1) Favorite destination?

clifden1Clifden, Co. Galway in Connemara. When I win the lottery, I am buying a house here! The drive from Galway City out to Clifden on the N59 is one of my favorite drives in the whole world. The town is still essentially a fishing village, but with shops and good restaurants and you can see the sea from pretty much anywhere. I also like the stark landscape – mossy greens and browns, rocks, mountains, water and sheep everywhere – just takes my breath away every time.

 

2) Favorite type of Tenon trip?

I really enjoy helping people with self-drives and chauffeur drive itineraries. I like the challenge of getting them to the “typical” tourist spots but also including places that they might not know about or have not thought were worth seeing.

3) Curveball – Favorite book?

Nick Hornby’s How to be Good

I enjoy his voice as a writer – funny, dry, insightful and very much contemporary British. I like that he takes a timeless philosophical problem and lets it play out under modern circumstances.

 

4) Favorite part of traveling?

Looking at the scenery as it goes by, having a cup of coffee or tea in the early morning and just seeing a location wake-up to its day, looking in local grocery stores for “weird foods,” getting lost – ’cause that ALWAYS makes for a funny story!

5) Have you made any goof-ups on the job or while traveling?

Too many to count! Getting caught at a B&B in Austria stuffing rolls into our socks to eat later for lunch when we were broke students backpacking on Eurail passes – the owner was very gracious and gave us extra food for the road. Sitting with someone in Arles, France who thought she ordered rice, but really ordered riz – sweetbreads – and all of us being horrified by what appeared on her plate!

 

What past clients have said about Janet:

“Janet Dudley was great in helping me plan the trip, and making sure my itinerary was doable. There were several ideas that I had in mind, but after speaking with Janet I realized they weren’t realistic. She was great in helping keep the trip full of activities without being overwhelmed or pressed for time.” – Adam W., June 2014

“I have already recommended Janet to others. She was great and very responsive. We couldn’t have done this without her help.” – Beth J., June 2014

“Janet Dudley was a wealth of information and always steered us in the right direction. She was always pleasant, even when we peppered her with questions and very responsive to emails, etc.” – Mike S., October 2013

“Janet was extremely helpful and responsive. Just when I thought I had something worked out, I encountered a bump and she was there to help.” – Dawn D., September 2013

    We thnk of Janet as ‘part of the family’ – we missed her at Thanksgiving dinner, but toasted her in her absence… She helped my sister and I set up a glorious self-drive trip in November 2013 by taking our ideas, my dad’s input from his various visits and heritage-trail adventures, and her own wealth of knowledge and recommendtions to put together a trip of a lifetime…we can’t wait to work with her again for a return visit!
