Concierge & Sales Support

I’ve been part of the travel industry for over 20 years and I’m lucky that work has taken me all over the world from Paris to Reykjavik, Dublin to Lisbon. Mixing business and pleasure is always fun – and a great way to get to see more of the world.

When I really want to relax, I spend time with my family. Luckily for me, I have family in Antigua! It’s a beautiful part of the world with so many gorgeous beaches where you can find secluded bliss. By night, it’s fun to find live music or a calypso party.

The world is a big place, but here are a few of my favourite spots.

  • Marrakech

    Marrakech is one of my favourite holiday destinations. I recommend staying in the centre of the city -it’s amazing to be in the middle of everything near the atmospheric souk, shady gardens and buzzy Jemaa el-Fnaa. The experience of shopping is great fun. Learn to barter and know when to say no!

    I enjoyed the old architecture and scenery, and the amazing Fantasia traditional Moroccan lamb dinner with a cultural show afterwards was a great experience.  Watching the skilled horsemanship and admiring the cultural dress really brought Moroccan history to life.

  • Chicago

    I was lucky enough to visit Chicago for work and I enjoyed it so much, I ended up extending my trip to spend more time there. The city has a laid back vibe and is great for exploring on foot, I even saw Barack Obama’s house.

    Again, I was in awe of the architecture and the abundance of shopping opportunities, the night life was amazing too. From jazz bars to Irish Tavern’s, Chicago seemed to have everything! The food was delicious too, grab a hot dog from Portillo’s.

  • New York

    What can you say about the Big Apple? I’ve been lucky to have visited a few times now and still find something new every time I go back. Having grown up watching American programs like most people, seeing the city in the flesh was very awe-inspiring!

    From the tall buildings to the steam coming out of the man holes, it’s just like being in a TV show. I love the shopping in the city as well as the sightseeing. I always go on the Staten Island Ferry, where you go very close to the Statue of Liberty – such an iconic sight.

  • Rhodes

    I went to Rhodes a couple of years ago. I have always been fascinated by history and Rhodes has a lot to see, from ancient ruins to the old town. There are a lot of excursions you can take too, or you can get out on the water on a kayak or boat trip.

    However, I was really drawn to the gorgeous beaches. One of the best beaches on the island is Lindos, where the water is very calm. Afterwards it’s lovely to enjoy a glass of wine and whitebait in one of the many picturesque fishing villages.

Best travel experience

As I’ve been lucky enough to go Antigua many times, where my family originate from, I often feel like here is where I have some of my most enjoyable travel experiences. It may not be one of the biggest islands, but there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be for a relaxed beach day, reading a book and sipping a cold drink. I like that there is still some history to discover from the museum in St Johns, the capital city to Betty’s Hope or Devils Bridge. You can also enjoy a typical calypso night out on a Sunday at Shirley Height’s where you always have a good time!
