Everyone asks me, “What is your favorite place?” After 35 years as owner of Rainbow Travel and 150 countries visited, I always say, “everywhere.” The world is full of excitement, interesting people, places and adventure. Travel is “who” you go with and your situation that makes a place “the best.”
My goal is to make my clients travel dreams come true. I can do this as I have been to all the continents, lived in Europe, cruised on 75 ships, trekked gorillas, played with lemurs, hugged koalas, walked on the Via Veneto, the great wall of China, taken unique train journeys, climbed the Eiffel tower and more……….. I have been to where travelers are going and my background will help to plan a better vacation. Experience DOES matter!
I love the challenge of creating wonderful memories for individuals, groups, honeymooners, cruisers and for the Phyllis Trips, “girls only” getaways.
