 “I work for the best company in the world! I get to do so many familiarization trips to all the top destinations—and with my best friends and colleagues—and then, when I get home, I get to share my experiences with my clients and help them plan their own dream trips. Yes, I love my job!”

Greece … Thailand … Australia … Dubai … Ireland … If it’s on your bucket list, chances are our intrepid travel counsellors have already been there.

“Travelling is a requirement of my job – and it’s also what I love best about it,” says Leanna Beaver, Maritime Travel counsellor, Burnside, NS.  “As Maritime Travel counsellors, we’re expected to have global knowledge of travel trends and to be able to advise clients as to their best choices based on first-hand experience.”

Indeed, criss-crossing the globe in search of adventure is what we do best at Maritime Travel! Here’s a quick overview of just two of the bucket-list destinations Leanna and her colleagues have been checking out: Greece and New Zealand.

“The kind of clients I would recommend New Zealand to are the ones who want some daring and adventure, off the beaten track. It would also be a great destination for foodies as the cuisine is incredible with wonderful wines to accompany it.”

This itinerary includes biking through Karangahake Gorge and hiking the Tongariro Crossing – one of the world's most famous one-day hikes – before jet boats and kayaks provide the transport along the Whanganui River. Mix in some bubbling mud and a traditional hangi dinner, and this is the perfect active introduction to New Zealand.

“Spectacular scenery, delicious food and crazy-good shopping—what’s not to love about Greece! The only requirement is good mobility, as you can expect to do a fair amount of walking and ferry-hopping. But if mobility is an issue, Greece can also be experienced through cruising and shore excursions. The highlights for me were the islands of Mykonos and Santorini and I’d say that Santorini offers some of the best scenery in the world.”

Cast your mind back over millennia, your footprints following those of Alexander the Great, Aristotle and Plato. Explore the mighty kingdom of Ancient Greece, from the Temples of Zeus and Hera, the Parthenon and Delphi on the slopes of Mount Parnassos. Walk the Sacred Way to the 4th century Temple of Apollo and greet the gods and goddesses of Olympia.
