I’m Karen and I’m an adopted northerner living in Sale, Manchester.
I’m passionate about travel and love to share my experiences (and photos) and inspire others to do the same. The joke amongst my friends and family is that ‘I am always on holiday’ (if only that was true). I’m lucky to have travelled widely over the years and have been to over 50 countries. Favourite destinations include Brazil, Mexico, Japan, Australia, Italy and Spain with Cambodia having a special place in my heart as I lived there for several months whilst volunteering having previously visited on holiday. I love visiting places that have a great mixture of art & design, history, architecture, culture, different food and drink and hopefully better weather than the UK.
Before becoming a Travel Counsellor I worked in marketing for 25 years, for big names such as Virgin and most recently for Marketing Manchester, the tourist board promoting the city region to the world. Now it’s the other way around and I hope I can promote the world to the lovely people of Manchester.
I would love to hear about your holiday ideas and what’s important and of interest to you to then enable me to create a bespoke travel itinerary just for you. This might be a week or two in Europe to escape the weather here, a short city break, a long-haul once in a lifetime trip, off the beaten track somewhere, an all-inclusive cruise and not forgetting breaks in the UK too. Flexibility and availability are important – I am available on the phone, email or to meet in person and this can be outside of ‘normal business hours’ if that suits you better. You will get great personal service from me along with the 100% financial protection of Travel Counsellors.
Please get in touch to see how I can help you to plan and book your next trip.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
From the pristine white-sand beaches of Thailand’s idyllic islands to the sprawling wide-open roads of the USA; the historic and breathtakingly beautiful architecture of India to the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Maldives – there’s a world of wonder out there and it’s just waiting to be explored.
