About Carla

My passion for travel began at the age of 18 I traveled alone to London for a 1 year working holiday. I returned home 4 years later!

I fell in love with Europe! Based in London I lived, worked and traveled around the UK, Ireland and Europe. I immersed myself in the history, beauty, culture, architecture, languages and food! Travel became a passion. My love affair with Italy and France continues and I have explored both countries intimately by car and rail. In more recent years I have traveled widely to West and Eastern Europe, USA, Hawaii, Jamaica, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Japan, United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, India, Canada and Fiji. I have also traveled to many parts of our own very beautiful country.

I believe a good travel professional is part counselor, confidante and concierge! I draw on my passion for travel and wisdom of experience, gleaned from extensive global travel and 16 years professional experience with Australia's leading airline, QANTAS Airways. I have significant first-hand knowledge of all facets of travel arrangement and pride myself on giving the highest level of personalized service.

As an independent consultant affiliated with MTA - Mobile Travel Agents, I can provide a seamless and complete travel service, at your convenience. MTA's affiliations with prestige suppliers ensures you receive quality and competitive flight prices, hotels, holiday packages, cruises and tours. I can even book your place in SPACE! ‘Mobilising' the experience and delivering service differently, my sincere and knowledgeable approach to your planning will help you realise your travel dreams.

I have broad experience constructing tailor-made itineraries and can advise you of the perfect tour or even how to find an apartment or villa, allowing you to live alongside the locals! Will your next holiday be luxury or leisure, a family experience, adventurous, or the perfect balance of culture and nature on a small ship cruising through the Mediterranean or Adriatic?(one of my personal travel experience highlights) Or perhaps you will visit our closer neighbours in the South Pacific or Asia… wherever you go I would love to take you there!
