When I was a kid, vacations were long, hot, sandy days at nearby beaches. The local beach was great, but it didn’t satisfy my adventurous spirit. So, I traveled through my books and dreamed of seeing the world one day. Then came my first trip abroad, my first trip anywhere, and I was immediately hooked.
I walked up the stairs from the Tube station into the amazing, sensory overload of Piccadilly Circus in London, and gasped. The sights and sounds of that ancient city consumed my senses and wrapped around me. Bright, blinking neon signs covered the shops, restaurants, and flats that lined the square. The roar of truck, car, and taxi engines joined with the talking, laughing, and yelling of thousands of people to create a beautiful buzz of sound. The scent of spicy, pungent Indian food and greasy pizza drifted over to me from small hole-in-the-wall places that offered free salad with a slice. I was amazed, bewildered, and really happy.
I thought:Everyone should see this place.
That first trip made me a better person, more curious and openminded, and inspired a lifelong love of travel and learning. Life is so much better and richer because of travel, and I want everyone to experience that joy.
Getting people out in the world is my passion, one that I want to share with you. Travel will inspire you, help you see the world in a new way, and introduce you to sights, sounds, and tastes that will astound you. Whether you journey to the next town or around the world, you’ll never be the same.
I created Storied Adventures for people who want to see the world, walk in the footsteps of a favorite fictional character or author, or experience a period in history. As an avid traveler, expert planner, and person who seeks out the extraordinary, I’ll craft an exciting experience just for you. My goal is to fulfill your literary dreams and plan remarkable adventures for you with memories to last a lifetime.
