AUSTRALIA & SOUTH PACIFIC
Whether you are searching for a five-star itinerary, a bucket list trip, an escorted group tour, a cruise or adventure travel, I can help you plan a truly memorable vacation. My travels around Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Tahiti, and the Cook Islands have allowed me to sample unique cuisine, learn about new cultures, meet unique locals and make lifelong friends. The scenery both above and below ground are just awe inspiring. I have been on two Around-the-World trips and have been fortunate enough to have visited the South Pacific area eighteen times. I have been In the travel industry for over 20 years and as a retail travel agent for the past 15 years selling the whole world. Thanks to my continual training, a wide selection of products and my love of travel, I can put the pieces together to create the perfect holiday.
My favourite places
Australia & South Pacific
I love everything about Australia. There is something for everyone to do from exploring stunning beaches, unique wildlife, the indigenous culture, quirky locals and incredible natural scenery both above land and under water the land Downunder really has everything and more for you to experience.
Trekking through mountain passes and awe inspring valleys of the Annapurna Circuit for 18 days is a trip I will never forget. Waking up in our tent at the Tibetan base of Mount Everest with views of Chomolungma(Mother of the World) is also one of my all-time travel highlights.
When you go to the Cook Islands a visit to the Island of Aitutaki is a must. It is a short flight from Raratonga arriving on an island with one of the most stunning lagoons in the world. Stop at One Foot Island for a unique stamp or rent a bicycle and spend the day exploring the island and meeting the locals.
South Islands, New Zealand
Australia & South Pacific
There is so much to do on New Zealand's South Island. I recommend booking early to not miss out. Highlights are heli hiking on Franz Joseph Glacier, an overnight cruise in Fiordland National Park, the scenic Tranzalpine train and coastal exploring in Able Tasman National Park.
