In 2016 I was very lucky to travel to Alaska, a truly incredible place I never thought I would get to visit. Whilst in Alaska, I travelled on the very special Alaskan Railroad train, which travels from the coastal town of Seward, right up through the stunning mountains to Fairbanks, calling at the must-see towns of Talkeetna and Denali along the way. One of my most special memories of the trip was kayaking on a magnificent giant lake, surrounded by jaw-dropping mountains, as moose casually walked on by. I also got to do a husky dog sleigh ride, whist visiting a dogs home where they raised and trained dogs for the annual prestigious Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. A fantastic helicopter ride around the highest mountain in North America, Denali and a boat trip along the Yukon River, whilst bear spotting, made for a spectacular Alaskan adventure.
I started working within the travel industry as an apprentice when I left school in 1997, travel was something I always wanted to be involved in from an early age. Since 2009 I have mainly worked on rail/land based holiday itineraries as a tailor-made holiday specialist, including trips travelling around the world staying in multiple continents. These land/rail based holidays have also expanded into including ocean or river cruises.
I have travelled extensively to the United States and Canada, including visits to Alaska and the Deep South. Whilst in North America, I have travelled on the Amtrak rail network, the Grand Alaskan Railroad and the Rocky Mountaineer – one of the most scenic journeys in the world! As well as travelling extensively throughout Europe, I have also had some fantastic trips to China and India.
