My love for travel has always been a part of who I am - it's lead me to live in such far flung places as New Orleans, San Francisco, Maui & now happily settled in Maryland!

In 2001, I started helping others with their trips-of-a-lifetime. At that time, I was living on the beautiful island of Maui, and was lucky enough to travel throughout the South Pacific: visiting islands throughout the South Pacific including Fiji, Tahiti & Hawaii. Now that I'm with Connoisseur Travel, my specialties have moved from the South Pacific to include Europe and beyond.

Be it a bike ride through Tuscany, honeymoon on a Caribbean shore, or family vacation to Hawaii - I'm here to help make your travel dreams come true!

Honeymoon Ideas for Any Budget
I am going to share my advice on factoring budget for your honeymoon travel. I know it's tempting to put off on the honeymoon when planning the "perfect wedding," however, please remember - your wedding is over in one day.
