WORLD'S IDYLLIC ISLANDS
I've had the opportunity to travel Europe by car, train, ship, bus, and even by bike. One of my favorite ways to see Europe is by river cruise. Some of my most memorable experiences while travelling have been biking around Amsterdam like a local, enjoying a picnic under the Eiffel Tower, visiting a farm in Sorrento, watching the sunset from the patio of an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora, and viewing the art and architecture and learning about the history of Europe’s major cities. I’ve had the pleasure of working in the travel industry for over 15 years and love helping people turn their travel dreams into realities. There is nothing more fulfilling than assisting others in exploring unfamiliar places, embracing different cultures, meeting new people, and trying exotic cuisines from around the world. My favorite thing is helping people cross destinations off of their bucket lists.
My favourite places
Australia & South Pacific
Bora Bora is a small island in the western part of the Society Islands of French Polynesia in the Pacific Ocean. The main island is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. In the center of the island are the remnants of an extinct volcano rising to two peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu.
Paris is the city of love, inspiration, art, and fashion. Nicknamed the City of Lights, it's also the capital and largest city of France. Paris has a lot to offer for sightseeing. Here are five very famous examples: the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Champs-Elysees, and the Moulin Rouge.
Sorrento is a town overlooking the Bay of Naples in Southern Italy. A popular tourist destination, it can be reached easily from Naples by rail. Sorrento connects to the Amalfi Coast by a narrow road that runs along the high cliffs above the Tyrrhenian Sea. Ferries connect the town to Naples, the Amalfi, and Capri.
Amsterdam is considered the cultural capital of the Netherlands. Amsterdam's main attractions include its historic canals, the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum, Hermitage Amsterdam, Anne Frank House, and the red-light district. The city draws more than five million international visitors annually.
