This is an open and inclusive club for men and women, couples and singles interested in travel. We will investigate, research, discuss and explore out of the way and extraordinary itineraries. We may learn languages and research unique aspects to our focused travel destinations. We will invite guest speakers and taste foods of the globe. We want you to join us in our global explorations....

As an independent Travel Consultant, I am able to assist with all kinds of land tours, flights and so on ....  a large part of my business (and fun!) is finding suitable tours and options to explore out of the way places.  

I am an independent contractor with DEPARTURES TRAVEL as my base company. I personally love the little boutique cruiseships I sail with, and river cruising - but I am aware cruising is not for everyone.

I am offering my consultation freely to the group AND I am also a traveller so I hope to go with the group, on trips we plan together.

Some examples:

 17 of us went to India in January 2017 for 4 weeks - multiple tours and stays in north and south of India.  

 14 of us went to the Amazon, on a small boutique cruise ship.  

12 of us went to Europe for a cruise but also several days in Italy in hotels and tootling around the area.  

Since then I have also spent a month in a villa in South of France ... feel free to check out my blog to learn even more about me .....  

This year heading back to India with a group and then in the summer, a river barge in Burgundy region of France.  After that New York City!  Woo hoo

  I welcome your questions and your ideas and I look forward to meeting up with all of you!
