Where I've Been


Favourite Holidays



Hawaii just for fun, shopping, sun, sand and as always the amazing american service Hawaii for a carefree , relaxed sunshine break.  Next year we return with our family for an in-depth look at the outer islands, to explore volcano's, hopefully see whales and see some of the dramatic coastlines Kauaii has to offer.

Canal Boating

One of our most enjoyable active holidays, it was incredible, a fabulous way to travel with children, to explore, enjoy the local culture and have no restraints of airports, car hire, a very leisurely way to travel and the kids loved it!

Europe Family Holiday

Italy , France holidaying with the family was a fabulous holiday, villas in France, Michelin restaurants, amazing markets, food and produce to inspire my love for cooking, so much to see in my two favourite countries. This year we focused on the Italian Lakes rather than the cities, and the eastern side of Provence.  France is our favourite holiday destination and we continue to return.  


Fiji is our second home, and we have explored every nook and cranny of Fiji from mainland hotel to family resorts and luxury couples resorts, we love so many things about Fiji and would love to share our experiences to help you make the perfect choice of holiday for just the 2 of you or a family break away


Awesome trip to Buenos Aires and Iguazu Falls this place is amazing, it is such a wonderful way to see nature at its most amazing, don't go to South America without seeing it ...beautiful

Europe River Cruising

I cruised from Amsterdam and Basel in 5 star luxury, to experience one of our most popular holiday options for a relaxing trip in Europe, contact me for tips and trips on how make the best choices on types of ships, the various companies and the different deals in the market, truly a relaxing and wonderful holiday to enjoy

New York

I have now been there a few times, and its a place for so much fun, the city that never sleeps bring lots of energy and enthusiasm to live NY like a local, the sights, the sounds , the experiences are to many to detail  but this will always be my go to destination for a special occasion trip with either my husband or girlfriends.


I have been so lucky to cruise on so many ships, some of these experiences have been the highlight of my career, across many destinations on every standard of ship there are so many options to consider and there is something for everyone, the key to cruising is finding the ship that is perfect for you, and there are so many things to consider, speak with myself or our team who are cruise experts and very up to date with all the ships and itinerary's on offer


Well this is my favourite "travelling" destinations in Asia, to explore from North to South, to take in all the different towns and cities as you go, and everyone will tell you the food will delight you it is amazing and as good as everyone tells you, but its key to plan well for Vietnam to make sure you don't miss any highlights or must do's a great destination on your own, with your partner or with your family


Crete was beautiful, such an easy , relaxed, interesting place to visit with some of the most beautiful beaches I have seen anywhere in this world...and the friendliest Europeans I have ever met....

Memphis and Southern USA

Growing up with my mother as the most avid Elvis fan meant it was only appropriate I should take her as a treat for a special (0) birthday!  Wow I was never sure if I would like it but it was so fascinating, to see a different side of the US, and to experience these parts of the states was fabulous, loved every minute and Graceland was incredible an iconic place to go and enjoy and re-live how it would have been when Elvis was in the building.

Australia - Gold Coast

FUN for families, a holiday I worried would just be 2 busy but by splitting it up with some time at the theme parks and some time in Noosa we got the perfect balance, of fun for all and relaxation for adults, we have explored this coastline from Byron Bay to Noosa in depth and its important to find the spot perfect for you, from basic to 5 star luxury it all exists you just need to know where to find it to ensure you have a holiday perfect for you


Disneyland...well its a must do holiday, the looks on our children's faces when they came face to face with FROZEN's Ana and Elsa will never leave me, the most fun filled holiday ever must do it with your family and I would love to share the tips and tricks on how to make your experience fun filled and stress free


I have had the luxury of 5 weeks in Malaysia and explored it from top to toe, and it was amazing, a little known destination for most Kiwis but it has SO much to offer, wildlife, beaches, shopping, beautiful hotels, amazing cuisine but all a lot less comercialised than some of its near neighbours, if you like a little less hustle and bustle give Malaysia a go

Shopping Trips

Another great love of mine is girls weekends/shopping trips, and I have taken more than my fair share.  I have a regular spot with friends to nip away and can help you plan some fabulous weekends to cover all things that we love in these weekends -  a great way to refresh and rejuvenate , include some shopping, some spa's some exercise and of course some fine food and perfect weekend 


A nice easy holiday....easy, safe and affordable, so many options of islands and locations but always amazing hotels , beautiful beaches and the food is always great, a good reliable resort holiday at anytime of the year
