VALENTINA – OWNER AND TRAVEL ADVISOR
Travel has been my obsession since I was a very little girl growing up in Ljubljana, Slovenia. One of the most picturesque and friendly countries in the world, Slovenia instilled in me a passion for the outdoors, mountains, the sea, amazing food, and the simple life. I lived there until the age of 25, traveling the world and visiting beautiful destinations in Australia, Asia, Africa, America, and of course Europe. I am a military spouse who served alongside my husband for over fifteen wonderfully stressful years! We have two beautiful children who love traveling as much as we do. I lived for three years in Italy, four years in Germany, and in California, Florida, Colorado, and Michigan. I speak fluent English, Slovenian, Serbo-Croatian, French, Italian, and conversational German.
I earned my degree in Hospitality Management while working for the oldest, and most respected, 4-star luxury hotels and conference centers in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I worked for the prestigious Pebble Beach Resort in in picturesque Monterey, California, and received my Master’s degree from the University of Oklahoma in International Relations.
I can say with the utmost confidence I am an expert in luxury travel. I know the authentic locations, the best times to travel, and understand people and cultures. I bring to the table a “real-world” love of luxury travel and I can help you experience all the amazing people, places, and cultures the world has to offer!
As I help luxury travel adventurers get private, unique, authentic, and luxurious experiences, I want to give you the experience of a lifetime. I have an eye for quality and believe any-and-all travel should excite and ignite the mind, body, and soul. Whether it is independent, family, business, honeymoon, or a destination wedding let me be your first-choice luxury travel advisor. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for sport, adventure, spa resort, beach, relaxation, seclusion, romance, or all-of-the-above; I can get you there and make it memorable. I want you to really experience, and love, life through each travel experience – just as much as I do.
MY MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCES
I was born to travel the world, and I have! I have skied the French, Italian, Austrian, German, and Slovene Alps. I have hiked Cinque Terre and Yosemite, snorkeled in the Seychelles and Hawaii, biked Barcelona, and adventured across Australia. I have relaxed on Greek, Croatian, Italian, French, Spanish, Israeli, Australian, Asian, and African beaches. I have shopped back alleys of Trieste, Paris, Rome, Milan, Prague, Tel Aviv, and Munich. I planned a fairy tale wedding on a secluded island in the middle of an alpine lake in Slovenia, and an amazing honeymoon to Ireland and Hawaii.
