Why do I love being a Travel Consultant?

This was always my dream job, so after spending 26 years as a nurse, I went back to college to pursue my new career. It’s exciting to help customers plan their vacations. Many of them have dreamed for years about taking an ultimate trip somewhere and I get to help them finally make it happen.

Alaska.

USA

Alaska is one of my favourite places in the world. You can see whales and glaciers up-close, visit frontier towns and native villages, and go to a salmon bake. It's truly the last frontier – and you'll feel like an explorer!

Insider tip: Take the White Pass Summit excursion. You get to ride the rails in a vintage coach through tunnels, over sky-high trestles, up mountains and into remote valleys. It's an unforgettable ride.

New Orleans.

USA

For the food, the music and the nightlife, New Orleans is like no other city in the US. Beyond the legendary Mardi Gras celebration, there are festivities and events taking place all year round. With its fascinating history and architecture, friendly people and lively atmosphere, New Orleans should be on your must-visit list.

Insider tip: Take a day trip out of the city for a swamp tour. The Louisiana landscape is something to see with swamps and bayous filled with countless species of birds, fish, mammals and reptiles – including alligators.

Hawaii.

USA

I would go back to Hawaii in a heartbeat. These beautiful islands are home to famous beaches, towering waterfalls, active volcanoes and the famous Hawaiian culture. That aloha spirit welcomes you to these lovely shores and stays with you long after you leave.

Insider tip: Don't take the volcanic rocks home with you as souvenirs. The locals say that the spirit, Pele, will curse anyone who carries off a piece of the island – giving them bad luck until the rocks are returned.
