I’ve been a Travelworld consultant for four years. What is the best thing about working as a travel consultant? I always enjoy sending people on their dream holidays! What sort of things do you like doing in your leisure time? I like outdoor things – rock climbing, camping, walking. What are some of your travel highlights? San Francisco is a vibrant and exciting city – and I loved doing a Contiki tour of New Zealand. South Pacific cruising is great – you can be as busy or as relaxed as you like. And your favourite travel destination? It would have to be the Greek island of Mykonos – I love the natural beauty and picturesque villages by day and the wild nightlife in the evenings. Why should our customers come and see you at RACT House? I spent three months travelling around Europe and I can help you with all your European travel needs. With great deals on touring and cruising and the strong dollar, come in and plan your 2011 holiday now or star t planning for 2012 and take advantage of some of the early booking deals! Cruising is about choosing! River cruising has emerged as one of the most popular holiday styles of the last decade. There are ships based on many rivers in many countries in the world – China, Vietnam, Egypt and Russia. But it is cr uising through the hear t of Europe’s water ways that has everyone excited. The traditional European river cruise is between Amsterdam and Budapest, taking 15 days in either direction, w ith many variations possible. With cr uising, there’s no need to worr y about map reading, road tolls, parking, petrol stations, where to eat and where to sleep. On a river cruise, you glide into the heart of the town, taking your home with you. Sometimes you cruise by night, to wake up in a new place; and sometimes you cruise by day, to watch the magnificent scener y slip by. All your meals, transport, accommodation, sightseeing, tipping and even some drinks are included in the one cruise fare, prepaid in Australian dollars. So when you’re planning your next holiday, consider cr uising – and to book your 2012 European river cr uise for 2011 pr ices, check the APT Superdeals section on page 58 and 59 of this issue of Journeys.
