Planning an itinerary to a country where you're not familiar with the language, currency or customs can be a daunting task. And that is why it's important to book your trip with a knowledgeable agent who understands the region you are hoping to travel to and who can guide you successfully through the planning of your dream itinerary.

My specialty is Asia. I have been blessed to have lived in China for more than a year and have explored many of the wonders of this huge country, such as the Great Wall of China, the Panda Reserve in Chengdu and the bustling streets of Shanghai. I have also visited numerous other countries in Asia, including but not limited to:

  • Bhutan
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

However, my travel experiences aren't just limited to Asian destinations. I have also spent time studying in London and have traveled to and am very familiar with a number of other international destinations, including:

  • Ireland
  • Scotland
  • France

And, of course, I can also help you plan your domestic vacations. Some of the areas I know most intimately include California as well as many of the popular tourist destinations on the East Coast, such as the Washington, D.C. area, the gorgeous mountains of North Carolina and the wine country of Virginia.

My many experiences traveling abroad have given me a passion for helping others to explore this amazing world we live in. I especially enjoy being able to use my personal experiences to create better vacations for my clients. For instance, I can advise you on attractions or sites that are off-the-beaten path and also give you tips and information on such matters as the best ways to exchange your currency and whether or not you need a visa. But one of my best tips is this: Relax, go with the flow and embrace the ambiguity of your time spent traveling. The unexpected moments are often the ones you will look back on most fondly.

Ready to travel? Then please contact me. I would love to be the one to help you discover all that this incredible planet has to offer.

The BEST Travel Agent
It has been a pleasure working with Emily. My “face to face” meeting with her was very pleasant and she had taken the time to pull some travel magazines for me to take & review on Charleston, SC. She was always polite & professional and didn’t mind researching the various hotels she thought would be great choices. She did an excellent job responding to my questions via emails. This experience with her was so much better than my previous experience I had last August 2019. I will definitely reach out to her again.

Spring Break
Emily booked a vacation/spring break trip for my daughter and myself. She was excellent-- very patient and knowledgeable. The trip was somewhat complicated as my daughter and I traveling roundtrip from 2 different cities but Emily handled it well and made the experience of booking travel much better. She had some great suggestions and saved us money booking a flight versus online.
