I decided to start a career in the travel industry over a decade ago because of my passion for planning trips and making clients’ travel dreams a reality. I quickly learned there was something even more to this amazing job – the wonderful sense of happiness and purpose I feel when my clients return from a trip I’ve planned for them and share their experiences with me. There’s absolutely nothing more rewarding or exciting!
I just spent a few days at the Four Seasons Washington, D.C., one of the mid-Atlantic’s finest luxury properties located in the heart of Georgetown and a stone’s throw from most of the area’s top attractions. Able to support over 40 languages, it’s a home away from home to guests from all over the world – everyone from business professionals to diplomats to families like mine. My experience was exceptional in every way – it was an absolute treat to be a guest here!
My latest travels took me to the Caribbean island of Grand Cayman – a gem of a tropical destination best known for famous Seven Mile Beach, warm and friendly locals, and a fantastic dining and shopping scene. While I was there, I spent some time as a guest at the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman, which lived up to every expectation I had about the property.
I recently visited Kimpton Seafire on the Caribbean island of Grand Cayman, Kimpton Hotels’ first resort property to open in the world. I’ve sent quite a few happy clients since they opened their doors in November so was anxious to check it out myself and get a better understanding of the Kimpton brand as a whole.
My latest travels took me to the exciting country of Spain. Each year, Brownell plans a special trip full of adventure and fun for top sales producers – Mallorca and Barcelona were on this year’s agenda. Traveling with my colleagues to learn about different destinations around the world is an invaluable opportunity and enriches my knowledge to help me better advise my clients.
My family traveled to Cabo San Lucas for spring break this year. I chose Cabo so we could see whales, ride camels (yes, you can ride camels in Cabo!), and sail around the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas, but also to stay at recently opened Chileno Bay, the newest hotel in Auberge Resorts’ collection. For those of you familiar with Auberge hotels (think Auberge du Soleil, Calistoga Ranch and Esperanza to name a few), any property that falls under their umbrella is guaranteed to be extraordinary, and Chileno Bay proved to be no exception. The service, setting, design, and cuisine are outstanding.
