I stumbled into the travel industry quite by accident in the late 70's, and have been loving all things travel ever since.  I am a certified travel consultant and been in the industry for over 23 years. MC Destination Travel was established in 2005 and has been affiliated with Travel Professionals International (TPI) for over 15 years.  I approach travel with a sense of excitement and adventure--no matter where the destination. I look forward to the opportunity to assist you with your next travel vacation.

If there's one thing that I've discovered about travel over the years, is that your adventure is not based only on the destination--but the experiences and people you meet along the way. So I invite you to try a new destination, a new culture and to step out of your comfort zone--you won't be sorry you did.
