Hi I'm Nic (short for Nicola)
I have been in the Travel Industry for approximately 12 years now and still loving it.  I started in the accounts department for Tourism Holdings and soon moved into reservations for Newmans/Horizon Holidays and Ski Express.   I then took time off and spend a year in London, travelling England, Ireland and Europe and visiting a total of 22 countries. On my return, I briefly worked with Air New Zealand before joining the friendly team at Southern World .. and I'm still here, doing what I love the most - sharing New Zealand with my clients.


During my time at Southern World, I've continued my travels to Australia, Fiji (twice),Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and not to forget my travels all over New Zealand which are nice & frequent! 


I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and of course my dog Ollie. In my spare time I enjoy wakeboarding, beach walks, mountain bike riding, gardening, eating and sipping good wine - plus when I get a chance I dream about my next holiday.
