I am a lifelong resident of Elkhart, IN and I love where I come from, but ever since I was a child I've dreamed of faraway places and grand adventures. I've just recentlydiscovered my passion for travel and desire to assist people in planning their own grand adventures or luxurious vacations. I have recently graduated from Rejuvia Travel School, and also passed the Travel Agent Proficiency Test. I am more than ready to use my new skills to assist you in planning a trip that you'll be excited to share for a long time after you've returned home.
In 2018, I took my first trip to Japan. My favorite parts of that trip were the Godzilla Hotel, Tokyo Tower, Senjoji Temple, home to the largest paper lantern in all of Tokyo! The Yudanaka Snow Monkey Park and the breathtaking scenery and wild monkeys bathing
in hot springs. They seemed absolutely undisturbed by the presence of people. I enjoyed trying a private open-air bath on the roof of my inn that used water from a natural hot spring nearby. I fed wild deer at the Deer Park and visited Todaiji. The Golden
Pavilion of Kinkakuji and Heian Jingu in Kyoto where several locations were filmed for the movie 'Memoirs of a Geisha.' I paid my respects at the Hiroshima Peace Park/ Atomic Bomb Dome. While I was there I tried Okonomiyaki which is now one of my absolute
favorite dishes that I now make at home. I got to see the floating Toori Gate at Istukushima Shine on Miyajima Island and visit the aquarium showcasing life within the Seto Inland Sea. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and I can't wait until I can visit
When I find a spare moment for myself I am usually curled up with a book at the library or the bookstore. On a nice day, I love walking along nature trails and just observe wildlife and the natural scenic beauty all around. I'm also a bit different in that
I enjoy watching shows about haunted locations and people who engage in paranormal investigations. I went up to a well-known haunted prison in Mansfield, Ohio where the movie 'Shawshank Redemption' was filmed. It was so cool to hear the building when it
was in use as an actual prison, and then how the prison gained fame from the movie as well as the prop from Air Force 1 that adorns the entrance. In the same town, there is a facility that used to run as a general grocer and coffee producer. They are still
a family owned operation and they were actually visited by Mark and Debbie Constantino as well as the Ghost Adventures crew. They never aired the episode based on the amount of activity that they got while investigating. The current owner and his wife now offer
paranormal investigations and daytime haunted history tours that are definitely not to be missed!
Do you dream of sitting beneath cherry blossoms in the spring or watching fireworks during a summer festival? Would you like to participate
in a paranormal investigation, or history tour to learn about how some of these locations became haunted in the first place? Moreover, do you just want to experience more than what small city life has to offer? If so, call me at the Rejuvia Vacation Club in
South Bend to make it happen. I will use my past experiences to treat you and your vacation as my greatest priority.
