Travel has always been a passion for my family. I cannot remember a family meal or get together where we havent talked Travel – where we have been and where we are planning or dreaming of going! As a child my family travelled whenever they could and I have such fond memories of family car trips and our big USA adventure in a motorhome when I was a teenager travelling through Yellowstone and up to the Rocky Mountains of Canada. Now I have my own family and have taken much joy in planning our family holidays together and watching the delight on my childrens faces as we experience new destinations and have fun together. We have skiied, cruised, seen sights in some great cities and Disney’d our way around the USA!
Travelling with 3 kids is always an adventure and finding accommodation for a family of 5 has become somewhat of a speciality for me!
Working in the travel industry for over 25 years in a variety of roles and for a Global Travel provider, Ive seen a lot of change but what technology can never change is experience. The ability of an experienced agent to plan in detail and to share their own experiences with clients.
Being in this industry for 25 years Ive had some amazing opportunites and have been very fortunate to enjoy travel to many countries and destinations including:
USA – I have been to most states of the US and have taken my kids to Disneyland and Disneyworld quite a few times – Disneyworld is a destination on its own and requires extensive planning which I can assist with. From great walking tours in New York to Biking the Bridge in San Francisco and hiking in Yosemite National Park , I have some great ideas for family holidays! I was in LA in March of this year and spent some time checking out hotels in Los Angeles, Anaheim and also Huntington Beach!
Hawaii – In November 2015 I spent a great few days in Hawaii checking out hotels and taking in the sites and I have been to Oahu (Waikiki) Maui and Kauai.
Canada – Those Rocky Mountains! I have skiied Lake Louise, Whistler and Big White and taken the Rocky Mountaineer across to Vancouver – breathtaking scenery
Europe – Recently I was in Croatia and Slovenia – beautiful parts of the world and very popular now for travel, other areas in Europe I have seen are France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the UK.
Cruising – I have cruised the Eastern and Western Caribbean in recent years on 2 different cruise lines. Having worked for a cruiseco agency, my cruising knowledge is extensive.
Asia – In 2014 I spent 10 days in Vietnam and had a wonderful time experiencing the great food and culture of this country, other destinations in Asia include Hong kong, Singapore and Thailand.
Im passionate about travel to the USA, Canada and Hawaii ! I can create itineraries you will long remember with experiences your family will love – whether it be a driving holiday, National Park experiences, Skiing or Cruising!
