Fellow Global Traveler Travel Consultant

While wandering the globe over the last 30 years, I have enjoyed some of the finest hotels in the world and also slept over pigs in Nepal. I have spent a month trekking the Annapurna Circuit, transited Siberia aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway, walked along The Great Wall of China, climbed Mt Fuji, and rode horseback over the Mongolian Steppe.  I’ve whiled away many an afternoon in some of the best beer gardens throughout Europe. I've also seen Otzi -The Iceman in Bolzano and grizzly bears in Alaska.  I have cruised both the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, and purchased shrimp off of boats in Norway and Florida. My best attempts to converse in Spanish while in Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Colombia have met with mixed results, but I’m still trying!  So, if I haven't been there or done that, you can bet I'm at least considering it. I will plan YOUR next adventure too, no matter how near or far you plan on going.

Family Fun
Karen's expertise in travel was greatly appreciated in the planning and confirming the many details of our trip. It was so good to work with a fun, honest and knowledgeable professional travel associate. They were no worries. My family was able to enjoy all aspects of our travel knowing every aspect of our trip was going to be the best!

An Anniversary to Remember!
Karen is thorough, personable, and she really takes the time to go above and beyond! We enjoyed the most amazing anniversary trip to Japan, and Karen carefully arranged every last detail. Our visit was perfect! And we loved that Karen shared so many of her own tips and tricks for traveling to and around Japan. She is truly wonderful to work with!
