My Background

My desire for travel has permitted me to travel to more than 50 countries.  I have also lived and worked on 3 different continents being Africa, Europe and Australia. This has allowed me to be fully submerged within different cultures and experience local living first hand.

Every opportunity has enriched my life and fuelled my passion for travel. I have experienced some of the world’s most amazing gifts; hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, watching lions roar in the Serengeti, being amazed at the leg rowing fishermen in Myanmar,cycling the backroads of Cuba, being awed by the beauty of Taj Mahal.

The most notary travel experience was a charity race with the Rickshaw Run – driving ourselves 1700kms across Northern India in our own rickshaw. We raised money to help provide clean water in remote areas of India as well as providing support to women and children who have suffered atrocities in Nepal.

I look forward to sharing my passion for travel and helping plan your next adventure!

After discussion of our interests in Brazil, Jody arranged for us to join a group tour in the Panatel (In search of the Jaguar) and then put together a private tour of Brazil from Florianopolis to Natal including Rio de Janeiro, Curitiba, Ilha do Mel, Salvador, Praia do Forte, Joao Pessoa and Natal. (We had been to the Iguazu Falls before so didn't go there.). Everything went off without a hitch. All the guides were very friendly and Knowledgeable. Jody did a great job and we returned home with many happy memories.

Above and Beyond Service


Reviewed on: 03 Dec 2015

When planning a trip to Africa Jody recommended a tour with Kiboko Tours. She was able to find us good flights that didn't break the bank, and the tour was all she said it would be and more! E-mails are always answered promptly, and she is always available by phone. I will not hesitate to use Jody again when planning our vacation adventures.

Professional Friendly Advisor

Jody is very easy to deal with. She is prompt and professional. I like how she has good follow-up by emailing me information and calling me when I request so. It's been a long time since I have used a travel advisor of any sort, but after dealing with Jody, I may decide to ask for her expert advice for our next travels. Thanks, Jody!

Jody was a great help to us when planning our trip. She gather information for us, answered our questions promptly and ensured that we were well informed in making our decision to travel with Kiboko to Africa. She was very flexible helping us where we needed help and allowing us to do some things on our own at our request. All of the arrangements that Jody made for us worked out very well. I would be happy to work with Jody again in planning a vacation.

Viterbo to Rome Pilgrimage PLUS

By: BarryD

Reviewed on: 13 Nov 2016

The overall trip was good and well organized. The initial portion in Conversano was a great way to start. The Altavista hotel was exceptional. Hard to find and parking could Air conditioner that was noisy and didn't work. Keeping windows / doors to the deck open meant we were kept awake by dogs barking most of the night. No food in the hotel. This was a hot time of year with the temp up to 35 - 39 degrees C. The beers at the days end was welcome. I found the maps and directions very poorly done. The first day of the walk we missed a turn and added another 10 km to a 16 km walk. Another day the description was so poor after 30 minutes we gave up, opened up Google maps and walked 3k on a nearby highway to reconnect to the trail. Several days in Rome with friends was fun. Saw the pope. I am sure he waved and welcomed us to Rome. England was great. I enjoyed the lake country walks. London was fun and the hotel incredible.

Japan and Hong Kong Tour

By: John in Surrey

Reviewed on: 14 Nov 2016

Vision Travel (Karen) looked after our travel arrangements for a tour of Japan and Hong Kong with Intrepid Tours for the Japan leg of the trip. We were well looked after in bookings and confirmation of flights, hotels, tour details and have used Vision and Judy of Vision previously for tours of New Zealand and Australia.

Jody is easy to deal with, is courteous and returns calls when contacted. She was effective in helping us plan trips to New Zealand, Japan ( @ X) and Australia. We will continue to use Jody to book our adventure travel tours and our airfares and hotels.

Jody was a help in clarifying my many travel options, but I was not aware of two weeks of school holiday while I was travelling. (If I had been aware, I likely would have been diligent in booking some accommodations earlier, or possibly changed the dates of my travel). Renting the car ourselves and booking hotel accomodation ourselves saved us a lot of money. As I will stay in hostels (private room) or lower budget accommodations, I likely need to bypass an agent.

Antarctica and Chile

By: Don & Carol

It was great working with Jody. She spent time with us getting to know what type of holiday we liked and what our interests were. She then suggested various options and after we were satisfied, put together a great trip. Everything went of like clockwork.

I have been using Jody to book travel throughout the years. Once the decision to go to Antartica was made she was quick to provide a few choices and helpful advise to make my decision. Any questions were answered quickly. Once the decision to book with One Ocean it was a quick and seamless process. I would reccommend Jody to anyone and will most deffinetly book with her in the future.

Asia travels

Jody is a very professional and detail oriented advisor. For instance, she spotted the need of having a Vietnam visa because I had to pick up my checked bag in Hanoi before checking in for a flight to Laos. Because she is well travelled herself she often has itinerary ideas for countries I want to visit. She is always prompt is getting back to me plus she has a delightful personality!
