About 10 years ago, I discovered the wonderful, unpredictable, crazy world of aviation. Working in and around airports was amazing. The best part was being able to make a difference in peoples lives by trying to make the start or end of their journey as stress free and enjoyable as possible.
After a few years I tried the other end of the travel spectrum. Travel Agent. What a difference! Instead of helping people in one small part of their journey, I was able to help in the whole experience. And I loved it. The more I learned, the more I wanted to help people, and the more I wanted to travel myself, and so began my own adventures.
Both myself and my family have been lucky enough to travel to many parts of the world, including UK and Europe, USA, Mauritius and New Zealand. We have also travelled extensively through much of Australia. Our favourite place is Bali, and have been there enough to nearly be called a local – nearly? Might need to work on my language skills more first.
In late 2011, I decided to set up my own business and became Michelle Edmead – Personal TravelManager. I am able to work one on one, give more customer focused service, and still be there for my family at all times. I have not looked back since. (I even managed to get my name on a plane).
America. It’s got so much to offer – from the history, to the culture, to the food and entertainment. And every time I go there, I discover something new to bring back and share with my clients.
Bali. Its like my second home. The sights, the smells, the tropical, laid back feel of the place and the people. Here I feel relaxed and clam and can sit back and enjoy life.
Cruising. Much of my love of cruising comes form the chance to see and discover so many places at once, while having one bed, one room, and unpack once. Yet all around, as you transit from one magical place to another, you are left to want for nothing, from coffee, to entertainment, to going to the gym before an afternoon cocktail! With so many choices of destinations, and so many levels of comfort and facilities to choose from, its difficult not to want to go back again and again.
Club Med. Cruising on land and with out the swells. I have been privileged to visit four amazing Club Meds, La Pointe aux Canonniers Mauritius, La Plantation d’Albion Mauritius, Bali and Bintan Island, both in Indonesia. Each one had the same familiar feel of family, as if you were visiting a different section of the same wonderful resort, but still being able to discover another part of the world.
