Hello!  I’m Trish. Welcome to As a high school Spanish teacher, I fell in love with European travel when I first took my students to France and Spain 20 years ago. Since then, I’ve traveled to Europe every summer and have journeyed to other places around the globe including Asia, Central America and South America.

Travel heightens my senses and reminds me to see things with open eyes, an open heart and an open mind — even if I’m just “traveling” in my own town. It provides me with opportunities to learn about the people, history, architecture, art and cuisine of other cultures and, in turn, about myself.  As a veteran tour guide and guidebook researcher, I have the good fortune of sharing all that with fellow travelers.  And now, I’m continuing my travel experiences in America, Egypt, Russia, the Caribbean, Asia, and beyond. I hope you’ll join me on my current adventures and share in my love of travel.  Bon voyage and Journey Well!

      I won’t be in town for the Tour de France, but if ever you are and want an awesome place to perch yourself with an unobstructed view and virtually no people around, let me know. I’ll give you the secret location I found last year.
