Mary Beth got a temporary summer gig doing corporate travel planning and enjoyed its fast pace so much that she stuck with it! She switched to retail travel, and has been with Bon Voyage Travel since 2002. She is a member of the International Airlines Travel Agent Network, as well as a member of Bon Voyage Travel's 2005 Summit Club, the agency's highest recognition for sales & service. Mary Beth's travel tip: Visit Pipis Restaurant Bar in Puerto Vallarta. "They have the best guacamole you ever had," Mary Beth critiques. And lastly, don't leave home without a stain remover stick.

39 YEARS EXPERIENCE
Australia and New Zealand. Mary Beth already has a well-planned trip in mind that takes her from city to Outback, and tropics to glaciers. She'd land in Sydney and stay at the Four Seasons Hotel, do the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb, see the famed, sail-evoking Opera House and shop. After that, it's off to the countryside. She'd visit the 19th-century parliament building and 170-year-old St. Patrick's Cathedral in Melbourne, hunt for opals in Coober Pedy, see the sunset at the monolithic Ayers Rock in central Australia, ride a hot air balloon in tropical Cairns, and take a catamaran cruise through the Great Barrier Reef. Then she'll head to New Zealand to visit Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World in Auckland, compare the mud pools and geysers of Rotorua with those in her hometown state, Wyoming, take a helicopter ride over the South Alps in Mount Cook National Park, hike the glaciers in Fiordland National Park and take in Christchurch's beautiful gardens and Old-English architecture... After the three-week tour, Mary Beth feels she'll need to decompress, so "maybe I'll stop by Tahiti on the way home, just to relax."
