I started in Travel working for Thomson Holidays in London in the 70’s after working in publishing for 3 years.
This enabled me to travel to most holiday destinations in Europe at the time, with my first introduction to Italy having thrown a coin in the Trevi fountain it is true to say I keep going back.
When Glyn and I opened Getaway Travel it was a wonderful opportunity to work in an industry we both loved.
Choosing to run your own Travel Agency has its challengers but has always inspired me to offer our clients the personal experience and knowledge I have gained throughout the years.
Each year I escort small group holidays offering a door to door transfer service this is ideal for single people recently we cruised the Douro River and have previously been walking in Austria. Further afield Glyn and travelled with a group exploring Alaska and travelling on the Rocky Mountaineer.
As personal holidays go travelling around New Zealand in a camper van was one of the most enjoyable holidays with spectacular scenery but visiting South Africa riding on Elephants and being close up to a cheetah in the wilderness on safari was the most exciting.
Cruising has also played a big part in my travels to new destinations and my experience onboard Cruise Liners like the Queen Mary2 visiting New York and smaller ships like Fred Olsen and Silverseas have provided me with exciting discoveries.
On my bucket list is to visit the Galapagos Islands and travel to India, the world is a large place and there are always new places to visit.
