About Anne

Travel to me is so much more than just a journey. It's a way of opening your mind to the people, culture, flavours and sights a destination has to offer. I'm 33 and was born in Germany where I found my passion for travel at a very young age having had the advantage of travelling a lot of European countries during school holidays, excursions or on weekends - Yes, you can travel to a different country in less than a day. ;)

I started my travel career in 2005 and worked for a big Corporate Travel Company where I gained extensive experience about deadlines, must-haves and special requests for the corporate traveller.
After moving to Australia in November 2012 I have worked for a travel agency in Armidale looking after Corporate Accounts as well as finding my passion for leisure travel creating beautiful itineraries for my clients.
No matter if you travel solo, with friends, as a couple or as a group - let me be part of designing that perfect holiday for you. No stress, no hassle - just memories to last a lifetime!

My personal travels have taken me to Thailand, Bali, America, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, all around Australia and of course large areas of Europe having lived and travelled there for 26 years before moving to Australia.
Some of my favourite travel experiences include a Backpacking year around Australia with Highlights being snorkelling in the Ningaloo Reef, sleeping under millions of stars in the Red Centre and walking through Kings Canyon, the art and café scene in Melbourne and Cradle Mountain NP in Tasmania (only to name a few).
I spent a week driving around Iceland with my husband as part of our 6 weeks honeymoon trip through Europe. I experienced Norway in a nutshell and seen the Northern lights, have walked the last 115km of the famous Camino in Northern Spain and relaxed at a 5* Retreat on Koh Samui.

The list goes on - too many beautiful places and awesome experiences to list them all and for sure a hard call to name a favourite, but rest assured that after almost 15 years in the travel industry you will be in good hands with me.

As an affiliate of MTA - Mobile Travel Agents, I have the flexibility to work in with your busy lifestyle - no 9-5 constraints. Let's meet at a time and place convenient for you whether by phone, email or in person. I would love to help you design that perfect holiday that will soon become that special memory you will talk about with everyone having a smile on your face.
