Cancun - All
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.
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 (btw you don't need to live in Manchester for me to be able to help you with your travel plans).
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. This might be a beach holiday in Europe, 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:-
I absolutely live and breathe travel and I love to write about my experiences! Please take a look through my posts - you might find your own holiday inspiration.

In light of the current circumstances with Covid-19, travel within the UK will be an option for us all before we are able to go abroad, so I’ve taken a look at my home city of Manchester and why you should consider visiting. Manchester has been my adopted home for over 15 years now. I moved here for a new job in 2003 and have lived here ever since. And contrary to the media, I can confirm that it doesn’t always rain here! I should probably also declare to having an invested interest (and probably being a bit biased) as...

From a young age I’ve had an interest in the world around us. I’m the daughter of two geography university graduates so I grew up with quizzes about capital cities of the world, the states of America, counties of England etc so that may help to explain. When I was young I remember staying with my grandparents with my younger brother during school holidays. Some years we hired a cottage/holiday home in places like Pembrokeshire or Cornwall so I remember playing on the beach (often in full waterproofs and wellies) and exploring the local area. At 16 I went on a...
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.
