Hawaii has without a doubt become one of my top destinations. Hawaii is so much more than a beach destination. It encompasses beauty, adventure, and a way of life. Italy is so alive with history and culture that it makes you feel as though you’ve gone back in time. Watching the sun rise over the Tuscan hills was so serene, and zipping through the Venice canals was something out of an old film.
My dream travel companion is my 70lb Doberman, Cocoa. I always say that I wish she could talk, and I always want to take her on my journeys. I can totally picture her in Paris with a beret and scarf around her neck, exploring the city on a bicycle, or trying out some hefeweizen in Munich…she is German after all. She would be the ultimate travel buddy!
Use packing cubes -they're great for organizing and making more space in your bag.

Fabulous trip, Melissa did an exceptional job planning and coordinating the various modes of transportation and excursions. We had a wonderful, stress free trip. The JK Capri Hotel was a small, boutique hotel, great food and impeccable service. Ravello was breath taking and we plan to return and visit both places again. Paul loved the boat trip, and it was a highlight of the trip. Melissa is patient, kind and professional, she truly understands customer care, and is an expert in the travel industry. Thank you!!!-Lynn Tufano
Just wanted to thank you for another perfectly executed trip. As usual, the hotels were perfect and all the excursions and transfers lined up with precision. We of course expect no less now as you’ve set such a high standard for yourselves but you never disappoint. You guys are pros. -Dan Michalchuk
