Get a Quote from Nicole

After growing up outside DC, I spent about 10 years in Hampton Roads VA. I moved back to the DC area for about 10 years before moving to North Carolina. We live in a fairly rural area and are loving the change of pace. We also love being able to make a day-trip to the beach or head out for a weekend camping trip in the mountains or at a nearby lake. So, I'm very familiar with VA, DC, MD, and NC having lived and worked in these areas. 

My "we" is myself and my pretty awesome 16-year old daughter.  I'm thankful that she loves to travel just as much as I do!  We also have 2 big puppies - 4 year old Chloe and 1 year old Cody.  They're both black lab-ish.

Disney World is definitely one of our favorite locations - we've been at least once a year since she was 3 and we try to squeeze in extra trips whenever we can. We've gone a various times of the year, for anywhere from 2 days to 12 days. My favorite time to go is at Christmas, with Halloween being a close second. We've stayed in many of the different resorts on property from Value to Deluxe Villas and I love them all.  I honestly don't think I'll ever get tired of going to Disney - there's just SO much to see and do!   

When we aren't at Disney World, we love to try new things and visit new places. We especially enjoy doing food tours and trying local food whenever possible. I'll admit that we've planned more than one trip around food :) Sometimes we plan trips months in advance, but we also enjoy taking spur of the moment adventures. In fact, one of our favorite things to do is take road trips. It's a great way to explore and be a little spontaneous. We love getting to explore different areas of the country and I'm hoping to finish visiting all 50 states soon.

Favorite Disney quotes: “Adventure is out there!” and “I want adventure in the great wide somewhere…”
