Sharon Brisebois – Travel Consultant

I still remember the moment I fell in love with travel.  I was in Year 6 and I had to do a school project on Switzerland.  I thought the place was magic:  green pastures, cows and cowbells, snow capped mountains, scenic railways, chocolate, cheese, cuckoo clocks and neutrality.  I was hooked and dreamed about Switzerland and many other places all over the world for the next 10 years till I took my first overseas trip. I have been travelling ever since.
Where have I been?  Austria, Belgium, Broome & The Kimberley, Cairns & The Daintree, China, Corsica, England, Fiji, France, Germany, Great Ocean Road, Greece, Hervey Bay & Fraser Island, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Northern Territory, Sardinia, Scotland, Singapore, Snowy Mountains, Solomon Islands, Switzerland, Tasmania, Thailand, Turkey, USA, Wales.
I love working closely with my clients to know exactly what style and pace of holiday that they are hoping for, then producing a holiday itinerary that is even better than they expect.
