About Petrina

Hi my name is Petrina and welcome to my website.

My passion for travel started with a daydream that soon became a reality. My very first trip at the age of 10 to America was where it all began and 30 plus years on my feet are still itchy and my bucket list long. I have travelled to 40 countries and still only scratched the surface.

Some of my most memorable travels include snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, being ‘almost' sold for 300 camels (in Egypt), visiting the Giza Pyramids, getting engaged on a Gondola in Venice, river cruising from Germany to Amsterdam, visiting the Batu Caves (Malaysia), attending the ‘Lion King' in London,fishing for tuna off the coast of Aitutaki (ok I didn't do much fishing but I did a lot of ‘observing' and eating), dancing at the Moulin Rouge (not on stage but I was so close…), swimming in the Mediterranean Sea, wandering around one of the oldest universities in Coimbra (Portugal), Stand Up Paddleboarding in Fiji, eating snails in Seville (Spain), visiting the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest tower in the world (did I mention I'm scared of heights), and cycling on the Xian City Wall (China) to name a few…

Whether you're a first time traveller excited about the journey ahead, the curious traveller with your eyes, ears, and mind wide open, the thrill seeker looking for the unfamiliar or the escapist, I look forward to bringing your vision and dreams to fruition.

Previous experience

I have over ten years experience in the travel industry training with Flight Centre, working as a senior consultant with Harvey World Travel, and most recently a senior consultant with Escape Travel. I have been very fortunate to travel to 40 countries (and counting); 7 in Asia, 2 in Africa, 22 in Europe, 2 in North America and 7 in the pacific.

Areas of specialty

I consider myself an all round travel consultant however I do specialise in creating complex itineraries that involve a multitude of elements. While Europe, North America, Asia, and the South Pacific (including our very own Australia) are my most knowledgeable and frequented destinations, I have touched soil in North Africa (Egypt and Morocco) and the middle east (UAE), and have South America and Alaska firmly on my radar…
