How many hats have you worn? I have worn many but saved the best for last! It’s important to find your passion in life.
My early days were spent as a hairdresser, so when it comes to finding a good operator, I‘m pretty fine with that. I’ve sourced some great salons in Bali and one that I’ve been going to for over ten years. I’ve introduced many people who have been very happy with their services from colouring, foils, cuts to crème baths. I did hair and make up for a photography studio for many years ending up as state manager for the same company for a change of pace.
Continuing with my creative side I studied Interior Design and my husband and I ran a very large business. We spent many a holiday in Bali as it was a short trip away and harder for people to contact us so found this to be more relaxing. My passion grew every time we came here and became our home away from home. So much so we decided to build our own villa.
Over the last ten years I’ve gradually been moving away from Interior Design to build on my biggest passion of taking females like me to Bali and to show them a different side as I have seen.
Sadly over this time my direction became very different to my husbands and I realised that I was very unhappy with my life and decide I wanted what I want, I’m not getting any younger, if I was going to make the break, do it in my fifties, while I still had lots of energy and fight left in me. I am still working with him, but my true passion is helping other women find themselves, I don’t mean they have to separate as I have, but truly experience a side of Bali that I have. So now I’m a tour creator and have been working on this for a long time along with Ketut my tour guide who we put through university. I have also teamed up with Surthriver as she has the same ideas as I do and has run retreats on the Gold Coast, but like us, always had Bali in the back of her mind so has called on Safe Travel Tours as we’re the experts when it comes to all things Bali.
As a breast cancer survivor, she really has come through to the other side and can share her journey of how she has beaten the cancer and how she won through having a very positive mind, lot’s of yoga and balance is what she recommends, that is why as a team, we have so much to offer ladies feeling like they need this, we are not travel agents, we are specialists that is why we ask who would like a fully escorted, all-inclusive trip of a life time to Bali. We are really excited and have so much to share with like-minded women.
As we age, there are so many things going on. I was just saying to my long-time friend last week, I thought all the crap was behind us when we reach menopause, but for a lot of us it’s actually worse, so we get it and that is why we have aimed our tours for over 40’s and want to you to have fun, bit of adventure, lots of pampering and girl stuff.
