About Me

My name is Simon Collinge & I live in Burnley, Lancashire with my wife Kristy and our son Bailey, both of who not only share but drive my love for travel.

In the words of Hans Christian Anderson, ‘To Travel Is To Live’, and that is definitely my philosophy. If I’m not already on holiday, I am usually thinking of, or booking my next adventure, as travelling truly is what I live for.

By sharing our own holiday adventures and experiences, and providing a personal service for each and every client, I want to ensure a first time client becomes a lifetime client and even a friend!

Some of our own adventures have included bottle feeding orphaned baby elephants in Africa,  hearing the indescribable noise of F1 cars speeding round the Grand Prix circuit as the sun sets over the marina at the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, skiing down a mountain in glorious sunshine in Andorra, snowboarding to a wedding in Banff, Canada.

We even occasionally manage to enjoy some ‘adult only’ time, be that relaxing in the sunshine with a good book whilst onboard a river cruise sailing peacefully along the Danube with the stunning backdrop of the Wachau Valley to sharing tapas and a bottle of wine in the bustling streets of Alicante in the shadow of the impressive Santa Barbara castle, the world is for exploring and slowly but surely, we are trying our best to explore it!

Whatever your holiday requirements, I want to ensure your holiday is perfect for you in every detail so don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me a message, and start experiencing your own adventures of a lifetime!
