Travel has always been a key passion of mine and I am constantly planning my next adventure! I have been lucky enough to visit some fantastic areas and countries all over the world, however I have a strong love of Europe. I often think it is easy to forget about the incredible destinations we have close to home and what a variety these offer and the plus of no jet lag too!
In just a 3 hour flight, you can be exploring the fascinating landscapes and geography of Iceland, fantastic in both winter with a chance of seeing the Northern Lights and summer for outdoor activities at a slightly warmer temperature!
Then of course there are the capital cities or little towns, steeped with history or just for a weekend break away from the usual day to day. We also have some wonderful beaches to enjoy and delicious Mediterranean food and even incredible mountains with a plethora of activities.

What my guests have said
"Milly was fabulous. Highly organized, friendly and prompt. She planned the most memorable honeymoon and gave excellent value for money. We will never forget being on snowmobiles in the middle of a glacier on Christmas day."
"Flawless service only exceeded by the incredible
adventure that was planned. How are we going to
vacation any other way now?"
"Excellent service, protection and using very good local operators."
Milly was really friendly and helpful throughout and made the booking process very easy. She was very
knowledgeable and provided me with all the information I needed prior to our trip.
"Many thanks for the great service from you guys, it was a pleasure dealing with you and you made everything ridiculously easy. I am off on safari next year, I purchased the vacation at a silent auction and so the travel agent came with it, dealing with them makes me realise just how exceptional your service is. I will be recommending Scott Dunn to friends and family and hope to work with you again on my next trip."
"Milly and Philly have been fantastic. From my first enquiry about booking the vacation right the way through confirming all the details and checking we were ok while on vacation."
"Milly Walker did an excellent job of sorting out a vacation with less than a weeks notice. We gave her a list of requirements and she managed to accommodate them all."
My hot picks
Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como, Italian Lakes, ItalySet by the lake, this is a true gem from which to enjoy the surrounds of Lake Como
Monastero Santa Rosa, Conca dei Marini, Amalfi CoastUnrivalled views from a cliff top location as well as so much Italian charm, make this the perfect romantic destination.
Pine Bay Lodge, Swedish Lapland, SwedenFor a wintry break, this is perfection for a cosy lodge to stay from which to embrace husky sledding, northern lights and snowshoeing.
Villa Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik, CroatiaA stunning hotel, just a short stroll from beautiful Duborvnik Old Town – great for a coastal break with a town close by.
My top tips
When in Dubrovnik, take the cable car up the mountain just before sunset to enjoy a ride up with an impressive sea view sunset and then enjoy a ‘sundowner’ in the bar at the top.
In North Vietnam, make sure you take a Junk cruise in Halong Bay, it is amazing sailing past the floating villages and jumping off for a kayak to further explore.
Greek Island hopping is great vacation for seeing more than one area and staying by the sea!
