My Background:

A 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.

Many Thanks!

Posted in Aruba

Kathy helped us with a relatively last minute request for assistance organizing a vacation. The only problem was that, as is our practice, we weren't sure where we wanted to go! She walked us through a number of options, and came up with great alternatives for each. We finally settled on Aruba, and we had a fabulous time. She was terrific! Thank you, Kathy!

Seville Trip

Posted in Seville, Spain

We had a wonderful trip to Seville. This is our second stay at Hotel Alfonso. Normally we would have tried another hotel, but Hotel Alfonso was such a great place to stay last visit that we went again. It was a great choice. The hotel itself is beautiful. The staff members are very helpful. We asked a LOT of questions and got lots of help for tours, side trips, etc. Every question we had was answered with a smile and...
