My name is Rose Forest! You never know what I'll be doing next! I often get told that people live vicariously through me. If I adopted everyone that asked, I would be Mom to a small town! I plan travel in my home office, and you might also see me either in front of or behind a camera. Yes, that's right... I can be found on a set as time permits. Someday, working at the Travel Channel would be ideal. That's the best of both worlds!
I got into the travel business in 2003 after taking a not-so-pleasant vacation that a Travel Agent planned for me. I felt uninformed and unprepared. When I returned I never heard from the Agent again. I thought if I planned travel for clients, I would do two things: One, make sure they are well informed and two, I would follow-up when they return. A well prepared client is less likely to be stressed and can spend more time enjoying their vacation! This is what I do for my client now.
I love to explore new destinations and experience the culture. I cruise at least once a year and I fit in as many land based vacations as possible. I love a spontaneous trip.
Aruba is one of my favorite and repeat visit destinations. That is why I decided to become an Aruba Certified Expert. Please let me know if I can plan a memorable vacation to Aruba for you as well!
In addition to my social media pages please also use my blog and TripAdvisor Page as resources for your travel.
