A bit about me

Born in Europe and moved to Australia at the age of 17. I had spent the past 25 years working in the Australian and South Pacific travel industry running a few companies including Australian Travel Club and creating the most unforgettable experiences for visitors to our beautiful region.

‘I live and breathe travel. Travel is my passion and way of life.’

Art of Travel

Yes – to me planning travel is and art. Travel grew into a strong passion of mine. Over the years, planning travel and travelling has become not only my profession, but a way of living my life. Travel brings power and love back to your life – Rumi

My passion is to create a unique experiences and take you on the journey with me. When I travel I become empowered, ready for something new and it’s just simply broadens my horizons. I love to explore new adventures and love to live each day to the fullest.

My moto is to share this with my readers and to connect with people from around the world & showcase most stunning places and create unforgettable memories.

I had travelled in many different ways –solo, with my lovely daughters, hubby and family. I had travelled on a budget or luxury, flying on private jets with clients, cruising on private boats in Great Barrier Reef or flying in the helicopters in the most stunning New Zealand wilderness. Through my 20 + years of experiences I looked after most discerning and interesting clients and created the most extraordinary itineraries and travel suggestions for my clients and friends.

The Journal / Blog

I had kept a lot of travel notes from my trips and had been emailing and sharing them with friends and family.

For years my friends been begging me to make suggestions for them, plan their trips, and asking me to join on my trips.

This project had been in my heart for a very long time. It was my clients and friends who ‘pushed’ me to finally reunite me with my passion for travel and writing. After sharing my itineraries, ideas, places to visit and reviews with my friends and clients the final – JUST DO IT – was said by my 18 year old daughter – who is a passionate traveller/photographer just like her mommy.  Well, I am ready!!!!

Some things you will find I adore and want to share with you to make your trip unforgettable.

I have spent more time in beautiful destinations in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. You will find that I mainly focus on South Pacific region due to my extensive knowledge however I do put out occasional posts and notes from my travel abroad. I have a lot of experiences to share with you – family travel, romantic getaways, cultural and shopping, food and bars and of course life style in our part of the world.

Food and wine

O don’t get me started…..sampling food is such an integrated part of travel. Whenever I travel I try to sample as much as local food, visit restaurants and bars and get as much local flavour as I can. Travel, food and wine just go hand in hand. I had organised many restaurants for my clients and private functions and I will share some of my best kept secrets. While I will never claim to be a food writer (I will leave this to Matt Preston), I will occasionally put the recipes that I had found from my travel trips and thought they are a must to share. ‘You will be saying – I will have what she is having…’

Hopeless romantic

Yes that’s me. I hate everything ordinary and absolutely adore finding romance and something special in every-day life.

I had been asked to share my tips for organising a romantic date. Well, I had put together ideas, tips and suggestions for your special date. You might want to impress a special person in your life, or just don’t like ORDINARY things, or perhaps just no time to organise that special event. You will be able to also book experiences to make it easier for you.

Lifestyle

This is a tricky one.

Here I am posting about things that matter to me and like-minded people on the subject of wellness, yoga, meditation, fashion and of course and style.

‘’So if you want to visit Australia & New Zealand and find travel tips, great restaurants and bars, great family, romantic getaways or simply breaks or escape for a weekend or book a hot date…. join me on my journey’’ I will share my best tips and insights with you’.

Travel as much as you can and as long as you can and as far as you can. Life is not meant to be lived in one place.
