Nancy "Liz" Raposa received her Bachelor's degree of Science in Communications from Emerson College in 1984 and started in the travel business in 1986. In 1988 she opened her own travel agency, Park Avenue Travel.
Liz's expertise in travel comes from her extensive travel experiences. Having been on more than 100 cruises to incredible destinations in the Caribbean, Alaska, Mediterranean, Transatlantic, Transpacific, Orient, Hawaii, Arctic, Antarctica, Australia & New Zealand. She has traveled from sea to land and all 7 continents with Seabourn, Crystal, National Geographic, & Celebrity Cruises where she followed in Darwin's footsteps by going to the Galapagos.
Through the tour companies, Tauck, Abercrombie & Kent, Lindblad & Globus she did 3 safaris to Kenya, Tanzania, & South Africa plus gorilla trekking in Rwanda with Terra InCognita EcoTours. Nancy's journeys have reawakened her love of photography, specifically, in nature, as it relates to eco tourism and conservation.
Having the incredible opportunity to photograph the polar bear of the Arctic and the penguins of Antarctica will one day be included in her book of Wild Wanderings she hopes to publish in memory of her father, who was her inspiration to travel and was by her side on almost every journey.
Included in her many favorite destinations are Egypt and Madagascar. She has lead numerous groups to Egypt having been there 25+ times and looks forward to returning again with future groups.
She is passionate about the island country of Madagascar and helping to save the endangered lemur colonies that reside in this biodiversity hotspot. Over 90% of Madagascar's wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth. Traveling to Madagascar 10+ times since 2007 & photographing more than 30 species of lemurs in their natural habitat makes her the expert for this destination. She enjoys independent travel or group travel through Nat Geo Tours, Lindblad Tours, & Terra Incognita Ecotours. Travel is a passion for Liz. Let her make it your passion.
