What does The holiday of a lifetime mean to you? for many it would be a trip to Australia taking in Ayres Rock, the Great Barrier Reef and Sydney Opera House, escaping to an unspoilt tropical island such as Bora Bora, or a fun-filled trip to the US, but for me personally, the holiday of a lifetime would include all of the above
The world is one big, beautiful place and it has never been more accessible than it is today. Round the world flights, cruises and train rides allow us to visit those places that we could previously only dream of, and with long-haul flights cheaper than ever before, we can all afford to take that trip of a lifetime.
In our aim to share experiential travel with others, we are constantly on the lookout for exciting new routes, and in our mission to create the holiday of a lifetime; we came up with a tour that we know is going to tickle the taste buds of those looking for something extra special.
Starting in the entertainment capital of the world, our holiday of a lifetime begins in Las Vegas, Nevada where one can wine, dine, gamble, party, sunbathe, swim and relax, and do it all in one day a vibrant city of luxury hotels, great shopping and amazing shows, Las Vegas is a place where you can do as little or as much as you like, and it is a great place to begin your unforgettable journey.
From Las Vegas we fly directly to Hawaii where you start to unwind and enjoy the beauty of Honolulu beach, the friendly people and wonderful seafood. After two nights in this tropical paradise, you will be in the holiday mood and ready for you next adventure, an 18-night cruise across the Pacific Ocean
A magnificent cruise stopping at exotic destinations such as Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea, this is for anyone who enjoys fine dining, sunning themselves by the pool, working out in the gym, pampering at the spa, meeting new people and viewing some of the greatest shows as sea.
Stopping at both the north and south islands of new Zealand before arriving at the final port of call – Sydney, Australia, this holiday of a lifetime takes you around the world and you will have visited some breathtaking sights along the way.
After a stopover in Sydney you can simply choose to return home or fly to another destination, the world, as they say, is your oyster
So take that holiday of lifetime this year, and cross one more item off your bucket list

Homesickness may not be too much of a problem for apprentice Jason Collett after he made Randwick his own on Saturday with a winning treble.
The 20-year-old New Zealand rider is one third of the way through a three-month loan to leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller and admitted he had found it a big adjustment at first.
“I was a bit homesick at first away from my family and friends,” Collett said.
“It took me a while to find my feet and it was a bit intimidating.
“But I’m settling in now.”
Two of Collett’s winners, Foreteller and The Verminator, were for Waller who has a big opinion of his new protege.
“He is a great kid and has a huge career ahead of him,” Waller said.
“He rides really well and is also a thinker in a race.
“His ride on The Verminator was great.”
Foreteller is one of a legion of horses Waller has bought in Europe and added his name to the long list of winners.
Waller believes he has the potential to be a genuine spring carnival horse and will aim high later this year.
The first of Collett’s winners came on Yulalona for the Darley team prepared by Peter Snowden, Waller’s main rival for the trainers’ premiership.
Snowden was in Brisbane overseeing Beaded’s successful raid on the Group One Doomben 10,000.
Sydney foreman Brad Widdup was another to praise Collett’s ability.
“It was a great ride. I haven’t had much to do with Jason and didn’t know him very well but he was very patient which is what we wanted,” he said.
Fellow apprentice Chad Schofield added his name to the Saturday winners’ list for the first time on Kimberley Kid for his master David Payne.
Although the youngsters rode half the program there were still spoils for a couple of veterans in Rod Quinn and the evergreen Robert Thompson.
Quinn steered the Guy Walter-trained Brightest to victory while Thompson, who holds the record for the most wins in Australia, guided Jest Crewsin’ to win the 1100m open handicap.
Showing all his skills, Thompson brought the Jan Bowen-trained Jest Crewsin’ from back in the field to claim a short head win over Unanimously.
“He was really suited by the speed and hit the line good,” Thompson said.
“It took me a couple of strides longer to get the whip through to my right hand than it used to but I got there.”
