Fiona believes that travel is about the joy of exploration and discovery. It is good to research and plan your next great adventure to maximise your holiday experience. it is also good to allow unplanned time to just explore, get lost, follow your nose or your gut instinct and find something unexpected.
In 2008 Fiona founded her own business Travel Sense. Fiona prides herself in offering a high level of personalised customer service to all her clients whilst utilising her many years of travel experience to create the perfect holiday or business travel experience.
Travel is about learning and understanding of other people’s and other cultures. It is about understanding our environment and what we can do to protect its future. It’s about seeing for ourselves where we can make a difference for those less fortunate than us. This education and enlightenment can only lead to a more harmonious world and preservation of our natural wonders.
The name Travel Sense was created to represent the wealth of knowledge and experience that the team have to share with their clients. The perfect travel experience will also involve all of the senses – sight, taste and touch and of course require a sense of adventure!
