What do you do for fun when not traveling? I love to spend time at our place on Mille Lacs Lake. I also enjoy gardening and baking.

What’s your favorite destination and why? Hawaii! I love how laid back it is.  I also love the people, the food, the weather and scenery.

What’s the most unusual trip you’ve booked for a client? I booked a 5 week tour of Europe. I priced tours, cruises, trains, and transfers.  It was definitely a challenge but I learned a lot!

Any random fun facts? I LOVE to roller-skate. I may not be as smooth and graceful as I used to be, but I still enjoy it when I get the chance.

Travel bucket list? Italy, Alaska, Netherlands, and Mediterranean Cruise

What are your travel related specialties?  My travel related specialties include Princess Academy, Celebrity 5 Star Academy and European Rail Expert. I have been on 8 different cruises including Alaska, Hawaii, 3 Caribbean and 2 Mediterranean itineraries. The most recent trip was on Viking River Cruise on the Danube from Nuremberg to Budapest.

What’s on your travel bucket list? New Zealand and an African safari.

Do you have a favorite destination? The European countries are my favorite destinations, because of the history, culture, paintings and beautiful buildings. There are 3 places that really stand out, first one is Ephesus in Turkey to see the excavation going on to uncover a city that was built in 10 century BC. They had homes that had hot and cold running water and they still have concerts in the amphitheater. I also enjoyed Rome, when I visited the Colosseum and the Vatican. The last destination is Budapest, which we viewed all the beautiful buildings lit up at night from our Viking River Cruise on the Danube.
