We are all women that love to travel. Maybe we haven't travelled before and we're seeking ideas. Maybe we've travelled a lot, but now want to try something a bit different with a small group. Maybe we have been solo travellers, but we're tired of going alone and are looking for company.

Whatever the reason, I'm glad you've joined our group. My goal is to share these specialty experiences around the globe, that guarantee you a fantastic trip!


Culinary trip to France and Sweden

Julia Child and Simca Inspired French Culinary Trip

Surrounded by mountains, the sea, olive groves, and rows of cypress, we'll stay seven nights at the once home of Simone Beck, next-door to Julia's former home. This is where Mastering The Art Of French Cooking was written.

Excursions for our small group of no more than fourteen are unique. They're structured yet organic, with wiggle room to adjust our interests and menus according to the season.


Our culinary focus is on traditional and regional dishes of the area and France itself, as well as Julia and Simca's cookbooks, of course! Sightseeing will also be enjoyed as we cook with a Michelin chef and visit some of the highlights of the Côte d'Azur. 

Evenings will be spent in the kitchen with cooking classes and delicious dinners. Julia and Simca will be our muses!

Midsummer in Sweden

Immerse yourself in the summer traditions of Swedish life, which include nature and the out-of-doors, Swedish massage, rest, dips in the sea, seasonal food, and celebrations. With no more than ten guests, we enjoy discovering southern Sweden in a relaxed,

Swedish way. 

Communing with nature is ingrained in Swedish culture. They have a word, friluftsliv (free-loofts-liv), that translates as “open-air lifestyle.”
