With 22 years experience, Kirsty’s knowledge and experience of the world’s travel destinations is extensive. Passing this knowledge and experience on to her clients is her passion. Vietnam, Tahiti and Cape York are among favourite places. Trekking the mountains of North Vietnam, walking on Franz Josef glacier in New Zealand, are highlights. Her most treasured travel experience was being able to take her WWII veteran Grandfather back to Papua New Guinea. In recent years, seeing the world through the eyes of her child has been extremely rewarding, and given travel a whole new dimension.
