Where's the most memorable place you've ever traveled?

Elizabeth: I'd say Barcelona. It was an energetic place. The city was just vibrant. The food, the culture - we just had an amazing time when we were there. We went on a Mediterranean cruise last year, and we spent two weeks throughout Europe.

Jacqueline: To Japan. I spent 10 days traveling to five cities. It was such a unique experience, just to see that there's another whole world out there. I ate things I thought I would never try.

What's one place you'd like to go in the future ?

Jacqueline: Greece is at the top of my list. It just looks beautiful from the pictures. It seems like there's so much history there with Athens, Mykonos, Santorini and the islands.

Elizabeth: South America - Brazil or Chile. We have not traveled throughout there yet, and we want to. Also, actually we're thinking about going to Prague and Vienna, so we're all over the place.

Other than using a travel agent, what's the secret to a great vacation?

Elizabeth: I think it's planning and disconnecting from the world. We always say that when you go on vacation, you should leave any type of connection at home. That's how you can regroup, gain a better perspective, have an open mind and come back refreshed.

Jacqueline: I would say it's really figuring out what you want out of a vacation - whether you want adventure, whether you want relaxation, whether you want cultural activities. A lot of people come to us and say, "I want a cheap vacation." Is that really what you want? A lot of things people think they can't do, they can.

What's it like owning a business with your sister?

Jacqueline: It's fun. We balance each other out. We're best friends, so it's getting to hang out with your best friend every day. Of course, there are times when we butt heads. Our strengths and weaknesses align with each other.

Elizabeth: Sometimes I get a little stressed, and she's able to calm me down. We do have a lot of fun. We work really hard, but then we'll play hard, too.
