Leisure and Luxury Travel Consultant

We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.

A new journey changes you and leaves you transformed in mind, body and spirit. Whether you are visiting on a vineyard in Pinhao along the Duoro River, walking the grand rooms of Schonbrun Place in Vienna or exploring the many flavors of chocolate in Brussels, the feelings of delight, wonder and adventure change you.

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

I want to share my love for travel and help you travel experiences that expand your heart and mind.My travel adventures began at 8 months old visiting my parent’s homeland in communist Hungary. Hungarian was my first language, and soon the culture and heritage become a part of me as well.A family move to Austria during middle school sealed my love of all things European.  For two years we took trips skiing in the Central Alps and meandering through magical Austrian countryside. Those were the best years of my childhood.My journeys continued accompanying my daughter on high school tours throughout Italy and Greece, along with family trips to Turks and Cacaos and Mexico, to luxury river cruises with my brother and elder mother to Portugal, and along the Rhine River and The Netherlands, my journey continues.

I desire nothing more than to design the trip of a lifetime for you and your travel mates.

Whether its lavender fields in Provence, dense forests in Ardennes or stately fortresses in Scotland I am here along with a team of agents to help you explore the beauty that is Europe.From luxury river cruises that give you an intimate look at small villages, tours of magical castles and small luxury ships that travels through the fjords of Norway, I am here to save you time, energy and the stress of wondering whether or not you chose the right places and activities.

Our agency specializes in seamless coordination and creatively curated experiences, so you don’t have to.

The world is filled with magical luxury and I would like to help you experience all that the globe has to offer. So wherever your heart and soul want to take you – whether it’s hidden riches in Japan, Turkish treasures in Istanbul or careening through desert sands in a dune buggy – I am here to plan the details from takeoff to arrival.
