Travel Agent: Lelina Favazza
Favorite destination? Italy
Why is that your favorite destination? My mom and dad are from Italy so it's close to my heart. I love the people, food, culture, history, and the beauty of both the cities and the countryside. To me the best kept secret is Sicily. Most will travel to the typical cities like Rome, Florence and Venice which are beautiful, but Sicily has a culture all of its own with so much natural beauty.
What destination is on your bucket list? Galapagos Islands
Why is that destination on your bucket list? This is a destination that has fascinated me since the time I started in travel. It is so different than any other place I have visited. The wildlife and adventure of the trip is exciting to me.
What destinations have you visited? Australia, Tahiti, cruised the Panama Canal, many of the Caribbean Islands, England/Scotland, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy/Sicily, Hawaii, Mexico, Alaska, Costa Rica, US National parks along with many other destinations in the US.
Why should someone book their vacation with you? I have been told by my clients that my enthusiasm and love for travel gets them excited for their upcoming vacation. Members come in wanting to plan a dream vacation, but a lot of times don't know where to begin. Our job as agents is to guide our members and make suggestion to give them that dream vacation. I know that my years of experience give our members the comfort and trust they are looking for.
What travel industry certifications have you earned?
Pleasant Holidays Vacations
Are you fluent in a language other than English? If so, what other language(s) do you speak? I do speak some Italian but I would say I am not fluent.
One thing you’d like our members to know about you? I was born in Australia and lived there until I was 14. I always wanted a Koala as a pet but for obvious reasons my parent said no. I recently returned after 42 years away and one of the highlights of my trip was holding my Koala. It made me feel like a kid again!
