Favorite Travel Destination 

Anywhere in Europe, but especially France and Italy.  The history, food and wines in both of these countries are amazing. Great Britain, especially Scotland where my ancestry originated, and Greece run a close third and fourth on my list.  

When traveling I absolutely MUST have...

My passport, my cell phone with international service and data roaming, my Kindle, a power convertor, an umbrella and great walking shoes

Best Travel Advice

Pack and then take half of it out.  Use packing cubes to help you organize. You can wear clothes more than once.  Take old underwear and throw it away as you go to free up space in your suitcase for the things you buy. Learn to say excuse me, thank you, good morning and good evening in the language of the country you are visiting.

Favorite Travel Destination

Cruising any river in Europe, especially during the Christmas Markets. There may be a more festive, enjoyable time to be had in a delightful environment at a leisurely pace, but I don't know where it is.

When traveling I absolutely MUST have...

Comfortable bedding and good coffee. A bad night's sleep on an uncomfortable mattress is a vacation destroyer. And, while we're at it, drink good coffee, not some washed out, almost clear hot water.  When traveling with someone else, pack half of your clothes in each others bag in case one of them gets lost. That way you will still have clothes to wear. (Ask me how I know to do this).

Best Travel Advice

Find a travel advisor who will listen to YOU, ask questions about your likes and dislikes and how you wish to experience the good ones.

I'm a sun and beach kind of girl, and there is no better place to escape and relax than in the Caribbean.  Sure, I love to explore the culture of other places, but the Caribbean always calls me back. I also love the British Isles.  So much history and the land of my ancestors.

When traveling I absolutely MUST have...

Cash for tips, a credit card with no foreign exchange fees, and international calling plan on my cell phone, and my passport.

Best Travel Advice

Don't over pack.

Anywhere on a Disney cruise.  It's a great way for my family to relax and have fun together.  Disney World is a close second.

Good company and great food

Best Travel Advice

Use a travel agent and buy insurance. You never know when you might need help or have an emergency. My husband spent a few days in a hospital in Orlando a few years ago. Travel Guard insurance covered every penny and was a great help.

Favorite Travel Destination

Hawaii.  The scenery, the culture, the friendliness of the people, the diversity of experiences to be had on multiple islands, and the efficient tourism infrastructure are all reasons I love Hawaii.  Honorable mentions for favorites go to the Mediterranean and Canada-New England cruises.

When traveling I absolutely MUST have...

Proper and appropriate clothing, the most important of which is comfortable walking shoes

Best Travel Advice 

Leave your fears at home. The fact is 99% of them had no legs to begin with. Instead, bring with you a sense of wonderment and joy!

I am all about the beach and sunshine!  My favorite destination would have to be Grand Turk.  It is always so relaxing and the water is beautiful there.  When we choose a cruise, we always try to find an itinerary with a stop at Grand Turk.

My camera!  Making memories with my family is the most important thing, and I always want to capture every moment to look back on for years to come. 

Best Travel Advice

Try not to overpack!  Leave room in your suitcase for all those souvenirs!

Warm weather.  Alaska was beautiful and grateful to have seen the glaciers and whales, but give me warm, sunny weather!
