Travel Advisor: Maureen Dalton
Favorite destination? Ireland
Why is that your favorite destination? The people are so friendly! They can tell you stories to keep you entertained for days! The countryside is gorgeous. It is so green and lush. There is history to explore everywhere, and there is fine dining and shopping if that's what you're looking for. My kids and I especially love Killarney, as that's where my son-in-law proposed to my daughter. They took a bike ride to the Torc Waterfall in the National Park, where he took her out on the rocks to propose! It's a time we'll never forget.
What destination is on your bucket list? Vietnam and Cambodia
Why is that destination on your bucket list? I would love to travel to places where the culture is vastly different from our own. There is so much beauty and history there. I would love to see Angkor Wat, known for its religious and architectural significance.
What destinations have you visited? Italy and Ireland are two favorites. I also love Budapest, Hungary, and Prague, Czech Republic. I was there at Christmas time on a Danube River cruise. I have also cruised the Rhine and Po rivers. I travelled through the Alsace area of France and Germany. I also visited Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Austria. I very much enjoyed experiencing the culture of Mexico in Cancun and Chichen Itza. I have travelled extensively through the Caribbean. In Canada, I have enjoyed Montreal, Quebec, and Vancouver. As for the U.S., I have been up and down the East Coast, as well as out to Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and California. Not to forget Texas and Oklahoma. I love New Orleans! There's so much to do there. And one can't forget Alaska. one of the most beautiful places on earth. I loved the forests and the fresh air. You never know what type of wildlife you might see there. The world is absolutely full of beautiful places!
Why should someone book their vacation with you? I will take the time to get to know you, so that I can really tailor your vacation to your needs. We all travel differently. It is important that you see the world in a way that really makes you happy. I want to provide you with an unforgettable experience!
