Travel Events in Los Angeles: Australia, The Alps, Switzerland and Sonoma!


It has been a change in Los Angeles that we have started to have travel events again!
Where do you want to go?

Welcome back and say G’day because: “There’s nothing like Australia!” I have loved my travels down under in OZ and cannot wait to return. Thank you to Tourism Australia for tasty treats from Chef Dan Churchill and news about where to go and how to get there! Thank you to Chris and Susan from TA, David Thomas from Qantas and Steve Paganelli from TripAdvisor! There are not only new non-stops on Qantas but you also have access to their expanded domestic network with explorer fares beyond the gateway cities! I am looking forward to Project Sunrise and my first time in the Whitsundays! Looking for fantastic food, great vibes, getting off the beaten path? See you in Australia.

Are you ready for THE BEST OF THE ALPS? 11 destinations! 5 countries! Winter or Summer (really EVERY SEASON it is stunning in the mountains!) –find sports from skiing to hiking, spa, cultures, authentic villages and so many great stories! Thank you to Sammy (we worked at the same Club Med Village in Colorado!) and the international team for the lovely event and lunch at FORMA!

Thank you to Divine Bonga and the Switzerland Tourism team for the beautiful Bern special Swiss Lunch! I am enchanted by the landscapes and year round outdoor adventures in Bern! Let’s meet to ski the peaks of Piz Gloria & Jungfraujoch and navigate on the lakes of Thun and Brienz, paraglide in Interlaken and then see the 72 waterfalls in Grindenwald. Join me to see this UNESCO world heritage area in the heart of Switzerland. I mean–they speak CHEESE! I want to go to the Emmenthal dairy, and the Kumbly biscuit class and go in a horse drawn carriage! I am going to walk on a glacier like BOND, Jane BOND! or at least see where they filmed in Schilthorn! and then wander in the car free village of Murren. Want to go on a Velogemel with me? Meet me at the TOP OF EUROPE for the brand new Eiger express.

Are you ready to go where “Life Opens Up?” Thank you to Sonoma County Tourism for the lovely event at the 1 Hotel West Hollywood.
