With 24 years experience in the travel industry, I have enjoyed wonderful destinations and experiences around the globe. Highlights include Canada, USA, UK, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Singapore and Thailand. I have experience a variety of cruises, P & O Cruises (Queensland), Star Cruises (Asia), Norwegian Cruise Line (Mexican Riviera), Celebrity Cruises (Pacific Islands) and Holland America (Alaska).
Most recent travel experiences:
June/July 2017 – My travels took me to UK & Ireland which included a London city stay and self-drive tour of South Eastern England followed by Insight Vacations Tour ‘Country Roads of Ireland’. London is the most wonderful city to explore especially in the summer months enjoying the history and abundant green parks in warm sunny weather and English strawberries! I thoroughly recommend a trip to Ireland – touring the country roads with Insight Vacations provided a relaxing and informative way enjoy the history and scenery of Ireland along with a group of like minded travellers.
May 2018 - I had the most fortunate experience of escorting a local South Coast group to Canada with Scenic. I can highly recommend Canada as a destination everyone should visit and May is an excellent time to visit the Rockies with abundant wildlife and snow-capped mountains. Everywhere you look is a photo opportunity. Following the coach tour of stunning Canada we then embarked on Holland America Cruise of Alaska’s Inside Passage.
Highlights of this cruise were a shore excursion tour from Skagway on the White Pass Railway crossing the border back into Canada and joining a coach tour through the Yukon Territory and another border crossing back to Alaska. Glacier Bay was almost an overwhelming experience, the ship slowly and silently rotates in this pristine wilderness and passengers stare in awe at the majestic glaciers as we drift past. Canada & Alaska - destinations to be added to everyone’s bucket list!
As the oldest of the team, where do I start? The start of my journey was living in Bali for three months in 1972 and then backpacking around the world...so much fun and the start of meeting life-long friends.
Since working in travel I have visited to so many amazing destinations. Some of my highlights include a safari in Africa, savouring the countryside of Italy and walking Cinque Terre. I’ve stood on glaciers in Canada, explored the waterfalls and mountains on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai and lived the life in New York. I’ve visited Angkor Wat in Cambodia and climbed Sigiriya Rock in Sri Lanka.
Further highlight experiences include a sunset from a temple in Bagan in Myanmar and staying on Inle Lake making our way around in motorised dug-out canoes.
Europe travels have included a Mediterranean cruise visiting the ports of Santorini, Mykonos and Barcelona.
My most recent trip to Peru was spectacular where I visited Sacred Valley, Machu Pichu and Cuzco.
I love encouraging my clients to try the things I have enjoyed and get much pleasure hearing that they have enjoyed them as well.
I have been in the travel industry for over 6 years now. Since being with Ulladulla Travel I have been fortunate enough to experience a Coach tour around the scenic South Island of New Zealand, travelled through nine different & unique European Countries. Last year my travels took me to Vancouver followed by a Top deck Tour through the National parks of Western USA – which was picture perfect.
I have experienced many different Asian Cultures with both touring & leisure travel through Cambodia, China, Thailand & Singapore and the beautiful South Pacific Islands by land & also cruise.
Two years ago spent a month 4WD’ing in a rooftop tent & drove all the way up to the most northern point in Australia – Cape York, where at the tip I experienced an adrenaline rushing helicopter ride.
In May 2018 - I had the most wonderful opportunity to travel to South America & Galapagos Islands. The amazing wildlife that I was able to see, swim with & photograph was mind blowing.
Future travel plans: I would love to visit Africa & Antarctica so that I have visited all 7 continents of the world, but firstly I would love to travel around Australia with an indefinite time limit!
I have had the pleasure in working at Ulladulla travel for over 4 years now; in this time I have experienced some beautiful holidays of my own and also work educational travel experiences.
Australia’s Top End – included a stay in Darwin and tour through the beautiful Katherine Gorge. Swimming in pristine water holes (not the ones with crocodiles!) was a real highlight.
New Zealand – Highlights included cruising Milford Sound and enjoying the nightlife of Queenstown whilst travelling around the South Island of New Zealand by motorhome.
Vanuatu – I snorkelled some of the clearest blue waters I’ve ever experienced during my visit to Vanuatu.
Next travel will be Bali .....
There is nothing I enjoy more than planning and tailor-making each and every one of my client’s holidays to meet their every travel wish a reality.
I have enjoyed being a part of Ulladulla Travel for over seven years, since returning to work after raising children. I have worked in many facets of travel over the last 30 years and enjoyed many travel experiences in Australian and international destinations. My favourite destinations include the adventurous Kimberley and Western Australia, the historical wonders of Turkey (especially Galipolli) and Europe. Other highlights include the culture and shopping of Bali and the vivid sights of Vietnam. I enjoy helping people with their travel plans, and in the future I hope to revisit Vietnam and experience a luxury European river cruise.
