Travel Agent: Alisa Balk
Travel truly is my hobby. I feel lucky to be able to work in this field every day, making travel dreams come true. Instead of searching the Internet for trips and deals, you get me, a seasoned professional, who will do the work for you. I bring nearly a decade of experience at AAA and a lifetime of experience as a traveler, having lived in Japan twice and explored Europe and Southeast Asia. My favorite places are Italy, the Mediterranean, and the UK. Whether you’re thinking of traveling independently, on a guided tour or a cruise, I will partner with you to create YOUR dream trip. I think of it like making a recipe- we put in and take out ingredients until it’s just right. I look forward to cooking something up with you!
How does a Travel Agent pick one favorite place? I love them all! However, if I had to pick one, I’d say Italy. From the canals of Venice, to the Amalfi Coast, the cathedrals of Rome and the ruins of Pompeii, Italy has something for everyone. The people are friendly, the food is amazing and the history takes you back to another time. Italy is the type of place that you can have busy days taking in all of the sights, lazy days at the coast or you can spend the afternoon with a drink in a piazza. I truly love Italy for its beauty, people and culture. Travel takes you on an amazing journey, and each one has something that makes it a favorite place.
