Having worked in the travel industry for over 13 years, I feel so lucky to have experienced such an incredible array of destinations and different cultures. My specialist area for many years was Asia Pacific, including the weird and wonderful China and Japan.
One of my favorite experiences to date was Thailand, perhaps as it was my honeymoon, but the blend of fast paced Bangkok, the walking and cycling in the North and wondering along beautiful beaches for a cool Singha Beer was just perfect. I have also been lucky enough to experience parts of Africa, the Caribbean, USA – a road trip around San Diego being one of my funniest trips - Europe and also the Middle East. Now a Mum to a 3 year old, my new passion is finding perfect destinations for family travel without compromising on adventure and exhilarating experiences.

"Thank you so much - you have been super. Efficient and I feel safe in your hands."
"Your recommendations in Cambodia were spot on!"
"Great Job, Vicky."
"As always, we appreciate the excellent assistance."
Favourite places I've been
Hoi An, Vietnam – enjoy a wonderful dinner one evening at a river side restaurant in the cobbled streets. The atmosphere is fantastic and just watching the river life is a great way to end the day.
Dubrovnik, Croatia – not a real foodies destination, there are limited good restaurants. Ask our team for a recommendation and a reservation in advance otherwise you’ll be wandering around the Old Town trying to choose!
Jamaica – ask us to find out about any local parties and shows in the area. Part of the Jamaican experience is the music vibe and it’s much safer than one assumes and so much fun.
If you are not lucky enough to have lounge access at Gatwick North Terminal, there is a basic soft play area next to Boots perfect for letting under 5s crash around and burn off lots of energy before your flight.
My hot picks
Beautiful suites, some with private pools and a wonderful dining room creating such a nice vibe within the hotel. The excursions to the Angkor Temples are so unique and the hotel’s personal guides are phenomenal – they take you by luxury tuk tuk,
Known as the other Jamaica, fabulous boutique hotel set in the lush forest without any of the nasties! Definitely a place for music lovers with its own recording studio you can play around in frequented by the likes of Gwen Stefani, Bjork, Rhianna.
A warm and welcoming hotel with incredibly spacious loft suites, perfect for larger families who may like to be able to enjoy a mix of self-catering and having chefs in for a night. Great for wandering out for a drink in the evening.
Paradise found! My favorite place ever! Laid back chic, private island retreat in the wonderfully unspoiled St Vincent and the Grenadines. Top of the list for any keen laid back beach lovers who just want to switch off and relax.
Having enjoyed my 30th here, it is just such a wonderful place for families if you are not too bothered by a formal kids club. Each villa has a heated pool so little ones don’t get shivery - everywhere is sand bottom so it’s like having your own sandpit.
