About Sarah

Beautiful Santorini Sunset in Oia. Get there early if you want a good seat though!

Your Personal Travel Consultant

Welcome to my story

I started my travel journey as far back as being a young child when I first travelled abroad, aged I think about 12 years old!  Prior to this myself and my parents always holidayed right here in the UK, and visited many caravan parks and of course the Las Vegas of Lancashire, the one and only Blackpool!

My first experience of abroad came with Ibiza, where we stayed in the beautiful village of Santa Eulalia.  For my first time abroad it was a fantastic holiday and something of which I have treasured memories. 

After that many family holidays followed to destinations such as two further trips back to Ibiza, and two to Rhodes.

Once travelling as an adult I have been lucky enough to visit so many places including: 

  • Greek Islands - Rhodes (again!), Kos, Halkidiki, Santorini, Symi, Nisyros.
  • Canaries - Lanzarote, Tenerife and Gran Canaria
  • Costa Del Sol, Costa Brava, Costa De La Luz
  • Egypt - Sharm El Sheikh, Taba Heights
  • Portugal - Algarve
  • Israel - Eilat
  • Jordan
  • Malta & Gozo
  • USA - South Carolina and Florida
  • Barbados
  • Thailand and Malaysia
  • UAE - Dubai and Abu Dhabi

Still on my wishlist!

  • Maldives
  • Maritius
  • New York
  • Australia

It's been fascinating to visit all these different places and see different cultures.  

For example say Kalimera in Greek and you are saying "Good Morning", or try ef̱charistó̱ which means "Thank you".  The locals LOVE if you try their language and don't be surprised if a glass of the local tipple "Ouzo" comes out but be warned drink in sips as its a little strong! (as my husband found out on our recent trip)

Using my years of experience I am able to find the perfect trip for my customers who turn into friends!  Its not just a case of booking your holiday, I am with you before to guide you through the best options, the booking process itself, and even after booking if you have any questions, I am here to help!

I can also do Zoom, Teams or Facetime calls to discuss your plans face to face so to speak or if you are in the Preston postcode, I am also happy to do home visits to discuss any plans in person.

I am not a shop that shuts at 5pm, as your Personal Travel Consultant I am here to help at any time, with my mobile and freephone number. 

If you just have an idea at this point of what you THINK you want to do, let us turn your dreams into reality, with our hundreds of trusted suppliers.

As well as general travel, one of the things I love is organising weddings/honeymoons.  Its a privilege to be involved with this magical time, and I do go the extra mile for clients by contacting hotels directly with any requests, and upgrades where it is possible.

Personal service is what it is all about for me, and making sure that my travellers are happy!
