European Journeys

There are countless reasons to visit Europe, but you only need one to get started. Europe is a destination that you can go to over and over and never experience the same thing twice. Rich in history, beautiful architecture, amazing food, friendly locals, fine arts and music, and some of the best wine and beer in the world - there isn't much not to love about Europe! Whether you are an active traveler, or want to slow down and breath it all in - Europe is the way to go. From castles to mountains, beautiful coastlines to ancient walled cities, Europe is the perfect destination for couples, solo travelers, multi-generational families, and groups. 

Experience Europe, Your Way

Having lived in Germany for over 10 years and personally traveling all over Europe for nearly 30 years, we know Europe. We know all things unusual, unexpected, and truly exceptional. Through our relationships with our vetted travel partners, we keep a pulse on the continent, taking our clients far beyond the typical sights to experience the unique and undiscovered side of Europe that you don’t read about in the guidebooks and aren’t part of the cookie-cutter tours. 


Planning a European adventure in 2025 or beyond? There's a new travel requirement you need to know about – ETIAS. As your European Travel Expert, I will make sure all of the details are handled.

What is ETIAS? It stands for the European Travel Information and Authorization System, and it's designed to enhance the safety and security of travel to Europe. Starting in 2025, travelers from countries currently enjoying visa-free access to the Schengen Area, including the United States, will need to obtain an ETIAS authorization before embarking on their European journey.

**Here's What You Need to Know:**

Application Process: Applying for ETIAS is straightforward and can be done online. It involves providing some basic personal information, travel details, and answering a few security-related questions.

Coverage: ETIAS will grant access to all 26 Schengen Area countries, allowing travelers to explore the rich cultural tapestry of Europe seamlessly.

Processing Time: In most cases, the ETIAS authorization is granted within minutes, making it a quick and convenient step in your travel plans.

Multiple Entries: ETIAS is valid for multiple short stays (up to 90 days) within a 180-day period, allowing for flexibility in your European adventures.
