Always seeking to be a better guide, I took an epic journey to Europe this summer. In four weeks, my wife and I visited four countries: England, Scotland, Bavaria, and Austria. More remarkable than the itinerary was that this was my first trip abroad.

We went not only for pleasure, but to experience how folks conduct tourism over there. Sure, we did a few requisite touristy-type activities, but we also went forth on our own, planning days around our individualized research. Fortunately, we knew someone in both England and Munich.

I’m the guy who welcomes visitors as if they’re long-lost cousins, the explorer who’s read a library’s worth of books, pored over drawers full of maps, waded all the creeks, driven every back road, stopped at each scenic overlook, and sampled the best chicken-fried steaks. With me, my clients find their time here is more efficient, less expensive, and quicker enjoyed.
