Travel Agent: Leslie Borghetti
Favorite destination? Cinque Terre, Italy
Why is that your favorite destination? This is the Italy that many dream of a rugged coast topped with pastel-colored houses and lined with green terraced vineyards. Cinque Terre has dramatic cliffs, charming seafront villages and a timeless ambiance. There are five villages and each with a unique flavor and flair. With its gorgeous views, fantastic food, and rich culture, I would have to say its diversity makes it one of my favorite destinations.
What destination is on your bucket list? Norway
Why is that destination on your bucket list? I have always wanted to see the northern lights or aurora borealis. From what I understand Norway is the best place to see this strange phenomenon where green, red, purple, and blue lights light up and dance across the sky unpredictably. I would imagine it to be a completely awe-inspiring experience. I would also love to visit Norway for the magnificent Fjords, extraordinary Viking history and because it’s known to be one of the happiest places on earth.

Why should someone book their vacation with you?
“Never let your memories be greater than your dreams” I have been working as an independent and a full-time travel agent in the retail travel industry for more than 35 years. My wish is to help make the travel planning so easy that you can make the most of your time before, during, and after your trip without worry. Firsthand knowledge from my own personal travel experiences is incredibly important as an agent because it allows me to confidently guide my clients to help make their vacation dreams a reality. I’ve not only experienced but have helped plan truly unforgettable vacations: from Hawaii to Italy, from ocean and river cruises to all- inclusive resorts, independent or escorted tours. I have also gained very informative and educational feedback from my clients throughout the years that I am always happy to share. In addition, I have been handling the incentive travel business for a very large national cooperation for over 25 years, who believes that rest and relaxation make for a more productive employee while improving employee engagement and morale. They know that travel opens the mind, fills the heart, and frees the soul and I am so proud I have had the opportunity to help them achieve that. My loyal clients speak with praise and satisfaction about their cherished memories from vacations I’ve helped arrange. Whether you are a seasoned traveler or new to the experience; desire rustic or luxury, I am happy to assist!
