About Me

Favorite destination?

Usually, it is the next Destination! But, if i had to pick one it would be Paris!


Why is that your favorite destination?

It's Paris! My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful 12 days, Cruising, and touring all over Paris and its surrounding countryside. Visiting Gardens, Biking the countryside, dinning in off beat restaurants! We also spent 7 days cruising on AMA Water ways, which I would describe as magical. The boat, staff, the destinations, AMA leaves nothing to chance!


What destination is on your bucket list?

More River Cruising! And A Deeper exploration of Europe!


Why is that destination on your bucket list?

The boats bring you right into the heart of cities, and it gives you a chance to do as much or as little as you like! I love getting lost in small towns, being surrounded by history, and the vastness of the landscape!


What destinations have you visited?

Paris, Ins brook, Hawaii, Japan Tokyo to Hiroshima, Cancun, Montreal, Turks, Florida, Seattle, New England, Washington DC, San Antonio, Lancaster Co PA, Big Sky Yellow Stone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, San Francisco, Monterey.


Why should someone book their vacation with you?
