Travel Agent: Lori Schneider
I have always had a love for traveling. I love that I am able to work with my clients to create their dream vacations – planning every detail from the day they contact me until they have returned home from their trip. I try to make sure that the trips are above and beyond the client’s expectations. I have been with AAA Washington for over 16 years and I have been fortunate enough to travel to several countries. I plan to keep traveling to new places, so I can gain more firsthand experience to pass along to my clients.
My most recent trip to the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland, Australia has been my favorite so far. The Whitsunday Islands are an all-round unique and wonderful destination. There are 74 tropical Islands that make up the Whitsundays.The people are lovely and kind, the kangaroos and wallabies are everywhere, and the beauty is amazing. The islands have something for everyone – from White Haven Beach, where you can spend the day hiking, sun bathing and swimming to Hamilton Island, which is a golf cart-only island with palm trees that are resting places to the abundant and very smart cockatoos. Hamilton Island is a great location to depart for the Great Barrier Reef, where I did a dive in the most picturesque underwater location in the world. I also spent some time on Daydream Island, where I was able to hand-feed stingrays at a Living Reef. This was truly a trip of a lifetime!
