“The whole of my adult working life I have worked in travel to ensure people who travelled from their home countries experienced the best holiday ever…”

It starts way back in 1986 in my early twenties. Basically the whole of my adult working life I have worked in travel to ensure people who travelled from their home countries experienced the best holiday ever each and every time they travelled afar! And that they were kept informed and safe and helped to make the utmost of their valuable holiday time….

My sole responsibility as a holiday representative for a couple of the UK’s biggest tour operators was to enhance clients’ stays whilst in destination and to ensure that they had a truly wonderful experience visiting a country of their dreams

For me it has been a wonderful life long working career spanning over 30 years – there have been highs and lows and lots of horror stories but lots of happy memories and friendships made along the way.  It really has been a wonderful experience for me and I have been blessed to have lived and worked and in some incredible countries with some amazing people and clients thankfully 30 years on and by the power of social media we are still in touch and I am still working in travel and still travelling myself and staying curious.
