Where I've Been

 

Favourite Holidays

 

Europe River Cruise & France July 2014

A River Cruise is a must and tickets all the boxes for travel in  Europe. Its relaxed but busy !  The  south of France just touched my heart and I would be back there in an eye blink !

Cheetah experience

One of the most thrilling and memorable experiences I've ever had is the hour I went walking in the wild with Sylvester the Cheetah . Unforgettable !

Cesky Krumlov

Cesky Krumlov. I love the name, it just rolls off the  tongue ! Better still it is a gorgeous town is the Czech Republic

Turkey September 2013

My husband and I were lucky enough to be offered  the use of a friends yacht in Turkey. Taking this opportunity to go back to a place that  just tickets all the boxes, Turkey is just magical.  Istanbul is one of those must see cities. 

South Africa & Botswana -Nov 2013

The Okavango Delta  is such a stunning part of the world.   With new camps to visit and at a totally different part of the  year, it was such a joy to be back. Alas I have some new favourite camps in Botswana.  Vic Falls and Kruger added to the delight of being back in this amazing part of the world.

Botswana - May, 2012

Africa being a passion of mine, this trip was a great opportunity to visit and stay in many Wilderness luxury camps throughout the Okavango Delta, Linyanti and Savuti areas. 

This adventure just reinforced my knowledge as a  consultant specialising in Africa travel.

Kenya and Tanzania - May, 2011

Having been to Kenya and Tanzania several times previously travelling by road, I saw another side of this part of the world from the air when flying between camps and seeing different camps as well. I was certainly tearful when I left this special part of the world.Having been to Kenya and Tanzania several times previously travelling by road, I saw another side of this part of the world from the air when flying between camps and seeing different camps as well. I was certainly tearful when I left this special part of the world.

Arctic - July, 2010

Having travelled  to Antarctica previously, it was time to get close to the north pole. I love being on ships and also doing some kayaking in the area. The polar bear, bird life and history around Svalbard is incredible.Having travelled  to Antarctica previously, it was time to get close to the north pole.
