It's beautiful outside all covered in snow, but can be hazardous if you are travelling. Here's some tips if you are hoping to travel over the next few days:

- If you are flying, check-in online as soon as you can (usually 24 to 2 hours before your flight)
- Check Airline, Rail and Traffic News websites regularly for updates of services and road conditions
- Leave home in plenty of time and remember to take warm blankets, extra layers of clothing and food and a flask with you just incase you are delayed

If you're not going anywhere and are dreaming of holidays, I work from home and am unaffected by the current conditions, so give me a call or drop me an email and I will be happy to help warm you up with the arrangements of a holiday.

Enjoy the snow!

Happy New Year to you All!!

I hope you had a wonderful festive period sharing it with your family and friends. I had a great time and my break included watching Reading FC (Draw and Win!), a "Punch Party" with friend and clients (including a magic show) and Panto in Southampton (Oh no it didn't. Oh yes it did!!).

Don't get the January Blues this 2013, book a holiday through me !!
Your holiday is financially protected,  so why book with a faceless internet site, with no personal service.
Give me a call and let the holiday experience commence from the moment you contact me.

I am at your servicethoughout January and beyond to personalise your holiday experience whether I come and see you at home to discuss your plans over a cuppa, or over the phone or email, whichever you prefer. I don't charge for my time and there is no obligation at any stage, so give me a call and I can banish your January Blues.

All the best for 2013 and I look forward to turning your travel dreams into a reality this year.

On 19th September, I took a group of six clients,  whom had cruised previously but never with Celebrity Cruises for a tour and lunch onboard Celebrity Constellation in Southampton.

We got to see the different types of cabins, the bars and show lounges, the restaurants, the pools (one of which is adults only) and the spa. When then went on to have a wonderful four course lunch with wine in the ships main restaurant with panoramic views over the port to top off a really nice day.

If you are into cruises and there are cruiselines you would like to explore, plase let me know and when a consumer ship visit becomes available, I will give you the opportunity for a visit.
