Judy Matthiessen-Kennewick,WA

Western Europe Custom Vacation Specialist

I was bit with the travel bug at a young age.  My father was from Denmark and my mother from Scotland, so I spent many years as a child living in Scotland and Denmark until my family moved to Washington State. Growing up in Europe, travelling at a young age, I began to appreciate the many different cultures.  As an adult I lived with my husband for many years in Germany.  Of course we travelled whenever we could. My personal travel experiences continue to grow. I have extended family in Scotland so I visit regularly and take advantage of opportunities to constantly broaden my travel horizons.

I enjoy the travel business because I appreciate what the world has to offer;  fulfilling other peoples' unique travel dreams is my passion.
