Maximizing Beautiful Moments
Who is Jonathan Pilkington, and why does he do this?
My first career is as a voice teacher and professional singer. Traveling with my college choir ignited my passion for international travel. As a college professor, school breaks allowed me to explore whenever possible. Now as a freelance voice teacher, singer, and travel advisor, I travel frequently and use my experiences to create beautiful itineraries for clients (solo travelers, couples, families, or groups). My music training has really honed my listening skills and attention to detail, so you'll be in good hands!
One of my favorite quotes is by John O'Donohue: "Beauty is that in the presence of which we feel more alive." A carefully designed itinerary maximizes your beautiful moments--moments that can change your life!
Beautiful moments can be anything: an African safari or a hike in the woods a Mozart opera in Vienna or traditional music in an Irish pub, a sunset on an cruise in Alaska or sunrise at Haleakalā in Hawai'i!
A dream Italian itinerary. Live the good life!

I have access to any hotel you like (contact me), and many hotels come with exclusive benefits, such as room upgrades and resort credits. Using a travel advisor can save you time and money. Also, if anything goes wrong, the travel advisor takes care of you. Regardless, you receive personal attention, and you are supporting a small business! Here are a few of my favorite hotels:
