Favourite Travel Experience

Impossible to isolate one fave, but standout moments include the red hot African sunrise, whilst witnessing a lion kill on Safari in South Africa, birth of an elephant in Botswana, swimming with majestic whale sharks at Ningaloo reef, watching the electrical storm on the first day of the seasonal change from dry to wet at Uluru and seeing mother nature at her best in the Rocky Mountains.

About me

Born in Glasgow, Scotland to parents of Scottish and Burmese Indian Heritage, raised in Vancouver, Canada and now settled in Melbourne. Happily married for 26 years to my Aussie husband whom I met in Crete, Greece. We are raising three children and sharing with them our love of travel and multiculturalism. My parents own love of travel is where my passion began. By the time I was 14 I had been to India, Scotland, England, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Bermuda, Bahamas, Hawaii, Mexico & the West Coast of the USA. After finishing my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of British Columbia, I set off for an intended 12 months of travel before returning to further study. That 12 months turned into 4 years! After working, living and travelling through Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Scotland, Israel, Egypt, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore I found myself in Melbourne working as a Travel Consultant and travelling further to Tahiti, New York, Fiji and Bali. In the last year two years (2017/18) I have now travelled to Eastern Canada (Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec), West Coast Canada to Vancouver Island for some Salmon fishing, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Broome.

On My Travel Radar

Burma (Myanmar), India, Cuba, The Galapagos including other parts of South America, a return trip back to Portugal, Spain and Scotland (especially for Hogmanay).
