Travel has always been a passion of mine, so I love the fact that I get to help people plan vacations and call it a job! My own trips have taken me across North America, to Europe, and even to the Sahara Desert. As a foodie and beer/wine geek, I think one of the best ways to learn more about a culture is through food and drink – so let me know if you want to sip Malbec in Mendoza, go on a tapas crawl through a city in Spain, or visit Munich for Oktoberfest!
I love adding some magic to family trips to Disney World, helping you plan a girls’ getaway, or finding a romantic place for you to visit with the person you love.
My favorite places in the world (so far) are Sedona, Arizona; Maui, Hawaii; Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada; Tunis, Tunisia; and Madrid, Spain. But enough about me....where do YOU want to go? Let me know!
"Maureen was very friendly and accommodating, willing to listen to us and book a perfect vacation for us. She helped us book Pueblo Bonito Pacifica in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - it was amazing! I would recommend her and I will definitely call her for my travel needs."
Whether you're looking for a boutique property or a grand all-inclusive resort, the options in this region are endless. But sometimes all those options can be overwhelming! I'd love to help you find the resort and stretch of beautiful beach that is perfect for you and your vacation style. After you've chosen a flight and hotel package, I can also help you pick some activities to do during your trip. Would you like to visit the ruins at Chichen Itza or Tulum? Snorkel or dive? Go horseback riding on the beach? Those extras can make your trip a memorable one.
This land of flamenco, tapas and wine is my favorite spot on Earth! I've been to Madrid and Valencia and am going to Seville and Granada for my honeymoon in the spring of 2017! I'm also a certified 360 Spain Specialist, and a Catalonia Specialist. Whether you want to eat paella in Valencia; visit the Prado, one of the world's premier art museums, in Madrid; see Gaudi's architectural masterpieces in Barcelona; dance flamenco in Andalucia; or visit the pristine beaches and eat gourmet tapas in the country's Basque region, I can help you customize an incredible trip.
From Paris, which, in the words of Audrey Hepburn, is always a good idea, to the castles and vistas in France's Loire region, the country has something for every traveler. And I mentioned I was a wine geek, remember? Whether you prefer Burgundy or Bordeaux, I can make sure your vacation involves vineyards! Certification: Sud de France specialist
I love hiking and getting outdoors, and have visited many of North America's beautiful national parks, forests and monuments. Visits to Yellowstone, Yosemite, Glacier, Grand Canyon and Rocky Mountain National Park, along with Banff, Jasper and Yoho in the Canadian Rockies, make up some of my favorite family vacation memories.
I can't begin to describe the beauty of snorkeling in the Hawaiian islands. (I guess you'll just have to go there to see for yourself!) I fell in love with the state during a trip to Maui a few years ago. The laid-back island feel is incredible. Everyone is so friendly there. And you can't miss a drive on the Hana Highway, a shopping day in Lahaina, and sunrise on Haleakala. But Maui is just one of the incredible Hawaiian Islands. Kauai is the next one I want to check off my list. Certification: Go Hawaii Specialist
It's not just me. Two of my favorite beaches in the country consistently top all those "America's Best Beaches" lists: Siesta Key and Caladesi Island. And did I mention they're both on Florida's Gulf Coast? But the area is about more than just beaches. From Tampa's culture and craft beer scene to St. Pete's museums and attractions, and the natural areas perfect for bird-watching and gator-spotting, this family-friendly destination is one of my favorites.
