About me

I think I have always been a traveller.  From a very young age the ritual of travelling north exploring various parts of Australia or the beachside summers are memories I fondly remember.

The biggest influence and I am guessing the point at which my passion for travel began was whilst at primary school we went “Around the World in 80 Days” sampling language, culture, history and cuisine from each destination.  We had a passport that was stamped as our journey progress.

It has certainly had a lasting impact and made me aware that there was a “BIG” wide world out there waiting to be explored.

Explore I have , explore I did… I am yet to revisit all the countries explored on my “Around the World in 80 Days” journey.  I will get there one day.

I enjoy nothing more than packing my bag and heading out the door ready for a new experience, new challenge and even better new memories.

As an award winning Personal Travelmanager .  I am fully aware of the complexities of travel planning, and prepare thoroughly so things don’t go wrong. The ease of mind I bring to my clients is something you simply can’t find on the internet.

I have the solutions for you:

– Personalised Service, customising your itinerary to suit your needs

– It’s my near-obsessive attention to detail that ensures a seamless holiday that you remember for all the right reasons.

– I don’t give preference to any companies or airlines, I simply listen to my clients’ needs, work with you on the best options and make recommendations based on my knowledge and current specials and offers.

– My hours are not the standard 9am to 5pm, I am available early morning to late evening and weekends. I also provide a 24 hour emergency service to clients whilst they are traveling.

– Our relationship doesn’t end once I hand over the tickets, I often hear from my clients whilst they’re away and share in their excitement, and if the need arises, I’m only a phone call away if you require urgent help.
