Wind_Wine_May31_2011Hi there and thank you for checking out my website.  My name is Jutta (Wilhelm) Farrer and I am originally from Bad Hersfeld, Germany. About 20 years ago I was tired of the long, cold German winters and took a chance and moved to the U.S. where soon I discovered the magic of living on one of the only islands in the world that you can drive to: Key West.  Living in a small town with a cosmopolitan yet eclectic feel allowed me to strike a balance between work in the tourism industry and play.  I enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, bicycling and yoga, all of which are indigenous to island life.  After 13 years of enjoying this lifestyle, I decided to try and find the same small town environment only in an alpine setting.  That’s when I discovered the area known as Cherokee, in the mountain region of Western North Carolina. It is here I hike to hidden waterfalls, mountain bike, raft and paddle on rivers and lakes and study the Cherokee tribal customs.

I am fortunate to live between these two magical places; one surrounded by water and the only living coral reef in the continental U.S. and the other surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains, heavily influenced by the continued spirit and customs of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

With 18 years of experience in the tourism industry, I provide tourism related ground operational services to tour operators and travel industry professionals as well as individuals.  My German language skills and work ethic provide you and your clients with a level of trust and understanding that is unique to both doing business in the United States and more directly to specialized areas such as the Florida Keys and Western North Carolina.  Being a ‘local’ in both areas, not only do I have extensive knowledge but more importantly have the personal contact with the attractions and experiences that are not available to most travelers.   In addition to this specialized approach, I am well aware of the importance of maintaining the balance between experiencing the natural beauty and preserving it for future enjoyment.

Digital StillCameraAs your local travel specialist and partner, I can offer you fast answers, easy contract negotiations and a profitable business partnership.  I am your connection for successful vacation and event planning in two very special vacation destinations:  the Florida Keys and Key West and the mountain region of Western North Carolina.

I look forward to sharing with you my idea of island life and the alpine playground of the Appalachian mountains.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
