Where I've Been


Favourite Holidays



I am an avid traveller and have travelled extensively over the years – visiting Australia, South Pacific (Fiji, Rarotonga and Tahiti), North America, Canada, Europe, Great Britain, Scandinavia, Russia, Egypt, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Hawaii (more times than I can count!), and Malaysia to name but a few and I have now passed my love of travel over to my children (now 21 and 19); so the cycle is starting all over again.  Travelling with my girls has bought a completely new slant to everything: the way you look at the culture, place and people you meet – just wonderful and incredibly humbling.  It makes my job so much more fulfilling. Recent highlights in November 2017: a Uniworld Cruise – “Bordeaux, Vineyards & Chateaux”, watching the All Blacks play in Paris, a P&O 3 night Cruise on the Pacific Jewel from Auckland in May 2018 and in June 2018: 10 nights in Honolulu, staying at the Laylow Waikiki, visiting Pearl Harbour, shopping at Ala Moana, fabulous food experiences and swimming at Waikiki Beach – a wonderful holiday with my girls! There is still a lot to experience, places and countries to visit. Next on my list is Greece, India and Sri Lanka and no doubt another trip to Honolulu.  And since then, trips down to Dunedin (the jewel of the South!)  to visit my girls who are both  studying at Otago University. I’ve come to the conclusion that age is just a number!
