I am fortunate that my parents gave me travel experiences at an early age by taking lengthy car trips throughout the U.S. every summer; and also several European bus tours throughout the continent, during my adolescent years.
It all began with one very memorable event occurring at the age of 8, my first cruise. During Christmas vacation break from third grade, my family sailed from New York City past the Statue of Liberty for a month-long round-trip voyage through the Caribbean and along eastern South America as far south as Buenos Aires, Argentina. During that awesome adventure, I learned that kids my age in a completely different cultural environment enjoyed the same life experiences including opening Christmas gifts. I was hooked on cruising and traveling to foreign lands and knew I wanted to travel and design my journeys the rest of my life! My love of travel and passion to get the most out of each adventure throughout my early adult life gave me the desire to help others create lifetime memories like those that I have. Fast forward a few years, my inspiration to assist others achieve the same cultural rewards prompted me to begin training at our local travel agency and after a few years and a change of ownership, I decided it was time to develop Getaway Dreams Come True Travel. I only wish I had become a professional travel planner much sooner!
