I love to travel and take every opportunity to visit new and fascinating destinations.
I have sailed Alaska, South America, Europe, Australia & New Zealand and Caribbean destinations with the large ships, eg. Princess, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Oceania, Cunard, Holland America. The opportunity to not only experience an Alaska cruise but also to tour and see the awesome Alaska scenery from Anchorage to Fairbanks was a fabulous experience. Sailing with the various cruise lines with their large ships (Queen Mary travelling from Southampton to New York) or the smaller, more intimate ships (Oceania – Rome to Venice) were excellent opportunities to enjoy the different cruise experience each offers. Traveling on the river cruises in Russia (Moscow to St. Petersburg), France (Avignon to Lyon) and Europe (Amsterdam to Vienna and Basel to Amsterdam) offered excellent opportunities to relax on one of the boats travelling with Viking, AMA, Avalon, Uniworld while touring the fascinating towns and villages along the rivers.
Some of my touring includes many areas of Europe with its beautiful scenery (the Amalfi coast in Italy), hearing the fascinating history of Greece, Egypt and China. Travelling to Thailand, India, Cambodia, Bali and learning about their country, their culture and their very different cuisine was an unforgettable experience. Not to be missed was seeing the kangaroos in Australia and beautiful scenery of New Zealand and hiking the glacier at Franz Joseph. Visits to Tunisa, Spain and Portugal offered an opportunity to check out destinations for beach type holidays; for perhaps long term stays. Fiji is a place like none other with its very friendly people, beautiful sand beaches, the blue waters and an opportunity for awesome snorkeling.
My most recent travels have included:
- Jordan – travelling from Amman to Aqaba with a stop at fascinating Petra
- Africa – a safari in Tanzania – to see the animals in their natural habitat is an experience like none other!
My bucket list, hopefully in the near future:
- South Africa with Victoria Falls
- Peru & Machu Picchu
- The list becomes endless!
I have been a travel consultant since 1999 and welcome the opportunity to share my knowledge with you.
I take every opportunity gain in-depth knowledge of vacation destinations by visiting these areas and also completing destination specialist programmes, eg. Australia, Fiji, Egypt. Also, to better assist my clients in booking their next cruise holiday, I have completed courses with Princess Cruises, Holland America and Uniworld, Paul Gauguin, Avalon, and Oceania and the CLIA (Cruise Line International Association) certification.
