I absolutely love travel and traveling, and hearing about other people’s travel adventures, so I invite you to come in and together we can plan your next holiday. I will work hard to provide you with options and suggestions for your dream destination so you can have the best holiday possible.
My travel destinations so far include:
- Coach Tour of Italy with Globus Tours where stops included Rome, Cinque Terre, Florence, Siena, Verona, Venice, Assisi, Pisa, and Lucca.
- Self-guided visit back to Rome which included a 20kmEbike tour down the Appian Way.
- Guided visits to Pompeii, the ancient Roman Port of Ostia Antica, Capri and the famous Blue Grotto.
- Australia, including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Perth, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. Swam with the turtles on the Great Barrier Reef, walked in the Daintree Forest and kayaked down a river in Cairns, travelled down the Great Ocean Road. Attended an NRL Grand Final and many live shows in Melbourne.
- Extensive New Zealand touring, including Bungee jumps off the Kawerau Bridge and Auckland Harbour Bridge. Helicopter flights from Queenstown to Mt Larkins and from Wanaka over Mt Aspiring. I love NZ, but I do have a soft spot for the Queenstown/Wanaka and general Central Otago areas.
- Coach Tour of France with Insight Vacations where we visited Paris, including the Palace of Versailles and Monet’s Garden, Dijon, and Chamonix from where we caught the cable car up 3842m to the Aiguille du Midi - here it felt like we were in a James Bond movie, just waiting for Pierce Brosnan or Sean Connery to jump out. The South of France (Avignon, Nimes, Eze, St Paul-du-Vence, Les Baux, Carcassone, Rocamadour, Sarlat, Lascaux II cave, etc), is a stunning destination with such beautiful towns and very friendly people. Most exciting of all for me was standing on the top of Pont du Gard.
- Self-guided tour of Sicily, including Palermo, Taormina and Agrigento. One of my favourite memories is sitting having dinner at Villa Athena gazing directly at the Temple of Concord.
- Monaco, Singapore - including Gardens by the Bay; Fiji, Hawaii – including a visit to the Arizona Memorial; and Norfolk Island.
- Next stop Croatia! (With a small side trip to Vienna.)
