Our Journey

For as long as we can remember our families encouraged us to experience other cultures, people, and lands through travel.  My first memories were beach holidays at Camber Sands, mixing with masses on the golden sands.  So much love for travel had my mother, that we embarked on a cycle touring holiday of Brittany – much hillier than we expected – from this stems my love of cycling, boat travel and camping. It was also the start of a long relationship with French food, and then, when old enough, wine!

My career took us across the globe, a challenge we welcomed.  We learned new languages, customs, traditions, religions and met some of the most welcoming and wonderful people on the planet.  From great value holidays in the Greek islands, to skiing in the Alps, road tripping along the West Coast of the USA and luxury spas in Bali.

Our own children have the same passion, and much to the annoyance of us both, they have beaten us to trekking in Peru and adventures in Bolivia, to gap-year travel in Australia, independent travelling in Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos.

I Live To Travel explains our philosophy:

  1. Individual attention – we will focus on you, and give you the best travel experience, from our first conversations until you return home.
  2. Loyalty to our clients – our aim is that you travel with us again.  We will be there for you between your adventures; use us as your private consultants.
  3. Tailored to your requests – we will create the best travel experience.
  4. Total commitment from our team – we love to travel and we love to get the best deals for our customers.
