After 40 years in the travel business I've decided I'm never going to retire! It is just that "the BUSINESS OF TRAVEL" holds me. The business of problem solving, the business of getting the client where he must be when he must be there in the most cost efficient way, the business of negotiating with hotels, with airlines and suppliers the business of meetings, incentives and groups. And when my corporate clients business is taken care of, then there is the business of finding a nice relaxing cruise or a restful vacation to excite and renew them. Travel is an exciting industry. The dynamics of the industry with its constant changes keeps our adrenalin flowing, our enthusiasm up and our lives constantly challenged and that is what keeps us forever young. Having traveled all over the world, touring, leading groups, skiing, sightseeing, learning, teaching, exploring, adventuring, staying in castles and palaces, deluxe hotels, b and b's and pensions and even camping out on a beach in Ibiza...I've done it all. But now my passion is Cruising. There is nothing like the luxury of a fine small or medium size cruise on Crystal or Seaborne or Silver Seas or Windstar or Oceania or Azamara or Regent or even on a square rigged sailing brigantine like the Star Clipper or on a river cruise on the Danube, to be pampered and fed and entertained, to meet interesting fellow travelers and just see the world from the top deck or your balcony. That is heaven especially on Virtuoso Hosted cruises. You meet the nicest people and make lifelong friends with the world.
