My Favourite Holiday

I have many favourite holiday experiences and every destination are different however a Seabourn Cruise around the Mediterranean was really amazing and probably one of my favourite trips along with a recent Uniworld River Cruise of Burgundy and Provence.

My Holiday tips

  • Take a Cash Passport (pre-paid money card) along with some cash and your credit card as a back up

  • Pack light and don’t take too much hand luggage

Tours Manager

I have over 25 years in the aviation industry, as a commercial pilot, Communications Manager with Boeing Australia and Airservices Australia, Manager Aviation Relations.

My focus as Tours Manager is to provide exciting specialised tours for small groups around the world. Aviation has always been a passion so we have produced a couple of exciting tours for 2018.

My Favourite Holiday

The Amalfi Coast in Italy especially Positano, for me incredibly picturesque, there really is no way you could go to Positano and not enjoy yourself. Ravello, located a short drive up the hill from Amalfi and offering sweeping views of the coast. This town was a hidden gem!

My Holiday tips
  • Book travel in advance, early bird fares offer fantastic savings.
  • Arrival early at the airport, helps to reduce last minute stress.
  • Make sure your Passport is current (more than 6 months before it expires).
  • Choose the right Travel Insurance, many do not offer the level of insurance required.
  • If something goes wrong while travelling it nice to know your travel consultant is there to help.
