About me…

I live in Springville, Al, just outside of Birmingham.   I have 3 married children, and a 20 yr old daughter, currently in college.   Plus the two most precious grandsons ever! I love to travel and explore new places and what each place has to offer. I enjoy helping others plan their travel, so that they can have the best experience possible.

My favorite vacation…

I love them all! I have learned that vacations may not all be exactly what we would like them to be but…we are just making memories along life’s way.

My Most Memorable Are…

  • My first time out of the country to Guatemala with my Dad at the age of 13. It was adventurous and educational (a must with my Dad).
  • Europe to see the sights with him 15 years later. We visited Italy, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. This was, as an adult, my first real taste of travel outside the US.
  • Cruising – Family cruises, work trips, dance classes at Sea, girls get away with my Mom and family. I just love all cruises!
  • Mountains with the kids – I have gone with my children to a great 5br cabin in Gatlinburg for four years now. The memories there will never leave my kids. Simple, but quite memorable.
  • Graduation trip to New York City with my two oldest – we had such a good time and it was their first big trip. I loved it!
  • Train trip to NYC with my youngest when she was 17.  It was AMAZING!  Such fond memories for both of us.
  • Hawaii in 94’ , I was so amazed at the difference in beaches in Maui. The rain forest was amazing and the road to Hana is a must! This was where I took my 1st snorkeling trip.
  • Many trips in the US – to Arizona, California, Iowa, Texas, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, New York, Indiana, South Dakota, Louisiana, Florida, and lets don’t forget the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast. There is so much to explore right here.
  • All of those cheerleading trips to Disney World – You see it differently with a group of 15, 16, and 17 yr old girls! I love it!
  • Disney with those grandsons have my heart.

My Dream Vacation…

I think my dream vacation right now would be with all of my children and grandchildren to wherever that may take us.  Making memories is what it is all about.  I wouldn’t  care where to as long as we are together.

After learning what kind of traveler you are, I can help you make the best decision of where to go.
