Algarve - All
Hi and nice to meet you.
One of the most discussed topics nowadays is travel, such a happy thought. Where are you off to next? I am here to fulfil the conversation. I offer an excellent service you can't get anywhere else, with me it is personal. I take that stress away and will create that perfect holiday for you.
I have worked in travel for over 20 years now and I still love my job. I have travelled extensively and to include a few: Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Thailand, Malaysia, Borneo and specialist destinations like Sri Lanka, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia and New Zealand. I have also been to the USA and Canada and much of Europe. There is nothing better than first-hand knowledge.
I love a luxury hotel with a large room and a good size balcony. I don't like meal restrictions and I need be close to a town as I love exploring and dining out. The hotel must have comfortable sun loungers, a heated pool (in winter), fine dining and a smart trendy bar! These are my little concerns and you will have yours too, my job is to understand your concerns and ensure that any of those you dislike are eliminated
I love the Formula 1, the British GT - anything that competes in a car race.
Family time is important, however when the opportunity arises, a night out with my better half or friends is always good fun. A nice meal accompanied by a bottle of Amarone is perfect!
I hope you've enjoyed reading about me and what I can offer and I look forward to hearing from you.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so please either fill in and send the form below or simply give me a call 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.

My trip to Palma was perfect, three nights at the delightful Gran Melia Victoria. Palma is a great city and positioned right on the seafront/marina only 20 minutes from the airport. One side you have the cruise port and the other end you have old town and the Cathedral, walking the distance will take you 30 minutes along the promenade. Our hotel was over towards the cruise port, had the most spectacular views of the harbour and towards the Cathedral, always book a room with sea view. Our Deluxe Room Side Sea View room was small, but it had everything we needed to...

June is not the month to be travelling to the Canaries really as it’s a winter destination and can be very hot in summer. I went against all my thoughts and booked to stay for a week at the 5* Luxury Gran Bahia Del Duque. I got a great deal and the weather was great, a mixture of sunshine and overcast which was perfect for us a family. Very quiet though. Upon arrival we were greeted by lots of friendly staff. We entered high up looking down to the resort, and the lobby was impressive and very welcoming. We checked in...

Two weeks before Christmas I jetted off to the island of Tenerife for three nights. I have stayed at a lot of hotels in Tenerife but the Ritz Carlton Abama was the only one missing. We arrived after a quick flight on EasyJet which was very good and on time. The sun was shining, and the temperature was 24 degrees. A 25-minute journey and we reached our hotel. The entrance was grand, very clean and well thought out, with no queues and there was such a relaxed atmosphere. Plus, we arrived high up with views swooping down to the ocean. We were...

When the UK weather takes a turn for the worst, you immediately think hot, beach direct flights/short flights – Canaries! Well how about Abu Dhabi? It took 6.5 hours direct on Etihad in which was superb, the product on board is fantastic whether you travel in economy or business class. The staff was attentive and made us feel comfortable from check in to arriving. The entertainment system is excellent and kept my 2 young children happy. Including in my service is arrival meet and greet, you are simply met from the aircraft and escorted through Immigration, assisted with bags and handed over...

Skiing is one of the most enjoyable sports I have ever done, not only do you have the challenge of mastering the sport, it's when you conquer the parallel ski, how to stop and turn around and go backwards without even knowing how you did that!! Honestly the satisfaction you get especially when you have skiied from the top of the mountain to the bottom and made it in one piece WITHOUT FALLING is unbelievable. “The race is on." The view from the chairlift is incredible and once you're at the top, stop and take a breath, pose for a picture,...

To summarise my visits, I first travelled there in 2000 and have been back 11 times. Sheikh Zayed Road the Abu Dhabi – Dubai link was complete and many buildings were starting to take shape. Dubai was creating a skyline like no other and their vision to attract tourism was impressive. Almost unbelievable. There are so many parts to Dubai, Deira and Dubai Creek, Downtown Dubai, The Marina, Jumeirah Beach, Jebel Ali, The Desert, The World and the famous Palm. All very different and home to luxurious hotels and impressive architecture. People from all over the world would visit and reside...

My family and I have just returned from Gran Canaria, I've been to many places on the island, but there was something very nice about Puerto Mogan. A small resort with back streets resembling a traditional Italian village, beautiful flowers, low rise white buildings all housing apartments, boutiques and small restaurants, there is a small beach and harbour which has about 50 boats docked. We had the choice of some great cuisine, excellent wines including Amarone which is my favorite and reasonably priced. We stayed at the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Mogan which is a 10-15 minute walk from the town...

Thailand is a country that always impresses, no matter how many times you visit. I started my journey in Bangkok, staying at the luxury Mandarin Oriental for a couple of nights. Positioned right on Chao Phraya river and not far from places of interest, it was perfect. My Superior River View Room was high, modern and comfortable and on a clear day the views were great. I spent a full day visiting the city of Bangkok, which included the Grand Palace, the markets, floating markets and much more. I was exhausted, but it was such a great day and what a...

My journey started when I was told, “Great news - how do you fancy a trip to India, in six weeks?" Yes please! Fantastic - another destination to add to my portfolio. Fast forward six weeks, I arrived into Delhi, having just completed a 10 hour flight with British Airways in Club World. 6’6 flat beds, luxury products and a silver service - perfect. I was ushered through immigration and customs, avoided the very friendly guys/porters wanting to help me with my luggage for a tip, and was driven straight to the delightful Imperial Delhi where I stayed for two...

Just like to say thanks again, we all had an amazing first family holiday and will be in contact soon to sort out our next one.
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.
