New Zealand and Europe Specialist

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.”

– Ray Bradbury

Having been born and raised near Brussels, the capital of Europe, I've been fortunate to have had endless opportunities to explore and travel different parts of that continent. As an international family (German/American) living in Belgium, this naturally kindled my interest and desire to explore beyond my horizons and experience different cultures. My curiosity has led me to live in new and exciting places such as London, Berlin, Vienna, Australia and New Zealand in addition to visiting over 30 + countries.

With experience working in Tourism in New Zealand as well as Corporate Travel in London I often was referred to for travel inquiries. The satisfaction that came with assisting others with their travels is what led me to where I am now. I find I always end up in conversations about travel, and this brings me a feeling of nostalgia and a sense of joy.

What is my passion and hobby has thankfully opened doors to a potential career. I love, live, and breathe, travel. To be able to gift people with indelible memories gives me great pleasure and purpose.  

The reason I choose to specialize in New Zealand is because it’s a such a unique place that everyone should experience at least once in in a lifetime! Given its remoteness, few people know much about the country. However, to live there is to fall in love with the place and its people. I truly believe others should experience it the way I have. I feel confident my knowledge of the country will allow me to cater to different expectations that others may have as to ensure they leave with the great stories, pictures, and the most memorable times

Why choose Aotearoa/ New Zealand ?

Kia Ora,

New Zealand certainly a special place! Its limitless beauty beams so brightly it leaves you with such an appreciation for nature. There are endless beaches, mountains, volcanoes, glacier, lakes and rivers, all to enjoy as you're traveling around both the North and South Island! No matter which island you are on there are endless things to do that appeal to all interests.

Wine lovers rejoice and enjoy sipping your way through New Zealand! Wine not?

Embrace Maori culture, feast on a hangi and witness a powerful war dance.

Adventure seekers, don't worry there are plenty of activities to keep that adrenaline  pumping

Have you ever Skied on an active Volcano?

You tell me what you are looking for, I'm sure New Zealand will have it :)

Unforgettable and magical trip!

Reviewed By Shelly - Sydney, NSW | Traveled to New Zealand ~ Australia & New Zealand
Kelly was an incredible help when planning our South Island New Zealnd adventure. Her recommendations were meaningful, incredibly comprehensive and really highlighted the best things to do in each location. She also spent time to understand what we were looking for to make sure her recommendations were relevant to us. At clear that she knows the area very well, even recommending specific tours a guides over others. She was the reason we had such an unforgettable trip to NZ and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to travel in the area. Having this sort of insight while planning a trip is what makes all the difference!!!
