Where I've Been


Favourite Holidays


Cruise Specialist

I have experienced several modes of travel including cruising, group tours & independent, but my passion lies in cruising - I have personally cruised with P&O, Princess, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Holland America, Royal Caribbean, Carnival and Viking River Cruises and have inspected P&O World, Dream Cruises and Celebrity Cruises.

Destinations I have cruised to are the Pacific Islands, Eastern Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Asia, Norway, the Baltics and the Rhine River from Amsterdam to Basel.

I also have experience booking many many more cruise lines around the world!

Egypt and Jordan

My favourite holiday experience was ticking Egypt off my bucket list in 2018. My husband and I went on the 15 Day Road to Jordan with On the Go tours.

We had plenty of unique and incredible experiences on this dream trip and got to experience all the highlights such as the legendary Pyramids of Giza, Necropolis of Saqqara and the Egyptian Musuem in Cairo before heading down to Aswan on an overnight sleeper train (which was an experience in itself!)
From Aswan we visited Temples of Philae, dedicated to the goddess Isis, the souks (where we got caught in a sand storm) and Abu Simbel - the famous rock-cut temple of King Ramses II and Queen Nefertari and then enjoyed 3 nights on a 5* Luxury Nile Cruise to Luxor stopping along the way at Kom Ombo.
In Luxor (Ancient city of Thebes) we explored the Valley of the Kings and saw the Colossi of Memnon, Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, Karnak Temple and the Temple of Luxor.
After all the temples and history we had some free time at the Red Sea before heading to Jordan.
In Jordan we enjoyed 2 days at the Rose City of Petra, a night out at the desert camp Wadi Rum where we saw the most beautiful sunset and then finally finished our trip at the Dead Sea where we spent the time bobbing in its mineral-rich buoyant waters and lathering up with a detoxifying mud bath before flying home from Amman.
