the travel industry’s highest proficiency rating. These many years of service have enabled me to work in virtually every aspect of the travel industry.

Recently, my top selling locations have been Africa, Italy and the Antarctic. But only 3-5 years ago I was immersed in South East Asia, Russia, India and South America.
