After 27 years of planning vacations for travelers, Julie has built up a reputation for dependability and thoroughness. She has worked at Bon Voyage Travel for more than 15 years and is a member of its Summit Club, which recognizes agents for superior sales and service. She is also a member of the International Airlines Travel Agent Network. Living all over the United States has given Julie a good sense for organization and detail. This served her well when a couple wanted to go on a South American cruise. She had two weeks to plan it while the couple continued traveling on the road. "We had to do a lot of calling back and forth to make arrangements and have them get their shots and visas," she recalls. "But we made the deadline!" It's all in a day's work for Julie, who sees each travel-planning project as a personal endeavor. "I just take care of the client like I would like to be taken care of," she says. Julie's travel tip. "Book early to have everything run smoothly and get everything well coordinated," says Julie.
35 YEARS EXPERIENCE
A Tahiti and Polynesia cruise was the best beach experience Julie ever had. "If you want to fall out of society and go someplace great, that's the place to go," she says. Julie flew to Papeete, Tahiti and spent three nights in an over water, thatch-roofed bungalow at the well-appointed InterContinental Resort Tahiti. She spent her days on the beach of a crystal clear lagoon. "There's no deep water within the lagoons," she explains, "so you see the reflection of the sand, turquoise blue water and a lot of tropical fish. You don't even need a snorkel." Then she boarded the Tahitian Princess, the smallest ship in the cruise line's fleet. She stayed in a balcony cabin, "absolutely mandatory when you're in Tahiti" to take in views of swaying palms and clear, blue water, she says. The 10-day cruise made stops at the Cook Islands, Raiatea and Bora Bora in French Polynesia, and the Polynesian island of Moorea. Fantastic destination!
