AUSTRALIA & SOUTH PACIFIC
My love of travel started as a child with vacations spent travelling around Australia. From swimming with wild dolphins to flying over the Kimberlies and climbing Ayers Rock, I truly was blessed to experience some of Australia's most unique destinations. At 17, I spread my wings and travelled to Germany for my first overseas vacation. Upon my return I enrolled in Travel School and became a fully qualified Travel Agent. That was over 20 years ago and I have been helping people turn their dream vacations into realities ever since. I love creating unique itineraries and giving clients a vacation that they will remember for the rest of their days. There is nothing better than the feeling of knowing you have made someone's dream come true. Since moving to the US in 2015, I have specialized in sending people to my homeland of Australia.
My favourite places
Rotorua, New Zealand
Australia & South Pacific
Rotorua is a must-see on New Zealand's North Island. From the geothermal mud pools to the Maori culture, mountain biking, and adrenaline sports, it has it all. It is also a great gateway to Hobbiton, which is simply amazing and a must-see for any Lord of the Rings and Hobbit fans.
Australia & South Pacific
Adelaide is a quintessential Australian city. It's also the gateway to some amazing experiences, including wineries in the Barossa Valley, wildlife on Kangaroo Island, cage diving with Great White Sharks off the southern coast, and venturing into the Outback. Adelaide has it all.
I fell in love with Ireland on my last vacation. It has a lot to recommend: the rolling hills of green, the friendly people, the great little pubs, and so much history and spectaular scenery. Ireland is a great destination for a self-drive, where you can immerse yourself in the local culture and mix with locals.
Rome truly is the eternal city. I was captivated by this city from the first moment I saw the Colosseum on my visit over 10 years ago. It is an amazing city to walk around in, with so much to see. Buy your Vatican tour in advance. Don't forget to try some gelato and throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain.
Did you know?
- In Australia and New Zealand, people drive on the left side of the road, which makes driving interesting.
- The Melbourne Cup is always held on the first Tuesday in November. It is the horse race that stops the nation
- Spring and Fall are great times to travel as you miss the crowds, the weather is nice, and prices are great.
- Pack light. After initial packing, remove half of what you have in there so you have space for souvenirs.
