I love newbies! Everyone goes through the same screening process, newbie or not. If you have never seen a companion before and don't have a reference, then just leave the reference section on my reservation form blank.
I get this question a lot. And my answer is always "When you invite me." Feel free to send me a request and I will see about arranging a trip. Or you can always set up an Exclusive Date and I will make a trip just for you.
