Kayaking in Halong Bay, quad biking in the Cambodian countryside, driving Tuscany for a dinner at a Michelin star village restaurant, climbing Adam’s Peak in Sri Lanka, boating around Capri, getting stuck in Beijing traffic, biking Ho Chi Minh, Vienna and Amsterdam, segwaying in Lisbon, savouring Parisian macarons at Laduree, trying Asian food from street stalls in Bangkok to its fancy Sirocco restaurant (yes the one in The Hangover 2!), celebrating mom’s birthday at the Moulin Rouge, attending a film premiere at the Istanbul Film Festival, getting a palm reading at the Mekong Delta...... These are just a few of the experiences I have been fortunate enough to have had so far.
As you can see, I love to travel and venture. This is one of the reasons I decided to drop out of a career of over a decade in hotels and do the one thing I am passionate about – making travel plans. “You’ve got to find what you love” Steve Jobs once said. I finally did!
Today, I am an Independent Travel Counsellor, assisting customers with their travel arrangements, full or partial, from flights to accommodation, transfers, insurances, tours, etc.
This is a unique concept in travel planning, one I am extremely excited to be part of. It takes the stress, hassle and worry out of researching your options. Why shop around or spend hours trawling the internet for the best deals, when I can do all the hunting for you? Why struggle to find time out of your busy working day/week to catch up with travel agents during strict opening hours, when I can be available evenings and week-ends? Why run the risk of repeating and missing details dealing with different agents, when you can work with one person?
Being independent, I offer both flexibility and impartiality as I have access to an award winning technology with many airlines, hotels and tour operators to pick and match from, while at the same time, not being bound by any. For your total peace of mind, all bookings I make are covered by the Travel Counsellors financial trust. Travel Counsellors is licensed in the UAE under tourism license 675183.
So if you are looking to book your next travels for a long week-end break, ski adventure, golf escape, family holiday, business trip, etc. and if you like the idea of having your own Travel Counsellor, either call me or contact me via email. I look forward to creating the perfect itinerary for you.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
I absolutely love travel! Take a look through my posts - you might find holiday inspiration where you least expect it...

An hour and a half away by bus from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh city, I had booked this day trip to My Tho the previous evening after having realized once again how little did I read about this country before boarding my flight to Asia. One of the pluses of traveling alone is that it is easy to be added to a tour even when you book late. They can always squeeze one more in. ‘It should be enough to get me a feel of the Mekong’, I thought, ‘until my next visit’. The mighty Mekong has...

My wife and I were very impressed with Anne-Marie's customer service from all aspects. Her level of enthusiasm and catering to the customer needs was phenomenal. She really spent great effort and time to find for us the honeymoon hotel that we just were looking for . We really liked the fact that she presented us with different offers and walked us very openly through the advantages and disadvantages off each hotel destination. She went the extra mile to arrange and negotiate extra honeymoon packages offered at the hotel free of charge.The whole experience off dealing with Anne-Marie was new to us and we definitely had a very good experience booking through a travel consultant. We will definitely recommend her to others and we will definitely pursue with her other vacations.
With independent access to hundreds of travel suppliers around the world, I can pick out exceptional offers with amazing added value. Take a look through my latest selections – but even if nothing catches your eye, let me know what you’re looking for and I’ll do my best to find it for you!
