Before we jumped in too deeply here on the blog, I wanted to write a quick post to tell you a little about myself.
I’ve been working in the group tourism industry since I founded Friendly Planet Travel 30 years ago. As you’ve probably picked up from our Web site, or you already know if you’ve ever taken a vacation with us, Friendly Planet Travel is a full-service agency that specializes in exceptional tour deals to exotic destinations in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, South America, and the South Pacific. We also organize cruises in the Mediterranean and Far East.
I’ve spent my life traveling throughout the U.S. and around the world, and have picked up a few things along the way — such as how to plan high-quality, affordable vacation packages to some of the most phenomenal destinations in the world.
I’m a bona-fide travel industry expert (or so they tell me ), and I’m IATAN and ARC accredited. I’m also a member of the American Society of Travel Agents, International Airlines Agent Network, International Air Travel Association, and Cruise Lines International Association.
