My favorite place to travel is without a doubt Australia, my passion started in 1994 with my first trip down under which subsequently led me to moving there to live for a year as part of a working holiday visa. Australia is known as the "happy country" and the outdoor lifestyle, dramatic landscapes and friendly people are something to behold.

My favorite place to travel is New Zealand. The landscape and scenery change dramatically in a short period, just pick up a rental car and hit the road. My favorite area would be the rugged west coast of the South Island where all the elements of nature are on display. Only one road, north and south, no need for a GPS here...

My best travel tip as I’m not a great sleeper on flights in general but instead of dreading all those hours on a plane, I try to think of the positives; I can have a glass (or 2) of wine, watch a good movie and let myself get tired naturally instead of trying to force myself to sleep.

My favorite destination we sell is Tasmania, a lot of people forget this little Australian island, however it is fantastic with great food, wine, lots of Australian History and beautiful scenery. It’s very laid back and you can see all of the Australian wildlife including the Tasmanian Devil.

My favorite destination we sell is a tough one – I've always had a soft spot for Fiji. Once you get out to the islands, it is truly paradise. The locals are so genuinely friendly and always greet you with a smile and "Bula" (Fijian for hello and several other meanings)

My favorite destination we sell is Australia – the entire country. It’s such a beautiful country, it’s my homeland and there are so many special unique experiences. Personally, I love the Tiwi islands just off the top end of Darwin. You take a small plane out of Darwin and over the strait to do a day trip to the islands. It’s such a great experience

My favorite place to travel is Australia! Having lived in Sydney, I truly think it’s one of the most amazing countries. My favorite thing about the destination is the diversity of landscapes. You have cities, mountains, beaches (that's just in Sydney), wine, wildlife, culture and more!.

My favorite destination we sell is Queenstown, New Zealand and nearby Milford Sound. The landscape is stunning – high alpine peaks, pristine glacial lakes, and, best of all, you can see penguins at Milford Sound!.
