Thank you for visiting my blog.

I’m Kate Self and you’re probably here because, like me, you love travelling. If you’re planning your next trip away, this blog offers you the latest travel updates and information, inspiration, offers, and tips and anecdotes from my travels.

Making your dreams a reality…

My passion is empowering others to have incredible travel experiences. My most memorable experiences include walking hand-to-trunk with elephants in South Africa, cuddling koalas in Australia, being eye-to-eye with an orangutan in Borneo and standing at the foot of a glacier in the Norwegian Fjords. I share these experiences through my blog and as an independent Travel Counsellor based in Winchester, Hampshire; where I research, plan and arrange dream holidays for clients.

I’ve been fortunate to visit many countries including Australia, South Africa, North America, Jamaica, St Lucia and the Dominican Republic, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Borneo and Thailand, plus a host of destinations in Europe and closer to home.

I do all the work; you enjoy the peace of mind…

Not only am I passionate about my job I’m dedicated to it. I enjoy doing travel research, giving my clients competitive options with reliable suppliers coupled with a bespoke personal service.

I’m 100% independent with access to hundreds of suppliers and many cruise liners, so whether it’s a long-haul holiday, honeymoon, ocean cruise, a winter ski trip, a short UK break or a relaxing get-away-from-it-all beach vacation; I’m here to help my clients find the holiday that’s tailored to their needs. Once they’ve chosen their destination, I plan and make all the arrangements so that they don’t have to.

What’s important to me is finding them the holiday of their dreams and taking the stress and time out of the whole experience. If this tailored service appeals to you, then get in touch and I’ll make all the arrangements and turn your travel dreams into a reality.

I hope you enjoy my travel blog and find lots of great advice and travel inspiration.
