Visiting “Mexico and Cuba” for the first time in 2018 was interesting, colourful and exciting.  From the Mesoamerican ruins of Teotihuacan near Mexico City to the Mayan site of Chihen Itza, to the colourful houses and vintage cars of Cuba and everything in between, this was an amazing experience.  A visit to Cuba is like stepping back in time but it also serves as a lesson to not take our way of life and our easy access to basic commodities for granted. The people are friendly, the food amazing and the history mind-blowing.

Our first ever “Laos and Myanmar” tour was an amazing adventure and exceeded all expectations. Both countries are fascinating destinations and so diverse in culture and history.  Laos and Myanmar have much to offer to both experienced and novice travellers.  If you’re thinking of travelling to Asia but don’t want the madness that the more common places are known for, try Laos and Myanmar.

What an amazing experience it was touring St. Petersburg in Russia and throughout Scandinavia with our 2016 “Scandinavia and Beyond” group of girls.  If you have ever thought of doing the Hurtigruten Coastal Norway cruise, just do it, it’s spectacular!  Full of natural beauty, ancient history, beautiful architecture and friendly people, Scandinavia has lots to offer.  Check out the 2016 Scandinavia album on our Facebook page or in the gallery here on our website for photos from this beautiful tour.

In February 2019, we returned to the ‘Great White Continent’ once more for the 3rd time as part of our “Antarctica & Galapagos” tour.  We got up close and personal with penguins, whales, sea lions and other sea creatures in Antarctica as well as swimming with the turtles, penguins and sea lions in the beautiful Galapagos and saw many creatures that are distinctive to this area.  What a privilege to experience both of these unique places.  In January 2022 we joined Chimu Adventures for a unique experience as we flew over The Great White Continent as part of our “Antarctica Day Flight and SEQ Getaway”.   Check out the photo gallery on Facebook and contact me on if you’d like more details.

We continue to add new destinations to our touring calendar for you our clients and would love to hear from you with your ‘Travel Wish List’.  My ‘girls’ and I, have now travelled to over 62 countries together, building great memories and in many cases lasting friendships. Check out the amazing photos from Antarctica and Galapagos and other trips on our Facebook Page.

Ever dreamed of travelling to exotic faraway places like Egypt, Morocco, Croatia, Mexico, Iceland, France, Italy? Do you wonder what it might be like to watch the sunset in Santorini in Greece, to shop till you drop in Vietnam, to walk the majestic gorges of The Kimberley in WA, travel the Silk Road or visit the Eiffel Tower?
