My Travel Story
Ana has more than 30 years experience in the travel industry. For the last 27 of those years, we have been fortunate to have her at the helm as our Manager. Clients appreciate her calm, knowledgeable, efficient manner and thoughtful advice. Ana's love of travel and her genuine interest in people and other cultures strongly influence her role both as Consultant and as Manager.
Ana’s personal philosophy is one that values continual learning and professional development. Despite her many years of experience she makes a commitment annually to seek out, explore and learn more about some part of this amazing world in which we live. Sometimes her journeys are industry arranged educational tours, such as her Insight Vacations tour of Switzerland last autumn. At other times, they are tours that she has researched, planned and created herself. Occasionally, she opens these tours and invites our special like-minded clients to participate with her. During her career, she has visited more than 30 different countries, participated in various cruises and tours and is particularly passionate about all that Italy, Australia, Portugal and South Africa have to offer the discerning traveler. Come in for a visit and prepare to catch the travel bug!
Below are a few examples of Ana's travels:
In 2013 Ana escorted an intrepid group of adventurers on a tour of South Africa. Their once in a lifetime itinerary included untouched beaches, breathtaking scenery and plenty of opportunities to see wildlife in their natural habitats, especially during their 3-day safari in a private game reserve in the Eastern Cape. Of course we have some fabulous photos of that unforgettable excursion. Click here to see our photo album.
2014 offered a summer to reconnect with roots, when Ana took a special group to visit and explore her homeland, Portugal. It goes without saying that everyone loved the experience and got so much more than the regular "touristic" perspective on this beautiful country.
Ana's Baltic Cruise, including Scandinavia and Russia in July 2015, was a resounding success with everyone bringing back amazing stories, fabulous photos and many precious memories.
During the summer of 2016 Ana’s adventure took her and others to Alaska. They began with a wonderful cruise up the coast from Vancouver, but then continued going on to explore the interior. Be sure to ask her about it when you stop by to visit!
