World Traveler with 40 years of experience
Cruising the mighty Mekong
I am the ultimate globetrotter, having traveled all the way around the world nearly four times !
My love of exploration began over forty years ago, when I spent a full 8 months wandering through Europe. I visited a variety of gorgeous countries during this time starting in Portugal, travelling east to Greece, Israel and roaming back to the United Kingdom.
Next adventure was a 2 year working holiday in the South Pacific. During this memorable time, I served as a waitress, bartender, pineapple canner and even a sheep shearer in New Zealand. I eventually found myself working with Sitmar Cruises, exploring Australia, China and everywhere in between.
Although I enjoyed working abroad, I eventually realized that my unique experiences would make me the perfect resource for those eager to plan their own travel adventures. I now work in Cochrane, Alberta (near Calgary) where I encourage other Canadians to embrace the "travel bug".
I may be based in Canada but I certainly have not abandoned my love of travel. My many expeditions have included:
- marveling at the sights and sounds of the jungle
- observing wildlife in Kenya and Tanzania
- hiking in Nepal
- cruising the Mighty Mississippi aboard a paddle wheeler to sailing down the Mekong river on a junk
- cruising around the world on ships, boats and freighters
Space travel is pretty well all that is left for me !
My work with vacationers is every bit as varied as my travel portfolio as I want to give my clients the same amazing experiences.
I do everything I can to ensure that my clients enjoy every moment of their dream vacation. Depending on the individual, this may mean arranging the use of private boats and planes, to finding printer ink for business clients abroad on New Years eve. Have even help set up apartments for those seeking long-term treatments at the acclaimed Mayo Clinic.
No matter the nature of my clients' concerns or needs, I work tirelessly to find a solution.
I spend a great deal of my time consulting with clients and immersed in unique cultures, but I also believe in the power of continued education. I am currently certified as a Barbados Elite and AMA Waterways, Sandals specialist. I have taken a variety of Travel University courses and continue to research various cruises, all-inclusive resorts and escorted tours whenever I have a bit of spare time.
