Upon graduating from college, I moved to Japan where I lived/worked as an English teacher for nearly six years. This experience began my love affair with Asia. Upon returning to Canada, I began my career at Goway Travel and am now a Senior Asia Specialist with over five years of experience customising unforgettable tailor-made holidays for the valued clients of my travel agent partners! I have been very fortunate with my travels throughout Asia, which over the years have taken me to Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam! My favourite travel memory would surely be standing in awe at the magnificent Taj Mahal in Agra, India. Asia is my passion and I cannot wait to share that passion with you and your clients and work closely on creating amazing trips that they’ll never forget!
My favourite places
With 7,107 islands and islets, the Philippines is a destination not to be missed. Offering some of the best beaches in Asia, unique cultural experiences, unparalleled shopping and the friendliest people, the Philippines is a great place to explore and get a taste of authentic Asia!
China - the largest country in Asia is full of wonder and experiences to make any trip unforgettable! You could easily travel to China multiple times and have a completely different experience each time. Sitting on the Great Wall of China and view the spectacular scenery and take in the history is something I'll never forget.
There is simply no place quite like India! It is best enjoyed as a stand-alone travel destination and is truly the land of contrasts in weather, culture, food and history. Although it may seem like a daunting destination to travel to, push yourself out of your comfort zone and give it a chance - you'll be so glad you did!
This small, land-locked country in Asia is known throughout the world as being the home of awe-inspiring Mt. Everest (as well as 7 of the other highest peaks on the planet)! Full of diverse culture, history, culinary delights and some of the most hospitable people in Asia, Nepal should certainly be added to any globetrotter’s travel bucket list!
