About me

Traveling isn’t just a hobby for me; it’s a lifelong passion deeply rooted in my family’s history and nurtured by a burning desire to explore the beauty of our world.

My love affair with travel was ignited by the stories of my beloved grandparents, who were true globetrotters. I vividly remember awaiting their return from escapades to far-flung, exotic destinations, eagerly anticipating their tales of adventure and the treasures they brought back. These cherished memories set the stage for a future filled with exploration.

At the age of 16, my world expanded dramatically when my grandparents took my sister, cousin, and I on a life-changing trip to Bali. For a teenager from regional NSW who had never ventured to Sydney, it was a profound eye-opener. That experience opened the floodgates of my adventurous spirit, propelling me to explore the diverse cultures and landscapes our world has to offer.

My affection for Disney has taken me to enchanted places like Tokyo Disney, Hong Kong Disney, Disneyland, and Disney World, where I’ve celebrated the magic several times. A Disney Very Merrytime Christmas cruise remains one of my cherished experiences in the world of Disney.

My travel adventures extend to the United States, where I’ve extensively explored all corners of the country. I’ve ventured to over 90 U.S. National Parks and Monuments, driven Route 66, and travelled the East and West coasts. I’ve set foot in 34 states, each with its unique charm and beauty.

With the arrival of my twin daughters, my family discovered our shared love for cruising. We found it to be not only great value for money but also an incredible way to cater to everyone’s interests. We’ve sailed from Sydney to Honolulu, explored the Caribbean, traversed the Panama Canal, delved into the heart of Asia, and cruised the Pacific. Next year, we’re eagerly anticipating our voyage to Alaska.

We have sailed with a variety of major cruise lines on voyages ranging from 3 to 21 nights.

Some of the highlights of my travels include dog sledding in Canada and the USA, sailing through the Panama Canal, swimming with majestic manatees, cradling a baby sloth, and driving the awe-inspiring Scenic Byway Utah 12.

Experiencing New York City at Christmas and celebrating a white Christmas in Park City, Utah, have also been magical moments.

My experiences and passion have equipped me with a wealth of knowledge and a treasure trove of tips and tricks to help you make the most of your holidays. Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or embarking on your first adventure, I’m here to inspire and guide you on your own remarkable journey.

Join me as I continue to explore our incredible world, one destination at a time. Let’s create memories, embrace new cultures, and discover the wonders that await us around every corner. Together, we can make each trip an unforgettable chapter in the book of our lives.
