Phone: 239 494 5226

I’m Trish and I’m passionate about helping people travel to Europe!

I’m a Navy brat & I’ve traveled my whole life, but my love affair with Europe started when my friend’s Fathers began to be stationed there. When my Dad came up for re-enlistment, I would beg and plead every time for him to take a posting in Europe!

Although my Father never transferred us to Europe, or maybe because if it, as an adult I travel to Europe every chance I get. ?) I love the culture, the art, the architecture the food and the people. My long term goal would be to live there for 3 to 5 years once my husband and I become Empty Nesters! (A girl’s gotta dream, right) ;-)

I’ve been in the travel business since 1993, and I’ve earned several industry certifications and awards including my Master Cruise Counselor, Certified Travel Counselor as well as multiple European Destination Specialty certificates.

In 2011 I was recognized by Avalon Waterways as their number 1 Selling River Cruise Specialists for the year while sailing on their Paris to Normandy Landing Beaches cruise! What an honor that was.

I’ve sailed on 3 river cruises as of this writing & have made 5 trips to Europe within just the last 3 years.

I would be thrilled to help you develop your own passion for European Travel. Please call me!

Phone: (706)322-2323

Cecilia became intrigued by the travel industry while growing up in Chicago.

“I was always fascinated by maps and about traveling around the world,” she said.

So it was an easy thing for her to pick a career path. She got a degree in the travel and airline industry with a minor in computer science from the Northwestern Business College in Chicago.

Three weeks after graduation, Cecilia got a job with Iberia Airlines of Spain, where she worked for five years. Iberia Airlines moved its operations to Miami, and Cecelia decided not to move with the company. She worked for a small travel agency until she got married and moved to Columbus.

Cecilia continued to work in the travel industry, first at the now-defunct Travel World in Columbus and Carlson-Wagonlit in Fort Benning.

Almost 14 years ago, she found her way to Travels By Donna, where you’ll find her happily working with all kinds of people, sending them all over the world.

She loves working in the industry, being able to help people with their travel plans. Cecilia also loves traveling herself so she can tell clients the best places to visit.

And don’t forget, Cecilia speaks Spanish, so if you need some help, she’s the one to call.

As a Sagittarius, the love for travel is in my blood. Ever since I was little, I traveled all over. Years ago we took the ENTIRE family and cruised Alaska. I was hooked. Around that time I had been traveling so much and loved the planning, so I decided to become a travel agent. I decided to make it my goal to learn all about the cruise lines and the destinations. From my view, the best way to learn all about them was experience them.

Well financially, that wasn’t going to happen fast, so I settled for my plan of one ship in each class, starting with Royal Caribbean. And within 2 years, I’ve accomplished it!!! (With the exception of the Quantum Class, at the time of this writing, but it’s on the bucket list!) Now certified as a cruise expert by Royal Caribbean, NCL, Disney Vacations, and Carnival Cruise Lines. Having traveled all over the Caribbean, the Southern Caribbean is my favorite place to go and I would love to tell you all about it.

Along with all of that, comes my love for people, groups, celebrations and living often by the theory of “the more the merrier!” This is probably the reason I have found group travel to be such a blast! If you want to put together a group, family reunion, school reunion, or such, I would be more than happy to help plan your event. BONUS: Once upon a time, I owned a Weddings and Event Planning retail shop in South Florida. With this past experience, you can feel warm and fuzzy that I will do everything possible to make your destination wedding exactly as you wish!

Having started as a Travel Agent in March 2013, I was by then already bitten by the Travel Bug, and helping people meet their goals was not new to me.

I was a Registered Nurse for many years, having retired from the Cardiology department at Kingston General Hospital in 2011. For an 8 year period I was a Real Estate Broker in the Brockville area.

I have been a generalist in the field, researching and then booking many different vacation products for my clients, but my niche is Cruises (including European River Cruises), all-inclusive vacations in the warmer climates, and guided Land Tours.

My Home-based agency is my own business, but is hooked up with a host agency, The Travel Agent Next Door, which provides me with support, training, accounting, marketing tools, and suppliers who provide a multitude of vacation products for my valued clients.

I have taken specialty courses in River Cruises (including the various river cruise lines), Manulife Travel Insurance, Orlando, Myrtle Beach, and others, and have travelled to a good many countries, as well as having enjoyed a number of cruises, both river and ocean.

My mission is to give my clients exceptional and personalized service in a well-informed and fair manner, and with complete integrity, in our finding their bucket list travel itineraries.

