Karen's long standing desire is to assist her clients in planning the best vacation or honeymoon for their individual needs.
In the last few years, Karen has traveled on several river cruises in Europe and has firsthand experience on this exciting new type of travel. She says that unpacking once and traveling from Paris to the Normandy Beaches was fabulous. Also, exploring the Rhine River and the Danube were wonderful and so easy to visit the local people and explore the history up close. Recently she traveled on AZAMARA cruising from Sweden to Estonia to included 2 nights in St. Petersburg, Russia and on to Germany and Denmark. Karen says that everyone should experience the Baltics on a cruise.
Costa Rica and Panama are coming in strong as new destinations, but if you're looking for something out of the box, then Dubai in the UAE is the next stop on your agenda.
Within the last year, Starship Travel arranged a private group trip to China and to Africa. Karen's dream was to see the Terracotta Warriors in China and they were simply amazing. Their two-week journey to Africa was an incredible experience. Karen especially loved walking with the elephants and visiting the Penguin Reserve in Cape Town.
