The past fifteen years has been has been a travel paradise for me. While my job was working for the State of California (I just recently retired!), I also had a second career for planning annual family vacations. This was no easy task, as with seven brothers and sisters, three children and 18 nieces and nephews, and many friends trying to coordinate schedules, and finding the best possible deals was always an adventure. I have planned over 50 cruises for my family and friends to the Caribbean, Alaska, Mexico and Europe. I have visited over 20 countries with several more planned this year. Making travel affordable for families and friends is my passion and I look forward to being able to assist you in planning your dream vacations.