Wendy grew up in Saint John and now calls Quispamsis, NB, home. Travelling with her parents at a young age instilled the love of travel in her and she hasn't looked back. In the last 15 years she has travelled to various places in Canada and the U.S., to Caribbean destinations such as Cuba, Antigua, Jamaica and St. Lucia, and to Ireland, Italy, France and Spain. She is looking forward to experiencing more of Italy this year before heading to the Greek Islands and Croatia, and to crossing off a bucket list destination, Thailand, in November. Now that her two boys are adults, she has the freedom and flexibility to enjoy all things related to travel.

When not travelling, Wendy may be found hiking in the woods of New Brunswick, paddling on the rivers in her kayak, or simply enjoying the many wonderful beaches and seaside vistas in her own backyard with her husband.

She recently earned her 200 hour yoga teacher certification and is looking forward to hosting trips in the future focused on wellness, yoga and hiking.

Ultimately, Wendy's goal is to assist her clients in planning their perfect vacations so they may become experienced storytellers in their own right.

Kathy, originally from Newfoundland, and Stan, originally from Ontario, both moved to PEI in 2015 to escape the busyness of life and enjoy the slower pace of the island.

They both have a passion for travel and experiencing different destinations, adventures, food and cultures while connecting with the local community along the way.

Their travels have taken them to several Caribbean destinations, across Canada and to the US, where they have had the opportunity to give back to the local community by visiting local schools, engaging with the children, and providing school and humanitarian items. They have also sponsored children in the Dominican Republic by providing the required items to go to school, as well as others in the Philippines, Haiti, Zimbabwe, and Cambodia.

Not just internationally, Kathy and Stan are also connected in their local community through Operation Backpack PEI, which helps provide back-to-school supplies to local children in the community, logistics co-ordinators for Operation Christmas Child-Shoebox campaign, as well as various other areas through their local church. When they are not engaged in helping in the community, you’ll either find them tending to their gardens or enjoying the company of family and friends.

As Trusted Travel Advisors, their ultimate goal is to provide exceptional service to their clients by helping turn their dream destinations into reality, whether it be their first trip or one of many!

About Frances

Growing up in Alberta, Frances always loved travelling and exploring the great outdoors. Her passion turned into a career after she followed her mother’s wise advice: “Do what you love!”

She took her first solo trip by bus from Edmonton to Calgary at seven years old to visit family friends and she’s never looked back. Since she’s travelled in the arctic by bush plane, snorkeled on the Great Barrier Reef, taken a train to mountain villages in Switzerland, relaxed on the beaches of the Caribbean, slept in an underground hotel in the opal-mining town of Coober Pedy, remembered Canada’s fallen in the battlefields of Europe, wandered the hip streets of Nuuk, Greenland, and was guided through the Tower of London by a Yeoman Warder.

The list of places on Frances’ travel bucket list – from eco-tourism destinations to urban hotspots – is too numerous to mention here, but will always include great food, unique experiences, and the chance to create unforgettable memories with family and friends.

As a travel agent, Frances wants to help you knock off destinations on your travel bucket list, take that family journey you’ve never thought possible, find that perfect spot to just get away from it all, or create that unforgettable memory that will last a lifetime.

She brings with her an Honours Bachelor of Outdoor Recreation, Parks, and Tourism, nearly 20 years of experience in the travel product development industry, and an unmatched enthusiasm for helping you meet your travel goals. Like with the entire team at Stewart Travel Group, with Frances you’ll get the very best in customer service and an unparalleled attention to detail: let her take care of making your travel arrangements so that you can take care of what that trip should be all about.

About Kelvin

Kelvin was born in Toronto Ontario and spent the first decade of his life growing up there in North York. Kelvin’s parents are both Maritimers, his father born in New Brunswick and his mother from Prince Edward Island. His parents maintained a connection to the Maritimes: Kelvin grew up spending his summers at their cottage in PEI. Kelvin learned at a very early age just how much he enjoyed travel and vacationing, especially when it included flying. Kelvin loves air travel. Having said that, being an avid motorcyclist, he loves a good riding vacation as well. He will admit though that the tranquility of travelling by train will take you through places and show you scenery that few people have had the thrill of experiencing simply because they chose to travel by train. However, in Kelvins own words, “It doesn’t matter how you travel, just travel.”

Kelvin’s travels have taken him across Canada missing only Nunavut and Newfoundland and Labrador. He has also been to a number of States in the U.S.A. and has found his way to France, Belgium, Great Britain, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Jamaica. Kelvin appreciates the ease of the “all inclusive vacation” but the awe of visiting the “old world” of Europe has him wanting to go back time and time again.

