About Carol

I have been a travel consultant with Dimensions in Travel since 1984 and have been a Certified Travel Consultant since 1988.  I didn’t grow up in a family that traveled. We stayed the same week every year at the same resort, in a little cabin along the Russian River in northern California. But I had an aunt who worked for American Airlines, and she and my uncle went on vacations that sounded so exotic like Mexico and Hawaii (before it became a state). That’s what I wanted to do as well. Even though I hate to fly, it doesn’t keep me home. Airports can be exciting, romantic places, too. I met my husband John, whom I call an Englishman with an American passport, when he worked for British Airways at SFO 41 years ago. I thought he was the nicest man I’d ever met, still think so today, and we celebrate 40 years of marriage in 2023! We’ve had lots of adventures traveling.  

Carol and John Silvermoon

After working for Dimensions in Travel for many years at the office in Novato, California, I now work from my home office in Vida, Oregon. I look forward to working with you in planning your next vacation.

Favorite Land:

I traveled to Cambodia and Vietnam – yes that’s me in the rickshaw below. I enjoy helping plan itineraries to this fascinating part of the world.

Most Unique Place I’ve Been

Dubai! Where else can you ski or snowboard in an indoor ski resort, and then, drive the same day over desert dunes in a vintage Range Rover AND later ride a camel? I saw amazing architecture, the tallest building in the world and a shopping mall with 1,200 stores. There is nothing else quite like Dubai.


Favorite Cruise

Sailing in Tahiti on the Paul Gauguin. Hawaii gets as many visitors over a weekend as Tahiti gets in a year. Hawaii is beautiful but Tahiti is spectacular.

My Travels

  • I travel frequently to Europe. 
  • I’ve been to England more than 30 times. 
  • I have done 8 river cruises with the major river cruise lines in Europe.
  • I’ve sailed on the luxury ocean cruise ships of Cunard, Crystal, Silversea and Regent Seven Seas, including a TransAtlantic voyage with Seabourn. 
  • Kenya is another favorite – so colorful and vibrant.


“It was great trip!  Side Car tour, Mandela Tour, wine country, food, the Silversea Harvest Dinner, the add-on safari – all excellent!” George and Marlee, about South Africa, Silversea cruise & safari.

“We so enjoyed our vacation/vet conference in Maui and Oahu! I appreciate having the confidence to know you hand picked our hotels…When you have booked our travel, I’m just so much more relaxed about the arrangements, so again I can only say thank you” Sadie, about Hawaii

“The Seabourn Sojourn ship was outstanding and our overall trip was amazing. Petra and Israel were my favorites. Having Ted Koppel on board to do lectures was also important to put this complex region into perspective… Going through the Suez Canal was also telling as to the volume of traffic and strategic importance…”  George, about Arabia

The trip was outstanding. All of the drivers, guides, and boat drivers were knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The hotels were very nice and all served a hearty breakfast. The days that we had a guide with a scheduled itinerary were much better than the days when we were “at leisure“. I never realized how much of an energy drain It is to make decisions.  Starting the day at the “Early“ time of 9 o’clock enabled us to get more things done.  Bill W, about their Italy trip.
