Countdown to Hong Kong

Mike was born there, he left when he was 13 years old, so I’m fascinated to see what he remembers by visiting the family’s old haunts and what has changed over the decades since they moved to the UK. March is also the 20th anniversary of when we first met and Mike’s birthday, so it’s going to be a very special week for the two of us. At the moment we’re working in excess of 80 hours a week booking…

The Rock Hotel, Gibraltar

We had arranged to meet a bunch of friends from the UK in Gibraltar, for the boys to go diving, while the ladies enjoyed some sunshine. In order to extend our own holiday, we decided to fly into and out of Madrid, and to drive down one side of Spain and up the other. I’ll cover the road trip part in another post, but this one is about Gibraltar. The rock is an oddity – clearly joined to the mainland…

VIP Airport Lounge Access

Just a quick tip I’d thought I’d share with you. We regularly use airport lounges around the world, but that’s not because we travel business or first class – I wish we could afford to! It’s because we have something called Priority Pass. We have a simple rule – if the airport departure area is really busy and / or we have more than two hours to departure, we use a lounge. They are always an oasis peace, good Wifi…

Tromso, Norway

We woke to a rainy day in Tromsø with low cloud cover, after breakfast at the Blu Radisson hotel we decided to scrub the cable car ride up to Storsteinen for a fabulous view over Tromsø, as it was shrouded in cloud. We caught up our work online with the free wifi in the hotel, before venturing outside. It was grey, wet and very slippy underfoot. The rain had partially melted the snow and ice which made walking somewhat difficult.…

Hurtigruten – Mike’s Thoughts

You can read the full story of our trip here, but these are my own observations and highlights from it. I really didn’t know what to expect of this trip. We’re not experienced cruisers, and anyway, Hurtigruten were at pains to point out their ships are not cruise ships! MS Finnmarken is about the size of the largest car ferries you see around the world. Indeed, she carries cars, and plenty of cargo as well. But the passenger decks are…

Hammerfest, Norway

We had 3.5 hours to explore Hammerfest, which is the world’s most Northern town and was raised to the ground by the Germans during the second world war. My first port of call was “Isbjørnklubben”, The Royal and Ancient Polar Bear Society, where I was registered as member no 258291 on behalf of Hurtibear, our furry stowaway. This is an interesting shop will reasonably priced gifts and polar bear museum, entry is free of charge. The membership costs 200 NOK,…

Hurtigruten Arctic Highlights

To witness the Northern Lights was on our bucket list, so when we saw a UK package offer for a 3 night cruise and 1 night hotel in Norway including flights from London Gatwick, we booked the Arctic Highlights offer with Hurtigruten. This is our first experience of a cruise, and Hurtigruten are quick to point out that their Norway Coastal Routes are a scheduled ferry service, they are working vessels, which for us added to the attraction. If you’ve…

Meet our team

Mike Cliffe-Jones

Director

I love travelling, especially when I get do so with a touch of luxury. For me travel is about buying “moments’ rather than “Things.” I’m an Ironman triathlete, scuba diver and I love techy stuff and cars. Sadly for my waistline, I love cooking and enjoying great food! My favourite places so far are Cape Town and Las Vegas, but I plan to explore the far east much more.

Julie Cliffe-Jones

Director

I’m in my forties, the kids have grown up and it’s time to have some fun with my hubby interspersing work with travel. I love discovering new places, I like to stay in luxury hotels, understand the local culture, experience the gastronomy and take photographs as I travel. I’m also a triathlete and Ironman, so when I do have some spare time I’ll probably be swimming, cycling or running.

Charlie Joyce

Travel Professional

After growing up with a real passion for food I trained as a Chef and whilst I have now joined the family travel business, I still love cooking for my family and friends.  I enjoy travelling and experiencing different cultures and cuisines which fits perfectly with another hobby of mine of taking great photographs.  I have been DJ’ing for many years and I still enjoy mixing electronic dance music.  I have been visiting the Canary Islands for almost 10 years and I plan to move to one of the islands with my Wife and Daughter. 

Natalie Joyce

Travel Professional

After years in HR Management I have joined the family travel business. As a travel fan and parent of a 12 year old Daughter I like to switch our holidays up between sight seeing City breaks and chilled out holidays in the sun. I consider myself to be a real foodie, we are always experimenting in the kitchen at home and we eat out as often as possible. I am also huge music fan and I love everything from 80’s pop, to Hip Hop to current pop and Drum & Bass. I have been visiting the Canary Islands for nearly 20 years and the next step is to move to one of the islands.

What they say about us

You must be the most efficient and well-organised person I’ve ever met!

Thanks for car hire info.
Thanks again for such amazing ‘Customer Service’

(so much vaunted these days, but generally not up to expectations).

 

Jonathan Ward

Regular Client

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and Mike for all of your help planning our perfect honeymoon!! The Airport lounge was such a great way to start the honeymoon. Dan has decided that’s how we are now going to start every holiday from now on. Thanks to Mike for checking every possible date again, he was so patient with me. Its was amazing to fly the day after the wedding as we were on such a high.

South Africa was unreal….and they upgraded us to the best room in the hotel. Stunning. We saw so many animals including a few rare sights such as 4 males lions walking next to our truck.

 

Jenni Hill

Honeymoon

We’ve had a lovely time. The villa was ideal for us a couple.

I’m glad you’ve said you can do travel worldwide because that was a question I was going to ask you. As much as we love Lanzarote we feel like a change.

Thanks again julie to both you and Mike I feel like I now you know and trust you to get Graham and myself the best holiday.
