Puerto Vallarta travel specialist zoom

Puerto Vallarta on Bandaras Bay!

I love Puerto Vallarta on the Bandaras Bay of Mexico. It's a safe and upscale city with lots of hotels, shopping, beaches, great food and excursions. My favorite place to stay is this condominium, where each villa has its own pool and full kitchen. Each sleeps 6 - 4 in air-conditioned rooms and 2 by the pool (very romantic). Villas range in size from 2200+ to 6000+ for the penthouse. The penthouse and Villa 9 are connecting -- that accommodates 12. The staff is fabulous and very considerate. A chef is available and a massage staff will come to the villa. Rental is Thursday to Thursday, with a welcome party on Friday night. A two-story penthouse with full-time chef and houseman is the ultimate offer in this property. I have owned here and have stayed 8 times. Just love it!

Innsbruck Austria escorted tour zoom


We just returned from this trip of a lifetime to ski on 9 Olympic-style ski resorts and celebrate Fat Tuesday in Venice. Our group of 27 -- skiers (10) and non-skiers (17 including me) had a blast. There was so much to do - group excursions to Salzburg, Venice, Bavarian Royal Castles and days to explore Innsbruck on our own. We met in the bar each evening to share our days and plan dinner. Folks came from all over NC, with a couple from Atlanta and we all became great friends. We're planning another trip next March to the Italian Alps.
