About Me:

Travel for me is all about the experience. The experience of planning, the anticipation of the trip, getting to a destination and then immersing myself. Every aspect is important and every detail is important to me; even which exact seat on the plane is likely to give me the best experience. I’m all about goals and goal setting. I love working with clients to help them figure out what is most important for them. When they’re not sure, being able to use my own experience and network is where it gets fun as no two people are the same. I’m also an expert when it comes to using points and miles and am happy to help you get the most out of them.

About Me:

About Me:

Probably born a world traveler, I developed a passion to share travel experiences, to create far-away and close-by journeys, to fulfill my traveling clients with that “I want more of that destination” quest they have. Never monotone, always enticing the world is open for discoveries. UNESCO City Escapades. Custom tours (culinary, nature, architectural, K-Pop, agro-tourism), Cruises. Honeymoons, Bon Voyage. Paul.

Client Testimonials:

Paul took us to South Korea for his annual “Eternal Korea, Cherry Blossom Tour”. From Seoul to Busan, we sampled so many aspects of Korean History, of Korean life style (yes, we learned to make Kimchi), Korean stunning landscape and UNESCO sites, watching Pearl divers, visiting Folk Villages, shopping at street markets for snacks! Truly a life time experience. Eve Van Cauter, MD, University of Chicago. April 2017.

Client Quotes:

Spain was wonderful and we all really appreciated the hard work you put into finding us such great hotels as well as tours and travel suggestions. Our guide at the Alhambra was incredibly knowledgeable as was Sebastian in Madrid. We ended up spending 7.5 hours with him including a long lunch. He sure knows his history and was eager to educate us. I think he appreciated how curious we all were.” -Pam, Laura & Jeff ”

We had a fabulous vacation. The time you spent finding out our needs was clear from the itinerary. You did an unbelievable job on our itinerary and the guides and drivers were awesome. The itinerary was flawless and hotels were very nice. I carefully kept tract of the name of each guide with the intention of singling the best out for praise, but I rate each of them at 10 out 10. They were all exceedingly professional and knowledgeable, projected pride in their work, and did a wonderful job of seamlessly adjusting their tours to match Jackie’s abilities. I will be happy to serve as a reference for you.” -Jackie & Bruce

“For our honeymoon Tom personally planned all details of our three week trip to Thailand. Every little detail was well planned, including the best hotels, guides, drivers conveniences, adventure, etc., all at a reasonable cost. We had a a fabulous experience and we would not hesitate to have Tom do travel planning for us in the future.” – Nancy & Jeff, Ashland, OR
