Favourite holiday destination: Vietnam for the amazing mix of scenery, food and the rich history. Vietnam is so diverse, you can be on a beautiful white sand beach and then trekking through a jungle within a couple of hours. Vietnam has something to suit every budget too, it is backpacker friendly and easily accessible but also perfect for those in search of some affordable luxury.
Favourite accommodation: Paradise Cove in Mauritus. It is a boutique hotel which I prefer compared to huge hotel chains and the setting was just beautiful. Mauritian food is also amazing, we ate freshly caught seafood every day and spent the days either sunbathing and drinking cocktails, or trying all of the water sports on offer.
Dream round the world itinerary: This changes all the time as I try not to visit the same place twice. Currently I like the sound of flying out to Japan during the ski season. I have a friend who worked out there during the winter and the skiing looks incredible. I’d then head to Tahiti for my luxury part of the journey and stay in an amazing over water bungalow and laze around for a week before flying across to Canada where I’d travel across the country by train. If I could somehow incorporate Bhutan into this I’d do that too!
Expert tip: This is generally quite simple, most of our customers have never done a round the world trip before and simply don’t know about all of the amazing round the world ticket options we have available. Rather than simply mirroring what they might have come across online or copying what their neighbour did, we can have a really good chat to find out which destinations they have always dreamt of visiting and then work them into a round the world ticket.
