What is your favourite thing about your job?

Getting great feedback from clients who I've advised on their holiday. Receiving thanks for time and effort I've put in to make sure their holiday was special

Where would you like to visit next?

Vietnam and Laos. To visit all the places we heard about during the late 60's and 70's and to see how the countries have recovered to become a thriving tourist area would be something special.

What is your dream holiday destination?

New Zealand, a land of unspoilt beauty and outdoor activities to spend more time exploring "Lord of the Rings" country and to watch the mighty "All Blacks" destroy the rugby world.

What has been your favourite holiday, which you have booked for a customers which you would love to take yourself?

Tanzania, the scenery and wildlife sound amazing and to see animals that, as a child I visited in wildlife parks, in their own surroundings would be a fantastic experience.

What were your favourite childhood holidays?

Southern Ireland near Galway in a little village called Oughterard, where my Grandfather owned a hotel called The Corrib Hotel, on the shores of Lock Corrib was a magical time for my sister and I, freedom, riding the donkeys, fishing in the lock for salmon a truly wonderful way to grow up.

My Favourite Memory

Antarctica!! To be one of the few to walk on the Antarctic peninsular and to see the seals, and penguins in their own habitat. the colours of the Icebergs and to taste 180 year old ice in my gin and tonic has to be done and is very special
