Kathy Burns LamphierA constant explorer and wanderer. I have visited all 7 continents, including Antarctica. Although I’ve enjoyed them all, my heart has always been in Italy and Africa-particularly with the majestic African wildlife. Wherever the animals are is where you’ll find me. A travel advisor for over 35 years, focused on creating “bucket list” dream trips that include experiences like heli-hiking in New Zealand’s Franz Joseph Glacier area, a stay on Australia’s Kangaroo Island, African safari’s, a family reunion in a Tuscan villa, and so much more.

10 years working for a large corporate travel company, managing a 100-person team, had put me out of touch with travelers. I missed designing and then hearing about their adventures! So, in 1988, I left my corporate position and opened Posh Travel 10 short weeks later. Being a boutique agency allows more personalized attention to travelers like you, and I would love the opportunity to start crossing items off your bucket list.

I have been a Virtuoso Travel Advisor since 2005, but have been traveling since I was a child. My father worked for an airline and I was exposed to the wonders of our world at a very early age, and the wanderlust has been with me ever since.

I love every aspect of travel, from the planning to the packing and of course, the actual traveling. I devour travel guides and am always looking for inspiration for my or my clients’ next trip.

I love the romance of travel and the lure of exotic locations, and combining those into a special honeymoon is my favorite part of being a Virtuoso Travel Advisor. Setting up a picnic on a secluded cove, having breakfast delivered by canoe to your over-water bungalow, arranging a meeting with a local naturalist to observe a Meerkat colony from only a few steps away, or perhaps a private wine tasting with one of the region’s top winemakers, these are just a few of the surprises I have in store for you.

I can’t wait to design the trip of your dreams!

Travel is my passion. Whether I am booking for new clients, family or friends, my goal is to create a unique and memorable vacation for each and every person.

Travel has been an integral part of my life. I have been fortunate to be able to cultivate this passion and share my knowledge and experience. My mission is to provide my clients with life lasting experiences, guidance and service. I strive to make every vacation seamless and for me a great day is when my clients return happy and fulfilled.

Being part of Virtuoso allows me to have global access to some of the best suppliers of travel.

Allow me to help plan your dream!

I have always been intrigued with travel and what there is to explore and experience all over the world. My father was in the Air Force so we traveled back and forth many time across the US. I enjoy helping my clients have the most memorable travel experiences.

Hawaii is one of my favorite destinations-each island is different from the other. Being a member of Virtuoso we have so many wonderful places for you to experience. From relaxing on the beach to cruising the Danube to trekking the Swiss Alps or just about anything that suits your desire- I would love to help you with your travel adventure.
