I’m a travel expert in…

Sports and Special Interests Tours, NRL, Hong Kong 7s, Bledisloe Cup, Wedding Planner in the South Pacific, USA, Canada, Thailand, Hawaii (lived on Maui), South Africa, Argentina, Asia, Caribbean and Cruising.

 

I became a World Traveller by…

Initially wanting to end up living in Hawaii, therefore joined the airline industry.  I loved travelling to various countries and after a few years of airline work, decided to make a career out of helping other people achieve their goals and dreams by being a Consultant myself.

 

... My best travelling experience is…

Organising my own tour group to follow the All Blacks in 1995 and 1996.  On tour for 36 days with 96 keen rugby supporters was an experience I will always remember.  South Africa is an amazing country and to see South Africa whilst combining the All Blacks and Springboks, was very memorable and emotional.

 

I never travel without…

Music, a good book, sunscreen and insect repellent!

 

My favourite client story is…

...Booking a young guy booked on a plane with a few hours notice to be in Spain to see his critically ill Dad. Arrange a passport, ask Emirates to clear a seat, and hold the gate open at the airport until we both ran into the terminal with a new passport and ticket, last person on the plane.  This young guy got to Spain, up to the hospital and had an hour with his Dad before he passed. With the help of Internal Affairs and Emirates, he made it!
