Hey there! My name is Alicia and I am here to help you create a memory-filled trip. From the moment you ask for a quote until you return, I work with you to design the perfect itinerary, book your travel components, navigate the complex travel industry, and I have your back if anything goes wrong. My goal is to make sure your trip exceeds your expectations!
There are certain travel experiences I specialize in so I can provide my clients with up-to-date prices, unique experiences, and current info so they experience the most seamless, stress-free, and custom-designed trip possible. Some of my passions are viewing wildlife in nature, staying in authentic & unique accommodations, planning trips around international holidays or food & wine events, creating exceptional honeymoons and anniversaries for couples, traveling by unique transportation like barges + rail journies + river cruises + private planes, and the outlier...I love Disney. The one component all of these topics must include is
excellent, destination-specific, food and beverages.
Some ideas to ignite your imagination......
THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER
Bratwurst in Germany, wine in California, beignets in New Orleans, ouzo in Greece. All around the world, destinations are famous for their culinary offerings. When I travel I don’t want to just see all of the famous sights, I want to taste the famous food.
Go on an iconic food crawl in the city or sip through a wine appellation to discover a new varietal. Ever heard of Genever? There is a fascinating museum in the Netherlands that will teach you all about it. Ever dream of hunting truffles? Wrangle up a hound at Truffle Dog Co. in Oregon and set out to find the elusive fungus. Or maybe you have a quest for the perfect pint at the iconic Guinness Brewery in Dublin.
Point is, food is memorable. And memories are the best travel souvenirs you can bring home. So make sure when you travel, see the sights, visit the museums, relax at the beach, but add in remarkable meals and maybe a distillery tour and you have experienced all that your destination offers.
Imagine the Possibilities!
“Food is everything we are. It's an extension of national identity, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your tribe, your grandma. It's inseparable from who you are."
— Anthony Bourdain
“We are delightfully trapped by our memories. I can't drink a bottle of Chateauneuf-du-Pape without revisiting a hotel bistro in Luzerne where I ate a large bowl of Alpine stew. A sip and a bite. Memories are conjured with the divine conjunction of food and wine."
