With 20 years of experience in travel, my passion for new destinations has taken me to 54 countries so far, including many tailor-made trips to Asia, Africa, the Indian Ocean, the Middle East, and Oceania. I love passing on what I have learnt from my personal experiences to help create unforgettable holidays of a lifetime.
I have a real sense of adventure that has led to diverse experiences, from visiting hill tribe villages in Thailand to bungee jumping in New Zealand; I truly believe that travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer. Apart from helping others plan their trips, I also have a young family who I take all over the world with me as often as I can.

My favourite holidays…
My favourite experiences…
Favourite food from a destination I love
Pad Thai – Best served from the street stalls in Thailand with rice noodles, vegetables, and either prawns, beef or chicken I could eat it every day.
Favourite wildlife encounter
Elephant Hills jungle lake safari. Was the best experience I have had with elephants in Thailand and the 2nd night on the lake the scenery was stunning.
Favourite culture trip
Visiting the hill tribe villages in Chiang Mai. Learning about The Karen long neck tribe in Padaung Village and why they have such long necks!
I'll always remember when…
Thailand is a country that is close to my heart and witnessing the unique longneck hill Tribes near the Chiang Mai province is a memory that will stay with me for a long time. There are travel companies out there that prioritise the welfare of hill tribes at the heart of the experience. Witnessing the traditional mountain dwellers with the brass rings around their necks, handwoven tunics and colourful embroidery was a unique experience and I have visited Thailand over 20 times since that.
