I liken planning a holiday to baking a cake. It takes several well measured and thought out ingredients for a great result. I have been lucky to have travelled extensively myself and being a travel consultant for more than 20 years, I use these 'ingredients' - experience and expertise - to draw on to help create amazing holidays and lifelong memories.

    Racheal
  • Thanks again for your expertise and support. Couldn't have done it without you.
    Kim
  • We have booked with Tracey before and we would highly recommend her to all our friends and fellow travelers. Tracey recommended where to book our stays in Hong Kong before and Japan after our cruise. It really helped with her knowledge of the area. For our cruise, it ticked all our boxes and we cannot wait for March.
    Wendy
  • We had a tight deadline and Tracey had put a great plan in place. At the last minute we had to completely change direction. She executed this expertly, ticking every box we had asked for in her usual ’can-do’ manner, and finished with an hour to spare. Couldn’t be happier! We have a proven track record with Tracey. In 2019, she helped us to plan a complicated 11 week trip and was on hand when we had to navigate the last two weeks having had our credit cards stolen. Her professional, creative and timely service came to the fore again in this time of need where we had to change plans at short notice.

    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.
  • Slide 2

    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

    Kings Cross has a new boutique hotel opened in this iconic location.

    Sydney's iconic Coke sign has a new boutique hotel finally opened. The boutique hotel has lavish rooms with a hint of timeless heritage in a modern twist. The offered luxury is something to see. Hotel Indigo Potts Point is the name and it's taking Sydney by storm as it sits right behind the iconic "Coke sign" in Sydney. The hotel brings past and future together in a boutique and luxurious way.

Our travel stories

On board the Spirit of Enderby

The Spirit of Enderby is an expedition ship carrying just 50 passengers. Sailing from Honiara the capital of the Solomon Islands we discovered idyllic islands and isolated villages where unique time-honoured traditions are still alive. Life has changed little as visitors from the outside world often only arrive once a year.

Postcard from Bali

When we visited Bali with friends and I was really impressed. There is plenty of options of things to do to keep you busy or just sit and relax at the beach or by the pool.

Cruising on Ocean Insigna

Cruising on Oceania Insigna from Boston to Montreal was so lovely.

Postcard from the Gold Coast

Heading to the Gold Coast for the first time in 14 years for conference was enlightening.

Postcard From Europe

This year I was lucky enough to take my family to Europe.  

Postcards from Italy

We used Naples as a base for the first 2 nights to go off and see other things, but whilst there we saw Castel Nuovo which was very cool – We paid the extra 10 Euros for the guided tour as well which was worth it! It gave us access to more of the castle, including the roof which gave some great views over the city and ocean.
