Where have we been
in the past 12 months?

Lorraine would love to share her recent travels, visiting Memphis, Nashville, Atlanta and Hawaii and also cruising with Azamara from Singapore to Bombay.

Bronwyn I have been to the Naturally Beautiful  Samoa and Picturesque South West England

Nicky has just returned from a fabulous All Inclusive  Silversea Cruise in the Caribbean,  and late last year was lucky enough to visit Sri Lanka,  if either of these destinations are on your horizon give Nicky a call

Morgan in the last 12 months I have been lucky enough to experience Chile! Santiago is not one of the prettiest cities I have been too that is for sure - It is like a mix between utilitarian, old, new and falling apart. It is a bit like a treasure hunt to find the beauty within the ugly. But the landscape of the city is not what draws you to a place like Santiago. It’s the Food, Wine and Atmosphere. This city is a foodies dream!

Katrina has just returned from a canal cruise from Amsterdam to Basel and last year did an Ocean Cruise taking in Spain & Portugal so if this is on your bucket list and you want to plan just one of these destinations, or all of them, please contact Katrina. One of her favourite destinations is Thailand.

Karen celebrated her wedding anniversary in Italy with Backroads Tours with some free time in Rome and Santorini.  Backroads Tours were just fabulous - travelling in small Mercedes coaches, staying in boutique hotels and enjoying some wonderful local food, wine and experiences.   

Fancy yourself discovering quaint villages in the UK? Jan has spent some time doing just that, renting a car and travelling the back roads of England. She also did a Trafalgar Tour of Central Europe in 2016 going to Berlin, Warswaw, Krokow, Vienna, Prague and Budapest.

Emma I’ve been to Western Australia, specifically Perth, Freemantle & Margaret River and enjoyed taking selfies with cute Quokkas on Rottnest Island! & a 10 day Intrepid tour of Vietnam, starting in the far north of Hanoi, stopping in Halong Bay, Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh.

 

Toni I’ve been to Hawaii, Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles with my family we had the best time

Shopped till we dropped – loved it. Singapore was another highlight, visited Sentosa Island, great day trip. Recent NZ highlight was cycling the Otago Rail Trail with family & friends – beautiful NZ.

Maggie Most recently I have visited the amazing Galapagos Islands, New York, Hawaii, South America and cruised through the Panama Canal

Tali Hong Kong I visited Kowloon, HKG Island, New Territories and Lantau Island to see Big Buddha and got to experience a Big Bus tours, Foodie Tours, Fishing villages & Ocean Park.

Sunshine Coast: visited Australia Zoo, Aussie World, Sealife Mooloolaba, drove to Rainbow Beach, stayed at the Glass House Mountains. Honolulu : Maui and Waikiki.  I really enjoyed the Grand Circle Island Tour, Kualoa Ranch, World Famous Hanauma Bay, Spouting Blow Hole & the Famous Dole Plantation
