G’day / Hello / Bonjour / Salut / Ciao / Hola / Csezc / Sawasdee & Welcome!
“You deserve a Personal Travel Manager” – If you travel and seek a professional to look after you, please read on…….
I love people, being flexible and am creative and organised by nature. I desire to travel to anywhere. Being a Personal Travel Manager has been one of the highlights within my career allowing me to be me. During my 26 years working in travel I have worked among airlines, tour operators, hotels, inbound and outbound conferencing, group travels, tour leading, corporate travel and my own business with TravelManagers. Although I have not touched down on every place in our world, my experience and passion can help make travel dreams come true to every part of the world.
My TravelManager clients hale from around the country, distance makes no difference regards to bookings with today’s technology firmly in place. We communicate really well and it works comfortably and efficiently.
Having been lucky to travel as a child, my love grew and grew from there. I was also an exchange student to Thailand where my love of spicy food, language, people and culture was totally fulfilled. Whilst living with a Thai family and attending the local Thai school I engrossed myself in being as “local” as I could and returned home speaking fluent Thai, itching to dance Thai style, and was possibly a little overweight for my bodyframe – it was good food man!
Then in my early 20’s I flew over to London to work, travel (and play). I visited many different countries in Europe during this time whilst returning to London after each trip to work some more to travel some more. I also spent a ski season in a town called Winter Park in Colorado, USA living “La Vida Loca” as well as further time in South Africa travelling all over the country (loving it so much I went back to live in Jo’burg for nearly a decade).
All my travels were crazy, crazy fun and educational at the same time filled with some pretty amazing memories and friendships which are locked in for life. I shared various accommodations with multiple people from all parts of the globe, I backpacked, rode buses, trains, taxis, I had a hitchhiking race from north to south of Italy, I flew many different airlines, slept on beaches (and was escorted off beaches!), shared a van with friends around Europe, hopped on organised tours around Europe and the UK, ran with the bulls, climbed that Great Chinese Wall, skipped the streets of Paris, stood in pole position in Monaco, skied on fabulous powder snow in Colorado, held up the Leaning Tower in Pisa, was a breath away from orangutans in Borneo, swam, dived and sung songs in Fiji with the incredible local people, had fun “braai’s” (bbq’s) in the African bush whilst viewing the wildlife, ate amazingly diverse food, partied way too hard at Octoberfest in Munich, scuba dived with whale and ragged tooth sharks in South Africa, and sailed in incredible places. So much more.
On yet another dimension of my travels however I stayed in 5 star hotels, was wined and dined by friends, flew first & business class, wore amazing clothing, rode in limousines, was treated like royalty and lived a great life. It makes me emotional just remembering how lucky I have been to experience all that I have. At the end of the day, I made it happen and that it certainly did, it all happened! I am a lucky girl.
Those who know me well, know that I truly get a great buzz connecting with people from all walks of life, all ages and simply adore what I do. I crave knowledge and peace and if we can travel for the rest of our lives in search of what we want to know, what we want to see and who we want to meet, how awesome is that. I celebrate the diversity of our world, its uniqueness, its independence and its true beauty.

Penny has been an absolute gem when it comes to arranging travel for both ourselves and our family abroad. All of our transactions have been handled with ease due to Penny’s efficiency, knowledge and professionalism. Although there is an abundance of internet sites available to book your travel these days, there is nothing like having the personal service of a travel agent who can take the worry out of all the little things that need to be organized. My time is too valuable and life is too short to be surfing the Net for the best deals when I know that it only takes one phone call to Penny and she is on to it straight away.There are some things that you should leave to the experts, and one of those is your travel arrangements. I say, leave it with Penny!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your assistance in helping Samantha and I book and plan our upcoming trip to Europe and the UK. I have found your service to be very prompt, efficient and professional. It was good to know that if I emailed you with a question I could expect a prompt reply. Your knowledge and experience of the industry has been invaluable to Sam and myself, as we really had no idea what to look for, in particular with the selecting of a European Tour. We really valued your input to our decision process. Thanks again for making the process so smooth, and for sharing in our excitement!! We will be certain to recommend your services to any family member, friend or acquaintance who is looking to travel in the future.
I have always planned my own trips as I thought it was easier and cheaper and just too hard to explain to someone else what we wanted to do.I recently asked Penny to plan a trip for us and we were very surprised at how easy she made things and the good deals she was able to get.I was extremely happy with Penny's helpful and friendly attitude and would have no hesitation to do the same thing with future trips. I also have recommended Penny to others, and know that they too are very pleased to have had Penny plan their special holiday. Nothing has been too much trouble and everything has been done in an extremely professional manner.
