Mary Lou Dodd
I have been in the travel industry since 1986, first working for American Airlines and now as a travel agent for Hudson Village Travel.
I have been all over Canada, and USA, England, Spain, Portugal, Barbados, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Nevis, Australia and Hawaii.
Graduated from the Institut de Tourisme et de l'hotellerie du Quebec (Tourism and Hotel Institute of Quebec), I have been a travel agent since 1994.
I have visited Canada, USA, Tunisia, Italy, France, Mexico, Caribbean, Central and South America. I have also been on a cruise.
I designed and write the content of this website as well as my own on cruises at Carib Cruises and I am an ex-travel agent of 13 year experience.
My two passions at this stage of my life are: Cruises and Web Design. So I combine the two and enjoy it so much.
My husband and I took our first cruise in 1992 and as of January 2008, I will have been on 22 cruises! We have sailed the Caribbean many times but we have also cruised through Alaska and twice through the Panama Canal(a half and full transit).
We have visited Israel(twice), Egypt(including a cruise on the Nile), Greece, France, Switzerland, Germany, Jordan,Morocco, Hong Kong, Thailand, El Salvador,Alaska(inland),Hawaii and of course Canada and the USA.
I have been 30 years in the travel industry, including KLM and B.A. airlines.
I have widely travelled in North America, U.K., Europe (specialist) and New Zealand - also parts of Asia, South Pacific, Morocco, South America, and Russia. Even after all these years, I have retained enthusiasm and pleasure in the diversity and challenges of travel planning.
Now that you know about us, we're sure you'll agree that between us we have covered a good part of the world and have many years of experience.
We'll keep coming up with new places to explore and will do the research, check it out ourselves or ask someone who has been there and you'll be the one to benefit.
