My name is Sylvia Shannon and I have just celebrated my 3rd anniversary with Travel Counsellors since I joined in February 2010. I originally started in travel in 1973 and worked for a number of years in a leading agency in Carlow. Following a break when my children were young I returned to the industry in 1997 and I have been working in Wexford since 2000.
I live close to Wexford town and work from home, which gives me the flexibility to meet clients at a time to suit their busy schedules, including evenings and weekends.
I love my job and giving good personal service has always been my aim. I like to take my time with clients to ensure they get the holiday that suits them. I have recently researched and booked holidays for two couples travelling to India. These were very different itineraries and my clients were delighted with my suggestions.
I have travelled widely in Europe taking family holidays in mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands, Portugal, Cyprus, Italy, France, Lapland, Madeira, Austria and Turkey. Some of the cities I have visited in the UK are London, Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle. I have also taken Mediterranean cruises which gave me the opportunity to visit many European cities. I have been to Thailand and spent 3 nights in Bangkok, and then travelled to Pattaya beach resort.
One of my favourite holidays was a trip to South Africa. I flew to Cape Town where I spent two nights and this gave me time to explore the city and places of interest. I then flew to Port Elizabeth and stayed in Lalibela Private Game Reserve. I undertook three safaris while staying there, and was up close to all the animals which was a wonderful experience. I then travelled back to Cape Town by the Garden route, where I visited many towns and places of interest.
I recently spent a week in Kusadasi in Turkey. The weather was beautiful and I found the people to be very friendly and helpful. While there I visited Ephesus and Pamukkale which are both historic sites.
I hope you will take the opportunity to read my travel diaries while visiting my website.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my existing clients, and look forward to your continued support. I also look forward to meeting lots of new clients and looking after your travel needs.
