My sense of adventure and love of nature had me heading off early in my 20's to backpack through Asia for 12 months. Years later as a Qantas flight attendant ('hostie' in those days) I discovered the delights of shopping and sightseeing in the world's most cosmopolitan cities while enjoying the comfort of 5 star luxury hotels. Now, Europe's cobblestone streets and waterways lead me to further explore and discover ancient towns, castles and forests. Over my career I enjoyed many varied roles including working on aircraft and at airports, retail travel centres, travel agency owner and now an online Tour Consultant with Global Journeys.

Fun Fact!

One of my favourite things to do in a new destination is eat! I enjoy trying different cuisines of the countries I am visiting and of course this includes sampling the regional brews, beers and wines. I usually come home with new recipe ideas and inspired to cook!

After a recent visit to Prague my favourite dish to cook is smoky beef goulash with dumplings - to wash down with jugs of dark beer!
