Destination Specialist – Laura Ciccone
A Note From Laura
“My love for travel was influenced by parents who traveled the world. Though I’ve always loved traveling, I originally pursued a career in TV production. It wasn’t until after starting a family of my own that I realized I wanted to cultivate and share the benefits of relationships built through travel, so I started a new career as a travel advisor. Learning about different cultures, history, food & wine, and then sharing that information with my clients is a joy. I specialize in cruises, food & wine, family and adventure travel, and would consider it an honor to walk through the many stages of life with you. From a young couple, to new families and a lifetime of anniversaries, I’ll work with you to design custom vacations. I’ll listen to your preferences and then draw upon first-hand knowledge and personal connections to add unique details to each trip. My goal is to make certain you truly enjoy your most valuable asset, time to make memories with the ones you love.”
Area of Specialty: Asia and the Middle East
WorldTravelService® advisor Laura Ciccone specializes in travel to India, as well as throughout Asia and the Middle East. When it comes to traveling to India, Laura recommends immersing yourself in a truly authentic Indian experience by exploring the local markets, whether you’re in Mumbai, New Delhi, or any other destination in India. When you’re in the country, Laura insists you cannot leave without visiting the Taj Mahal.
She suggest slowing down and taking it all in—soak up the sights, sounds, and even the smells all around you, and those memories will be the souvenirs you’ll have from this trip all your life!
Interests: Food and Wine
Laura grew up with an Italian family where her father and grandmother were always cooking in the kitchen, “dueling with recipes.” She says this is where her passion for food and cuisine came from! Her grandmother always picked fresh herbs and vegetables from her garden, so fresh food has always been important to her. Laura suggests eating authentic cuisine wherever you travel!
