I believe that travel has the power to transform people.
To experience the culture, history, look, feel, sounds smell and tastes of a new destination is what makes travel exciting. Travel has the power to educate, inform, broaden the mind and breed tolerance amongst people of different religions, races and backgrounds.
I believe wholeheartedly that planning your holiday is so much more than deciding the “where, when and how”. It is also about the “what and why”. Why do I wish to travel here? What do I wish to see and learn about? Why does this destination excite me? What type of experiences do I long for?
As a professional travel advisor with over 20 years' experience in many aspects of the travel industry, I can help you answer these questions, and tailor-make a holiday experience that will give you endless stories to recount upon your return, and memories that will last you a lifetime.
I can assist and advise you in choosing the best air travel, accommodations, sightseeing options and immersive experiences to suit your needs. Whether it's a cruise or a tour, independent travel or small group exploration, I can access the right people to provide the right experience for you.
I can offer advice in choosing great dining options, unique local experiences, and for those wanting the 5-star experience, exclusive benefits available through MTA's association with Virtuoso and Cruiseco to deliver more value to your travel dollar.
Everything from the budget family holiday to the luxury 5-star experience can be made better with great travel advice. I can offer you the peace of mind of 24/7 assistance no matter where in the world you are. I can offer the service of coming to you, for an appointment to discuss your plans, at your convenience.
My personal travel has taken me all over the United Kingdom and Ireland, Western Europe, parts of Scandinavia and Russia. I have travelled to many parts of Asia including Singapore and Vietnam, Borneo and Bali. Throw in Fiji, the Maldives and New Zealand, add some Jamaica, USA and Canada, with a touch of Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands for good measure.
I love cruising and was honoured to be nominated as a Finalist at the 2017 CLIA Cruise Line Industry Awards for the Best Home Based/Mobile Travel Agent in Australia. I have personally cruised with P&O, Princess, Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Lines. I have very strong ideas on which cruise line suits which type of traveller. This is an important choice to make when booking a cruise.
I love sharing my passion for travel and have given many presentations to local schools, service and social clubs – it is a wonderful way to stay in touch with my community.
I look forward to the chance to work with you and plan your travel to give you the rewarding experiences you deserve.
