About Me:

I’ve loved and dreamed about travel since I was a little girl. Every Christmas, my globetrotting cousins would visit from Virginia, and entertain me with stories about growing up in Greece, high school years in Panama, and other travels to Thailand, Paris, Africa. I sat mesmerized hearing about their experiences. Our own family adventured in Mexico, Caribbean, Quebec, and New England.

Years passed, and as a teen living in a town with snow from October to April, I would curl up with my Let’s Go Europe book, planning and daydreaming about future itineraries. Would I spend the night in Cheb? Detour to Edam for a slice of cheese and a bike ride? Get lost in the maze of Venice? As it turned out, many daydreams came true, and many more are still to come.

With over 25 years experience, my knowledge and enthusiasm, together we can create your trip of a lifetime.

A2T’s Advisor Travel Tip

– “Don’t forget to look at a map. It’s so important to memorize the neighborhoods in relation to where you are staying, and to understand the distances between points of interest and places you might be visiting.”
