My Trip to Greece

June 02, 2020 | Lindsay Ruffeski

It was September 2010, my first time to Europe!  I was on my way to Greece!  It was a FAM Trip (familiarization trip exclusively for travel agents, hosted by suppliers/tour operators/tourist boards to visit & learn about a destination).  I was super excited, but also super nervous at the same time.  This would be my first trip to Europe (alone), and I would be on a plane direct from Toronto for 10 hours!  What would I do with my time??

Having never been to Europe, I was excited to see what it would be like.  I’d learned a lot about Europe, through colleagues, and specialized training courses, but it was finally time to experience it first hand.  What a beautiful country to visit, especially for my first time to Europe.

My itinerary would be taking me to Greece’s capital, Athens, as well as the islands of Mykonos, Santorini, and Crete. Read More >

Lindsay’s Best Days Ever!

January 15, 2020 | Lindsay Ruffeski

Disney World truly is the happiest place on Earth!

Their tagline says it’s the happiest place on Earth, but you don’t really understand what they mean until you visit it for yourself. I’m so in love with Disney World, I wish I could return year after year, as I would never get bored! There is always something new to experience.

Growing up I was lucky to be able to take a vacation every year, and usually that was Disney.  The first time I visited Disney World I was 7 years old.  From that moment, I knew it was going to be my favorite place to visit.

Hawaii… Paradise Found

March 07, 2018 | Lindsay Ruffeski

The fresh, floral air invigorates you. The warm, tranquil waters revitalize you. The breathtaking, natural beauty renews you. Whether it’s your first time to Hawaii, or your tenth time, the six unique islands offer distinct experiences that will entice any traveler. I encourage you to explore the islands and discover Hawaii for yourself.

There’s no place on earth like Hawaii. Home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes and the world’s tallest sea mountain.  Birthplace of modern surfing, the hula and Hawaii Regional Cuisine. Former seat of a royal kingdom and home to the only royal palace on US soil. Hawaii is one of the youngest geological formations in the world and the youngest state of the union. But perhaps Hawaii’s most unique feature is its aloha spirit: the warmth of Hawaii’s people that wonderfully complements the Islands’ perfect temperatures. Read More >
