After Graduating from Bombay University, I decided I wanted to pursue a career as a travel agent. After obtaining a Diploma in Travel and Tourism; and becoming certified by IATA- UFTAA as an International Travel Consultant, I now have 28 years experience in the Travel Industry, 15 years of which have been in Canada. During this time, I have travelled extensively throughout India; Australia; New Zealand; the Exotic South Pacific Islands like Tahiti, Fiji and The Cooks; Mauritius; The Maldives; Israel; Italy, England, South Africa, Swaziland, Morocco, China, Kenya,Thailand, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Singapore and more. Every place I’ve travelled to has offered me a different experience….the world is a stunning place. There’s nothing quite like seeing Michelangelo’s DAVID in person, or standing right at the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, or cuddling a real live Koala, or having a huge herd of African elephants block the tiny dirt road your jeep is traveling on……. the list of exciting things I’ve seen and done on all my travels goes on and on...
