I have worked in the travel industry for over 20 yrs and while began as a leisure travel consultant I sort of fell into VIP travel which is basically doing both personal and business travel for the wealthy.
I began my career not in travel, but in show business as a singer/actress.
The travel bug bit me after my first trip abroad to Italy. My second international trip to Rio de Janeiro truly changed my life, just three short yrs later I proceeded to move to Rio (cats and all) where we lived for 4 wonderful yrs. Even though I moved back to New York, Rio became my second home (to this day) as I eventually bought an apartment their. I've traveled the continent of South America extensively, so you will see many Next Stop Articles from this part of the world.
I'm obviously passionate about travel and have recently partnered with a style consultant/makeup artist and we are collaborating on luxury shopping trips around the globe, so stay tuned.
Please subscribe to my site so you will not miss a single Next Stop destination, info on my luxury shopping trips or well, whatever else I'm up to! Feel free to contact me with any questions and/or comments, as I would love to hear from you.
