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 was looking to launch tailor-made holidays to Australia & New Zealand, I jumped at the opportunity of joining this specialist team.

Would definitely recommend them
Such an easy experience booking through Travel Nation, Annette was lovely and crafted us the perfect itenary at a great price (also very patient with all my changes). I will definitely use them again!

Travel made easy
I have now made 3 trips from U.K. to Australia/NZ, all booked through Travel Nation. Each trip has been tailored exactly to my needs, and, each gone faultlessly - right down to ferry crossings and various "experiences".
