After graduating from Michigan State University in 1998 and doing a month-long tour of Europe, Sandi realized she had found her passion in travelling. Since then, she has cultivated this passion by exploring the world as much as possible.
Sandi recently lived in Europe for 6 years – three years each in central London and Copenhagen. She has traveled extensively throughout the 50 United States (having visited 45), as well as Europe and the rest of the world. She has been to 6 continents, including 26 countries in Europe. Her favorite experiences usually involve towns and villages off the beaten path, picturesque places and those with ocean views. By virtue of living abroad, she’s had extensive travel experiences throughout Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Austria, the UK, and Mexico.
Sandi is an avid photographer and loves traveling to photograph different landscapes. She enjoys experiencing different cultures worldwide, and will always sample the local culinary delights in each country or region. She has designed her own trips for the past 17 years, including both individual and group trips for friends and family.
