The seed for travel was planted during my college days, when I lived and worked in France and visited 7 countries via Eurail. Now, with more than 30 years experience in travel planning, there are very few destinations that I have not visited or sold, and my passion to share the world with my clients continues. Thanks again to close friendships formed in college, the Hawaiian Islands have been number 1 from day 1, both professionally and personally. When asked “which is my favorite island?” I invariably respond “the last one visited” (although Maui No Ka ‘Oi.) Over the years, my reach in the Pacific has expanded all the way to Australia, and everywhere in between. Not only do I know the best companies that market Hawaii, French Polynesia, Fiji and Down Under, but also, I know their best agents.

My most memorable trip to Australia was hosted by Qantas Airways. It was 14 exhausting but exhilarating days. Along with the iconic city of Sydney and iconic site of Uluru in the Outback, a day on the Great Barrier Reef, and a visit to Daintree Rainforest, among others, we went off the beaten path to the amazing treasures of Kakadu National Park (north of Darwin-the size of New Jersey) and Kangaroo Island (south of Adelaide). The sites, experiences, and people there made this a trip of a lifetime and has been my motivation for finding and planning the most unique vacations Down Under….from Lord of the Ring tours in New Zealand to marlin fishing off Lizard Island, Australia.

I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Donna Niesman responded:
Karen and Tom-If travel agents rated their clients, I don't think 5 star is high enough for you. I am looking forward to planning many more adventures for you. Karen, your fabulous photographs - from food to sunsets to underwater marvels-always make me feel like I'm on the trip with you. Thanks so much.
