They say you are always one decision away from a totally different life. That stands true for me when I decided to join my mother in the family business in 1999, after having worked for several years for a Fortune 500 company in an international sales capacity. I always shared my mom’s desire to explore the many corners of the world and recognize how deeply ingrained this passion is in me. Although I was born in Madrid, my main childhood memories are from the many years in Venezuela and Peru and South Africa. After college I resided in Milan, so being a specialist in Italy is natural but I also enjoy counseling travelers seeking experiences in other European countries, South America, Africa, and Asia. I relish exchanging personal experiences with clients and most importantly hearing where they have explored, what lifestyles they have experienced, what cuisines they have tasted, what new relationships they have established for years to come. My two young daughters, Sofia and Gabriela, are now actively part of my travel tribe, often visiting our family members in Europe. The most recent adventure was to the Galapagos with Lindblad/National Geographic Expeditions, where as Explorer Club members, they learned how to drive a zodiac on their own, swam with sea lions and recounted their favorite fish tale to the entire ship one evening. These are memories to embrace for a long time and have instilled a passion in them to crave more adventures! Life is what you make of it! TRAVEL!
