I have a love of good food and wine, enjoy photography, have often been labelled a seasoned shopper, and seek out and enjoy the finer things in life.
For forty plus years (bitten by the travel bug on my OE), I have traveled as a traveller and a tourist; and as tour escort while representing airlines and promoting a number of destinations.
I am now looking forward to helping others enjoy what this wonderful world of ours has to offer.
Seventeen years promoting and experiencing Malaysia in my role as NZ Sales Manager for Malaysia Airlines, in conjunction with the Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board. Six years promoting Singapore with Singapore Airlines; regular visits to Thailand most years since 1990; have just recently returned from an extended stay in New York.
Over the years, on business and with my family, I have enjoyed considerable time in various parts of Asia, Australia, USA, UK and Europe, The Maldives, Pacific Islands.
Even when the unexpected happened and I ended up with broken bones the day before flying, it was not a problem for Richard to jump into action and rebook all the necessary flights. Richard is easy to get in touch with, always happy to help and attention to detail is outstanding.
We will be calling Richard every time we travel as he is great to work with.
The first was an around the world trip from June until October. The fare was researched to obtain the best value, extras, and good seating. I had to change dates and destinations whilst in the middle of the trip and Richard handled this with the minimum of fuss and cost to me.
The second trip was on Richard’s recommendation to fly Emirates A380 800 first class suite AKL/BNE return. Richard got me a hell of a deal and even advised which wines/champagne.
I was to be poured in the lounge and then again on the plane. This trip was a real treat and has spoiled me forever.
Richard and his wife Clare seemed to enjoy it almost as much as I did.
