What interests you about travel?
My experience of my own personal travel, my photos and stories help clients and myself come to a itinerary that works for their age, capabilities and budget. I love looking after the needs of clients, so that they become friends.

What is your favourite destination?
London, for the history,  Monarchy,  ease of moving around, beautiful countryside  and  city parks, galleries, cathedrals and amazing options close at hand.

Antibes – Historic village on the coast in the Sth France, living like a local and using local beach but with all the glam of the Cote De’Azur at your doorstep.

I have travelled to….
Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, United Kingdom, as well as most of Europe and Eastern Europe – all ways including Cruising, River Cruising, Coach , Private boat charter and  barging.

Most of South America including Machu Picchu,  Iguassu Falls, Lima , Ushuaia and the Falkland Islands as well as cruising through the Magellan straight and  around Cape Horn.

Cruising to East Timor, Papua New Guinea, Melville Islands and all the coast of Australia and New Zealand.

Favourite travel tip?
Do it while you can –  and make sure you have a holiday not just a trip.

What’s your dream destination?
World Cruise – the reason being that for me cruising is the greatest way to have a holiday  which  includes  many destinations at a easy pace (I am know as a lazy traveller)  make sure the ports included are interesting and the ship and cabin  suites your personal style.
