Pineapple7 you're the best— I will never travel without you again. We enjoyed our visits and tours that you planned for us in Normandy and Munich — beautiful, historic and unique venues with private guides who really knew how to tell a story and keep us all engaged. The country hotel in Bayeux,FR and in Munich, each had a unique charm in its architecture, accommodations and setting. For anyone who wants to take the stress out of planning a vacation--go to Pineapple7— They helped us plan a beautiful family vacation with a variety of activities to keep the oldest (75 yo) to the youngest (18 yo) engaged and happy
Thank you for planning an AMAZING 50th anniversary trip to Normandy and Munich for my parents!!
Thank you Grace and Pineapple7 for your help with our recent trip to Germany. Our hotel—Eden Hotel Wolff—in Munich was a perfect choice for us! The location was so convenient and the hotel was lovely. We appreciate your help and expertise and look forward to our next travel adventure! 🍍✈️
Grace: Fellow Fairfax Chamber alum. Hope allis great for you and your family. I see you are in the travel business. How much do you know about tours of Ireland (southern preferred) and how does your service work? Thanks

Why You Should Check Your Passport's Expiration Date Right Now

If you're planning to travel internationally, make sure your passport is valid at least 6 months after the last day of your trip. And do you have enough blank pages at the end of your book? It's a requirement for some countries now.

Passport renewal is taking longer than usual, so give yourself more than enough time due to longer processing times.

Happiness: when I get travel pics of clients during their vacation. 🙂

This fabulous family of 6 was interested in a post-Christmas getaway. They wanted to go someplace within driving distance to the DC area and they were interested in a home instead of hotel rooms due to covid. I found them a lovely home on a private, oceanfront resort property. This way, they could enjoy the benefits of a resort AND get the privacy and safety of their own private place. In addition, since this home is part of the resort, covid protocols for sanitation and safety are extended to all lodging categories.

If you’re interested in a family getaway or a long weekend escape or if you’re only comfortable with driving to a destination, please contact Pineapple7. I care about the success of your trips. Travel has a magical way of making everyone happy: [email protected] or 5713380408.

If it’s good enough for George Clooney...

Working on a special itinerary for empty nesters who want to visit Lake Como and Bellagio next fall. It’ll be their first time to Italy!! They’ll spend an afternoon on a lake boat tour where they’ll get to wave at George’s home and then stop to tour Villa Balbianello.

They also want to see the Italian Alps while they’re in this region, so we’re adding time and securing train tickets for them to visit St Moritz.

This agenda is really coming together!

Limited travel this year has me reminiscing about some of my best trips in the past.

One of my favorite vacations to date was Pineapple7's Small Group Culinary Escape to Tuscany last fall. For half of the group, it was their first time to Europe, for most, it was their first time to Italy. I loved seeing the look of joy and wonder on their faces during our private food tour of Florence with a local chef. We feasted that day!! And we decided to go on an an impromptu gelato scavenger hunt around Florence. I always ordered pistachio in honor of my Mom.

To this day, it's a favorite vacation because I got to see Italy through their eyes (what a joy!!) And I had the chance to show people how I travel, how Pineapple7 hosts trips -- I embrace the local culture, seek out the hidden gems and local haunts. I believe that the best way to experience a country is through its food.

I wanted to make this trip extra special, so included exclusive access to places and experiences that most people don't realize is possible. One evening, our group visited a 500+ year-old farmhouse located in the heart of Tuscany. This property has been in the owners family for generations. They shared their family recipes, their cooking techniques, their farm-fresh ingredients, and their table with us so that we could enjoy a true Tuscan meal! I'll always remember the smiles and laughter in the kitchen that night!

And another reason why I'm so fond of this trip is because these like minded travelers did not know each other prior to our convergence on Florence, but they quickly bonded and left Italia as friends with life-long memories that we still talk about (I set up a WhatsApp group for us to communicate while in Italy and they still use it to share pics and touch base with each other!)

Travel brings people together and provides you with the gift of experiences. I'm so grateful for collecting so many amazing memories with these people!!

What's one of your favorite vacations to-date?

Buongiorno, Friends! I am working on a special trip to Sicily for a family of 5. Mama was born and raised in a little village south of Palermo. She has not returned home in 60+ years. Her son, his wife, and their two adult children will be accompanying her. I asked if it was their first visit to Italy. Mama gently corrected me and said: it's Sicily. We're Sicilian.

My local contacts in Sicily are gathering details on Mama's village. How fun will it be for them to walk in the same footsteps and on the same streets that the matriarch and her familia used!

Mama would like all 5 of them to stay under one roof -- maybe a villa. I can't wait to show them this historic property that I think will be PERFECT for them! It's available during their dates and fits their budget. This private villa was once a medieval palazzo and features high ceilings with exposed beams, cream and sun-washed walls, terracotta floors. After a day of sightseeing, they can relax on the postcard pretty patio with vibrant blooms, an orange tree, and colorful mosaics. Maybe enjoy a bottle of wine that they picked up during their private wine tour or laze in one of the loungers to soak up a little more Sicilian sun.

For their itinerary, I'm going to make sure they have 1/2 day or a full day to explore the charming nearby village -- only a 10 minute walk from their villa. They can pick up Sicilian salami, cheese, and bread to enjoy with their local wine and olive oil purchases.

Is a vacation to Sicily (or Italy) on your wish list? Let's chat! I'd love to design a one-of-a-kind trip to you: [email protected] or 5713380408
