World Travellers

I'm a travel expert in ...

Organised group tours are my speciality.

I worked as a Tour Leader in Europe for 5 years so it’s fair to say that I’m an expert in Europe. I also spent 5 months working in Latin America doing a variety of positions with the same company, including a bit of Tour Leading/Escorting, Product Development and Quality Control. I have touched down on every Continent (except Antarctica) and done a lot of solo travel.

I became a World Traveller by ...

At the age of 22 I embarked on my UK OE, 2 year working holiday visa firmly stamped in my passport with big dreams of working as a nanny or launching my TV presenting career. I accidently found myself landing a Tour Leading job with Contiki Holidays, I say accidently because I genuinely never planned on a career in travel, I was just in the right place at the right time. But, I got stung by the travel bug and I’ve never looked back.

My best travelling experience so far ...

It’s difficult to narrow it down to one but I used to love watching the reactions on the faces of my clients faces when they first laid their eyes upon a monument like the Colosseum or the Eiffel Tower…it’s a wonderful thing to be a part of.

One of my fondest memories was traveling with friends in Egypt; from having sun-downers on rooftop bars or the Winter Palace that sits on the River Nile, to snorkeling in the Gulf of Aqaba into the Blue Hole. The sea-life is some of the most spectacular I’ve ever seen in my life and the added bonus of seeing the phenomenal Blue Hole.

I never travel without...

A keepsake from my Mum.

Stuff you might not know about me...

I've done a lot of solo travel around the world..

I'm a keen hiker, although not a fast one but you'll often fine me huffing and puffing up the stairs of the Hakarimata's on my weekends.

I enjoy Hot Air Ballooning, although I spend most of my time on the ground as a crew member, rather than in the air.

I've traveled the length and breadth of Aotearoa.
