Today’s blog comes from STA Travel’s very own Trish Black who works in our Arizona office and recently spent time on South Africa’s Garden Route.
So you’ve read the guidebooks, Google image searched your heart away and have decided that this South African Garden Route thing sounds pretty good. Now what? Fortunately for you, lucky traveller, we’ve been there, and have a few tips and revelations for you before you go….
Today’s blog comes from Alistair Lee – a Travel Expert from our UK Contact Centre who headed out to Dubai in February as our Emirates Insider.
When I was asked to go out on a trip to Dubai and be followed by a camera crew for a few days I was, well, apprehensive to say the least! Not because of the destination, I’ve been to Dubai 6 or 7 times so I was confident that I could find my way around and show off the best things to do, but being filmed on the beach in my green shorts was a different matter entirely. They are mine by the way, and I know they look great.
Today’s blog comes from Tom Fenton, a Travel Expert from our Victoria Store, who in October 2014 was picked to be one of 4 Emirates Insiders and sent to explore Milan…with a little help from you.
I’d worked in our central London store for a year and a half when I was chosen to travel as an Emirates Insider to Milan. Despite travelling all over the world I’d never been to Northern Italy so when I got the call there was no way I was saying no. Plus I’m very photogenic (stop giggling).
We all know that if someone’s actually been to a destination and can recommend something then it can really help you get under the skin of the city and we tapped into our Facebook community to get their thoughts on Milan’s top sites. I loved reading the comments before jetting off to plan my adventure…
Today’s post comes from Alison Nicholls from our Key Accounts team who travelled to Australia in October and spent 9 glorious days on the Nature Coast.
I already know what you’re going to say: “What the hell is a nature coast anyway?” Well, honestly, I wasn’t sure myself until I headed down under and travelled for 9 days along the most beautiful stretch of shoreline in the world (bold claim but I stick by it).
Australia’s Nature Coast is comprised of the Sunshine Coast and Fraser Coast which include such awesomeness as Rainbow Beach, Fraser Island, Noosa, loads of vineyards, national parks and much much more! Read on for 8 highlights not to miss on your Australian adventure.
