Lou’s passion for travel was instilled at an early age while visiting Europe and other destinations with her family. Lou vividly recalls sitting on the ancient steps of Pompeii, gazing in awe at Michelangelo’s David for the first time, cruising through the Inside Passage and witnessing the glory of the Alaskan wilderness, climbing by mule up the mountain to Santorini and much more. These childhood memories sparked Lou’s continuing desire to explore other lands and cultures. During college, she spent a semester studying in Paris and traveling throughout France. After graduation, Lou lived in Japan for 4 years where she traveled extensively throughout Asia including Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. Lou’s enthusiasm for travel has now extended to her family who has visited many destinations in Europe, the Caribbean and Africa. Lou has independently traveled to Bali, Botswana, Egypt, South Africa, Tanzania, India, Vietnam and Cambodia and most recently to Peru.
