About Michelle

I have been in the travel industry for over 20 years. Travel has been my passion for so long, I cannot remember it being anything else. I believe travel broadens your mind and soul. When I'm not planning vacations I am usually cooking, gardening and spending time with my family.  

Top Three Travel Experiences

England

My first trip at 15, sealed the deal with my love of travel. I have been to England many times since, and intend to go many more times. The history and atmosphere have stolen my heart. My most memorable experience was seeing Princess Diana's memorial at her family home of the Althrop House and meeting her brother, Charles, Earl Spencer.

Hawaii's Big Island

I've been to all 4 major Hawaiian islands, but the main island is my absolute favorite. The diverse climate zones, the dining, and the people are just so remarkable. Flumin da ditch was my favorite activity.

Scotland

A glorious place to visit. From the highlands and Loch Ness to Edinburgh with it's old and new cities! My favorite activities were touring the catacombs and taking the tour of the old city and seeing fireworks going off over the castle during the Military Tattoo.
