THE PERFECT VACATION

So, what creates the perfect vacation for my clients? It all starts with a discovery call to learn how the clients like to travel, what they are looking to get out of their vacation and what will make it memorable and special for them. This should be the main goal of any travel designer. Those clients that are just needing a quickie Mexico trip or the best bargain they can find are probably not really needing the services of a travel designer/advisor. That’s what Expedia was created for. But if you want an authentic, off the beaten path experience, where people meet culture and immerse themselves in the destination, then you have found the right place to create a perfect vacation.

SIMPLY SCOTTSDALE

I have been craving a getaway as I haven’t travelled in the month of December yet. So, Richard and I are off to Scottsdale Arizona for a 3-day weekend. We will work from the pool on Friday and then enjoy the weekend with warmer weather than in Colorado. Have you ever thought about a long weekend getaway domestically? I will admit I am usually a “long distance” traveler. Simply Scottsdale, I thought I would introduce you to some resorts that you could enjoy during a long weekend here.

TRAVEL LOVER GIFT GIVING

If you are like me, this is a tough subject! My passion is traveling and here it is Christmas time. Everyone wants ideas for gifts, and of course, I don’t really need anything. I crave experiences, new culinary delights, spending time in another country. Those do not really make great Christmas gifts. So… this edition… Travel lover gift gifting. (The super short version as I don’t have that many ideas).

ACTIVE ITALY TRIPS

This week I am at a virtual trade conference for Italy.  What does this mean?  It means that I meet with suppliers from Italy online on Zoom.  I learn about new properties, new suppliers, new destination management companies, and more.  Today, I had the pleasant experience of meeting with Dolomite Mountains.  This is a destination management company, and they work with travel advisors (like me) to curate amazing experiences in their “country”. I cannot wait to share some of these amazing ideas for active travelers or skiers!

SECRET BOLOGNA EXPERIENCE

Richard and I were traveling through Bologna and I found the most special farmhouse/cooking class in the countryside of Bologna. The owners were lovely, engaging and we were in awe of the whole experience. A husband-and-wife team running a farm, restaurant, cooking school, and a B&B as well. This secret Bologna experience has stayed on top of our minds every time we think of Italy.
