My name is Jenny and I am a Travel Counsellor based in Barnet, North London. I have lived here for eight years and prior to that lived in West London, Essex and Gloucestershire. We have three young children and a dog, and we love this area because it’s close to the city while still having so many green spaces and villages to explore.
Before becoming a Travel Counsellor I was helping my husband set up and run two businesses in the motor and property industry. Before that I always worked in the travel industry, right from leaving school. It started with an apprenticeship with Thomas Cook, followed by many years with Flight Centre when I moved to London.
I have had extensive experience in arranging travel for both leisure and business clients. My early years in travel were very much based around traditional package holidays and European beach destinations. My career in London was more varied with experience in booking First and Business fares, luxury tailor made travel, ski trips, honeymoons, round the world tickets and everything in between!
Personally, I have always loved to travel. I booked myself a round the world ticket at the age of 20 and went to Thailand, lived and worked in Australia, and then visited Fiji, Hawaii and Las Vegas on the way home. I was lucky to travel a second time when I met my husband and we took a six month trip around South and Central America. We spent a month in Brazil, a month in Argentina and took a crazy road trip from Lima to La Paz. We trekked the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu, and then relaxed in Panama, had three weeks of yoga in Costa Rica and then another amazing road trip from Belize to Mexico, which I absolutely loved.
In between, working in travel gave me the opportunity to take educational trips to Los Angeles, and on safari in Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar which is something I’ll never forget. I particularly love arranging safari trips and tailor made holidays to dream destinations like this where first hand experience is so useful.
I hope to be able to help you arrange your future trips whether they are for business or pleasure, and would love to hear from you soon.
