“Life is a Journey and not a Destination” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
My own journey and passion has always been about traveling, discovering and sharing new destinations. From growing up in California, Texas and Florida, working with major hotel chains like Hyatt, Hilton and Marriott, studying Hospitality management in college, my entire career has always been in travel/hospitality industry creating and managing guest experiences.
As a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) managing corporate meetings, incentives and conventions my travels and events have taken me to over 30 countries along with personal experiences with hundreds of different cultures, destinations, hotels, ships, restaurants, venues and world-wide events.
After having a child and forming family friendly group trips with her school, we found that our children were enriched by being exposed to different cultures and gaining first-hand learning outside of the classroom. There is nothing more rewarding than your child coming home from school and being excited about studying the Roman Empire and Italian Renaissance since she had just visited Italy on last summer's trip.
These family friendly group trips have taken us from Florida to Alaska to Europe and in between and include my favorite travel experience to date which was a privately arranged morning mass that took months to set up in St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican for 65 friends in June on Father’s Day. The private mass was followed by a blessing from the Pope in St. Peter's square on a sunny afternoon and concluding with yet another encounter with the Pope later that evening during an evening papal procession on the wide avenues of Rome. It was a truly amazing day loaded with many wonderful moments and small miracles including one of our friends recovering their wallet that was left in a taxi on the way to the Vatican. This magical day finally concluded with an impromptu "Gelato Party" (Italian Ice Cream) at night walking back to our hotel rooftop terrace marveling at the illuminated cathedrals, iconic monuments and grandeur of ancient Rome. Yes, timing is everything in life and also helps in travel planning!
