I'm Stephanie, or Steph to everyone except my Mum! And I would like to personally welcome you to my website; which I hope will become a regular port of call for you.


I've worked in the Travel Industry for over 20 years and I guess you could say that travel is my passion.


I love the thrill when my clients call me with their holiday enquiry and I get to put together the perfect holiday for them. That 7 or 14 night trip to the sunshine is one of the biggest investments that most families make each year, and it just HAS to be right!! You work hard for the money, right? I treat every holiday as though I'm planning my own, making sure that everything is included and all the arrangements run smoothly, so there's nothing to worry about. I love researching a new area and making sure that the trip includes something for everyone in the family or group..


 


When our daughter Terri was born 24 years ago, my Husband and I made a decision that shaped all our futures. We decided that she wouldn't remember the colour of our carpet, or whether we had the latest TV or the flashiest car in the street, but she would ALWAYS remember the memories that we created together.


That proved to be so true, so much so that after leaving school she had the bug and she began working in the Travel Industry.


 


We've been to some fantastic places and had some AMAZING experiences. I've seen most of Europe as well as Mexico, Florida (MANY times!!) Lapland, Jamaica, Namibia, Dubai and Thailand, to name a few.


We spent Terri's 21st Birthday in Las Vegas, taking a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, but the one place we go back to time and again (think we are 13 visits so far) is Cuba.


The history, the culture and the people are amazing. Driving down The Malecon in Havana in a 1950's American car is an amazing experience. Add in the fantastic powder white beaches and salsa music coming from around every corner...and the rum!! What's not to like? I've seen most of the island and can advise about everything from which bar does the best Mojito, to which beach would look best in your wedding photos!


 


I always make a point of leaving the tourist trail, when on holiday, I love spending time with the local people and finding out more about the country I'm visiting.  


 


I often spend time during my own holidays looking around hotels and checking out facilities for my customers. I've stayed in some top notch hotels whilst travelling with my business and have contacts in hotels around the world, as well as I lots of personal contacts in Cuba.


 


As I run my own business through Mid-counties Co-operative you get the added security of working with a long-standing and ethical brand who is fully ABTA and ATOL bonded for your security and peace of mind. Not only that but we also offer a great loyalty scheme, whereby you sign up for your share-holding membership and are able to use this each and every time you book through me accumulating points that convert into pounds that can then come back into your pocket; a little thank you for your loyalty and support. 

My last holiday was...

In November last year I was lucky enough to travel on our Company's Annual rewards trip Chill VIP. We spent a week in Thailand, a place that I had never visited before, but will definitely go back to.

We split the week between Khao Lak and Phuket and did some FAB excursions, river rafting, an Elephant Sanctuary, we even spent the day on a luxury yacht and did canoeing before visiting James Bond Island!

My next holiday is...

I was due to travel to Hisaronu in Turkey at the beginning of May, but COVID 19 put an end to that!! So I don't currently have anything booked.

When air travel opens again I will be booking a week in Ibiza to visit an old Cuban friend who now runs a bar on the island and probably a couple of weeks in Thailand, so the family get to visit as well.

Really love the look of an offer I have for a private villa on the island of Koh Samui…..

My dream holiday is...

I would love to visit Australia. I want to see the Sydney Opera House, don't think I'd be brave enough to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge though.

Then I'd like to hire a campervan and drive up the cost to Cairns. I'd probably spend a few days in Singapore on the way home as doing it on the way out makes the jet-lag worse.
