My favourite travel memory

A very recent memory in fact, it was seeing a Polar Bear in the wild for the very first time on my birthday 8th June 2023! What a birthday gift to see this magnificent wild animal in Arctic Svalbard – just amazing!

My favourite destination to visit is:

Mauritius – I actually got married there and I can thoroughly recommend it as a destination for a wedding and honeymoon. We have been twice now and have some wonderful memories.  Beautiful hotels, beaches, people and scenery.

My favourite ship/train/tour is:

I’ve been lucky enough to see and sail on a few luxury ships, but one of my favourites is The Greg Mortimer Expedition Ship, with Aurora Expeditions.  It is something so totally different from mainstream cruising, but still retains the luxury of beautiful cabins and wonderful dining.

My travel bucket list contains:

South America, Japan and Croatia.

My expertise include:

Tailor-Made Holidays and Cruise itineraries.

Destinations I have visited:

Austria, Abu Dhabi, Barbados, Belgium, Canada, Caribbean Islands, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Madagascar, Mauritius, Montenegro, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Portugal, Reunion Islands, Seychelles, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and United States. Plus more that I can’t quite remember …..

I started work in travel in:

June 1981 – so over 40 years ago. And many happy years I’ve enjoyed too … I’ve been with Fred Olsen since 2005 so over 18 years now.
