Nuttin' better than a woman who can read our minds!!!!
Maria is our talented travel consultant. In my book, what sets her apart are her listening skills. She shares our enthusiasm for a new adventure while also hearing and responding to the nuances of our finances. (Now THAT'S a title for another post!)
Above is a photo of Maria, her baby Faith and the rest of her marvelous family. Next, I will give you a few words about Maria's approach.
She doesn't ask the usual questions, tho somehow she discovers when we want to travel. In this case she worked backward and forward around a date and location where we wanted to meet up with Vikki and Inger (VI) in Norway.
And with a glint in her eye -- while helping us find the best route home -- she says, " Think Reykjavik . Iceland Air owns the northern direct routes in and out of Seattle!"
What a gal! Did I mention she saved us money? Well, "save" may be too dramatic a word. What she did was help us find a trip within our budget so we could actually say, "Book it, Maria!"
AND now Maria can return to tending to darlin' Faith...our precious blessing.
