Hello—My name is Ann Schofield Feldman …I have been involved in the Travel Industry for over 25 years, where I started out working for the airlines, before becoming a Travel Consultant. Traveling to warm climates is something I always look forward to. Another destination I am especially fond of, is Europe. With the Mediterranean in particular. Every summer my family and I enjoy traveling to Mexico as well as other Caribbean destinations. One of the benefits of travelling that I find particularly fascinating is learning about- and experiencing various cultures. It is a privilege to work with clients and make their travel dreams come true. I value the unique travel experiences that the industry has afforded me, and always look forward to future adventures. Just cannot wait to make Your dreams come true!

“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey (Pat Conroy).” Travel is truly a gift, and our travel memories remain with us FOREVER! One of the most wonderful gifts I received from my late husband, Bill was his love for travel and adventure. I am so grateful to have made those memories. Together, and with our children, we traveled often: throughout the United States from east coast to west coast, exploring National Parks, cruising and adventuring in Mexico, Alaska, Costa Rica and the Caribbean, and witnessing the pure beauty of Hawaii.

I now understand how important it is to continue traveling and making memories. Recently I journeyed to India and Italy, both destinations were healing and transformative. Traveling with family and friends connects to each other, and to the cultures and world around us. Traveling helps us develop courage and confidence.

I am happy and excited to announce that I am rejoining Jet Set Travels of Southampton as a Travel Consultant with 15 years of previous experience. Life is precious, and there are so many places to see and so much to learn in this world. I hope that I can assist you in planning a vacation that will stay in your mind forever! Namaste!

Certified Travel Consultant

My name is Marianne Crawford and I came into the Travel Agent business over 12 years ago while I was coaching high school and college cheerleaders and needed to take a group of them to a National Cheer Competition in Florida. I loved the idea of planning an itinerary for the time spent in Florida with so much to do, especially seeing the end result of all the memories I helped make for these young adults. Since then have I have become a Certified Travel Consultant and a Disney Agent Specialist, having attended a seminar held in Disney World and also a Group Coordinator for Contest of Champions National Cheer Competitions and have helped send many groups of cheerleaders to the National Cheer Competitions in Orlando, Florida and gave them a customized itinerary to help make the most of their particular stay. My love for Disney came when I had the privilage to march with my High School Drill team down Main Street USA shortly after Disney World’s Magic Kingdom opened and haven’t stopped visiting Disney World since. I have been to Disney World myself more than 30 times over the years and have been to Disneyland California at least 10 times and also have sailed with Disney on their cruise ships and loved and enjoyed each Magical Adventure.

I am also well versed in the cruising industry having sailed at least once a year over the past 14 years on several different cruise lines and ships and would loved to share my experience with you to help you get the most out of your cruising experience whether it would be your 1st or your 21st cruise. I am also a Business Travel Group Specialist and have worked with many companies in the area handling all their Business Travel needs including Meeting Agendas and Business Dinners. I would love to help plan your next vacation or business travel, making sure each and every detail is geared towards you vacation dreams and business goals.

Certified Travel Consultant

My interest in travel began as a child. I traveled to Europe a great deal as my parents were immigrants and we would go and visit our relatives. The travel was a little more work than fun, but I would spend time dreaming that when I got older I would travel and be able to truly enjoy the sights and sounds of foreign lands. Today, I have traveled to numerous countries, many islands (as these are some of our favorite vacations), and continue to enjoy cruising through Europe and the Caribbean.

I have a vision of what my perfect vacation is, and I always try to find that same vision for my customers. Let’s face it, you get two maybe three weeks a year to get away from the grind of work, and the never ending to do list. My goal is to listen to your thoughts and see if I can make your trip dreams come through with your perfect vacation.

Cruising is one of my favourite ways to see the world. I have cruised the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Panama Canal, Hawaiian Islands, Galapagos Islands and the headwaters of the Amazon. River cruising is the perfect way of seeing the heart of countries. I have sailed on the Rhine as well as the Danube so far. The last group tour we hosted went to Peru with the highlight being Machu Picchu.

