I've had over 10 years experience in the travel industry and have done a fair bit of exploring in my time. I love helping people plan their adventures and get out there to travel this beautiful planet of ours! You'll find me anywhere with wild animals and beautiful nature to enjoy. Some of my favourite destinations are Borneo, East Africa, Galapagos, Canada and of course our own Aotearoa (because who can really beat our landscaped here?!).

  • For two weeks during lockdown alert level 4, Nicky McCone worked tirelessly to find me flights out of New Zealand. There were numerous cancellations of flights and she very patiently found me alternatives are rebooked my itinerary with each set back. As I look back over my emails there were about 20 messages back and forth. Nicky was extraordinarily patient and good humored through it all keeping me apprised of changing flight schedules out of the South Island. Her tireless hard work and dedication in stressful times is truly exemplary. Kudos Nicky!

    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.

    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.
