About Me

I have been in the Travel Industry for over 20 years, working on the high street for some well know companies, in business travel assisting companies with worldwide travel arrangements, as well as teaching evening students at college all about travel and tourism.

I have always had a passion for travel and exploring the globe, especially cruising.

Travel 2

Cruising is my personal choice for travel I think it started with this 1st experience …………

1st Boat

I have travelled extensively from a young age and continue to do so, exploring the world by plane, train, automobile and cruise ship !

Now I prefer to do my travel by cruise, letting someone else do all the hard work, waking up somewhere different every day, exploring cities, beaches and the wonders of the world with the bonus of retreating back on board for that all-important sail away cocktail !

Cocktail Time

I have travelled the length and breadth of Europe many times, experiencing such delights as the Northern lights, buzzing cities to quiet idyllic villages unchanged for decades. I also lived in Spain for 7 years, loving the mediterranean way of life.

I have explored the many and varied Caribbean Islands, the USA from the southernmost point of continental America to many of the city destinations, from Miami to New York.

I have cruised many of the world’s beautiful oceans and rivers from the Great Barrier Reef to the stunning Nile.

I have also enjoyed the hospitality of the people in the Far East and Australia and the amazing sights of such different countries’.

And still so much more to do !
