For you to achieve your travel dream your way.

However I know, arriving on a new website or blog can be overwhelming and trying to find the information that you need can be – well – a task to say the least. 

So this page is here to help guide you to the information you need.

But first of all why should you even listen to me?

So let me introduce myself.  My name is Sally-Ann Brown and I live in Perth Western Australia with my husband and our 11-year-old son.  I have a Bachelor in Tourism and Marketing and have worked in the hospitality and tourism industry for over 20 years.

I have also been travelling since the age of one.  My parents took my sisters and I on caravanning trips all over Australia.  Those early travels grew into a thirst to see the world.  As an adult I have taken:

  • Road trips around Australia
  • Visited family in Africa
  • Backpacked though Europe
  • Sailed down the Nile River
  • Explored California by road
  • Toured Mexico
  • Flashpacked the Mediterranean
  • Enjoyed luxury holidays through South East Asia
    • (As an Australian we use the term holiday for vacations or trips

With each of these trips I have been the DIY travel planner.  Then with the introduction of the internet – the DIY travel agent booking our trips online.  At the beginning I was by no means the expert; I made mistakes along the way, learned from others, gradually becoming more confident as I created step by step systems to plan and book a trip. 

Now I want to share those systems with you, helping you to become the travel planning guru in your house.
