The sea gleamed, the waves slowly moved in and out, barely creating a ripple, like they were rocking the cradle that held all our boys. What had I expected? A wild raging west coast surf and an angry brooding coastline? So this beautiful tranquil place was “ANZAC Cove”! It cloaked me with a feeling of profound peace, even though it is for us all, a place of great sadness, young lives lost. Read into the history & location of Gallipoli in our Travel Blog here...

Emirates - a Business Class Experience_ YOU Travel Whitianga Travel Agency 2.jpg
I am not always satisfied with articles on the business class experience of Emirates A380. As a travel agent I feel that there is so much more than the seating, the meal service and the Bar down the back, to report on. My article won’t finish with “Monett flew courtesy of Emirates Airways”, because I didn’t. Like all hardworking kiwis I bought my own ticket, so I fully appreciate the cost and why business class travel should be fabulous.

P&O Cruises are saying bye, bye to the traditional buffet and hello to a brand new dining experience. Banishing trays, queues and the all-you-can-eat smorgasbord, the cruise line’s latest concept is named “The Pantry”, and is similar to an up-market food hall where passengers can choose between eight different stations and have their meals individually plated. Contact your Whitianga Travel Advisor for all the latest travel deals & information on P&O cruises.
