In 1977 I was bitten by the travel bug. I never tire of talking or listening to people talk of their adventures, holidays, journeys and experiences. ' Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport'

My love for travelling has taken me to every continent whether by sea or by land.
My particular interest in cruising has allowed me some 25 cruises.
From Alaska to Antarctica and many in between I look forward to sharing my passion with you.
I always had a passion for travel so after completing my qualifications in 2005 I joined House of Travel. I specialise in Business & Group Travel and also LOVE creating dream holidays for for all of my clients.
Travelling has always been my first love. Whether it's Europe or the South Island, creating itineraries for my clients is a great way to spend my day. I look forward to helping you out with your next adventure.
