Before I got in the travel industry, I took my four kids to Australia over Christmas. I realized it would be the last time I’d have just my kids without partners, spouses, jobs – we would just be together, making memories for a lifetime. You can’t get that back.

We took a 3-day sailing trip around the Whitsunday Islands. We were on the ship on Christmas Eve and Christmas day – it was surreal. There were 7-8 other people on the ship from other parts of the world. My kids loved talking to these other people, from other cultures as one of the highlights. It was an unexpected surprise that something like that was the highlight for my kids – we still have them as friends on Facebook!

This is why travel is so important to me. I want to provide memories like that for your family as well, and I love it when we can work together — truly collaborate — towards that end.
