One of my favourite hobbies is gourmet cooking…which helps explain why I find nothing more satisfying than creating, from scratch, delicious and memorable luxury holidays worldwide.
My clientele tends to be very well travelled, discerning and appreciative of the very best. I bring to the table my 30+ years in the travel business, and extensive upscale travel experiences in Africa, Hong Kong, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, Europe and more. In all I’ve been to 42 countries.
As well as cooking I enjoy scuba diving, snow shoeing, golf, the ballet, wine and good times. My clients say they find me caring, outgoing – and a bit off the wall! (Must be my British sense of humour.) If you are looking for a travel advisor who shares your high standards, please contact me. I look forward to creating delectable getaways for you!
