I have worked in travel for over 20 years now, satisfaction is so important in this industry and this is why I still love my job. I started with American Express building tailor made itineraries across the globe then I moved into the luxury side of travel working as a tour operator. I have travelled extensively and to include a few: Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles, Oman, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Some Caribbean islands, Thailand, Malaysia, Borneo and specialist destinations like Sri Lanka, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia and New Zealand. I have also been to the USA and Canada and much of Europe and North Africa. There is nothing better than first-hand knowledge.
Amongst my travel list is a combined type of holiday such as, Beach, City Break, Island Hopping, Train Journeys, Wine Tasting, Safari, Skiing, River Cruising and more.
A hotel with a large room and a good size balcony. I don’t like meal restrictions and I need be close to a town as I love exploring and dining out. The hotel must have comfortable sun loungers, a heated pool (in winter), fine dining and a smart trendy bar! These are my little concerns and you will have yours too, my job is to understand your concerns and ensure that any of those you dislike are eliminated.
I love the Formula 1, the British GT – anything that competes in a car race. I started this career with travel counsellors to have a work life balance as having small children does bring challenges but now its almost perfect! I can have the diary I always wanted.
Family time is important, however when the opportunity arises a night out with my better half or friends is always good fun. A nice meal accompanied by a bottle of Amarone is perfect!
Some people don’t like to talk “Shop” when out and about however for me its hard not to, as one of the most discussed topics nowadays socially is travel. Such a happy thought.
Travel is not just a job it really is adapting your life to include holidays, memories and that inner excitement whilst counting down the days to your next adventure.
I learn something new every day which is great, I am proud to be apart of the Travel Counsellor family.
Where are you off to next? I am here to fulfil your conversation. I offer an excellent service you can’t get anywhere else. I take that stress away and will create that perfect holiday for you.
