Bonjour, Aloha, Welcome!  I am Jody. 

The travel bug bit me in my teens when I had a homestay in Bourges, France.  Ever since, France has stayed with me- I am a certified Francophile and  Francophone.  I have lived and travelled throughout Europe, speak and continue to learn several languages, and love to share my finds.... I would love to plan a trip for you!


Photography and flying are other loves of mine- I am always searching for the best viewpoint, the unusual angle and different take.  I understand how the technical and the creative work hand in hand to create works of art, just as attention to detail, planning and pace can make or break a vacation. 


The coast of Northern California a few minutes south of San Francisco is now my home base,  where I shoot whenever I can, drop in on wineries, stay involved in the art scene, and take excursions to wine country and the rugged coast of Carmel often.   I know it well and would love to share it with you.


I can’t wait to work with you! And as they say in the flying world, "Blue Skies and Tailwinds"!

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves.  We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate.  We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignoracnce and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed.  And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again-- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.
