Marion McDonald has been passionate about travel all of her life. Ever since spending a year of high school in France and earning her BA in International Studies, Marion has been discovering the world a little bit at a time from camping on the Alaskan tundra to cave rafting in New Zealand. She is fluent in French, speaks excellent Italian, and knows a bit of Spanish, which comes in handy since Marion specializes in European travel.

Marion McDonald quoteMarion subscribes to St. Augustine’s philosophy that “the world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.” She really believes that an important part of our life experience is going places and exploring new cultures. Marion plans a good deal of family travel and she feels that by opening children’s eyes to new cultures at an early age, we are making a great investment by affecting the way they look at the world in the future. She firmly believes that travel is something that unifies us.

Marion truly enjoys matching the right client to the right experience, as well as the challenge of putting it all together-whether it is a private day trip to Morocco from Spain or a night in an off-the-beaten-path Buddhist Monastery in Japan. She loves helping create memories that will last a lifetime.
