"I have traveled all my life but my real serious travel began in 1963 when, for my high school graduation present, I was given my first overseas trip to the Middle East Greece, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel places that were untouched by the turmoil that exists today. This led me to many years of traveling and living in and around Europe.
In 1998 a dream came true when I purchased an agency. Since then I have gone from the craziness of agency ownership to happily working as an outside agent for Starship Travel in Arlington Heights.
Today I travel for fun and business. The Caribbean has found me visiting most islands including Grand Cayman; Aruba; St Lucia; Puerto Rica; Jamaica; Grenada; and the Dominican Republic.
In Mexico I have visited many of the larger areas including Cancun; Riviera Maya; Guadalajara; Puerto Vallarta and a growing number of smaller more intimate areas including Puerto Morelos; Zacatecas; and Tequila. South of the border has found me in Panama and Costa Rica. Additionally, I have been to The British Isles; London; Stratford and Ireland. In the USA you will find me taking solo trips checking places like Charleston, Savannah and New York City, where I take theater groups
In June, I took a 10 day Azamara cruise to the Baltic Sea area where I saw amazing places such as : The Hermitage in St. Petersburg; Tallin, Estonia, the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, and Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen Denmark.
Additional trips, seminars, and conferences help me maintain current product knowledge so that I may make personal recommendations on resorts, destinations, and activities.
