Why do I love being a Travel Consultant?

I love when Members get excited when I talk about my experience in a destination, which makes them more eager to experience that destination for themselves. Travel consulting is a very rewarding job!

My top travel picks.

I love seeing the world and have seen a lot of it, sometimes even returning to the same places many times. I cherish the memories of the places I’ve been and the times spent there. Here are some of my top travel picks.

  • Newfoundland, Canada Newfoundland, Canada
  • Honolulu, Hawaii Honolulu, Hawaii
  • Banff, Alberta Banff, Alberta, Canada

Newfoundland.

Canada

I love Newfoundland and think it is an underrated travel destination. The scenery on the east coast is astonishingly beautiful, and there is abundant wildlife, fascinating history and warm hospitality. Go whale watching, hiking or just relax by the ocean. A must see is Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Insider tip: They say Newfoundland weather can cycle through all the seasons in a day. Pack layers so you can pile on and take off clothing as required.

Honolulu.

Hawaii

The Hawaiian culture and scenery is so unlike North America that it has to be experienced to be believed. Absolutely breathtaking! There are many islands from which to choose and Oahu is my top choice. Diamond Head crater is an iconic spot for capturing great photos of the coastline of Honolulu and Waikiki. Visit the Polynesian Cultural Centre to be immersed in the South Pacific lifestyle and take part in the best luau in all of Hawaii.

Insider tip: Climb Diamond Head for views of the area and say you were in a volcanic crater that’s 300,000 years old!

Banff, Alberta.

Canada

If you love mountains, you have to visit Alberta. Alberta has incredible skiing, wonderful hot springs, cruises and, of course, Banff National Park to explore. Banff is such a scenic town with the Rockies as a beautiful backdrop. Lake Louise is equally stunning and a charming town. It’s known for an easy hike around the lake, canoeing and horseback riding.

Insider tip: Ride the Lake Louise Gondola to a peak of 2,101 metres. You may spot grizzly bears on the way, and at the top you can visit the Wildlife Interpretive Centre and dine at the Whitehorn Bistro.
