Curated European Experience

Why travel with direction

Travel with Direction is a different kind of travel company.
I focus on culture, history, food, drinks, and fun in Europe. I connect you with that “living like a local” feeling because I am offering authentic outings in places and with people I know and trust. I am an ambassador of slow travel, emphasizing the experience, not a jumble of hastily thrown together snapshots.

Brook has a lifetime of travel experience and can handle the tedious stuff so you can sit back and enjoy your trip.

“It’s not just about getting to a destination, it’s about a wonderful experience and creating wonderful memories. Don’t just go, Travel with Direction.”  ~Brook
