Vietnam Family

Posted by Kirsty Carleton on Nov 13, 2014 Add a Comment 0

My love for South East Asia has grown since coming back from a brief trip to Vietnam. Early one Thursday morning I met twelve other eager travel agents at the Vietnam Airlines check-in counter with bright eyes and big smiles. Everybody seemed to be in good spirits ready for our adventure to Southern Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Hoi An. We flew on the direct Sydney - Ho Chi Minh service on an Airbus A330.  The seats were a comfortable size and food was edible, however the entertainment was not working for half of the people on board (including me) much to the disappointment of fellow travellers and one disgruntled man in particular. It was made worse by the airline staff not really knowing what was going on and advising everyone that it would shortly be fixed. After two hours .. I guess we all figured that was not going to happen.  I was glad I bought a book along with me and that I was able to play tag team with a new friend who managed to...

The Roof of the World

Posted by Susanna DaSilva on Nov 13, 2014 Add a Comment 0

Many people nowadays have “bucket list” of things they want to do before they die, mostly older folks like me I suppose :-). Well, to be honest I am not quite ready for a bucket list, however if I was, visiting Tibet would definitely be on the draft! So when my manager advised me last December that our agency got a spot on a famil to the top of the world travelling China Southern and sponsored by Wendy Wu tours I was utterly delighted! One of the highlights of my previous travels was spending about 3 months in Nepal and trecking there. I walked all the way from the foothills up to Everest Base camp, only to realise it was another 10 days back.  A wonderful experience despite the poor food, very basic accommodation, lack of showers and hard hiking for 3 weeks.. 30 years later my return to the area was somewhat different, this time around we traveled in style. Visiting Tibet requires not only a valid Chinese visa but a special permit...

Fiji fast & furious

Posted by Susanna DaSilva on Nov 12, 2014 Add a Comment 0

I’ve been in the travel industry on and off for almost 25 years now but never on an inaugural flight. So when World Resorts of Distinction offered a famil called FIJI THE RIGHT WAY and it included travelling on the first ever direct Fiji Airways flight from Sydney to Suva plus a delightful selection of boutique style resorts across the islands I did not hesitate to put my hand up. I have been to Fiji before but it has been many years, so this was going to be great refresher. The itinerary indicated we would spend 5 night’s away and visiting 5 resorts, which in my ignorance I mistook for a leisurely trip. But let’s start at the beginning! The small group of 5 met at the gate at the airport for the first time, keen to get to know each other and excited about the upcoming flight, which turned out to be delayed by about an hour. After a bit of fanfare we were allowed to board. The flight was pretty busy, mostly locals taking...

My 7th continent

Posted by Nickola Hoffman on Sep 01, 2014 Add a Comment 0

Day 9 & 10 - Journey toward Elephant Island continues…and looking out for Point Wild. Still! It was a surprisingly a much better morning, the seating at breakfast was almost full compared to the day before. There were a couple of sore heads from the previous night’s Cowboys and Indians night…who'd have thought you could utilise a dance floor so well playing into the ships rocking and rolling, prompting the flow of which side we all ended up on next! Quite amusing!! A few Fin whales around these parts, Santiago told us a bit more about Penguins & Petrels and it starts to get cooler, there are lots more ice blocks appearing around the ship. We spend the next two whole days at sea and to be honest we are...

En Route to South Georgia

Posted by Nickola Hoffman on Sep 01, 2014 Add a Comment 0

  Day 4 & 5 - No land in sight, weird, and 2 days of it! Eeekkk!! Over these next 2 days we ate well and learned lots....it was even calm enough to brave some time in the room they call 'the gym'! We heard more about those brave, and slightly mad, explorers and their stories, Mawson, Gerlache, Amundsen, McNish, Scott, Wild, Nordenskjold, d'Urville and of course the great Shackleton, whose attempt to make the first land crossing of the Antarctic continent in 1914, failed but became famous for its epic story of survival. Stories not just of him and his crew at sea, but of the final days of the rescue mission, trekking across South Georgia Island searching for a whaling station where he knew they would find help and being able to facilitate the rescue of his 22 men from the crazy Point Wild. Point Wild, a place we get the opportunity retrace the last part of the Shackleton teams journey in just a couple of...
