I caught the travel bug during my college study abroad experience in Florence, Italy, where I spent my days studying food and wine, and my weekends exploring various European countries.

President and Owner
Planning international travel with Swain Destinations starts with a blank piece of paper. The trip is tailored from the very start by myself and my dedicated team to offer American travelers the opportunity to create a completely customized trip to far-flung destinations, including Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific, Asia, India, and Africa.

I enjoy knowing that I play a part in that.
