I first joined the travel industry in 2001 as a Saturday Girl for Going Places in Norwich. My official job title was Welcome Host, which involved having a chat with customers and helping them with brochures while they were waiting for a Travel Consultant to become free.
I would like to visit Iceland, I have booked Iceland for my clients for years. I feel intrigued by its natural wonders. Volcanos, glaciers, waterfalls and thermal pools. Also if Mother Nature is on my side I might even be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights.
I really enjoy country music and I would love to visit its birth place…. Nashville. Music Row would be my first stop and a tour of the RCA Studio B, where hit makers such as Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley and Jonny Cash recorded their music. Then I would head over to the Country Music Hall of Fame with its glittering costumes, rare instruments and Elvis Presley’s gold Cadillac.
A couple of years ago I booked a lovely holiday for a client of mine and her husband. They really wanted to Visit Rio De Janeiro in Brazil and then Iguaçu Falls (one of the 7 Wonders of the World). Clients stayed 3 nights Augustos Copacabana in Rio De Janeiro a 7 night Samba Serenade Cruise to Buenos Aires Argentina and then a 2 night stay at Sheraton Iguaçu Falls in a Falls View room. I would love to do this itinerary one day.
As a family we would have a holiday in the UK every other year and a holiday abroad the alternate year. I enjoyed both of these for different reasons. We mainly visited Devon or Cornwall in the UK and I loved Torquay at the time. The English Rivera. Holidays abroad consisted of the Greek Islands such as Corfu, Lesbos, Crete and Zakynthos. I really think Greece and her islands is such a beautiful country. The turquoise seas and white wash buildings and olive tress growing everywhere make for stunning scenery, that even as a child I could appreciate, I love the culture and food too. Not to mention the Greeks themselves who are so welcoming and friendly.
1) Always have an adaptor plug.
2) Always have a travel guide (read it on the plane, boat or train).
3) Have a decent flight bag with good compartments, so you know exactly where your documents are when asked by officials – I have faffed so many times at airports not being able to find something.
