It takes a lot to become an expert. Fortunately for me, with specialties in France, Italy and Asia, that means a lot of dining at Michelin-starred restaurants and journeys to some absolutely breathtaking places. I’ve driven just about every inch of France and in 2016 was honored as one of Travel Agent magazine’s Top 25 All Stars for a Sweet Sixteen trip to Paris that I orchestrated.

I return to my areas of specialty every year to keep up with what’s new, as there have been many changes since I got my start in 1977 designing shopping tours for women, a novel concept for the time and a great avenue for seeing the world in a different way. Having kept up with the trends, I’m now a member of the Virtuoso Wellness community. It’s an exciting new facet of travel, and one I think is very important for Baby Boomers to take advantage of.

Though I became a travel professional in the 1970s, I’ve been cruising since age 8 and have sailed on every major cruise line. My personal favorites are Regent Seven Seas for its value and Cunard for its signature English style and tradition.

I’m always on the lookout for new experiences, too, and my most memorable trip was a recent voyage to Easter Island. So whether you’re going by land or sea, looking for a new destination or a new experience in an old favorite, let’s create your dream itinerary together.
