All-inclusive, Sun & Fun Vacations, and More!

I became a travel agent in 1982, because I wanted to help you all travel the world. Not many people can say that their job is to plan a trip to Hawaii, a first plane ride or cruise; but I get to do this everyday! I have travelled recently to many destinations -- to Ireland, Mexico, Jamaica, Universal Park Florida, the Dominican Republic, Italy, New York City, and Caribbean Cruise. Next up--a week in Cabo Mexico! I enjoy sharing my travel experiences with you. I want to make your vacation as memorable as it can be.

Hawaii is calling!

Hawaii has different islands to be experienced and, best of all, you’re still in the U.S.; so there’s no worrying about a different language or needing foreign money or a passport. There are fantastic beaches on each island (Oahu, Kauai, Maui, the Big Island of Hawaii, Molokaii) and activities galore,...

Make memories in Mexico!

Planning a friends and family getaway to Mexico? There are many places in Mexico to visit, but one of my favorite places is Cancun and the Riviera Maya. On my second trip to Cancun, I rented a condo with my family and took a day trip to the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. We went zip-lining and snorkeling...

Wilderness and Beauty--all in Alaska

Why head north to Alaska? For the beautiful scenery, the untamed wilderness, and history of our 49th state.  There is so much to see, and so many different ways to see it all. If you only have a short time to travel, a 7 night cruise through the Inside Passage is a great way to experience several...

Girls Trip To New York City!

Girls trips are all over the news and I must say that I had a great time, when I travelled to NYC for a few fun-filled days of fast-paced touring, trying to see everything the city has to offer! Staying at a hotel with a good location is key, and our choice of the Courtyard Marriott Midtown (on 8th...Read more.

Customer Testimonials

Cozumel Mexico ~ return visit to Iberostar

It was great. We get there and on the billboard – it had “welcome back, Mr. & Mrs......” They also swung by our room and gave us t-shirts that said, “Iberostar – “I am back” and a bottle of Tequila. Thought that was pretty impressive since we had not been there since 2002. Did you tell them we were repeat customers? Thank you, Faye for getting this put together for us. You know I have a big mouth and anytime someone says they are planning a vacation, I always tell them.. “call Faye.. she has all the connections”…

RIU Palace Bavaro! We had a great time!

We had a great time! Everything went really well. Palace Bavaro was beautiful and we had access to a couple other RIU hotels also. The rooms were great. Meals were awesome! I would definitely recommend it to anyone! I will also give recommendations to work with you for any travel. We are already thinking about next year. Thanks again for all you do! It made everything easy!

Dominican Republic was awesome!

Hey Faye, Our trip was awesome! We had so much fun. The resort was so nice. Thank you for suggesting the swim up suite. It was so worth it! I would suggest that to anyone that travels there. Overall it was more than we could have hoped for. We definitely felt taken care of and it was so relaxing. Thank you again!

Simply Beautiful with awesome weather
Faye always takes the time to research several options for us until we find the one that works the best for us. She has also been available by email when we are at our destination to help with any problems that may arise. Recently the hotel gave us a free "upgrade", which we did not like. When we asked for our original rooms they said they were overbooked. Within hours Faye had us the rooms we booked!

Sailing the beautiful Danube
We visited with Faye and told her we were interested in doing a river cruise. She provided us with information and invited us to attend a presentation given by Viking. From there she helped get us set up with the tour and worked with Viking to arrange the flights that best fit our schedule. It was easy to e-mail her with any questions we had. She responded immediately and provided further information, as needed. We had one glitch in our flight plans which occurred shortly before we were scheduled to depart. She immediately made the necessary contacts and resolved the issue. She did the heavy lifting and we didn't have to worry about anything. She was great!
