I love that quote and if that is how you’re feeling then you’ve come to the right person…. Hello! My name is Nicola and I would be delighted to help create, design and tailor make your next adventure.
I feel very lucky and privileged to have had both the experience of living abroad as an expat and to have travelled extensively. My younger years were spent growing up in Abu Dhabi, Anchorage and San Francisco.
Working for Virgin Atlantic, meant I was able to indulge in my passion for travel! Flying to numerous cities around the world each week such as Hong Kong, Delhi, Tokyo, New York, Sydney and Cape Town enabled me
to sample the joys of different cultures and taste new flavours of diverse cuisines. I then met and married my husband and have called Dubai home for the last 13 years. Dubai is in a great location with so many exciting countries right on our doorstep that you’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding where to go……this is where I come in!
Researching and planning a holiday is my true passion and I know that with my knowledge and my extensive travel expertise I will tailor your holiday dream and make it a reality. I also believe that it is important to
build a strong relationship with YOU my customer, be that by personal appointment, telephone or online.

When people talk about Australia nobody talks about Perth, it’s like it is the forgotten city out there on the West Coast! And if I’m being truly honest I was one of those people, always raving about the good food in Melbourne the vibrant city of Sydney and the chilled out vibe in Brisbane….. well let me tell you after our recent trip to Perth I can’t wait to go back and explore even more of the beautiful Western Coast of Australia. We flew down on the direct Emirates flight into Perth, yes, it was brutal setting off for the...

We had three days to make the most of what the Margaret River region had to offer and so off we set to explore the region. We found ourselves on Caves Road which we soon found out was aptly named due to all the caves in the area and so we pulled in to see Mammoth Caves. These caves are self guided by means of listening to a pre recorded audio tape explanation are you walk amongst all the stalagmites and stalactites. It was quite breath taking especially when we saw a 50,000 year old fossil of a zygomaturus jawbone...

We have just got back from the best skiing holiday in Lech and l can’t wait to start planning next year’s! Lech is a beautiful Austrian town 2 hours and 120 miles from Zurich Airport. So, after a quick night stop in Zurich, we had a private transfer up the mountain to Lech. The service was great as it was door to door and a turn key solution, we wouldn’t need a car whilst we were skiing in Lech. The car was a large Mercedes minivan which accommodated 4 adults 3 children, our huge amount of luggage and as prearranged...

I couldn’t pack quick enough for our upcoming and much anticipated Fijian holiday. Fiji has been on the top of my bucket list ever since I first saw glossy photos of beautiful islands surrounded by crystal clear turquoise water in the Conde Nast Traveler many many years ago! I can happily say that whilst I write this, sitting on my sun lounger, white sand at my feet and gazing out upon never ending green and blue water that no amount of words or photos will ever do it justice, I can honestly say that Fiji hasn’t disappointed. Yes it was...

Our brief holiday in Dubai at the new Jebel Ali Lakes View Hotel was made all the more enjoyable by Nicola's expertise and patience. Slight medical hiccoughs meant last minute adjustments which were handled extremely competently by Nicola. Her knowledge and good nature made all the difference. The hotel is very impressive, the rooms large and comfortable, the facilities offered in the resort comprehensive and the staff helpful and very friendly. There was a problem with food not being kept hot enough but this improved after we complained. Would definitely stay there again

I had no idea where to start with planning a holiday to Vietnam, so I was delighted when Nicola proposed Hanoi (direct flight from Dubai with Emirates) and Halong Bay for a five night trip. She researched hotels and proposed a safe, beautifully appointed property in the heart of Hanoi's old town. She also arranged for the hotel to send a driver - we discovered how important it was to book ahead to avoid some of the scam-driven hostels you might be presented with at the airport! Nicola also booked us a two night/three day cruise around Halong Bay, in the North of Vietnam. Once again, all arrangements were perfectly taken care of including the transfer and we had a wonderful time, looked after by all the staff on board. I had mentioned to Nicola that I might like to run in Hanoi and she even researched a couple of fascinating running routes around Hanoi to give us a flavour of the city from a totally different perspective. This is just one example of the care and attention to detail that Nicola took in planning our Vietnam adventure, and which made it run so smoothly, freeing up our time to enjoy and absorb the fascinating culture, shopping and entertainment on offer. Nicola really added value to the trip, there's no way we'd have had such a relaxing, fun time without all her prior planning. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her as your Travel Counsellor.

Nicola is extremely professional, friendly, efficient and clearly very well travelled. Nothing is too much trouble and she has given us some amazing advise especially with our family skiing holidays. Nicola really understood our needs from the very first time we met her and have recommended her to many friends since as a result. She is always quick to respond and goes the extra mile to stick to our budget. Thank you for everything
