French Polynesia

As a French Polynesian and Tahitian Travel specialist, I love to share all things about these beautiful islands in the Pacific Ocean.
We cruised from island to island aboard our Paul Gauguin small passenger ocean ship and witnessed unspoiled geography. For instance, the island of Huahine only has 387 inhabitants, though it’s a vast island with wonder and charm.

Natives hold tight to protect their heritage and ancient cultures. The people are loving, warm and welcoming. They are so willing to share their stories, their families and their love for every tourist.

Red Orchid Travel Recommends:
• Paul Gauguin Cruises
• Windstar Cruises
• GoWay Travels
• Custom Tours

Riviera Maya, Mexico

Riviera Maya, Mexico is a go-to travel destination for many, with its year-round warmth, and tourism welcome. This is the Grand Moon Palace, and a perfect destination for anyone with reciprocity to several other resorts on the same premises, and a transportation system to shuttle patrons around. The best water slides, ask me how I know. 🙂

On my recent trip, I was thrilled to witness the release of baby turtles out to the ocean beyond, so heartwarming!

There is something for everyone in Mexico! Let me help you find the perfect resort to meet your style!

Red Orchid Travel Recommends:
• Palace resorts
• Playa resorts
• Palladium resorts
• AIC, Hard Rock and Nobu resorts

Jordan is known as the Middle East’s “peace country,” and while visiting during Ramadan, we were able to admire the gentility and genuine nature of its people during their sacrificial fasting days, where prayer and abstaining from food and water all day was a requirement.

The historical culture was evident everywhere we travelled, from the moment we crossed the border from Israel, through our adventures in Petra and Jerash, and our continued stay in Amman. I want to return, there’s so much to see, and do yet for us.

The desert was a marvel, the heat unusually high for May, but our group prevailed and returned home with great memories of a beautiful adventure.

Located in the southern Caribbean where sunshine, beach, golf, boating, or diving go hand in hand together. Languages spoken in Curacao are English, Dutch and Papiamento. The locals are warm and friendly and the island is just gorgeous. Tourists can arrive by air for a land vacation with plenty of resort selections, or by cruise ship.

If Curacao is on your wish list, we need to talk! I’ve been to 13 resorts on the island, and think it’s a fabulous cultural and ethnic experience.

Red Orchid Travel Recommends:
• Newest Sandals Resort — it has the most spacious ocean-side luxury resort with a world-class golf course, and romance specialties for weddings, honeymoons, baby-moons, and all occasion celebrations
• Celebrity Cruises also has itineraries with Curacao stops

New England in Autumn

Autumn offers an entire artist palette of explosive colourful outdoors. What better way to view it all than to embark on a New England itinerary with Princess Cruises?

The outdoors beckoned us in late October, wool blankets ready on all the chaise lounges, and views of spectacular beauty to marvel over.

With so much to do aboard and our port of calls, I highly recommend this adventure!
