Bucket List Travel Specialist

I truly believe the phrase, "travel is the only thing we buy that makes us richer." To be able to travel the world and experience new things, there is no greater privilege. Let me eliminate any stress that can often times be associated with planning a trip. When you come see me, I will be your main contact from start to finish. I can assist with narrowing down a destination based on your likes and interests or I can help guide you to the best property or vacation package possible. I believe my organization, attention to detail and personal travel experience will all contribute to an unforgettable trip. Whether or not it be a family vacation, a friends getaway, a destination wedding or honeymoon, a luxurious trip away from home, a new and enlightening cultural experience or more. Let me help you check off that destination or experience on your bucket list.

My Travel Experience

A definite check off my bucket list! The Taj Mahal
A definite check off my bucket list! The Taj Mahal

I lived in Costa Rica for one semester in college. I stayed with a host family, took classes, and traveled with my classmates. Throughout the semester, I visited Nicaragua, and was able to also visit Panama twice. 

I have also travelled extensively throughout Europe, both on land and via a river cruise.

A few years ago, I did a 7 month trip around the world by myself. I visited Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and India. I planned everything on my own. 

To date, I have visited 31 countries and counting. I try and make it a goal to visit at least 1 new country each year, if not more. Traveling, it leaves you speechless and then turns you into a storyteller.

Can’t wait to book another vacation!!!!
Ceera was amazing! We were originally supposed to go on our vacation with another couple and unfortunately something came up for them. She worked so hard to make everything work out smoothly! I have nothing but gratitude for her!

Alaska and Denali
Ceera was extremely helpful. In fact, I don't know how we would have managed without her! After we initially booked the trip, one of the travelers in our party wanted to do only part the cruise portion of the journey (everyone else was doing both the cruise and Denali. She handled all the changes with Holland America -- that was great. After we paid for the trip, one of our party was no longer able to do the trip. We had insured the trip but I dreaded the hassle of getting a refund. Again -- without being asked-- Ceera handled that. She was just terrific! I would definitely book with her again!

AMAZING Honeymoon!!
My husband and I knew we wanted to go to New Zealand but didn't know where to start. I spoke with Ceera and she was very responsive and helpful. She had been to NZ and had great recommendations. We had a very easy to navigate itinerary and zero hiccups along the way. I already recommend her to friends and we will be reaching out for future trips.
