I'm a travel expert in ...
... Fiji, Australia, Hawaii, Tahiti & Cruising

I became a World Traveller by ...
... Specialising in tailored made group tours for people who want to experience a different culture, or who want to retrace family history or travel as a group to or for a special occasion, eg Significant birthdays, weddings, engagements, or just travelling as a group with people who think the same and like to enjoy the same sorts of holidays like a cruise. Groups I have worked with to ensure that they enjoy a fantastic trip include, school groups, family groups, groups who want to trace the footsteps of family who may have served in the World Wars. Nothing is too big or too small.

My best travelling experience is ...
... Immersing myself in the local cultures. Meeting the locals in their own environment and finding out about them away from the normal tourist spots, eating their foods, sampling their local beverages. I will never forget meeting an Italian family in Florence and eating antipasto and sampling their red wine with them.

My favourite client's story is ...
... How I helped a school to research the footsteps of their grandfathers and great-grandfathers who fought in the 2nd World War and then designed a holiday in Greece and Italy around that research. Most of this group had never been out of NZ before and some may never travel that far again.
Another memory I have is helping clients who were stuck in Western Europe because of volcanic ash. Others were there for a week or more whilst all my clients were home withing 3 or 4 days.
