“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine

Where did you go on your last family holiday?  How did you feel?

I’ll bet it was beautiful.

Because there is nothing more beautiful than experiencing a family holiday which creates lifetime experiences and memories.  A holiday which connects and strengthens bonds so that when you fly back you are closer than when you left.

Great food, great weather, great laughs = beautiful family memories.

If you are hooked on creating those special moments for your family, perhaps there is also a career in it for you as well.  Imagine working in travel, following your passion & supporting your family with it too.

Oprah famously said “follow your passion, it will lead you to your purpose”.

If you have a passion for travel, if it’s something which feeds your soul, then here is your chance to follow that path.

Your next question might be, travel?  How will I make money from travel? Surely that’s not possible…