Travel became my passion in 1977, on my honeymoon, where I discovered how much I enjoyed learning about the world. I find the key to fulfilling my client’s vision is to put focus in choosing the right destination. Whether you see yourself sitting on a remote beach, strolling cobblestone streets, diving the Great Barrier Reef or hot air ballooning over the Serengeti, I strive to ensure my clients engage in bespoke experiences which turn into memories lasting a lifetime. My focus is on honeymoons (who doesn’t love to celebrate love) and custom itineraries around the globe. From initial planning to the day you return home, every detail will be executed for a seamless and worry-free trip. There is a magical world waiting to be discovered. It would be my pleasure to help reveal it with you.

Growing up, we didn’t go to summer camp, we travelled—whether it was driving across country and seeing the great plains transition into the rocky mountains, or heading to Europe for 6 weeks-hitting every country, we bonded as a family, learned more than we could from a book, and created memories that will last a lifetime.

My priority is to create an experience for my clients that mirror my own values and experiences -Creating memories of a lifetime!

I believe that travel, if properly planned and executed, can provide you with fulfillment that lasts long beyond the trip itself. Along with carrying memories of the time you had, you can return with lingering feelings of relaxation, renewal, inspiration and energy.

Connecting with people from other countries is the one of the best parts of travel. We all love museums, fabulous restaurants and tours, grand hotels, etc. but the most memorable travel experiences are the people we meet along our journey-whether it is the shopkeeper in Kinsale, the boat captain in Anguilla that serves a mean rum punch, or the East Berliner who smuggled 35 people across the border, they all enrich our lives and meeting them is the best gift ever.

I want my clients to enjoy new experiences, and to develop a human connection during their travels - and enjoy the jouney!

With thirty one years in the travel business and five continents visited, I have acquired a level of knowledge to provide my clients with everything they need for a memorable vacation. I do everything in my power – for every client – to ensure their dream vacation is as “dreamy” as they’d hoped.

There’s nothing more rewarding than speaking with a traveler who has just returned from a trip, and being told “It was wonderful!” Finding the perfect cruise, or putting together just the right elements of an independent itinerary… that’s what makes my job so rewarding.

I specialize in luxury cruises – luxury travel of all kinds, really – and I love what I do. Not long ago a client booked a Seabourn cruise, and just happened to mention he’d just gotten engaged. “This is our pre-honeymoon!” he told me. Well, I couldn’t let that pass unnoticed. I called Seabourn and arranged for my client and his fiancé to have dinner with the Captain. They were thrilled! … and I was thrilled for them.

Travel has taught me so much, and has expanded my horizons in an amazing way. I still remember, on my first trip to China in 1983, a young man I met while visiting Nanjing. Back then, American tourists in China were still fairly rare, and the Chinese people were not used to seeing us. You could feel them watching you, they would follow you shyly, observing and listening. But one bold young man stepped up and asked if he could practice his near-perfect English with us. He apologized over and over, even though his English was almost as good as mine! I asked him how he had learned the language so well. “From Radio Free Europe”, he said.

He accompanied us for several hours that afternoon, and it was a cross-cultural experience I’ll never forget. That is exactly the kind of experience I love creating for my clients.

I look forward to doing all that and more for you!

I love travel. I’ve been addicted since my first trip to Paris at the age of 16. It’s an amazing world, and my intent is to see as much as I can in my lifetime. Mostly it’s about the people; we’ve made so many friends all over the world, and each one has truly enriched our lives.

I love making my clients happy… It’s all about creating an experience that they will look back on as the trip of a lifetime. Even if I plan 5 trips a year for them, I want each one to be the best it can be.

A vacation is a huge investment of time, money and energy, in my mind it should be tailored specifically to a client’s interests and passions and really reflect who they are. To do that effectively it’s necessary to really get to know my clients and not just cut and paste options out of Booking.com.

I spend an inordinate amount of time planning a trip, obsessing over the perfect hotel in the perfect town, the smoothest logistics, the best restaurants, the most interesting tours with the nicest guides. But it’s so rewarding to create a complicated itinerary and then have my client say “you nailed it!” Nothing makes me happier than getting photos from the road, saying “this was great” “look how happy we are” and “thank you”!

As a result many of my clients have become my friends, and they come back to me time and time again for my insight and guidance. It’s win/win!

My career in travel spans from starting as a "stewardess" in 1972 who morphed into "flight attendant" in 1974 and then into agency sales for that same major airline. In 1985 I accepted a position as Director of Company Meetings and Conventions for a large regional Travel Management Company. Through the years I changed positions within the company to the ranks of VP National Accounts. In December of 2007 I opened my own agency LXR Travel an affiliate of Travel Experts a Virtuoso Agency with an operating foundation of spoiling travelers so they can have the best travel experience possible in today's hectic world.

