Tell me about your travel background…

My first experience of working in travel was four years with KLM, before I joined Travel Centre. I’ve now been with Premier Travel for 12 years, nine of those were based in our Bedford Street branch at their travel USA department, then I managed our Wymondham branch for a year, then two years at our Reepham Road branch, now I’m permanently based back at Bedford Street in Norwich.

Why do you love working in travel?

I love the experiences you have when working in travel – it’s such a nice product to be able to sell. I always say, travel is the only thing you can buy which makes you richer.

Where have you travelled to…

Lots of European cities; Italy (everywhere – that’s where I’m from) Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Barcelona, Mallorca, Menorca, Egypt (Taba, Port Galib ,Dahab ) Madeira, Lanzarote , Tunisia, Rhodes, Jersey, the Ice Hotel in Norway… then I’ve also been to South Africa, all of the West Coast USA; California, Utah, Nevada; East Coast USA: New Jersey (my family live there, so have been several times) Washington, Virginia and Connecticut; Western Canada: Alberta & British Colombia; I have toured all over both Ireland and Thailand, as well as visited Malaysia, Borneo, Indonesia (Bali), Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Cuba and Barbados, and I have cruised with Hurtigruten.

Travel wish list..

My dream destination is the Galapagos Islands for the wildlife, I love animals so it would be a perfect trip for me. I’d also love to go to China for the culture, I would be really interested to see the country and how different it is to our western way of life.

Favourite holiday destination and why?

My favourite destination is South Africa for the wildlife – there’s really nowhere better to see the big five in their natural habitat.

Favourite travel memory and why?

Watching the baby lion cubs in South Africa, they were as surprised to see us as we were to see them! It was a magical experience.

Top Travel Tip?

Make a photocopy of your passport and keep it safe, pack it separately to your other documents in case of an emergency.
