Come Travel With Me!
Let’s have some fun together exploring the world! I travel sometimes with my husband Tod, but also as a solo traveler (my husband doesn’t like to go on as many trips a year as I like to). There are a great group of travelers, growing all the time, that love to travel together. Each year I select a number of tours that I join. Imagine, not only do you have a wonderful local guide, but also your Travel Advisor, making sure every detail is perfect. I will share travel tips, expertise, and adventures as we travel along. Many of my experienced “Escapers” have traveled together and traveled with me. When a “Come Travel With Me” trip is posted, it is often full very quickly. So do not delay, join this growing group of travel buddies!
