Europe is one of my favorite international travel destinations. Some of my all-time favorite cities to visit are Paris, Rome and Barcelona. But the best thing about traveling to Europe is being able to explore the smaller, picturesque towns all over the continent. Click here to see a collection of some of my favorite photos I’ve taken while traveling throughout Europe!
I wish more people took the time to travel internationally. Did you know that only 42 percent of Americans have a passport? Surprising, right? When I discovered that less than half of Americans have passports, I knew I needed to do something to change that.
If you book an international travel package with me whether it’s for 2022 or 2023 dates, I'll pay your passport fees!
Already have a passport? I'll pay for your Global Entry, which includes TSA pre-check! This means you'll be able to get through TSA and customs lines in the U.S. faster. Traveling made easy!
Let me help you plan an unforgettable international travel experience sure to leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.

What to Expect?
Some people might choose a tropical destination for a vacation where they can fully relax, get a massage, and lounge in the pool. If you love to explore or are just looking for something different, consider cruising through Alaska.
Sipping your morning tea in front of a huge glacier is a once in a blue moon experience. In addition to this, there are several activities you can do in Alaska aside from the premium service you will get from your cruise. The name Alaska is derived from the Aleut alaxsxa or alaxsxix̂, which means “mainland” or “great land.” It is indeed a great land. You wouldn’t want to miss exploring this beautiful sight.
I'm hosting a group on an Alaska cruise this May where we will also spend some time in a lodge in Denali. In this article, I will tell you what you can expect on this kind of cruise tour to Alaska.
These are the places included in the trip:
Alaska's national parks are very well taken care of to preserve the beauty of the state. Alaska is known for many native groups, and you can learn some of their cultures by getting up close and personal with them.
You don’t have to be a mountaineer to appreciate mother nature and its vast huge mountains during your land tours. Simply looking at their greatness is enough to fill your bucket list. This is surely one of the unforgettable adventures you will experience in your lifetime. As you go along exploring Alaska, you will meet the greatness of its wilderness.
Alaska is located northwest of the North American continent and is the largest peninsula in the Western Hemisphere. This means that a cruise is a perfect way to explore Alaska because the state is mostly surrounded by water. While touring the state on a cruise, you will experience the amazing glaciers from the places mentioned in their different forms and sometimes you will get to witness an Instagram-worthy experience as they amazingly crash and fall into the water as you pass by.
What if I told you there’s a way you could travel for free, and it doesn't involve credit cards or tracking rewards points? Plus, you get to travel with your friends! There's a little secret to traveling for free I’ve discovered as a travel advisor, and I'd like to share it with you: all you have to do is get a small group of friends together and your costs are covered.
Work with me to come up with your ideal itinerary. Let's say it's a cruise. You get nine friends to go on the same cruise, and you'll go for FREE! If you get 10 couples in your group, you'll get a FREE CABIN for you and your guest.
This is just one example. Requirements and rewards vary. Contact me to put together a travel plan that suits you!
There will always be some costs such as taxes and flights, but overall, this is the cheapest way you'll find to travel.

I've loved going wine tasting ever since my experience as a Peace Corps volunteer in Bulgaria. Wine is an integral part of their culture and many families have their own vineyard to produce wine for their own use. I had the opportunity to drink wine paired perfectly with the local cuisine. I even helped a family make wine on a weekend getaway to their village.
It's not just the wine that draws me to visit vineyard after vineyard. I love meeting the people behind the wine and learn more about their family history. Visiting breathtaking vineyards where the wine is made and relaxing in nature adds to the experience as well. I've explored dozens of wineries in California, mostly in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Clara Valley, Sonoma Valley, and Napa Valley. I've also gone wine tasting in Italy and France. I enjoy it so much it has become a tradition to visit a new winery every time I visit Europe. Many wineries will offer a lunch and wine pairing experience if you love great food too.
If you like to cruise, there are now amazing wine river cruises to choose from. You'll visit a region of your choosing and stop in a different picturesque town every day or so. Ask me more about wine river cruises.
