European and Destination Travel Agent Expert

With such a passion for travel and a history and extensive knowledge in trip planning, I am a pro at finding affordable accommodations and engaging activities that are sure to make any trip special and memorable. I believe I can offer a fresh new approach and provide out-of-the-box ideas to spice up any vacation or getaway. To me, travel is an essential part of life, as it gives you the chance to see the world through another culture's eyes and experience things you never knew you could do, as well as discovering delicious cuisines different than what you may be used to! Travel has given me a new perspective on life, and allowed me to step out of my comfort zone more than once, and I believe everyone deserves escapades like this! As a travel agent, it means a great deal to me to help others see the world the way I do and have them gain a deep appreciation for the planet we call home. With travel, the possibilities are endless and everyone deserves amazing ways to experience them.

Amazing Trip
Macie helped us plan an awesome trip to Rome and Florence this past summer. She is really familiar with Rome and gave us some amazing suggestions for restaurants and non-touristy things to do. I would recommend her to anyone looking to travel to Italy.

A vacation I will never forget!
Macie, Hi! Huge thank you for planning and organizing an amazing 3 week vacation in Italy! I was overwhelmed by the thought of planning 3 weeks throughout Italy but Macie took the stress away and created a wonderful itinerary. She booked all accommodations ensuring the best locations while providing an extensive list of restaurant recommendations for a taste of local cuisines. Extremely professional and knowledgeable Macie listened to my interests and put together a list of museums and excursions I would enjoy. From making fresh pasta on a Tuscan vineyard to boating around the Amalfi coast with a local family as our tour guide, all expectations were exceeded! A vacation I will never forget!
