A travel dreamer (and doer, as often as possible) that loves cities, seasides and countrysides in equal parts. I love experiencing other cultures and finding local gems to share.
My travel style has evolved over the years, and continues to. In all honesty, it is often impacted by my available budget or time. I personally prefer an easy pace to my days when traveling – if in a new city or sightseeing destination, I'd make one or two plans for that day then spend the rest of the time wandering the neighborhoods for unplanned experiences or finding little local gems or just people-watching in a cafe. I'm approaching an empty-nester life stage so hoping we will find more time (and resources) to travel even more!

We are incredibly grateful to have had Martha help plan our 10 day trip to Cartagena and Barú. From our first call she was a great partner who listened and understood exactly what we were looking for. Not only was she quick to provide us with a curated range of options that were spot on, but also several that showed she went above and beyond traditional sources to find something that's just right. On her own initiative she also secured us upgrades and other benefits at our hotels. I can't recommend Martha highly enough as someone who dives into every detail, goes the extra mile, and is passionate about what she does. We could not be in better hands!

Martha was the most knowledgeable travel professional I have ever worked with! My husband and I had very different ideas of what we wanted our vacation experience to be. Martha listened carefully and provided several different options which were all spot on. We ultimately decided on Palm Springs which met my needs of warmth and relaxation and my husband's of adventure. Once we decided, Martha researched accommodations and we ultimately chose a winner! She also went above and beyond with recommendations for restaurants, activities and shopping! When we had a problem with our room upon check-in, Martha quickly got involved and remedied the situation, taking that whole problem off our plate! We had a wonderful trip!

Martha was the ideal travel advisor. She researched two countries and provided six choices based on what we told her we wanted. She was always responsive. The place we picked was fantastic. We got VIP treatment with many extras like early check in and treats in our hotel rooms. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is terrific. She's already planned and booked my next getaway.
