Introducing Carly Evans
I have worked in the travel industry since 2001 and have a particular interest in cruising and culture. My roles to date have included working for a corporate agency, a cruise specialist travel agency, a premium coach tour and river cruise operator, a cruise line and a tailor-made global group tour operator. I have been involved in sales and business development, marketing, documentation, product packaging, fares and ticketing as well as management. My well-rounded experience will ensure you are in capable hands.
My love of travel was inspired by my Mother, who was gifted with a round world trip from her own parents for her 21st Birthday.
After many short-haul family holidays in Australia, my first overseas adventure was to Japan on a two week high school homestay program. Followed closely by family trips to Bali in two consecutive years, I was hooked on travelling. I knew from then that I had found my calling. I trawled travel brochures over and over, dreaming of my ‘where to next’. Highlights have included Sri Lanka, Peru, Canada and Turkey.
