"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step" is what comes to Jody's mind when she thinks of travel. Her thousand miles of travel have included some of her favorite destinations like the Amalfi Coast, river cruising in Germany and France, touring all of Ireland, walking the Caribbean beaches, escorting a group in Poland, enjoying the beauty of Hawaii, learning in South Africa and trekking through Alaska, just to name a few. She is enthusiastic and loves working with people. Her goal with every client is to qualify them by asking numerous questions to ensure that every vacation creates a memory of a lifetime. She would love the opportunity to assist you in taking the first steps of your next thousand miles. "I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list"

Jody's greatest experience of the Mediterranean was on a Windstar Cruise ship with the masts flapping in the wind and hearing nothing but the splash of the sea. It doesn't matter the size or the type of ship that you will make home for a week or more; what does matter is that you will experience romance, exquisite cuisine, culture and history in the different cities and stars that sparkle so bright it's absolutely magical. Do you like creating memories? Ask Jody how she can help you experience a Mediterranean cruise so you can create memories that you can call your own.
After her second River Cruise in Europe, Jody will be the first to tell you that this is her ultimate, favorite way to experience Europe. Imagine boarding the ship and having the crew members know your name within the next day. Imagine waking up to the view of a castle, or the smell of fresh bakery and knowing that your day will start with an educational city tour. Imagine coming back to the ship at the end of the day to an exquisite meal, glass of wine and having a piano player serenading you prior to retiring for the night. And the best news is...you get to wake up the next morning and experience the thrill all over again. Ask Jody how she can help you make exquisite River Cruise memories for yourself!
A great way to experience the Middle East is via cruise ship, allowing you the opportunity to unpack once and visit three of the seven Emirates. Ports of call might include Fujairah, Muscat Oman, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. At each of these ports you can enjoy the unique Mosques with their beautiful marble floors. A visit to the Dubai Mall is an excursion within itself with over 1,200 retail stores and an indoor ski hill including chair lifts. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest man-made structure in the world and is an absolute “must-see” attraction. My favorite spot is the Souk Madinat Jumeirah where you wander along the meandering avenues, past towers, lantern-lit hallways and narrow waterways. Discover the treasures hidden along the way; fashion, jewelry, antiques, art, oils and spices, and a series of world-class restaurants and bars to entertain you throughout the day and long into the night. If you have the time, additional days in Dubai and Abu Dhabi are worth the time and will allow you to experience more of their cultures and flavors.
