About Michelle

Hi, welcome to my web page. I‘m Michelle, and I live in Meriden in the West Midlands. Over the past 32 years I have been fortunate enough to travel to some amazing places all round the world, which has enabled me to pass on my first hand experience and knowledge of many destinations. I love nothing more than spending time finding customers their perfect holidays and I aim to provide a personal and bespoke service by matching individual travel requirements to the right travel products. Everything from family holidays, couples only, cruises, independent travelling, city breaks, luxury travel, staycations and much more.

After studying travel & tourism at college I pursued my dream and joined the travel industry, where I stayed for 21 years working mainly in the conference and incentive and business travel sector. After taking a break to raise our 3 lovely children I am so excited to be back in the industry I love and on this new exciting journey with an amazing team at Designer Travel.

My children have also travelled extensively since they were 3 months old, and already have been to some pretty amazing destinations from hotels and villas in Spain, Cyprus, Portugal and Greece, to all inclusive in Maldives, Mauritius and extensively around the Caribbean. I also have a wealth of personal experience of travelling with children with autism, ADHD and additional needs.

Some of my personal travel highlights so far include:-

  • Staying at Tiger Tops Jungle lodge in Nepal and bathing the baby elephants
  • Swimming with the manta rays in the Maldives
  • Renewing our wedding vows on the beach in St Vincent & the Grenadines
  • Feeding the orphaned orangutans in Borneo
  • Seeing in the new Millennium on South Beach Miami
  • Exploring the Vatican City
  • Partaking in a charity fun run over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
  • Magical Christmas adventures with the children in Lapland
  • Driving through the Stellenbosch winelands and sampling some amazing wines.
  • Dining at the Cotton House on the island of Mustique.

So many amazing and beautiful places so far, and yet I still have an evergrowing bucketlist of destinations!
