"Travelling to me is about experiencing new places, people and wildlife. I love the outdoors and walking in the wilderness – South America ticks all these boxes"
I started in the travel industry back at the end of 1993 in Australian after my first big overseas trip to Europe. On my return I fell for a lovely Kiwi guy and have been here for the last twenty years.
It has been a journey I have loved with over 40 countries under my belt and experiencing the many wonderful ways to travel. It might be staying with locals on Lake Titicaca or trekking the rugged mountains of Peru. Or perhaps seeing with your own eyes the incredible Toucan with his magnificent beak or flocks of Macau’s soaring in the jungles of the Amazon. I also remember when I did a little side trip into Mexico and thinking wow, I so want to see more of this part of the world. Well I have seen a little more and there is so much more to explore.
On my wish list is the Galapagos Islands with its unique wildlife as well as Antarctica…
I still have some more treks I want to do however I have two children who are keen to join my travels so I might have to share some of those great moments with them – which is cool.
Whether you are looking for a group tour, an expedition or a tailor made experience with a choice of accommodations and inclusions there is something for everyone which is why I love the product. Coupled with the fact that everyone I work with is as passionate about travel and in particular Latin  America as I am…
