Tara has loved and dreamed about travel since she was a little girl. Every Christmas, her globetrotting cousins would visit from Virginia, and entertain her with stories about growing up in Greece, high school years in Panama, and other travels to Thailand, Paris, Africa. She sat mesmerized hearing about their experiences. Her own family adventured in Mexico, Caribbean, Quebec, and New England.
Years passed, and as a teen living in a town with snow from October to April, Tara would curl up with her Let’s Go Europe book, planning and daydreaming about future itineraries. Would she spend the night in Cheb? Detour to Edam for a slice of cheese and a bike ride? Get lost in the maze of Venice? As it turned out, many daydreams came true, and many more are still to come.
With over 25 years experience, Tara’s knowledge and enthusiasm, together she can create your trip of a lifetime.
