Croatia, Tahoe and River Cruising!

Hello, Croatia!
Hello, Croatia!

Let me tell you about where I've recently been! I can help send you there, too!

In April 2018, I traveled to Croatia. You have GOT to see this place. It's a gorgeous mixture of turquoise water and a backdrop of craggy hills spotted with palm trees and olive groves for definite Mediterranean feel. I hope you like boats, with more than 1,000 islands to explore - it's a water-lovers paradise.

It's an ancient place, with some tumultuous history - but today is peaceful, beautiful and friendly everywhere you go. As a relatively new member of the EU, It's a great destination and also lends itself well to those who like to treat themselves with a little extra opulence. There are so many amazing cities in Europe, and one of my top three favorites is Dubrovnik. Let's get you there so you can see why for yourself.

In July 2018, I visited Reno and Lake Tahoe. Reno is a good starting point to explore Lake Tahoe, and I shouldn't tell you this, but it's pretty easy to do on your own. I just like people to know I'm always exploring somewhere new. Pro-tip... Never, EVER, go to Lake Tahoe on the 4th of July, and if you see a cell phone in the lake it's probably mine. (Kayaking is fun, losing your phone in the lake is not!) Let me know if you'd like to check it out, and need my help!

In July 2018 I finally embarked on my first river cruise! These are popular for a reason - let me tell you all about my experience on the Danube with Avalon, the cities you can see along the Danube, and why the Imperial Capitals of Prague, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest are best visited by boat. I can be your guide, and help you navigate the surprisingly complicated world of river cruising. Definitely contact me for this!

First Overseas Trip was fabulous because of Melis
From the initial planning stages to the final execution all interactions with Melissa were fabulous. This was my first ever overseas trip. To say I was a little nervous was an understatement and to make me even more nervous I was doing the trip by myself but Melissa made sure everything was taken care of down to the finest detail.

I thought it was going to be a problem when the tour company changed the dates of my tour because the one I originally signed up for did not have enough travelers. Melissa not only sent me the notification to let me know of the change but she also contacted the company who I bought Travel Insurance thru to inform them of the change.

The only thing I had to do was go on my trip and enjoy it. Melissa took care of everything else.

I think my next tour will be a domestic one but I will definitely be needing Melissa's help again.

First Family Trip To Europe!
Melissa was very helpful with planning our family vacation to Europe. We had never visited Europe before, so she was able to provide hotel and flight recommendations to ensure we had a great location and enough time for activities. Melissa was very attentive to our needs as a family and helped make sure we had a great flight (regarding time) and private transportation to and from the airport. I will definitely work with Melissa in the future!

Congenial Professional, Juggling Lots of Detail!!!
Melissa was very enjoyable to work with. She is knowledgeable and professional. She listened very carefully for our wants and needs, and made some fairly complex arrangements to suit us. She was available to meet at our convenience, and kept us totally informed of progress via email, even when she was not in the office. Our 3 week trip covered Edinburgh, Highlands of Scotland, Newcastle/Hartlepool/York/London/Cornwall, England.