Today, I employ over 22 and we continue to grow from traveler referral. We would love to spoil you too so you can realize for yourself what a ferocious traveler advocate affiliated with the most prestigious Virtuoso group can do for you.

Our business manages corporate travel for our clients to satisfy their risk management/duty of care, data capture and cost savings. Our leisure division advises and suggests itineraries that not only surpass what you could imagine on your own but we enable those dreams to become realities for a real "return on life".

Note: With over 41 years in the travel industry, 15 of which was with a major airline, I have visited almost every continent on Earth. The countries and cities I have visited numbers in the hundreds. It would be too much to populate the map below with all the places I have visited. I have shared a few favorites - BUT - I still have more to explore and can't wait for my next trip!

Traveling the world is a passion for both myself and my husband. We find interesting people and places everywhere.

However, I know that everyone has their own desires in vacation or travel. Therefore, it is important to talk and find out exactly how exotic or romantic or relaxing a trip the client would like to take.

Living in South Florida gives me an advantage to be able to visit the cruise ships as they arrive into our ports either new or refurbished. And they just keep getting bigger and better.

So my bags are always packed and my passport is always up to date! How about you?

Highlights will include following the footsteps of Buddha and a stay at an ashram for yoga. I plan to capture the expedition in photo and short video in order to create a documentary upon returning. To participate, contact me for details.

Travel has been my life and is my passion! I have spent close to 25 years in the travel industry and as a result I am often asked, “What is your favorite place?” I find it difficult to name only one. My travels have taken me to so many wonderful and different destinations, from cruising on some of the best cruise lines on the high seas to experiencing fine dining in the best restaurants around the world. While enjoying these experiences for myself, my clients are never far from my thoughts as I’m constantly evaluating these experiences and thinking of ways to tailor them to create memories of a lifetime. Over the years, I have been afforded the opportunity to form relationships with many industry representatives which in turn provides me with even more opportunities to visit incredible destinations, and to extend additional amenities to my clients during their travels. This has only helped to increase my knowledge of the best destinations in the world! My experience in the travel industry has taught me that developing meaningful relationships with my clients is paramount to creating their experiences of a lifetime because it allows me to provide personalized service where no detail is overlooked.

Though a UK and Europe specialist, I am very comfortable - and enthusiastic about - many other places around the globe from Africa to Bora Bora. Family travel, especially multi-generational, and small special interest groups are areas of extensive experience and pleasure for me. London and England are my passion, of course, but I adore Paris, Florence, Africa and French Polynesia. Closer to home New York, Boston and Chicago are favorite cities. Most winters will find me in the Caribbean - often on a small ship meandering around the islands, soaking up the Blue Water vistas.

No matter where the destination, the most important thing is to work closely with clients to craft a travel experience that meets their vision as closely as possible.

The two big passions in my life are my family and helping others. I wanted to help others to enjoy those magical moments that only occur when you're spending time away from your day-to-day life. When you're exploring new destinations and experiencing different cultures and food together, the memories you create become interwoven into your family story.

Choosing the perfect destination for your traveling style, comparing accommodations and finding excursions that will appeal to different generations requires a lot of time and research. And it can be a daunting task, especially if you're working full time or have your hands full raising a family. So don't fret. Instead let me do all of the legwork and research.

When Zuzana eventually takes her “trip of a lifetime”, she will start with a flight to Peru to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. From there, she’ll visit Chile and Argentina, mostly to visit the wineries and enjoy the food. After that, she’ll be off to the French wine regions, and finish off in Scotland, hiking the highlands and visiting Scotch distilleries with a tour based on her favourite “Outlander” book by Diana Gabaldon.

This would be a vast improvement over what she describes as her craziest trip to date. When living in England, she and a bunch of her friends decided within ten minutes to drive to Portsmouth to enjoy the sea and the beach. Not only did the trip ended up taking six hours each way, they arrived at night, had to sleep in the car (one in the trunk), and only had about two hours on the beach before they had to head back home!

In her youth, Zuzana won medals for pentathlon events which included long distance running, combined with first aid, shooting and other physical tests. And in one of life’s strange turns, while she met her husband in England, she has a photo of the two of them together back in their native Slovakia at the age of around 7 or 8, though neither has recollection of having met as children!
