Charlene Underhill


Biography

Who is Charlene:
I started in the travel business in January of 1970.  Most of my years have been spent working in retail travel agencies, both as a travel counsellor and various management positions.  But the actual travel counselling is my true passion.  I love the interaction with my clients and being able to concentrate on this aspect.  Over the years, I have had the opportunity to travel to many countries of the World and enjoy discovering the history, culture and people.  I have also taken over 60 cruises to date with a wide variety of cruise lines and types of sailings, from main stream cruise lines to river cruising and, for obvious reasons, while I handle all types of travel arrangements I have chosen to make this one area in which to specialize.

What are Charlene’s TOP 5 travel experiences:

  • Hot air ballooning at sunrise over the spectacular landscape of Cappadocia
  • Exploring with a private guide some of the lesser know tombs in the Valley of the Kings
  •  Viewing lions, elephants, giraffes, hippos and much more wildlife in Kruger National Park
  •  Flight-seeing from Queenstown to Milford Sound in New Zealand
  •  Standing on the edge of the Northern-most point of Europe, North Cape, Norway, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Arctic Ocean

What is Charlene’s closing comment?
“The World is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine

Ireland Speaks to Me Like No Other Place on Earth

My maternal Grandma, Hannah Muirhead, emigrated to Canada from County Antrim, Ireland (now part of Northern Ireland) back in the late 1800’s.  Two of her brothers and a sister had sailed to Canada a few years earlier.  Sadly, her sister died of black fever on the crossing and was buried at sea, but her brothers arrived safely and made their way west to homestead at the Derry Corner, near Douglas, Manitoba. They then invited Hannah to come and join them. I can’t imagine leaving my family and everything that was familiar to me and sailing across the Atlantic to an unknown place, all at the age of 19. The courage to do that seems unimaginable.  Read More >

Now That’s How to Go “Postal”, In the Very Best Way!

Every now and again I read something that makes me say “H’uh? Really? Wow!”, and this story was one of those.

10 Reasons Why You Still Need a Travel Agent Consultant

 

In the age of online booking sites, using a travel consultant may feel like going the way of the dinosaur.  But, consultants are more useful than simply selling airline tickets, trips to Disney World and cruises. Many consultants provide services or have knowledge that you just can’t get online – and sometimes, especially in times of crisis, working with a real live person is just plain superior. Read More >
