About Karen Howland
I have always suffered from wanderlust! I’ve lived all over the U.S. and Europe as an “Army brat” and a naval officer’s wife, studied history, geography and politics in college, and planned trips for my family that would introduce them to other cultures.
After sending my sons off to college, I decided to share my passion for seeing the world and formally joined the travel industry. Now, eighteen years later, as a professional travel advisor and manager at Lake Shore Travel, I strive to create extraordinary experiences and a life time of memories for my clients. I love the challenge of finding destinations and planning itineraries that will please everyone from age 5 to 95, be it elephant riding in Thailand, spotting the Big Five in Africa, or cruising down the Rhine past centuries old castles.
Here are a couple of notes I’ve received from clients:
“Thank you, Karen, for steering us to wonderful hotels in incredible places with fantastic local tour guides and handlers. Everything was scheduled perfectly.”
Mother and Daughter graduation trip to Greece
“Thanks for all the planes, cars, boats, breakfasts, massages, upgrades and all manner of amenities. We’d be lost without you.”
Retired, and now Adventurers
These comments reflect the standard I set for all my clients. Together we will create your memories of a lifetime!
