As a “Personal Travel Manager” for over 6 years, I continue to work using technology to path my way in keeping in touch and sharing destinations.
During a Working holiday in the 70’s, I first joined the Travel Industry in London. Since then I have worked for various agencies and brands in Townsville, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and more recently on the Gold Coast. Along with Hostessing Queensland Tours for AAT Kings, I spent time as a PADI Dive Master on the Great Barrier Reef, Taught Yoga for TAFE and Hand Painted Bikinis and clothing. Now I have a small clothing brand called Moo Moo Madness which are dresses made from sarongs in Bali which I give to clients as a gift and for any referrals.
After 20 years based on the Gold Coast as a Cruise Specialist, I enjoy creating all types of holidays including Family and Small Special Interest Groups from 2 to 22 to all destination.

Australia – All over including Thursday, Norfolk and Lord Howe Islands. Cruising most of our coastline including the Kimberley on MV Orion. My interests in diving led me to become a Dive Master on the Great Barrier Reef then a Tour hostess with AAT Kings on their Queensland Tours. We are such a lucky country and I encourage growth of our Aboriginal Culture to share with the rest of the world.
South Pacific – Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand & Honolulu. Mainly Cruising – New Zealand has a beauty beyond most Australians expectations – cruising NZ Fjords are like going to Europe and/or Canada yet so close to home. Nov 2016, enjoyed an expedition cruise from the Solomon Islands to Vanuatu on a Russian Expedition ship which took us to remote Islands to learn about these amazing cultures. Technology ie Solar Energy aids many of these islands to survive and exist within their own cultures.
Asia – Bali, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines, Vietnam, India and Sri Lanka. River cruising the Mekong and Ocean Cruising the Malacca Straits from Singapore. Did you know the Mekong. River system starts in Tibet and runs though most Asian counties and was once called the Camara Empire? Recently Wonderful Indonesia invited me on Scuba Diving Destinations such as Derawan (Borneo), Raja Ampat (Western Papua) & Alor (Timor) These are some of the best spots I have ever dived. Raja Ampat has an amazing fish life due to sharks becoming distinct after being fished out for Shark Fin soup. They are slowly returning. China is fast growing and already Westernized. Sri Lanka has diversity with it’s scenery, one day in “Little Britian” surrounded by Tea Plantations and the next on Safari in a National Park seeing Leopards and Elephants.
South Africa and Mauritius – Most of South Africa including Kruger Park & Sun City. Surfing & Diving in Mauritius. Africa is a lot like Australia in climate and appearance. It is a country to enjoy and appreciate the wildlife while they still have it. To see the “Great Five”is a must!
Middle East – Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Jordan – My favourite destination is Jordan, where it all began, the Dead Sea. We constantly try to understand conflict in our world, It is history or religion or both combined? Yoga and fitness inspired me to trek to the Treasury in Petra and into the desert of Wadi Rum. I seek out suitable Spa facilities in most destinations, my favourite being the oldest Turkish Baths in Istanbul.
Sub-Continent – Recently visited the Golden Triangle in India – Delhi, Jaipur & Agra. Thoroughly enjoyed learning the history of this region – Indian and Middle Eastern cultures coming together centuries ago. This Hindu and Muslim interaction created the fabulous Maharajah Dynasty of wealth and colour. The Taj Mahal is a product and reminder of this era, such beauty and peace. India is changing and worth seeing before progress, like China takes away it’s old world charm. A safe and fascinating country .
Europe – All over UK Ireland & Europe by Train, Bus Tours and specialising in River and Ocean Cruising. Favourite cruise – Trans-Atlantic crossing from Venice to Miami. My favourite European train trip is from Paris to Italy via the Swiss mountains and terrains, I never knew such beauty existed except on postcards.
USA & Canada – The East Coast by self-drive and bus tours, cruised the Mexican Riviera & Alaska. Enjoyed the Rocky Mountaineer train in Canada. My favourite city is San Francisco, surrounded by the bay, the Woods and SFO holds onto so much history.
