’t love extras? And when you do not work with me, you’re leaving money on the table. All my clients are frugal. No one likes to waste money. And one of the perks of working with a travel advisor is that I can extend your dollar. As a Virtuoso advisor, I can maximize the value of any trip through my relationships, connections, knowledge, advice, creativity, and advocacy.

Ireland goes by many names: the land of Saints and Scholars, the Emerald Isle, the home of fairy forts and magic, and more. This island evokes images of lush, green countrysides alongside ancient legacies of Celtic art and Druid mysticism. Ireland is rich in culture, language, and history that will give visitors a keen insight into what it means to be Irish in the 21st century.

And fictional ones, too, like those in Roman Holiday, Call Me By Your Name, Il Postino, and my all-time favorite love story – […]

Savvy travelers know the value of Global Entry, a US government program that enables expedited clearance for your arrival at a US airport when you land from international destinations. Fundamentally, the application and acceptance are a way of earning the government’s trust before you travel.  It’s totally worth the hassle. You won’t be sorry once […]

Have you heard of Pantelleria? If you haven’t, you’re not alone. I think I impressed one of the Italian partners I met with at ILTM last fall because I had heard of it. And I recently fell hard in lust for it!  Last year, I fired up the film of a favorite Italian director Luca Guadagnino (who also […]

We love to reduce as many friction points as possible for our clients and their trips. We can’t promise nothing will go sideways. But we can anticipate pitfalls and plan optimally with our inside knowledge. Travel and planning travel has always been complex. And both planning and actual travel are still mightily disrupted coming out […]
