I started at Flying Colours Travel in January of 2011 and my International travels consist of Fiji, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Maldives, Hong Kong, South Korea, South Africa, Zimbabwe, New Zealand, the UK, Belgium, France and the USA. Domestically I’ve been to every state within Australia. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been on a river cruise in Europe, an ocean cruise ex Australia and aboard the Ghan.

My favourite continents are Asia and America for the history, culture, shopping and food!

I’m looking forward to travelling more and sharing my experiences with you.

Travel has always been my passion and with over 15 years in the travel industry, I have been fortunate enough to travel to many destinations including Cuba, USA, Western Europe, Britain, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Bali, Malawi in Africa and South Africa.

I lived in Vancouver, Canada for a year working in travel and 9 months working in Mexico before travelling around the country. I would love to go back to South America and also see more of Africa.

Recently I have been to Hawaii and visited London and Paris and am now in my eighth year with Jacqui at Flying Colours Travel in Sale.

Kirsten Ault

My love for travel started with family trips to the Sapphire Coast and grew after hosting an exchange student from Argentina. I’ve been lucky enough to explore Australia and experience both the Ghan and Indian Pacific. I have toured Europe including a breathtaking river cruise along the Danube, eaten bubble and squeak in the UK, trekked in Nepal, watched the sunrise over the Taj in India, seen Angkor Wat in Cambodia as well as visiting Thailand, Vietnam, Mauritius, South Africa, Zimbabwe, China, New Zealand, Argentina, Canada and the United States.

I love learning about new places and exploring places that are off the beaten track. Now with two small children I love to find all the places that are friendly for the whole family.

Mel Schaper

Travel has been a passion of mine ever since my first overseas adventure back in 2010. I spent 5 weeks on a Contiki tour travelling from Los Angeles to New York before flying to Canada and working on a Ski field for a year. In 2014 I spent 2 months travelling extensively around Europe with a bit of London before starting work with Flying Colours early 2015. Since then I have been to the Cook Islands, Thailand, Vietnam, New Zealand and back to Canada where I travelled on board the Rocky Mountaineer which has been one of my favorite travel experiences to date. I am not fussy when it comes to travel and am open to any opportunity or experience that comes my way, although my dream destination is Africa.

Growing up I was very fortunate to have parents who liked to travel and we went to destinations such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and all over Australia. Cruising is one of my Favorite Holidays to do I have been on 12 Cruises in the past six years!

If I could travel to any place that is on my bucket list I would have to say Greece or Canada.

I am very excited to be starting my career in the Travel Industry. Not only so I can experience the opportunity to travel more of the world but to bring people happiness by booking their trips.

Rebecca Vanstone

I have recently moved back to Sale after 22 years in Melbourne & Adelaide to be back with my family and raise my little boy.  During my time in Adelaide l had the opportunity to travel extensively around the world.  Some of my favourite memories are; my first sighting of the Gorillas in Rwanda, watching the mist drift away to display the magical Machu Picchu, travelling in a hot air balloon over the Serengeti, helicopter flights over Victoria & Iguazu Falls,       spotting the animals in wild in Africa, climbing the steps of Angkor Wat and most recently flying over Antarctica.  I could actually go on and on as there has been so many wonderful places and experiences, but my favourite country would have to be Egypt, sailing lazily down the Nile and stopping along the way to visit the ancient ruins & beautiful hieroglyphs was such an incredible adventure. There is still plenty more places on the bucket list which l hope to cross off in the near future.
