I've had the travel bug all my life and traveled for most of my professional career. A frequent traveler to Europe with experience importing Italian goods, eventually I became a global product manager for a Fortune 100 firm. But life in the Fortune 100 world is for the young and once I was given the opportunity to do something I wanted to do it was a simple decision to share my love of travel and the great places in the world with others.
After 30+ trips to France I'd become something of a Franco-phile. I discovered France was a great golf destination so I started Back Tees Wine Tours to introduce clients to the France that the French hold so dear. It wasn't long before clients began asking me to help them plan trips where they could realize their passions for exploring, wildlife, gastronomy, as well as golf. Their trips have included Africa, Australia/New Zealand, Vietnam, Thailand, the Scandinavian Countries and Italy.
I still exercise my travel itch and have expanded my travel services to include packaged trips to places I've been. My objective is to create trips more inclusive than what is available from other tour operators. If I can't give you a better experience than anyone else I won't do it. Granted it's a bit eclectic but I've found my taste in destinations is just a little ahead of travel trends.
The first trip I'm sponsoring is Portugal 2017. Why Portugal? Portugal is the #1 destination for vacationing Europeans. What makes it so inviting? 800 Years with the same boarders means that most of its history is well preserved. The chapels and cathederals sparkle with gold and silver befitting a great colonial power, and there are just too many castles to count. The EU has been good to Portugal and today the country is peaceful, safe and prospering. Portuguese cuisine is "in" and its wines are getting recognition from the likes of "Wine Spectator". My wife and I went last summer, discovering a country full of surprises with an infectious culture. We have been going to Europe for over 30 years, and Portugal reminded us of how much fun Europe used to be I hope you will click over to the Portugal 2017 and joining us for a great trip where you'll be delighted and surprised by this European secret.
