**As a travel adviser for over 20 years, I have had the privilege of assisting many intrepid travelers explore the world! Whether you want to cruise to Antarctica, hike the Inca Trail to see Machu Picchu, get up close and personal with wildlife in Alaska, take trains through the Alps in Switzerland, zipline through the lush green canopy in the rainforest, cruise down the Rhine River and watch the castles go by, see the monkeys foraging and playing the treetops from your balcony, or snorkel with turtles and colorful fish between umbrella drinks at an all-inclusive resort, I would love to help you create the experience that you have been dreaming about. 
 **Need ideas? Let me know what you like to do on vacation, and I will be happy to suggest a destination that is a great fit. If an adventurous tropical vacation is what you have in mind, I would love to share some of my favorite places and experiences with you! 
 **If cruising is your passion, ask me about the extra value I can add to your cruise reservations, and about our Cruisetracker tool that automatically sends me an alert if your pricing goes down! Planning to spend a few extra days before or after your cruise? When you book a cruise with Carefree Vacations, we will assist with all of your travel plans before, during and after your cruise. Best of all - whether you are looking for an expedition cruise, a fun family cruise or an upscale yacht cruise, I can help you pinpoint the cruise line, ship and itinerary that best fits your personality and vision for your trip. (And will make sure you are not stuck in a stateroom under the pool deck!)
 **Let me know what's on your travel bucket list! Let's turn your vision into an incredible vacation!
