Lovely to meet you

Originally from Bournemouth in the UK, I worked for a number of years for an independent family run company that specialised in cruising, living within 45 minutes of Southampton I have been lucky to have cruised with several cruise lines, I think cruising is a great way to travel and would be happy to share my experiences with you. 

Working in travel from a young age and living with Wanderlust (a strong desire or urge to travel and explore the world) I made it my aim to try and experience a new destination each year.

Whether you are travelling across the Tasman, planning a big trip to Europe or a family holiday in the Islands, or looking to experience your first cruise, Let me help you plan your forthcoming holiday.

I look forward to working with you and sharing my knowledge to create an unforgettable trip!
