Alicia feels she has been blessed to be able to travel to so many wonderful destinations. Whether it be hiking in the Peruvian Amazon, partaking in the festivities of San Fermin or taking a traditional Tai Chi class while cruising down the Yangtze River, each travel experience has been unforgettable.
Alicia believes that each travel request is an opportunity to allow her clients to experience something new and exciting that will leave them with memories to last a lifetime. She doesn't have a favorite destination to plan but has a soft spot for planning honeymoons. Asked why and she says "it's the starting of a new journey in my clients' lives and it's a great feeling to know that they've choosen me to help plan such a significant event in their life. I had one client who came back from their honeymoon and blamed me for them getting pregnant! It must have been a great honeymoon!"
As a child, Alicia used take brochures from travel agencies in malls and cut out pictures of different destinations she wanted to travel to and tape them to her closet door. Her passion for travel combined with her excellent customer service skills made choosing a career as a travel advisor an easy one!
Although Alicia puts together customized travel itineraries for her clients she isn't afraid to "wing it" herself! She once backpacked in Europe for 3 months with no real plan of where she would go or stay. She ended up sleeping on a park bench one night in Pamplona during the Running of the Bulls! However, ask her today and she'll tell you that she was lucky to have a bench... most people were sleeping on the ground in the streets!
Although she's very well travelled, Alicia claims to have too many destinations left on her bucket list. They include an African Safari, The Galapagos, Eygpt, a cruise down the Nile, the Artic Flowedge, the Grand Canyon... ok ok, we get it; she loves travel!
