"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a simple step."   ~ Lao Tzu

This is my favorite quote. I live my life by it, and so should you. Your "first step" is just a phone call away. I will be honored to assist with making your travel dream a reality because travel is my passion. I love experiencing unique places and, most of all, different foods! Half of me wants to wander and explore, but the other half wants to be wined and dined like a Queen. There's something magical about knowing there's so much to experience in our big beautiful world.

My favorite place to visit has to be Hawaii, mainly because my family is there. There is much to see and do, from the mountains to the beaches. Some of my favorites are surfing Waikiki, hiking Diamond Head, deep-sea fishing, or leaping off Jump Rock with my 'ohana on the North Shore. I love anything that has a beach.

Italy is another place I adore. Being a "foodie," having authentic pasta and vintage wine are two of my favorite things in Italy. Not only is the food legendary, but the views are also incredible. If you can get the chance to take the train from Milan to Portofino, you will not be disappointed! Even more, Italy is bursting with romance and culture. Something is enchanting about seeing an original castle, breathtaking cathedrals, or even the Coliseum. The architecture is just incredible. Italy has a little bit of everything, which makes it a wonderful place to visit.

Not only do I enjoy food and culture when I visit a new destination, but I love taking pictures. I get to revisit them every time I look at my photos. Life contains many moments, and taking a picture changes that moment into a memory. So let's start making memories of moments and take that "first step" on your next adventure.
