Caroline North

Sales consultant

From a young age, I was fortunate to travel frequently to the Caribbean. After leaving school, it was a no brainer to study Travel and Tourism and I started my career with Lunn Poly in 1995 (before it became Thomson then Tui). It was time to explore a new venture, so I started work for a long-standing independent travel agency in Bristol and worked for them for over 13 years.

This allowed me to do what I love: create wonderful itineraries for my clients without any of the restraints of a high street agent.

I’m often asked what my favourite holiday destination is. It's so hard to answer! I love a bit of adventure when I travel (you are never too old for a bit of adventure) so Costa Rica is right up there amongst the best. I’ve never seen so much wildlife, and started making a note of everything I’d seen but after just one day the list was long to maintain! Another favourite is Lapand, Sweden, because I love the snow - a real high-point here was moshing my own pack of huskies. For a warmer trip, you can't beat the Caribbean. I love that no island is the same and the people, food and scenery always take my breath away. You can't help but smile.
