A quote: “You may Delay, but Time Will Not, and Lost Time is Never Found Again.” – Benjamin Franklin

After university and working in a corporate job in USA, Dan traveled around Latin America and Europe. But it was the a friendly locals, vibrant energy & safe ambiance of Spain and Portugal that captured his heart. This included new amigos, medieval castles, unknown and Michelin-starred restaurants, Roman Empire archeological heritage, Spanish wine caves, Mediterranean islands, olive groves, Madrid’s art & majesty, Seville’s tapas & flamenco guitar, and Lisbon’s Fado, Porto’s old world charm and the dazzling Duero Valley. After running with the bulls in Pamplona (never again) and surviving the Iberian fiestas, Dan imagined that Hemingway should have retired in Spain.

Dan’s amigos include Spanish winemakers, chefs, art historians, artists, fitness trainers and artisans. He has been listed by PBS TV travel show host Rick Steve’s in his Spain travel books. He is a lifelong New Orleans Saints and LSU fan, but prefers soccer for his young Spanish-American son. Dan has assisted the TRAVEL CHANNEL and MTV on location in Spain. An international traveler himself, Dan has enjoyed Machu Pichu, Morocco, Chile, China and Korea along with much of Europe and the USA.

Rachel Harris

Senior Luxury Travel Specialist

A quote: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.” – Mark Twain

Rachel’s worldview combines working hard + enjoying life with family and friends whenever possible. She grew up in a family of “foodies” so traveling for her was often in search of a perfect meal. After she studied abroad in Spain and her host family were great cooks and loved to travel. They showed her the BIG difference between ”tourist trap Spain” vs. the top local places of savvy Spaniards. After working in a law firm she changed gears and entered the world of luxury travel and has never looked back.
