It is hard to pick but I'd have to say my absolute favourite holiday is a European river cruise, closely followed by Switzerland by train.
My dream holiday would be the Galapagos Islands – they have such amazing wildlife and exotic animals. Very different to my usual choices!
My first love is gardening, and of course travelling – I'm in the right job for that! I also love walking my dog Missy the border collie.
40+ years of experience.
The Cook Island was so lovely and peaceful. Down to earth and relaxed, it is an amazing place to recharge and unwind.
Club Med Malaysia is on my list, as is anything active or hands on like an Active River Cruise or a family, cycle or food tour with Intrepid.
I love spending time with family and friends, cooking, quilting, and bike riding. I lift Kettlebells and compete as well.
12 years of experience.
It’s a tie between Hawaii or going on a Princess Cruise. I love a flop and drop holiday, tanning, a good book, drink in hand and I’m set.
New York! I want to stand underneath the Statue of Liberty, eat a giant pizza in Brooklyn and buy myself a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes.
Walking my dog Hugo the Dalmatian. Socialising with friends and family. A spot of shopping or the gym. Living on a farm always keeps me busy.
11 years of experience.
Motorcycle riding through Vietnam with my Mum and sister was amazing. I try to have a unique experience on every trip that I take.
Antarctica. Why not! For something a little warmer, we’re taking the kids on a road trip to the Gold Coast - like we did when we were little.
Catching up on Netflix after the kids have gone to bed and everything is quiet. Any down-time is appreciated.
8 years of experience.
Pacific Island cruise is high on my list. I love to be out on deck with unlimited options of food, drink and entertainment.
Road tripping along the historic Route 66 in a Mustang or Camaro would be a dream come true! The iconic American road trip.
Playing netball for a country club and spending time in the shed with my partner working on his many pride and joys.
3 years, trained on the job, trained by the best.
