Mr. Europe's not so Europe - Aloha!

Written by

hello everyone from Mr. Europe's neighborhood

Hope you're all well. I am. I'm very busy helping and planning a lot of vacations for you all right now. Mostly Europe, of course, but my full service Travel Agency does it all, as you say here in America, from "soup to nuts", whatever that really means, lol. Kind sof like, Alphabet soup I guess! I like that analogy. Going with it!

While I sepcialize in European creativity for your vacation needs, wants and desires you didn't know existed within the maginifcent of Europe, what you don't know about me, is my mad love for Hawaii. Why you ask? Well, first of all, who doesn't love Hawaii? It is a varied tropical paradise. When I first arrived, fresh off the boat (really it was a plane!) I was fortunate enough to "land" a job for a Hawaiian Travel Company. Part of my job, was inspecting hotels, resorts, condo's (I know, I know, a tough life but someone had to do it and they picked right, ME ME ME) and I fell in love. 

Being from England, I thought, Hawaii, being sooooooooo far away, was far out of my reach, but alas, my dream, really did come true. I remember arriving, the beautiful aroma in the air, I kissed the ground and welled up. I fell in love. I love the people, the aloha spirit, the ambience, and of course, the food. It's "home" to me and fo course, it's the good 'ole USA, boy, are we blessed or what?! 

I travel there annually, still to this day. I like to take a refresher in updating myself on the properties we sell the most, so when you ask, and you do ask, I can say with confidence, "yes, I have been there" and tell you which Island is best for you, which resort also. I love telling people, where to go!!!! In fact, I'm off again this week for another Hawaiian refresher. I will post some pictures later on, so as they say, "watch this space".

I'm attaching a picture of me, in my #1 favorite place to visit in Europe, the South of France, sending you cheers and aloha

Mr. Europe has arrived!

Written by

Jack in car
Welcome to Mr. Europe's neighborhood (spelled US way, not my way!)

Who is Mr. Europe? (Me, Lawrence)

I am the Brit with the Wit! (so I'm told). I am a working Travel Agency Owner, who loves to travel, and share my knowledge with all of you. I am from England originally. Home of the world's best soccer team (we say football!), Manchester United. (I have a very unique story to tell you later about this) I have been in the travel business for over 39 years (but there's no way you can tell this by looking at me!)

I wanted to share with you, some of my personal travel experiences and tips, and some client stories as well. As you get to know me, you'll know I always have a lot say! (I'm no ham)

I'm Mr. Europe to my clients. I'm considered a European travel expert. I love to plan & customize, your intricate or simple European itinerary (if simple is a word when it comes to planning a European vacation) and add experiences to your vacation you never knew possible.

I have a mad obsession with Europe. I travel there at least 2-3 times a year and escort groups, by land, ocean or River. Clients love me and ask me where we're going to next (not sure why).

Oh, by the way, we are a full service travel agency and welcome the opportunity to help you with your travel plans big or small, no matter where they may take you.  There are few of us left, but as they say, the strong will survive and I'm a survivor. (feel like going into song now)

People tell me frequently I look like the Rock and sound like Robin Leach (I say, I wish I looked like the Rock and had Robin's money!) 

Champagne wishes and Caviar Travel baby!

Cheers and aloha (I love Hawaii)
