I joined Travel Nation in 2014 after taking a few years off to raise my children. I went travelling after university and spent 14 months travelling around Australia followed by 4 months travelling around Asia. This then lead me into working in travel as I figured that I might as well work in an industry that I love and get to go on amazing holidays!
Co. Monaghan, Ireland.
Brighton and Edinburgh, where I studied Hospitality Management.
I worked for Trailfinders for 14 years, spending 6 years in their Business Class department. Having booked First and Business class passengers for many years, I've also been fortunate enough to have travelled in Business Class on various airlines. I know and understand the differences between each airline and can offer you lots of tips, I will happily advise on what each airline offers; from chauffeur car transfers, to the seat pitch and on-board service. I can tailor make trips to fit your exact requirements using my 15 years of experience in booking tailor-made trips. I've sent lots of clients on amazing holidays, so I would love to book your trip of a lifetime too!

No fault to report, only congratulations.
If you use Travel Nation you are in for a great holiday, with much help if the needs be.
We were unfortunate to be in the epicentre of the latest huge New Zealand earthquake last month, and who came to our rescue first? An Irish lass by the name of Grainne.

Running around after my two children aged 7 and 5.
Favourite film is The Castle – it cracks me up every time.
Travelling somewhere with my family and passing on the travel-bug to my kids.
Australia – I was having far too much fun.
Namibia – no two days are the same, it just blows you away. One day it’s desert, the next stunning coast, the mountains or a self-drive safari.
Sarong, a good book, my tweezers, eye mask and ear plugs.
I unpack - which really annoys my husband.
Sydney. A great outdoors lifestyle with impromptu BBQs at home or down by the beach.
Backpacking around Europe was great fun, however, when I arrived in Sydney, sat on Coogee beach I realised I could go wherever I wanted to...
Mozambique, Namibia and Brazil.
Marataba Safari Lodge, South Africa – in the foothills of the Waterberg Mountains. Amazing rooms, food and safaris through endless green space under vast skies.
That’s a very tough question – probably Cable Beach in Broome, Western Australia. Beautiful sunsets, a big wide beach and it's pretty much deserted. Or maybe the Maldives - idyllic beaches, turquoise waters and great diving.
Flags on rucksacks.
Borneo – I really want to see the orang-utans and also Cuba – I’d love to see it before it changes.
When I was in Nairobi I went to the carnivore restaurant and tried zebra and crocodile.
The sushi in the Maldives was the best; the worst would be refried beans in Mexico. There’s only so many days you can have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
I did lots of different jobs on a working holiday visa in Australia in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns and Adelaide. Who knew selling fairground ride tickets could be so much fun!?
I haven't, but I think my kids got a bit of a shock when we first arrived in Marrakesh.
The plane back to the UK after my first RTW trip.
Family and friends.
