As we head into the new year, we’d like to take some time to reflect on what an amazing year 2017 was for the Esplanade Team!

President Jacky Keith traveled back to Australia over Thanksgiving to visit her granddaughters, who live on Bondi Beach in Sydney.

Vice President Kit Schultze is engaged to long-time partner Charles and will be married in March.

Senior Travel Consultant Tess Holman is pregnant with her first child, due in mid-January – boy or girl remains to be seen.

Travel Specialist Diane Sakakini-Rao led her first (of hopefully many!) group trips throughout France, including private wine tastings and cooking classes.

Insurance, Visas, and Passport Specialist Sarah Hill spent the summer at an intensive Arabic Lanuage Immersion Program at Middlebury College.

Senior Travel Consultant Ksusha Levkovich ticked off her 4th continent and 29th and 30th countries visited with a trip to Thailand and Vietnam.

Director of the Africa Department Jill Potash successfully led her fifth group trip to South Africa – and the wildlife sightings have never been better!

Thanks for being a part of our wonderful year, and wishing you all the best for 2018!
