I've had almost 20 years’ experience in the travel industry, always specialising in holidays to Australia and New Zealand with worldwide stopovers.
I'm a born and bred Londoner with lots of my family now living in New Zealand, hence the numerous visits! My last being for a 3 month career break. I fell in love with Australia the first time I visited in 1995 and have visited almost every year since.
Apart from travelling, I love music and going to live gigs. I enjoy the cinema and fancy restaurants, all of which keep me poor but happy!
Brighton Polytechnic...now Brighton University (that shows my age!)
I first met Haydn (MD of Travel Nation) almost 20 years ago when I started as a trainee travel consultant at Bridge The World. I stayed there for 9 years, going on to help launch the luxury Australia & New Zealand specialist, Bridge & Wickers in 2005. It's here that I learned to appreciate the joy of business class flights and luxury hotels! After 8 years, Bridge & Wickers became part of The Ultimate Travel Company and I stayed on whilst the transition was completed. When I found out that Travel Nation were looking to launch tailor-made holidays to Australia & New Zealand, I jumped at the opportunity of joining this specialist team.

Great company, experienced and knowledgeable people.
This is the second time we have used Travel Nation. With relatives in Australia our annual trip there always involves visiting other countries on our return journey to the UK. Although we do a lot of independent travelling, we asked Travel Nation to organize these annual trips for us.
