How long have you been supporting people with disabilities to travel?
What has been your favourite trip you’ve been on with Trusted Travel?
A recent trip to Gosford for 4 days was a fantastic trip. It felt like a much longer holiday! There was action packed activities such as a trip to the zoo and the chocolate factory, but also the opportunity for people to relax by the pool or take a bushwalk to a waterfall. The stand out activity was definitely NetWorld at Treetops Adventure, Central Coast. Everyone running around giant netted rooms that were perched high in the treetops, it was honestly one of the most fun (and funniest) activities I have ever participated in. We also supported people overcoming their fear of heights and it was super rewarding to see them enjoying the activity too! Everyone was so exhausted after that we had to go back to the motel and have a rest and a swim before the pizza restaurant that night.
What is your dream holiday destination?
I have always wanted to kayak in the fjords in Norway. The mountain ranges there are beautiful.
What do you enjoy the most about supporting people to create amazing holiday memories?
I feel so grateful to be able to support people to achieve their individual holiday goals. For some people, they just want to relax and I enjoy knowing I am there to take the weight off their shoulders and ensure everything runs smoothly. For others, they want a holiday to gain some independence and I enjoy showing them travel tips or tricks they can take away. It’s really up to you!
Do you have any advice for people with disabilities wanting to travel?
Travel is what you decide to make of it. If you want to learn new things, travel can provide that. If you want to feel a sense of adventure, travel can definitely provide that! It can be just for fun or it can let you take time out from your everyday life.
