O U R PLANNING S E R V I C E S
Why Use Our Planning Services?
I am a storyteller by nature, so what better way to demonstrate the value of my planning services than with two similar yet drastically different stories.
Both stories start off the same, but the experience is completely different. You and your honey were never able to go on a honeymoon, but here you are 10 years later, and ready to enjoy your time together..... in Italy!
Online Bookers (Clickers):
Click. Click. Click. Booked. Confirmation emails received. Reminder email received shortly before travel. Hop on the plane. 45 minute layover in airport means you must RUN FOR YOUR LIFE to get to your next flight. You and your honey are not seated together and airline is not able to accomodate. What wasn't clear at booking was the "upgraded seats" were not FIRST CLASS, but infact assigned seating to ensure you were sitting together. Arrive in Rome. Pick up your rental vehicle. Freak out when driving, parking and navigating the city. Spend three nights in the city to head out to the countryside for cooking classes, horseback riding and wine tasting. Half way to your hotel, you realize there is no signal in the countryside and therefore your navigation system is not working. Finally make it to the hotel and decide you want to cancel one of the prescheduled tours so you can do some exploring on your own. But WHO DO YOU CALL? Your trip ends and you head back home. You're exhausted from all of the moving parts you had to handle on your own while in Italy. You need a vacation from your vacation.
