Planning a memorable holiday is an exciting experience, I consider myself privileged to be part of the process with so many people.
Ranee has recently been to Oman, her best adventure was an overnight in Wahibi Sands Desert where she got to go dune bashing in a 4WD!
Billy really enjoyed Ankor Wat in Cambodia: great people, history and the unexplored feel of the jungle.
Jo recently spent time in Paris, loved wandering through the streets and gardens, eating macaroons and the great views from the top of the Arch de Triomphe. Watching the traffic going around the roundabout below is very entertaining!
Pia‘s latest adventure was the Sunshine Coast Australia. An action packed 5 days included a visit to Australia Zoo, kayaking, swimming with the seals at Underwater World and a day trip to Fraser Island.
Tony has recently escorted a tour to South Africa where his group went to the All Black game at Ellis Park Johannesburg, checked out the wildlife at Kruger National Park, and travelled down the country to Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. The wildlife was incredible, but another real highlight was the cablecar ride up Table Mountain in Cape Town, the ride up is amazing and the views from the top are simply stunning.
Christine has just been to San Francisco and Las Vegas. Her highlights in San Fran were biking across the Golden Gate Bridge and a Champagne Harbour Cruise of the Bay. The Cirque du Soleil Show at the Bellagio Hotel in Vegas was amazing, the outlet malls were fantastic for shopping, and if your young or young at heart,check out the pool party at the MGM’s ‘Wet Republic Pool’, awesome!
Nicole has not long returned from doing a 19 day Topdeck European Winter Getaway. Heaps of highlights along the way, but eating pork knuckles and drinking steins at the Hofbrauhaus in Berlin, and the awesome fairy-tale gothic castles all over Prague were truly memorable.
Nick has been to Singapore, which he loved. Exploring the street markets in Chinatown and tasting the local delicacies was great fun, and his biggest surprise was the Gardens by the Bay, which has the world’s largest man-made waterfall and breath-taking views from the skyline walkway. It’s a must-see attraction in Singapore even if you’re not a gardener at heart.
Teresa has recently been to Japan where Kyoto was a favourite with the little tea houses and laneways being exactly how you imagine Japan to be. She was even lucky enough to see a real life geisha. Getting out of Tokyo and into the countryside was a surprise, the landscape was comparable to Switzerland and even NZ. The Japanese people were extremely polite and courteous people, and travelling in their country is very pleasant experience.
She was also recently in Bali where she enjoyed a 35km mountain bike starting at Mt Batur through orange orchards and little villages, finishing amongst the rice terraces of Ubud. Teresa loves the food in Bali, with the hardest part being deciding between Nasi Goreng or Mei Goring… rice or noodles…
