SophieTravel Specialist at the Inspiring Travel Company
My love for travel started at a very early age. My first memories of a family holiday was when I was 6-years-old in Mallorca; my mum still tells the story of how I cried all the way home on the plane, and how I was devastated at the end of every holiday as a child thereafter!
As soon as I was old enough I applied to be a Holiday Representative. I spent three years working in the Algarve. For me there is no better industry to work in…everyone loves holidays! When I returned to the UK 12 years ago I continued my career in the travel industry and began booking all kinds of holidays from breaks in the UK to around the world cruises.
I've gained lots of knowledge of the industry from both sides, having been both in resort and arranging holidays from the UK. I get a great sense of satisfaction from arranging peoples dream holidays and helping clients make memories that will stay with them forever. I like to treat every client’s holiday with the same love and attention as I treat my own holidays and they are very important to me.
I had an amazing time in St Lucia on a trip there recently; it really was the most beautiful destination I have ever visited, from crystal clear waters, and super soft sandy beaches to the contrasting luscious green Pitons. I was fortunate to experience helicopter transfers, speed boat trips and a stay at some stunning hotels like Jade Mountain - which is out of this world.
My favourite place to holiday is Las Vegas - I absolutely love it! It’s so much fun, you can spend days around the pool or visiting amazing sights like the Grand Canyon and the evenings are spent either in the casinos or at a show. There is so much to see and do there I don’t think I will ever get bored of visiting.
Don’t forget your adapter! Every time I go away I always forget then have to buy a new one at the airport. I now have a drawer full of adapters!
Try and learn a bit of the local lingo! I think it’s nice to say thank you and hello in the native tongue of where you’re visiting and locals like it too.
