At Unique Journeys we travel consistently, in order to find the best places, locate the top lodging, select the finest guides, and search out singular dining and experiences for clients of our bespoke travel consultancy. We utilize our unquenchable thirst to experience the art, culture, history, food and people of the far corners of this diverse planet in support of that quest.

What began years ago with friends and acquaintances asking for help and advise in planning their travel, after hearing our stories and seeing our photos, grew into a top custom-travel consultancy.

Our boutique custom-travel planning business is oriented toward select and discriminating clients—frankly those with means to search out the best. Our broad and deep travel experience gives us the ability to organize terrific trips based on first-hand knowledge.  The experiences of almost 40 years give us the capacity to render highly relevant and targeted travel advice. For more information, see the 'About Us' section on the link at the top right.

This spring, we travelled to the first time in decades to Copenhagen, a fantastic water-oriented city with amazing contemporary architecture. A short 8 mile trip across the Øresund Bridge, connecting Denmark to Sweden, lies the interesting southwestern city of Malmö. Previous to that we spent Christmas and New Years in the colonial Mexican towns of Puebla and Oaxaca, and last fall finally made it to the Pushkar Camel Fair in the Rajasthan. Last year we also checked out the island of Malta—full of history, and re-visited Paris, Florence and Rome, magical cities in winter, searching for the best new hotels and experiences. We also explored the Emerald Isle via the luxury train Grand Hibernian.

The links to the right contain stories, reminiscences and photographs of places we’ve visited for research and loved. We hope they might inspire your next journeys.
