Few Words About Us
Meet Your Traveling Escorts:
- Travel with Nance
Well once upon
a time when I was 12 years old, my folks, Donna & George, took us on
a 3 week trip cross country on famous Rte 66 to California & Mexico.
THAT DID IT! Look at this giant and diversified place outside
Michigan said my adventure side. Still love the Mitten though!
Busted out of
H.S. to hitchhike & backpack Europe for a good 3 months. England,
Scotland, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Italy & Spain. Camping,
hostels and the sweetness of occasionally staying at someone’s home.
Love Cayman Brac, FL keys, California, Mexico, Punta Cana, etc., who
am I kidding there is adventure everywhere!
Made a living
mostly in IT operations, pgmr analyst and wrote mfg barcode system.
Tended bookkeeping & computer network in a big box store. Then on to
my own biz for 6 years Jellyfish Massage Therapy & Winning
Transitions Clinical Hypnotherapy. Bounced around from Schoolcraft
CC, Mott CC, Lansing CC & CHI.
For other fun
there’s always golf, digging in the dirt/flowers all summer,
kayaking, cooking, art & funky craft stuff. Lucky me has great
friends & family to hang with too. Life is Good.
Tell you what,
you meet the nicest, most interesting & fun people on Nance’s tours.
Come on lets share new adventures. Everyone has a good story!
I love to travel and meet new
people. Traveling really inspires me. The people I meet have a great
influence on, along with the fantastic places we visit.
I have been entertaining my whole life with music and magic, and seeing the entertainers on our trips, gives me a new
inspiration and perspective on my own performing.
I have done many things in my life, including going to Wayne State
University, and Western Michigan University. I have always been
adventurous and now that I am older, I really enjoy someone else
doing the driving and having the trips planned out so well, while I
can concentrate on the passengers needs.
I am currently consulting for a retail firm and handling all the
internet sales for my client. I love to keep busy. I have been
married for 18 years and have 3 dogs.
I am also in a classic rock band and I still perform magic shows,
DJ, play solo piano, and singing music shows.
So traveling a half a dozen times a year with Nance is a perfect
get-away for me, and to be with people who I really enjoy.
I can't wait to travel again, let's go. I hope to see you soon.
