A Luxury Travel Leisure Specialist for over 30 years, I have explored some of the world's most unique and off-the-beaten path wondrous destinations. In many areas I was among the first American visitors, traveling to such emerging nations as Vietnam, Bhutan, North Korea, Brunei, Cyprus, Malawi, Kosovo and Bosnia, to mention a few. Over the past 15 years I have developed an avid interest in "soft adventure travel". Since 1991 I have been a proud member of the Travelers Century Club, where one is required to have visited at least 100 countries to join. I am always searching for unusual, interesting places to suggest to my clients.
