TAANZ and House of Travel 

Where have we been lately?

This year Katrina returned to her favourite spot in Phuket, Twin Palms Resort. A quick trip to Perth, visiting the Margaret River region, also the Gold Coast & Fiji. Katrina has most recently got back from an amazing Uni World Boutique River cruise in France, and got to watch the All Blacks play in Paris!

Karen has travelled to Barcelona to be part of the launch of the Royal CaribbeanShip ‘Harmony of the Seas’, cruised from Lisbon to Southampton on Oceania and did a river cruise with Tauck from Amsterdam to Basel. She also visited Buenos Aires and had the opportunity to go to Iguazu Falls: "I have been to Niagara and Victoria Falls but this was the most impressive."

Has done a short trip to Sydney this year, and also visited Vietnam.

Started the year by celebrating an O birthday in Hawai'i, a relaxing 2 week break taking in Xmas and New Year. In April she added to her cruise experiences by cruising with Azamara, on the Spice Route from Singapore to Bombay. The Azamara Journey was a small ship holding just 684 passengers plus crew.  
August saw a trip to Vietnam  (2nd visit) it just really reiterated what an incredible country this is, from spa treatments to the fabulous tailors, sightseeing and more shopping.

Started the year with a short tour of Sri Lanka, including coastal areas and tea plantations.  In December last year she took her boys on a Royal Caribbean Cruise of the South Pacific from Brisbane.  In March this year she did a Silversea’s cruise of the Western Caribbean from Bridgetown to Fort Lauderdale. Most recently she has just returned from a four night getaway to Hawai'i.
