Why do I love being a Travel Consultant?
I get to help people plan their vacations - how fun is that! For me, it’s about getting to know the preferences, interests and expectations of my clients so I can best customize all the details of their trip.
Personally, I like to travel for all kinds of reasons – to relax, to explore and sometimes a little of both. Seeing the world has further enriched my love of music and food. Since my daughter has very similar tastes, we toured France and England together a few years ago and took in as many of the sights, sounds and tastes as we possibly could. It was an amazing trip and I’ll always treasure the memories we made together.
My top travel picks.
Sharing photos and memories from past trips is a great way to get you thinking about your next adventure. Scroll through some of my favourites below! If they inspire you to start thinking about your next trip, give me a call – I’ll be happy to help plan your next getaway.
Père Lachaise Cemetery.
Père Lachaise Cemetery is the largest in Paris and well worth the visit - especially if you want a break from the noise and crowds. It’s the final resting place of many famous celebrities like Édith Piaf, Oscar Wilde, Chopin and Jim Morrison.
Insider tip: Very practical walking shoes are a must if you visit the cemetery, like many parts of Paris, it is paved uneven cobblestones throughout.
The Cavern Club.
If you love music, particularly The Beatles, you cannot see Liverpool without visiting the club where it all began – the Cavern Club. Shop for great retro souvenirs and book an overnight stay just a few steps away at the Hard Days Night Beatles themed hotel.
Insider tip: Another great Liverpool must-see is “The Beatles Story” at the Albert Dock. Journey through the lives of The Beatles by viewing decades of fascinating memorabilia.
Interestingly, an exotic Indonesian Rijsttafel is a culinary experience not be missed when one is in Amsterdam. Dutch for “rice table”, you’ll be presented with a colourful variety of dishes from the Indonesian islands (which were heavily colonized by the Dutch in the twentieth century).
Insider tip: Indonesian Rijsttafel meals are perfect for groups and you’ll find numerous restaurants that specialize in this dish throughout Amsterdam.
