A little about me:

Why did I choose a career in Travel?

I always wanted to be involved in travel and tourism since being around 14 years old. I was born in a town surrounded by tourism, and moved to a city surrounded by ships which amazed me. I was in a very fortunate position that my step dad owned a couple of boats and we loved to have days out on it. I always wanted to be an air hostess or a croupier on a cruise ship to enable me to travel the world but i had my family young. Being an independent agent for a reputable operator is the next best thing. I have been brought up with tourism surrounding my everyday life.

I specialise in the following specific types of holiday...

I particularly like Cruising Vacations, Family Holidays and Honeymoons and choose these as my desired specialist holiday types.

Destinations i have experienced:

I have been very fortunate to visit many places over the years. I have experienced Spain, France, Italy, Egypt, America and the Caribbean.

My favourite destinations are...

My favourite destinstions to date are St Maarten and Spain. I went to St Maarten for a cruise excursion and we went to Maho Beach for the day. I was amazed with how white the powdered beach is and how blue and warm the sea was. As an added bonus we were right at the end of the runway for planes coming in and out of the airport. The people that live on the island were amazing and would talk and make conversation with you as though they had known you for a while. This was on my bucket list of things to do. It was truly amazing. Another firm favourite of ours is the good, old Costa Brava! Apart from being able to grab a good bargain for mainland Spain, Costa Brava has always been a firm favourite of ours for the family. We stay just up the coast, away from the hustle and bustle of Llorett in a small area called Pineda. Its a smaller and quieter resort which suits those travelling with young children as it is not so busy as other areas. Hotels have all the amenities we desire and staff have always gone above and beyond for us. We love to spend quality family time in this quaint and quiet area.

Why do my customers choose to book with me?

I try to go above and beyond expectations for my clients as much as i can as well as try and be on call for them before, during and after their travel. I can be quite informative for clients which require extra needs as i have been in those positions on a personal level and i can understand that not all people need just standard means of getting to their destination. Making sure my clients are satisfied is my number one priority.

My mantra?

If we were meant to stay in one place, we would have roots instead of feet.
