Where We Want to Travel in 2023!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you had a fun-filled week! If you’ve been following me on social media, you know I travel personally and virtually to many new places researching destinations for my clients. In fact, I’m touring in Israel right now (WOW! What an amazing life-changing journey!) and posting about my experience. If you aren’t following along, click on my social media icons below so you can check out the 20+ countries and hundreds of photos featured just in the past year.

2023 has started with a bang and the demand for travel is at an all-time high! We’re all chasing the thrill that comes with discovering a new place or revisiting a favorite destination in an unexpected way. I recently came across an article written by fellow travelers Amy Cassell and Emma Franke for Virtuoso, profiling some interesting new destinations that I think you’ll enjoy.

Virtuoso is the leading global network of luxury travel advisors, who work with top destinations and a vetted portfolio of the best travel brands globally. Travelers who have a Virtuoso Advisor like XOOM Tours can tap into a world of in-the-know expertise, unbelievable travel perks, support throughout their travels, and – most importantly – warmer welcomes, deeper connections, and superior experiences in the places they visit.

Virtuoso travel advisors reveal the under-the-radar spots on their Wanderlists.

It’s exciting to discover a new destination or revisit a favorite place in an unexpected way. We asked Virtuoso travel advisors and industry pros to tell us about the locales that have them packing their bags. They gave us a peek inside their Wanderlists, plus shared the lowdown on where you’ll find more locals than tourists beside you on the beach, where you can see cherry blossoms without the throngs, and how to take in stark desert expanses from the cocktail car of a Victorian-era train. Their secrets and sound advice make for a year’s worth of grand adventure – we’ll see you out there.

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” – Dr. Seuss

As your Travel Advisor, I make sure you don’t miss out on extraordinary experiences that you may not be aware of or cannot get on your own, as they are only available through our exclusive global network of travel partners and suppliers.

I’ll use inside information to arrange behind the scene tours, secure access into exclusive events, have your tours and excursions scheduled at the best times, provide upgrades and amenities when available and more.

My goal is that you return from your vacation saying, “WOW! That was an amazing experience!”

If WOW is what you’re looking for, let’s get started!

Very Best,
