For me, it has always been about great travel experiences and travel stories – sharing them, and now helping others plan and enjoy the many wonderful experiences our world has to offer.

I have a love of good food and wine, enjoy photography, have often been labelled a seasoned shopper, and seek out and enjoy the finer things in life.

For forty plus years (bitten by the travel bug on my OE) living overseas, travelling as a traveller and a tourist; and as tour escort while representing airlines and promoting a number of destinations, travel is in my DNA.

Seventeen years promoting and experiencing Malaysia in my role as New Zealand Sales Manager for Malaysia Airlines, in conjunction with the Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board. Six years promoting Singapore with Singapore Airlines; regular visits to Thailand most years since 1990; and many return trips over the last decade to New York where our son lives.

Over the years - on business and with my family - I have enjoyed considerable time in various parts of Asia, Australia, USA, UK and Europe, The Maldives, Pacific Islands, and cruising.
