My years of studying and my personal experience of travelling to Australia on family holidays has fuelled my passion for creating unforgettable holidays. I spend my days designing holidays within New Zealand, Australia, the South Pacific and Asia, and I absolutely love arranging cruise holidays.

I booked my first overseas trip with House of Travel so it's a pretty surreal feeling that I get to be a part of the team now. I have a real love for travel from Paragliding in Austria, Train trips through Japan to VIP parties in Las Vegas. I want to bring that same joy that I feel while travelling to as many people that are wanting to get out there and see the world!

    Ever tried airplane karaoke?

    Swifties are taking the world by storm and especially Kiwis. Taylor Swift has finished one of her shows in Melbourne where Kiwis flying back home didn't let the energy dial down just yet. Passengers onboard the 4 hour NZ128 flight back home from Melbourne had one of Taylor's hits "Shake it Off" playing during the flight with the Eras concert goers were singing and standing during the flight.

    4 wheels or 2? Here's one of the best destinations to explore using a scooter!

    When you think Italy you probably think Ferrari. Well, we think you should choose... Vespa! Italy is home to one of the most historically beautiful countries and monuments in the world. Flying by in your Ferrari won't let you enjoy the views. Slow down and take it in with a 2-wheeled wonder. The urban streets filled with culture and the Italian countryside, either of which are perfectly suited for the iconic moped and is definitely a must-do on your bucket list.
  • Slide 3

The hotel brings past and future together in a boutique and luxurious way.

    Living life on the rails.

    The world’s most famous train has just opened a brand new route. Crossing from Paris to Portofino, the 2 day journey won’t only give you an experience of a lifetime, it will also set you back $8,500 one way. The heritage and prestige onboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express has never seen the Ligurian coast in its lifetime. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience which should not be overlooked.

Our travel stories

Postcard from Camino Trail

Walking the last 150kms of the Camino Trail was very rewarding. Well worth paying to have your luggage transported between each town.

Postcard from Las Vegas

We all know Las Vegas for its Casinos, shows, shopping and bright lights and I love it, but did you know...

Postcard from Cambodia

Angkor Wat and the temples around Siem Reap are beautiful. My favourite is Ta Prohm with the roots growing up through the ruins, a little bit Indiana Jones.

Postcards from France

I am seriously in love with France, be it the Glitz of Paris, The charming villages of Rural France, be it Provence, Burgundy, coastal or inland I just can't seem too every have enough time here.

Postcards from Africa

AFRICA was a life long dream to experience real wilderness, and when we finally got there it exceeded everything I could have imagined.
