After graduating from the University of Idaho I taught for several years. I fell in love with travel after trips to Europe and Alaska in 1991 and 1992 with a High School International Folk Dance Troupe. Since 1994, I have been in the travel industry, where planning vacations or extensive trips became my passion. Whenever I travel, my learning experiences become top on the list to share with my clients. Opportunities to travel have enriched my life. Each new travel experience encourages me to find ways to help clients get the most from their vacations.

I planned a 34-day trip through Australia with very specific wants. For my outstanding itinerary, I won Tourism Australia's Opal Award for Best FIT (Fully Independent Travel) Itinerary. This award recognizes excellence in planning independent and custom itineraries for clients by creating true experiences.
By living in Spokane, WA, the outdoor capital of the Inland Northwest, I'm able to enjoy our beautiful area. With four seasons, and home to winter sports, white water rafting, hiking, blue lakes and streams, wine and micro brews, and great farm county which brings the food to table experiences within easy reach of our restaurants in Spokane. It's fun to use some of our specialties in comparable experiences worldwide.
Countries specialized in include: Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Tahiti, and Cook Islands. I also enjoy planning trips to England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Czech Republic, Canada and the United States, especially Hawaii, Alaska, and the Pacific Northwest.
Please call or email! I would love to help you plan your next memory!
" The New Zealand trip she put together for us was perfect n every aspect. She says this was just a "normal" trip she's used to planning, but we have never experienced such a variety of hotels, chalets, villas, and B&B's.. almost every one with a breath-taking view. And the different experiences she planned for us: once again, perfect for us. When there was an earthquake in the middle of our trip, Donna had already checked that the airport had reopened and our hotel was okay, before we even knew about the earthquake! We recommend you contact Donna." Wayne and Jeanne
