Michelle Gibbins – Senior Travel Consultant – Part Time
YEARS IN TRAVEL INDUSTRY: 16 years travel experience
I have been in the travel industry for 15 years and have travelled to many places. It is hard to choose a favourite place, but the Galapagos Islands are truly unique. Seeing the African wildlife and landscape was also very special.
- Pack lightly…do you really need five pairs of shoes??
- Have an open mind….things will always be different to how they are at home, that’s part of the fun!
- Don’t forget your camera, but don’t spend the whole time looking through the lens!
- Estimate how much money you think you will spend while you are away and add a bit more – you will always find something amazing & unexpected, whether it’s an experience like a scenic flight or a local souvenir you just can’t resist!
- Keep a journal while you are away, I find it very helpful when sorting through photos!
