Bio:

I have been involved in the travel industry for over 35 years, beginning in Lloydminster, Alberta. Our agency had a contract to handle Southern Frontier Airlines which flew in from Calgary just a few times per week in the early eighties. We had to do everything from radioing the pilots to let them know of the wind direction, acting as their taxi service to the hotel, and issuing hand written tickets for last minute travellers arriving at the airport! All on a very small and intimate scale, this experience nonetheless opened up the exciting world of travel for me!

Since moving to Calgary in 1987, I have worked as both a travel consultant and manager, and there is no doubt that travel is in my blood. I love what I do, and I feel very fortunate to have been a part of the evolution of the travel industry through the years.

OCEAN CRUISE OR RIVER CRUISE – LET ME HELP
Ocean cruising and river cruising are passions of mine. Both options afford wonderful experiences, but each provides a unique experience. My husband and I are four star Mariners with Holland America, and have travelled with Avalon, AMA Waterways and Scenic river cruise lines.

MULTI-GENERATIONAL TRAVEL
Over the years, I have also had the opportunity to work with many grandparents who want to “Spend their kid’s inheritance”!! Together, we have created vacations where the entire family travels together – Beaches, Disney Cruise Lines, Windstar Cruises, all inclusive vacations, or European coach tours are just some of the family vacation ideas that have been brought forward to me.

I would be delighted to assist you in creating a vacation to remember.

Testimonial:

Laurie, Thank you for looking after us! Your choice of Avalon was the best!! They took such good care of us! I’m so glad you recommended the prepaid gratuities and prepaid airport transfers. That eased the trip. Avalon was so well organized and so personable. Their service and accommodations were excellent.
It has been an absolute treat to get to spend two weeks with a dear friend. Thank for all you did!!

We arrived back in Calgary late Sunday night and wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the Panama Canal cruise.

We really liked the Eurodam, and in particular for this cruise it was great to have the wide promenade deck for early morning walks as we had really good weather throughout. Our signature suite was lovely and we enjoyed the extra space that it gave us. Our Panama Canal excursion was a wonderful experience - we were able to transit the remainder of the canal after Gatun Lake through to Panama City in the smaller boat used by the excursion company which really gave us an up close experience travelling through the canal. We enjoyed all of the ports we visited, particularly Half Moon Cay (what an amazing beach!), Curacao, Cartegena and Costa Rica.

Thank you so much for providing the excellent bottle of wine in our suite, which was a lovely surprise. Don especially likes red wine and he was sure to take a picture of the label so that he could try to purchase it here.

All in all it was a most enjoyable holiday and our timing in missing the very cold weather in Calgary could not have been better! While on board we took advantage of the opportunity to purchase 2 more future cruise deposits.

Thank you for all of your assistance in arranging this cruise for us.

All the best.

Merry Christmas & thank you for your warm wishes. Everything went well - without a hitch. Once we got set up to check in on line things worked well. Our accommodations in Munich were great & would recommend them. The hotel was right across from the central train station & 15" walk from Marienplatz, the town centre. The side trip to Neuschwanstein was lovely. Good idea to book through Expedia as it meant not having to run around looking for a ticket agent. The tour was well done.

Once we got to Prague we were in Avalon hands & they did a great job of getting us to/from airport & hotels. The cruise was very enjoyable. again the crew were courteous & attentive to every need. food was excellent. The tours were well conducted. If you have any particular questions about the cruise, don't hesitate to ask. It was a good idea to go business class.
