Luxury travel is my style. But traveling first class has more to do with planning than simply throwing money on tickets. And when it comes to planning, I hold a Ph.D. on the matter.

I am, Donna. I hold a Doctor in Organizational Management and specialize in Management Education.

My love of travel led me to the Airlines Industry, where I worked as a flight attendant for 23 years. Naturally, as a flight attendant, I was an avid traveler.

Although traveling continues to excite me, as well as enrich my life, my experience in the field has changed the way I travel. Therefore, nowadays, traveling from a mature experience is my perspective. Thus, luxury travel.

Therefore, I am comfortable, confident, and delighted to share my first-hand accounts, personal favorites, and the do’s and don’ts of the travel industry with you, dearest readers.

I am sure my expertise in the field as a general as well as a luxury travel advisor, will help you gain greater insights into the traveling industry and set you on a course to better prepare and partake in the wonderful journeys that await you.
