About Kristina Parkinson

My passion is travel! To me it made sense to combine this passion with organising and assisting fellow travellers with their travel dreams.

With 35 years in the travel industry, my varied work and extensive worldwide travel experiences bring a wealth of knowledge to the consulting, booking and finalising processes.

My qualifications include Advanced IATA, Module 9 (Advanced) Airfares, ICCA (International Cruise Council). I keep up to date with ongoing training.

Travel experiences that stand out are;

Sun rising through the sun gate at Machu Picchu, Peru on the 21st of June (winter solstice) walking the Inca Trail. The wow factor of a leopard brushing against the wheels of our safari vehicle as it walked by - Africa. Admiring the magnificent temple at Abu Simbel, Egypt with only 9 of us to disturb the peace. Traversing the Karakorum’s by 4WD – China/Pakistan. Taking the last few steps to 5200meters for a view of Mt Everest, Tibet. Ballooning over uniquely weathered sculptured landscape – Cappadocia, Turkey. The surreal sunrise - Taj Mahal – India. Being jostled in the bustling Kashgar Market, Kashgar, China. Boating up to the thundering Iguaçu falls, Brazil, Argentina. Walking the castle ramparts in a ghostly mist Sintra, Portugal. Walking on 4,000 year old steps – Ephesus, Turkey.
