Meet Connie, Your Luxury Travel Advisor
But it wasn’t so much the extra “things” they provided—it was the smile on their faces, the willingness of everyone to answer questions, their local knowledge, and their thoughtfulness. I’m sure problems came up as they tried to manage 20 Congressional staffers, but we never knew about them because they worked diligently behind the scenes to keep our trip running smoothly. All we had to do was relax and enjoy once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences—like a train ride through Tibet on the highest railway in the world.
From this trip—and my 30 years planning travel for political VIPs—I learned the importance of attending to the smallest details and proactively avoiding potential problems to make a trip run smoothly. Little personal touches and having someone to turn to when something went wrong eased the stress on weary travelers.
Today, I want to share my love of travel and help others check off their travel bucket list. Running my own luxury travel agency allows me to use my years of travel experience, passion for customer service, and network of local suppliers to design unique travel experiences for you.
Travel is about rejuvenation and learning. Learning about new places, new cultures, new ideas, and the history of how things came to be. It is also a time to soak in the beauty, take a break from the cares of daily life, and spend time with friends, family, or just yourself.
Are you ready to let me worry about the planning and the details so you can relax and pamper yourself with a stress-free experience? If so, schedule your free consultation so we can get to know each other, and I can design your perfectly luxurious adventure.
I did not grow up in a family of “luxury travelers.” My dad was in the Army and we moved often. When we lived in Germany for several years, my parents would pack us up in the station wagon Dad had shipped over and drive us all over Europe. European streets were not made for large American station wagons and we received lots of stares and head shaking. Luxury travel this was not!
The first time I experienced luxury travel was on a visit to China—and it showed me how relaxing, rejuvenating, and inspiring a journey could really be.
For almost thirty years I worked in Washington, D.C. on Capitol Hill, arranging travel for various members of Congress and other VIPs. I got to go on this China visit as a guest of the Chinese Ministry of Tourism. From the moment we boarded the bus to go to the airport, we were totally pampered. Our luggage was whisked away and magically appeared in our room every evening. Our first-class seats allowed us to rest and relax on the long flight from Washington, DC to Beijing. They were constantly feeding us. We had slippers and robes and hot towels -- benefits you never get in coach.
