Early November saw nine excited, albeit apprehensive, travel consultants embark on an experience which would change them forever. Although it is true that one will always return from a sojourn changed to some degree these agents were unaware of the impact China’s history, culture and environments would have on them.

Recently my family and I booked ourselves a trip to the Gold Coast. I’d been before when I was a lot younger and before I had a family. I was looking forward to experiencing it again, only this time we are taking our kids. The Gold Coast is the perfect place for families. We set ourselves a challenge and that was, we would take in a couple of the quintessential Gold Coast attractions, but we really wanted to find family friendly options off the beaten track!
We did it, we committed to a family holiday and told the kids three months before departure. In hindsight, we possibly told them a little too early as we had to endure their constant and repetitive countdown but it was fun winding them up and watching them go ‘ping’ like a rubber band the day we left.

Recent years have witnessed a resurgence in touring holidays as traditional operators understood that travellers were after much more than ticking off sights and countries. As a very wise person once said, no one is going to be eternally grateful to a travel consultant for booking a bus! Focus on the experience, it really is everything! So why select a touring holiday?
