My Top 3 Trips

Greece and Turkey

Greece and Turkey

October 2013

I visited Greece and Turkey, sailing with Azamara on the gorgeous all inclusive small ship, the Journey. I really enjoy the small ships (684 guests) that can get into the smaller ports. The Azamara crew offer excellent customer service, and the ship itself is beautifully decorated and laid out.


  • Private tour of Ephesus (a highlight of the cruise) and Athens.
  • All Inclusive Luxury cruising - no pushy selling on board!
  • "Azamazing Evenings" are very special, and included with your cruise

Ireland and North Ireland

Ireland and North Ireland

November 2012

Ireland is definitely called the "Emerald Isle" for a reason! I traveled for 7 nights on a premium coach tour with Insight Vacations. The coaches are extremely comfortable with many rest stops along the way. Touring is a great way to experience a country for the first time.....just sit back and leave the driving to the professionals.

Ireland is a country full of fun and friendly people.


  • Stay at Dromoland Castle (seen in photo)
  • Cliffs of Moher
  • Titanic Museum in Belfast
  • Private walking tour of Dublin



May 2014 and May 2015

France is one of my favourite destinations and I will return again in 2016! I have travelled to Strasbourg, Lyon, Albertville and of course Paris. I love to cook, so staying anywhere in France means I want accommodation with a great kitchen. There is so much to see and do in this wonderful country, that I have to return again and again.


  • Enjoy a picnic in the park.
  • Take a half day bus tour of the city you are visitng to see where you want to go back and explore.
  • Take a river cruise, there are so many areas to choose from.
