Bitten by the travel bug early

Bitten by the travel bug early

My childhood was spent daydreaming of visiting the amazing destinations that my Dad was travelling to. In my mind he was off exploring the world – in reality he was working. The stories & gifts that he brought home just made it all seem so exotic! I couldn’t wait to get out there & explore the world myself. After graduating with a degree that I didn’t know what to do with, I decided that maybe a trip around the world would give me some kind of clarity. 321 days later, I returned home with no clearer idea of what I wanted to do with myself – except to somehow share the joy that travelling the world had given me.

I took inspiration from the amazing travel agent who helped to book our big trip. She had made the planning fun, and took care every detail as if it were her own holiday. Everything went like clockwork, and allowed us to be awed by the fascinating new destinations that we were visiting for the first time, instead of worrying about being left stranded & alone. I wanted to become a travel agent be able to take to worry & hassle out of booking holidays, so that all my clients had to think about was what to pack & all the amazing new experiences that were ahead of them.

I started my career as travel agent in 2001, and I hope that I’ve amassed the knowledge & experience over those years to do just that for every client.

The more I travel, the more I want to travel, and the more I want to share the love of travel with as many people as possible. I happily would be off exploring the world all year if I could. Instead, I travel vicariously through my clients, putting together fabulous itineraries that I would love to experience myself. Seeing your photos & hearing your stories always make me smile.

If you’ve been bitten by the travel bug too, I would love to help – be it with a short getaway to the challenge of an extensive itinerary anywhere in the world! :) Christie
