Debie Parker, Travel Advisor

Being a military dependent I grew up with travel, picnics on the Rhine and exploring castles, cathedrals and ruins. Upon growing up and settling down what a shock to discover the travels of my youth that I took for granted were the exception not the norm! In 1998, after raising a family, my first love – travel – became a second career.

For me, travel is captured in my favorite quote: “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away.”


TurkeyWalking in ancient footsteps along the Appian Way; marveling at the hands that built architectural masterpieces; savoring the smell of Tasmania’s eucalyptus forest and Istanbul’s spice markets; standing awestruck at the vast expanse of the Milky Way and the Southern Hemisphere from Ayers Rock; being startled by the sudden appearance of a flock of Scarlet Macaws; or enjoying the sand between my toes as I struggle to memorize every achingly beautiful shade of blue in the Caribbean Sea.

Paris FranceThe world is a big beautiful place with more experiences than we can cram into a single lifetime, it is time to get out there and travel! I’ve visited 30 countries with my favorites being France, Italy, Ireland and Costa Rica.

“When working with clients, it is important to listen. Every trip is a dream trip for someone. If I can use my experience and knowledge to make their trip not only enjoyable but memorable, it is a job well done. My strengths include honeymoons, destination weddings, river cruises, family vacations, guided and independent European travel.”

According to Debie, “It’s a small resort – only 234 guest rooms and suites – so you are just steps from the beach regardless of room type. Personally, I prefer the garden view or the partial ocean view because they are more private, lushly tropical and cooler.”
