I have been to every continent, and have visited more than fifty countries along with the other half of Huckleberry Travel. Along the way, we have camped in a tent in Antarctica, cruised through the fjords of Norway and ridden elephants on safari in Zimbabwe. We have climbed the Great Wall of China, stood on the rim of a volcano at sunrise, and eaten our way through the best barbecue restaurants in Kansas City. Our love of travel and passion for once-in-a-lifetime experiences have led us here: to help others have a fantastic time seeing the world.
I live and breathe the travel industry! I love talking to clients and matching clients up with the right vacation -On land or by Sea. I listen and carefully hand craft vacations, matching expectations with budget. I do the research which saves clients tons of time and money. I spend a lot of time and money to go out and see the product, taste the food, experience the service so I can make solid recommendations and shape forever memories. I do not work in a call center. I'm a Travel Advisor - not just an order taker. Please know this research & advice takes time - I provide Value.
Price is what you pay- Value is what you get.
I am a graduate of Harding University and owner of RLX Travel Group, LLC. In addition, I'm a proud U.S. veteran and have been married for 30 years to my husband, a retired U.S. Army Special Forces soldier. The military afforded my family many opportunities to travel and I developed a desire to see the world! Several years ago, my husband and I decided to make major changes in our lifestyle. We sold our home and personal belongings, purchased a tour bus and toured the United States for a couple of years. While on the road, we often parked the bus at the nearest airport and jumped on a cruise ship for a change of pace! One cruise highlight was the 26-Day Transatlantic and British Isle Cruise we were able to experience. Amazing! In order to share our dream of travel, we decided to open a travel agency to help others experience the joy and excitement we've seen firsthand.
I have lived abroad and I have traveled the globe. I know Japan and SE Asia very well. I was selected as a G Adventures Ambassador of Change for my focus on sustainable travel. My favorite travel experiences include glacier hiking in Iceland, cherry blossoms in Japan, climbing inside an Egyptian pyramid, cruising in Ha Long Bay, snorkeling in bioluminescence, exploring Angkor Wat, to name a few! I love to put the puzzle pieces together to make an amazing vacation experience. I can help you plan a big bucket list adventure of a lifetime anywhere in the world. All you have to do is e-mail me to get started. I cannot wait to talk to you. Let`s Go Round the World!
I lived in Nepal for 18 years operating tours, treks and expeditions throughout South Asia and Tibet. Our specialties have expanded to include most of the rest of the world with Cuba being the hottest destination lately.
I founded Summit and Horizon Travel because I live for the moments that take my breath away, and I love to share my passions and expertise with like-minded global travelers who are committed to experiencing the very best the world can offer. Highly-personalized, fully-tailored, and meticulously-detailed journeys are my privilege and my promise to my discerning clientele, and I can't wait to bring your travel dreams to life!
Travel is transformative in all the very best ways - it brings us closer to the world, and also closer to ourselves. I take great pride in curating unique, authentic, and comprehensive itineraries that allow for full immersion into each new and exciting destination, while also ensuring that my clients always travel in comfort and with style.
Every Summit and Horizon Travel vacation is thoughtfully crafted, with each detail carefully planned for, so that the world unfolds seamlessly in all its wonder. I look forward to each opportunity to create extraordinary and meaningful moments that will become treasured memories, and to transforming my clients' visions into an amazing reality that exceeds their hopes and expectations.
Most of all, I relish the endless possibilities of knowing that, no matter how much we travel, there is always more to discover and more adventures to be lived.
