My original plan was to spend 12 months in Australia on a working holiday – I ended up staying for 12 years! I fell in love with the outdoor lifestyle, the superb beaches and, of course, the fabulous weather.
This huge country offers a diverse range of activities and one-of-a-kind experiences. Some of my favourite moments have included New Year’s Eve fireworks at Sydney Harbour, snorkelling with incredible marine life on the Great Barrier Reef and dining under the stars in the Red Centre. The wildlife is also a sight to behold, from cuddly koalas to cute quokkas – you won’t have seen anything like it!
I was also able to spend time in New Zealand, enjoying many of the awesome activities on offer. This is a country of jaw-dropping scenery, interesting Maori culture and superb wine! New Zealand offers some of the best luxury boutique accommodation, set in outstanding locations and complemented by exceptional hospitality.
