About Me

Hi,Thank you for visiting my website page.  I have been in the Travel Industry on and off for almost 20 years.After studying travel and tourism at college I left to take my first job in the industry for Woodcock Travel, later leaving to take up a role at Lonsdale Travel.  I was then offered a job at independent travel agents Journeys a la Carte where I  found my niche in the industry and travel took a hold of me!

I was fortunate enough to travel extensively whilst at Journeys a la Carte, I also managed to fit in a sabbatical to travel around the world.  I was awarded various accolades including ‘long-haul consultant of the year’ and ‘sales consultant of the year’.  After nearly 10 years here I left to follow my dreams to explore a life in Australia where I worked and travelled for a year before returning home to the family that I missed very much whilst I was away.

Upon returning to the UK I worked for Travelbag for a while before starting a family of my own, I
now have two beautiful children and being back in the industry home-working is a dream come true.

I thrive on finding the perfect holiday for my clients, whether it be a family package holiday or a round the world trip.  I can provide unbiased opinions based on my own personal experience of many destinations.  I will do everything I can to ensure your holiday is exactly what it should be and pride myself in providing excellent customer service as well as value for money.  I will go the extra mile by dealing with all aspects of your holiday experience.

Besides Australia, which is where I left my heart,  its very hard to choose my favourite destinations.  China is a fascinating country, Brazil is colourful and offers fabulous sightseeing and Namibia offers stunning scenery.  I also love city breaks and up there at the top are San Francisco, Hong Kong, Copenhagen and Amsterdam.

Whether you need help planning an overseas wedding or honeymoon, a tailor made trip, cruise, city break, luxury getaway, flight, adventure or group travel, contact me and it would be my pleasure to help.
