My favourite holiday memories

  • Dubai
    Dubai Lauren Stickings

    Atlantis the Palm Resort, absolutely breathtaking. The Waterpark here was so fun! It even had a Waterslide that goes through a Shark Tank- scary stuff but definitely not something to be missed. The Lost Chambers Aquarium inside this resort. Very grand its a once in a lifetime experience to stay somewhere like this.

  • Mexico

    I went on a Contiki in 2019 to Mexico - from the top of Mexico right down to the bottom in Cancun and including all of the outer islands in the Mediterranean, and even to Isla Holbox.

  • Disneyland

    Reliving my childhood dreams at Disneyland with my best friend was so epic! The characters roaming around that I grew up watching on TV, the crazy rollercoaster rides, beautiful hot weather, the craziness of Sunset Boulevard. And the stunning mansions in Beverly Hills was certainly a very special trip. 

  • The Middle East
    The Middle East Lauren Stickings

    I have spent a lot of time in Dubai & Abu Dhabi & Oman in depth really trying everything there is to do there and staying in many different areas of these places. I also have vast knowledge of the rest of the Middle East. 

  • Europe
    Europe Lauren Stickings

    I have travel specialist certificates in both Spain & Turkey, and I have been fortunate enough to have travelled a lot of Europe. 

  • Canada
    Canada Lauren Stickings

    I love doing big itineraries throughout Canada. In my previous job in travel I was doing big once in a lifetime vacations for people wanting to go to Canada. Think the Rocky Mountaineer Train, self guided tours, the Rockies in depth and Colombia ice fields touring, Alaska Cruises. 

  • Mexico

    I have been everywhere in Mexico when I went on a huge tour (from the top right down to the bottom) and it truly has a place in my heart. Such a vibrant, culturally rich country with much more than just Tacos and Burritos to offer!

What my customers have to say

  • Warm friendly manner & timely with task
  • She listened to what we wanted for a holiday, took great notes, and got back to me promptly, so we booked the same day! I felt like she was there to help me and was easy to talk to. Nothing was a problem- even in our limited time. I've since recommended her to friends for their travel too.

  • Lauren was excellent to work with, and very efficient at organising the trip that we wanted, with nothing being an issue. We will be happy to go back to her for our next overseas adventure. Would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of travelling.
