Many years ago, I was an insurance underwriter. Whilst rewarding, it was never inspiring. When the opportunity arose to take a career break, Australia was calling, and I soon found myself enjoying life down under. Being detached from the corporate world, an appreciation for travel was born and I realised that life is short and best spent with loved ones, in some of the most beautiful and interesting places around the globe.
The destinations I am most passionate about and have personally travelled to include the Maldives, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Bali, Mexico, Dominican Republic, New York, Las Vegas, Australia, New Zealand, Cook Islands, and French Polynesia.
Favourite destination: Australia
I have roots in Australia. My mum is Australian, I’ve got family there, I lived there when I was younger, and their way of life is so inherently compatible with every value I hold dear. An early finish from work gives way to a lazy afternoon at the pool or barbecue at the beach. Cherish the incredible restaurant scene, where a melting pot of cultures has facilitated everything from authentic family run Vietnamese to Michelin star fine dining. Scenes of spectacular natural beauty are never far away; secluded white sand beaches, aqua blue coral reefs, perfect stargazing free of light pollution, local wildlife undisturbed by humans... it’s all there.
Favourite hotel: Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort
Despite being set in the heart of Bangkok, the property doesn’t feel like a city hotel and in total contrast to its competitors, is low rise and complimented by vast landscaped gardens and a refreshing pool. Breakfast is served outdoors by the river and features daily changing fresh fruit smoothies. Loungers by the pool have a call button so you needn’t worry when a refill is required, while culinary options are authentic – think street food but with more hygiene.
Service Commitment From You
Telling me everything about your travel experiences will help in perfecting your next trip. Listening carefully and calling upon personal experience – together, we’ll get it right. I’d encourage you to liaise with me not just at the time of booking, but also if your plans need to change for any reason or if any concerns about your destination arise. I’m also keen to speak to you on your return home to hear all about it. It’s reassuring to have that relationship.
Your Top Tips for Travellers
• Don’t rush. Allow plenty of time for doing nothing at all.
• Engage with locals, ask for restaurant recommendations or their favourite things to do.
• If something isn’t quite right, speak to hotel staff. Feedback is a gift and they’ll be glad you mentioned it.