Kelvin has a love for “unique.” He is not only excited about helping you with all your travel and vacation needs and desires, he is equally excited about introducing some unique travel and vacation ideas for you to discover yourself or on a hosted trip. So whether it’s a business trip, a vacation, or your bucket list vacation, Kelvin is excited to be here for you as your Trusted Travel Advisor.

    Tara originates from Guysborough County Nova Scotia. During her adolescence her family uprooted and moved to the Dartmouth, NS.

    Tara's passion for travel started when she was a very young child. When passing the Halifax International Airport on trips to the city from Guysborough, she would ask her parents to stop and take a drive around; she loved the hustle bustle and emotional feeling the airport gave her.

    Tara studied Travel and Tourism at Holland College, where she graduated with Honors in 1992. She then started her career working at Travel CUTS on both Dalhousie and St. Mary's University campuses where she quickly was promoted from Agent to Manager.

    Tara left her dream job to follow her husband’s career move to Ontario. There she stayed home raising her two daughters, Marle and Maggie, while helping her husband run the family business.

    During her hiatus from working in the industry Tara continued her passion for travel and travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, USA, Europe, cruising and – more recently – starting to participate in organized cycling holidays around the globe, lately in Italy, France, Portugal, and Croatia.

    In February 2018, Tara decided to get back to doing what she loves as her family demands lessened and her passion for travel continued to flourish. She received her Certification through The Travel Agent Next Door and has not looked back since.

    Jessica, born in Halifax (don’t hold that against her!), has lived most of her life in Emyvale, Prince Edward Island. From a young age, she started travelling with the Confederation Centre Youth Chorus, singing throughout North America and Europe. Pretty soon she was bitten by the travel bug. She obtained her Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Prince Edward Island, and then she headed off to Dublin, Ireland to pursue a Masters of Biodiversity and Conservation from Trinity College, University of Dublin. Throughout this program, Jessica travelled to Asia, Africa and eventually ended up in Panama. When her 3 month volunteer internship ended, she was asked to stay to manage a Primate Rehabilitation and Research Centre.

    All of these experiences fueled the fire in Jessica to combine her two passions: travel and conservation. Since her time in Central America, Jessica has been working at Parks Canada (when she’s not travelling) as a Compliance Lead, where she helps educate visitors on the rules and regulations of PEI National Park.

    Jessica understands there are many different types of travellers. She has done it all from backpacking across Europe to staying in a 5 star resort in Thailand and from living in the jungles of Costa Rica to exploring Paris and Barcelona with a large tour group. Her biggest goal is to help you design the trip of your dreams, by creating new experiences and exploring all that Stewart Travel Group can offer.

    "I do what I love and have a passion for every day".

    I began my career in travel in 1981 coordinating both domestic and international corporate travel for various world-wide companies. When I started a family I decided to further pursue my passion by switching to the leisure end of the industry. My first trip was on my honeymoon to Nassau in 1977 and that is what motivated me to help as many people as possible see this beautiful world with the ones they love. With 35 years of experience and dozens of certifications, along with ongoing destination training, I am dedicated to helping others find the vacation of their dreams that is truly customized to you, whether you are traveling as a couple, family, or group of friends. I genuinely enjoy getting to know my clients and love the suspense of not knowing which resort or destination will win in the end as I further qualify each potential client for their destination wedding, honeymoon, or family vacation. Want to bolt from the cold, relax in the sun and sand, planning a Destination Wedding? I can help you! I have helped hundreds of clients live and love the Caribbean, Mexico and the world.In between planning trips, I am busy with my two children and 4 grandchildren bouncing around from gymnastic, to soccer etc. I would love to help you plan and talk you through some travel options.

    Except for the stream from which they got their drinking water, the first body of water Manya ever saw was the Mediterranean Sea, as her family left war-torn Algeria to join her father in France. It was the first time out of her country of birth, and the first time she’d ever seen anything as large as the ship they travelled on.

    Since then, she’s visited much of the world, from the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon to the splendor of the Serengeti. Along the way she’s witnessed snow in Phoenix, a massive thunderstorm in New Orleans (the likes of which she’d never seen before or since), and floods in Venice in the late 80’s. Once, while walking in the pouring rain in Grenada Spain, she bumped into her nextdoor neighbour – and she had no idea they were travelling in the same country!

    Manya loves reading, mostly novels from French or Canadian authors, and it’s her favourite way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The list of people she would have most loved to meet include Dr. Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Josephine Baker. Her childhood dream career was to be a flight attendant, and now her retirement goal is to spend three months a year on the French Riviera!
