HOT Botany Junction Staff

i.   Katrina has just returned from Las Vegas, Caribbean Cruising and New York so if any of these are on your bucket list and you want to plan just one of these destinations or all 3 please contact Katrina. On of her favourite destinations is Thailand.
ii.   Lorraine would love to share with you her adventures cruising through Asia visiting exciting ports in Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, Japan and China so contact her now to find out more. On land she loved the Indian Pacific from Perth to Sydney.
iii.   Helen has travelled with her family (including 2 young children) to UK, Los Angeles and Calsbad (Legoland) with a much needed rest in Hawaii on the way home so she knows first hand about travelling with a family.  
iv.   Karen spent an idyllic week in Rarotonga last winter – bliss – but she also worked and saw lots of resorts up there so she can share with you where to stay, what to do and where to enjoy a $10 fresh fish sandwich!!  For something a little bit more adventurous she had three weeks travelling around Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam and absolutely loved it. The food, the people, the culture, the history – all absolutely fascinating and she can help you choose the right way to experience this interesting part of the world.
v.   Fancy yourself searching quaint villages in the UK – Jan spent some time doing just that, renting a car and using a Heritage pass to find out some treasures of the UK. She claims to be an expert on Paris too so test her skills.
vi.   Morgan experienced the Gold Coast and all it has to offer including a trip up north to the Australian Zoo
vii.   Bronwyn visited the amazing cities of San Francisco and  Las Vegas -  two gems on the West Coast of the US.
viii.  Claire has experienced the Gold Coast, Fiji, Melbourne (enjoying the tennis), Sydney and Perth – so Australia is a favourite of hers!!!      
ix.   Leena has enjoyed the island life of Tahiti, Hawaii and Fiji as well as cruising on P & O.
