My travel experiences and love for travel have grown out of a passion for understanding the people and the culture that form the heartbeat of any destination. I'm not looking for 5-star per se, I'm looking to meet real people, interact with them on their terms, and come away changed forever!
In my 30 years as a travel professional I've had many highlights, I have traveled to Africa where I stayed in a rustic lodge and got to know the native people. I had many personal experiences with truly amazing people, including the Masai people who lovingly shared their traditions and opened their hearts to me. I also rode a camel and saw Mt. Kilimanjaro by the light of the moon.
In Southeast Asia I interacted with school children in Hanoi, met the "boat people" who live on the Mekong River Delta, and had scores of interactions with absolutely amazing people. This region provides for amazing cultural experiences.
Recently, I visited Cuba and found it to be an absolute gem. The art, the music and the people made it an stand-out for me. I've also taken a desert safari in Dubai and have used many, many cruises as opportunities for cultural explorations in standout destinations like Israel and the Holy Land, Turkey and many European destinations.
I was born in Egypt and have lived in Canada, Japan and Australia. I am multilingual and fluent in French, Italian, Arabic and English. Being able to communicate with people from around the world and understanding the customs of their homeland, makes it a breeze to plan travel for people all around the globe. So whether you are from another country or just traveling there, I look forward to making your dream a reality.
It would be my pleasure to help you book your cruise, honeymoon or travel overseas.
