“Foodventures” in Italy

By Emily Barrett on August 5, 2019

Sharing a meal is a small celebration of culture, togetherness, and an indulgence of the senses. The Italians invented apertivos, pre-meal beverages intended to whet the appetite, and digestivos, an alcoholic beverage to aid digestion aptly served before and after meals.

Incredible India

By Sandy Schadler on July 11, 2019

India is a destination hovering near the top of my bucket list for years.

I'm Vice President of Marketing, not an advisor. I have always been a marketer, in a career spanning more than a couple decades, so why ask me this question? I do have the unique perspective of seeing what it takes to successfully connect our travel advisors,  customers, and supplier partners (hotels, cruise lines, tourism offices, etc).
