Stepping off the aircraft onto the tarmac at Bangkok Airport I realised I wanted to experience this feeling as much as possible. I was fascinated by the local culture, food and even loved the flight, that’s when I knew that I wanted to be a part of this industry. Having now worked in travel for over 14 years, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every day. I realised over the years that going away isn’t just about relaxing on a beach for 2 weeks on a ‘bucket and spade’ holiday, but that every trip is a different experience and adventure to be had. I get so much enjoyment from speaking to clients and sharing my experiences with them, helping create that excitement at the early planning stages of their next adventure.
Having been fortunate enough to have travelled to many different countries and continents over the years I particularly love visiting multiple destinations in one holiday. I took my first cruise when I was 15 years old sailing around the Mediterranean with my family. We visited 5 destinations over a week and I fell in love with the fact that I was seeing something different every single day. I have now been on several more cruises and I enjoy it more and more every time. There is nothing like seeing the ship in port and the excitement of waking up in a new place every morning.
I have never been to Australia or New Zealand this is definitely top of my list. My next trip I plan to sail with Celebrity Cruise Lines on their 16 night Australia and New Zealand cruise. Starting in Auckland, you sail around both Countries taking in some of the most beautiful places. Crystal blue waters, golden sand beaches and cosmopolitan cities, what’s not to love! I will also extend my holiday with a few nights in Auckland at the start and a few nights in Perth at the end.
When I think back to the very first holiday I took with my parents, I’m pretty sure that’s when I picked up the famous ‘travel bug’. That first flight to Cyprus, the excitement of speeding down the runaway and the little bump on landing are memories I still haven’t forgotten 20 years later.
Having now worked in the industry for almost 10 years I’ve been extremely fortunate to have visited some of the most desired destinations in the world. For me, I not only love planning my own perfect holiday but also get such pleasure planning other people’s dream getaway and passing on my own first-hand knowledge.
From the neon lights of Las Vegas to the gorgeous Lake Garda, there’s nothing I enjoy more than travelling the globe, I like to live up to my friends nickname for me – Dora the Explorer!
2 years ago a cruise had never crossed my mind, until an exciting invitation to visit the famous Anthem of the Seas came through. From the moment I stepped on-board I knew that this was going to be my new favourite way of travelling. Realising I could wake up and explore a different destination nearly every-day was a welcomed new experience and something I will continue to enjoy for as long as I can.
I’m very much a sun worshipper and love the golden beaches of the Caribbean, however I’m itching to try something different and Alaska is at the very top of my list! I’m planning on spending 7 nights on-board Holland Americas New Amsterdam, taking in the beauty of Glacier Bay and cruising the Inside Passage in search of the iconic wildlife in their natural environment.
From a young age exploring the world has always made me happy, from holidays in Spain as a child to exploring more exotic destinations as an adult the "Travel Bug" is something that I well and truly have and it's something that will never leave me.
For over 11 years I‘ve been lucky enough to be doing a job I love and along with this have had some of the most amazing life experiences. Laying under the stars in Yosemite National Park, experiencing European Cities with friends and spending lazy days on some of the most stunning beaches the Caribbean has to offer. 3 years ago I finally got the opportunity to experience a cruise, something I had never thought about doing in the past and now I look back and can't believe that I hadn’t done it earlier. There's something so special about being able to wake up in a different country or city each day, eating dinner in some of the most amazing restaurants and relaxing in beautiful spas on lazy sea days, a cruise ticks all the boxes for me.
So with the amazing travel experiences I’ve had so far I’m able to pass on my knowledge and share my love of travel to help you choose your next dream holiday wherever it may take you.
Bucket list trip
Having lived and worked in several different countries from the age of 18 I have always been drawn to travel and seeing behind the scenes of each destination I visit. I’ve been very fortunate to have visited some amazing destinations in my 10 years in the travel industry however there are so many more I look forward to exploring.
With each trip I book and plan for myself I always try to ensure I visit as many countries and cities as possible which is why I love to cruise. Waking up in a new city and embarking on a new adventure every day of my holiday without the stress and hassle of unpacking and repacking my suitcase is simply perfect for me. Knowing that each evening there is something different to keep me entertained on board whether it’s a show, a new restaurant, casino or a sing along piano bar, cruising for me really takes the stress out of travelling.
Ever since I was little watching animal documentaries on TV with my dad I have always wanted to visit the Galapagos Islands and see all the amazing wildlife the islands have to offer. I love the thought of taking a step back in time to the prehistoric era with Giant Tortoises and Iguanas roaming the volcanic islands. I believe there is no better way to visit these islands than on a cruise ship. Celebrity Xpedition being my ship of choice would enable me to see the beauty of these islands with some amazing excursions each day, along with being able to relax in on board luxury.
