Tell Us About Yourself

My love of travel started on my first solo overseas trip at age 21. I took the ‘right of passage’ that lots of young Aussies do – a European Contiki tour to explore all the famous landmarks that this incredible part of the world has to offer. With family living in England and also Hungary, Europe always draws me back – the scenery, the food, the history and the uniqueness of many different nationalities that cannot be matched anywhere else in the world.

I fell in love with cruising 20 years ago – my first cruise was in Asia, and it ignited my passion for exploring regions that are inaccessible to many. The highlights of my many cruises has been three Expedition Cruises – to the Kimberley, the Arctic and the Antarctic.

My travel must-do list is extensive but next on the list is Canada, Alaska, Turkey and Egypt.

What Is Your Favourite Travel Destination/ Experience & Why?

Definitely Antarctica! Incredible scenery, accessible wildlife and total isolation from the rest of the world. It is on most people’s ‘bucket list’ and rightly so. It is everything I dreamed of experiencing and so much more.
