Hi! My name is John Michalski and I can't wait to work with you!

About Me

My passion for travel started 30 years ago while living in Anchorage, Alaska. Every year I took the opportunity to travel to Hawaii and other states in the lower 48. Nothing compares to visiting a destination, seeing the local sights, and taking advantage of the different activities. One year, I had all my friends so excited about a ski trip to Heavenly Valley that the next year I put together a package for the 20 of us to ski for a week. That was the beginning of my journey to help others experience the world of travel. My travels within the United States also inspired me to extend my experiences to cruises and all-inclusive resorts.

I am continually building my knowledge and travel experience so, together with you, I can find you the ideal vacation, honeymoon, or destination wedding. Through my training and firsthand visits, I have grown my expertise of the major all-inclusive resorts and cruise lines to become a specialist in travel.

Why Work With Me

I have spent most of my adult life in sales, purchasing and finding the right product at the right price for my customers. I share that knowledge with my clients to provide you stress-free travel–whether it’s a romantic getaway or a destination wedding with 40 of your friends and family. All aspects of the trip will be planned, from the time you depart your local airport or cruise dock, until you have returned home.

As your personal Travel Agent, I will devote my time and effort to making sure you’re happy with your travel options. If you need any assistance, I’m just a phone call or email away, so you’ll receive the immediate attention you deserve.

Through LoveShack Vacations, I've made valuable working relationships with resort and cruise line personnel. If any problems should arise with your trip, it will be handled with the utmost urgency.

How I Got Started in Romance Travel

As I was touring resorts last year, I had the opportunity to see several weddings on beaches. I also saw how the resort staff would decorate rooms for honeymooners and anniversaries and I thought how cool would that be to help others have that experience.

Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but to add in a honeymoon also! With all the research and details, it can be exhausting. I will do all the research for you, find options and together we can find the perfect Destination Wedding and Honeymoon.
