Mauritius - All
Hi, my name is Sharon, welcome to my page and thank you for visiting.
I am an independent travel consultant based in Wiltshire, serving clients throughout the West Country and wider UK.
I was born in the beautiful city of Bath, grew up in rural Somerset and now live on the outskirts of Chippenham with my partner, having moved here a few years ago. We love being based on the edge of the Cotswolds in glorious countryside with such iconic sightseeing right on our doorstep.
Attention to detail, great customer service and customer satisfaction are my focus and my aim. The smallest of details can make the difference in creating a great experience, even simple knowledge of the best seat choices on flights, or ensuring access needs are met can make all the difference, and adding extras like celebration surprises, restaurant bookings, excursions etc, have endless options and are all possible to give memories that will last a lifetime.
I have travelled widely in the UK, and to the European destinations of Ireland, France, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Italy, Monaco and the Greek islands of Crete, Corfu and Kos. I have also travelled to several destinations within USA, to Jamaica, further afield to touring in Cambodia, Vietnam, and Nepal and more recently to the luxurious Maldives. I have organised group Motorsports and sightseeing holidays to Barcelona and Monaco, family sun and UK holidays, Disney experiences in both France and USA, as well as city breaks, romantic mini-breaks, walking holidays in Europe, all-inclusive couples’ holidays, and adventure tours in Asia.
There’s a quote by Anita Desai that says “wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow”, and I believe that if the experiences you have and the memories you make when you travel are positive, fulfilling and happy ones, then they enrich your life and your well-being and become part of the person you are. To enable others to have those experiences, and to help plan and map out their travel ambitions is such a pleasure, and to be chosen to be your personal Travel Counsellor is a complete privilege.
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.

I am an out-and-out, self-confessed foodie, and whenever we are travelling, I make a point of seeking out local, traditional food (often to the frustration of my darling other half), and we always try to eat, if possible, where the locals eat, as then we know the food is good. During our trip to Cambodia we made the most of as much local cuisine as we could. We had everything from spit-roasted chicken with stir-fried young waterlily shoots and rice, in an outdoor kitchen in a co-operative settlement near Siem Reap, to the traditional, very thick, rich, sweet and...

We had talked about going to Austria for a long time. Derek had been stationed in Germany for a number of years, and visited Austria when he could so he was keen to return and introduce me to its beauty. We decided to head to Austria’s "Lake District” in the Salzkammergut region. We stayed in St Gilgen, on the shores of Lake Wolfgangsee, near the Zwolferhorn. We were there during the late May/early June half-term holiday. We flew into Salzburg and picked up a hire car, so we could tour at our leisure. Leaving Salzburg behind and heading out to the...

The third part of our journey took us to Chitwan, and a Safari resort where we had our own lodges. The welcome was warm, and nothing was too much trouble. We settled in, had a late lunch and then were taken to a traditional dance show for our evening entertainment. Dinner and an early night followed, as we had a dugout canoe ride, a trip to the elephant centre and a jeep safari in store for the next day. A very exciting day it turned out to be. We left the resort after breakfast to stroll to the banks of the...

The morning sadly brought more mist, and the mountains stayed mostly hidden. However, we did have the opportunity to explore Pokhara a little, which was a more typical tourist destination with great little eateries, relaxed coffee shops, a beautiful lakeside and lots more besides, including free-roaming cows walking down the main street! We set off from the city after breakfast to the village of Ghachok, which was in much need of help rebuilding following the earthquake, especially its school, which the Gurkha contingent with us were already patrons of. The journey took us nearer to the Annapurna range which were at...

Our trip to Nepal was due to my partner Derek’s association with the Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment (QOGLR). Part of his army career he served as Officer Commanding of a Gurkha squadron, and the trip was for the Regiment’s 60th Anniversary to take us on welfare visits, as well as seeing the sights and how Nepal was recovering from the 2015 earthquake. Getting a glimpse of the Himalayas on the flight approach into Kathmandu is truly awe inspiring and was a taste of what the following two weeks would bring. Kathmandu reminded me of the cities in Cambodia and Vietnam...

We flew from Siem Reap following our tour of Cambodia into Da Nang and travelled down the coast to Hoi An, where our hotel, the Palm Garden Resort, is set on its own private stretch of beach. We were upgraded on arrival, and given the most gorgeous private beach bungalow with the beach bar and a restaurant close by. With the beach stretching away to either side of us as far as you could see, and a pool and a spa, it was going to be exactly the rest and relaxation needed after tearing around sightseeing the previous four days,...

For many years I wanted to visit Cambodia, and Angkor Wat, the capital of the Khmer empire, was what piqued my interest in the country. Later when the Tomb Raider film showed the other temples in that area, it became number one on my list of iconic places to visit. We added Vietnam for our second week and the two destinations gave us a trip of a lifetime filled with fantastic memories. We travelled late August/early September. We flew into Phnom Penh at night, accompanied by impressive thunderstorms, which was quite the experience. We were met by Thea, our lovely guide...

Having had a busy start to our trip further south in Cambodia, we started the next day with a relaxed breakfast at the hotel followed by a drive out to see Spean Praptos bridge near Kampong Kdei. Spean Praptos Bridge is more than 1,000 years old and once was the longest corbeled stone-arch bridge in the world, with its more than twenty narrow arches. The bridge was built in the 12th century and is one of few remaining bridges to have survived from the Khmer Empire to the modern day. We then headed on to Kampong Kleang floating village where a...

Once we had asked Sharon to help us find our holiday the hardest thing we had to do was make decisions! Sharon provided a range of opportunities that fitted our requirements and budget, which included a lot of the extras we just wouldn’t have found in budget, on our own. Sharon was available when convenient for us so we did not have to make a special trip to a travel agents and feel like we had to make a decision straight away. Sharon’s response time to messages is impressive and shows her commitment and care. We also have peace of mind that you have one person to contact for queries rather than waiting on the phone to call centres for each aspect of your holiday. We are grateful for Sharon’s hard work and attention to detail.
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.
