I imagine that you have found your way onto my page as a starting point for your next adventure? Maybe you are thinking of a relaxing week on a secluded sandy beach, or a tailor made trip of a lifetime exploring deepest darkest Peru or a stylish city break to New York. Whatever your thoughts and hopes are for your next holiday, I am positive I can help.
Being an independent travel agent, I am passionate about travel and enjoy the whole experience from the early planning stages right the way through to the eventual return home and looking through all of the memories made on the camera. Being able to walk alongside you throughout this process and help you build the holiday of your dreams is quite simply the best job (if I can even call it that, it really doesn’t feel like work).
As a Travel Counsellor, I can offer so much more than the High Street shops or the internet. With me, not only can I create entirely bespoke holidays through my access to thousands of flights, hotels and experiences from every corner of the globe. I also offer exceptional service from beginning to end. With me, you will not have to worry about a thing.
Over the years I have travelled all over the world however with 2 young children my escapades have taken a somewhat different approach! It doesn’t make me love it any less and it is amazing watching my kids experience different countries and cultures. I have found that attention to detail is the key difference between a good holiday and an amazing one, so whether you are travelling with a family, going solo or have any other requirements I will be sure to take note and adapt your trip to make it the best yet.
I have access to industry leading systems and tools that enable me to piece together your unique holiday. I pride myself on my attention to detail and ability to think ahead so any demands or requests that you may have will be catered for.
It is also worth noting that any holidays booked through me are 100% financially protected by either our Travel Counsellor financial trust or by ATOL.
I am available on the phone; via e mail or through Facebook at any time so please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to hear from you.
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.

It probably goes without saying that covid has drastically impacted my business and the way I work. At the beginning of 2020 I was executing my plans and succeeding in having my best year yet as a Travel Counsellor and then over the course of a few weeks, the enormity of coronavirus really started to dawn on me and everyone within the travel industry. The initial months of lockdown felt nothing short of savage with holiday cancellations, border closures, refunds as well as 2 kids at home and a shortage of loo roll (of all things). BUT the optimist that...

Costa Rica is where it all started for me- my travel obsession. My love for exploring and need to see as much of the world as I can! I was a young 17 year old given an opportunity at school with a charity to travel to Costa Rica for 4 weeks of adventure, community work and hard slogs. I certainly came back a different person to the one who left Brackley… and with a new love for coffee! We started in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. To be honest this was fairly unremarkable as a 17 year old...

Before I started my business as a Travel Counsellor, the thought of a cruise hadn’t even hit my consciousness. My adventures had always been overland and I had made some (incorrect) assumptions and deemed a cruise to not be ‘my cup of tea’. That was until a colleague said to me ‘you wait, once you step on a ship you will get it’… and boy was that true! The first ship I visited was on the launch for the MSC Bellissima in Southampton. As soon as I set eyes on her, I was in awe and I knew I was...

‘It is not the destination but the journey that counts’ and boy is this is true on a Transatlantic crossing on board the Cunard Queen Mary 2! As you would expect Cunard are a well-oiled machine with the embarkation process being quick and painless. Before we had a chance to think about it, we were being welcomed on board and we started exploring the ship that would carry us home. First stop was our balcony cabin- number 4183 to be exact. Our cabin was pristine and by luck we had a fabulous view of New York from our balcony- what...

Time was certainly of the essence on my recent jaunt to San Francisco! Why so short, I hear you ask? One of my brothers works as cabin crew and I tagged along with him so whilst he worked the 10 hours and 25-minute flight, I worked my way through 3 movies and had a nap (for anyone with a hectic lifestyle, I am sure you can appreciate what a luxury this was). I am a self-confessed ‘planner’ so before we even departed I knew what we would be doing. Our first stop was our Hop on/ Hop off bus tour....

I love travel! I love adventure! I love exploring new places off the beaten track! I love eating new food! I love it all! I also love travelling with my kids (and husband, mustn't forget him... he is very good at pushing the suitcase trolley)! I had a very lucky childhood with regular trips over to Cairo to stay with my Grandparents who lived there. I never fully appreciated the experiences this gave me and eventually how it helped me to become the person I am today; with my own travel business. Since having children, I am always looking for ways...

It isn’t often that Belmond invite you onboard in a professional capacity to experience the fantastic British Pullman whilst she traverses the Kent countryside on her ‘Golden Age of Travel’ trip and of course I jumped at the chance and loved every minute! A luxurious brand with a reputation to match I was looking forward to putting one of my favourite frocks on and exploring the train and all she offers. And what can I say- it did not disappoint. Arriving at Victoria Station, London; it was easy to navigate and find your platform. It really is here that you...

I find describing South Africa as a holiday destination hard, not because it is dull or boring, oh no… but because it is everything. Quite honestly there is nothing this country cannot offer you as a holiday destination (well maybe apart from skiing?). If you love the beach- go to South Africa If you love nature- go to South Africa If you love food and drink- go to South Africa If you love travelling off the beaten track... or the mountains- go to South Africa …I think you get my point. In this blog, I am going to cover off Cape Town. This is...
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.
