To travel is to live – we travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.
My passion for travel ignited when my family migrated from the Ukraine to New Zealand in 1996, I was nearly 11 years old. Our journey was full of excitement, unknown situations and uncertainties, we were delayed due to weather which released a chain of events, we spoke very little English which was challenging on its own. We flew half way around the world and my memories are still so vivid of this adventure. This inspired me to start a career in travel less than a decade later in which quickly became apparent that I am extremely passionate in helping others plan their journey.
I have been a Travel Professional in the Wairarapa for the last 15 years employed through the one agency where I have gained the knowledge and experience when it comes to designing holidays and making travel arrangements for a variety of travel styles, including looking after corporate and group/school trips.
During this time, I also learnt through my wonderful personal travel adventures in different parts of Australia, South Pacific, Asia, Europe and West Coast of America and my most recent journey to Southern Coast of India. I have cruised, explored and experienced the different travel styles, tasted many different cuisines and had the pleasure of encountering an array of culture. Travel expands the mind and fills the gap – the best education I ever received was through travel.
As I now have a young family having more flexibility and being my own boss complement our family, I enjoy spending time with our two children, exploring our own back yard near and far. Age shouldn’t be a barrier when it comes to travel. Our family enjoys travelling and we have amazing holiday plans in mind to create memories that would be cherished for life.

I have known Ksenia for about three years and in that time I have always found her to be very helpful and knowledgable when booking my holidays.
She is always a pleasure to deal with and nothing is too much trouble. For example, last year I had to go to the UK unexpectedly and decided to visit India on my return to NZ. Ksenia certainly went above and beyond the call of duty as she booked all flights, accommodations, arranged visas and arranged for me to be met in Delhi and organised all transfers and guides to look after me. She even managed to book a great hotel room with a lovely view of the Taj Mahal. All this in less than a week!!
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ksenia as a candidate for any employment and wish her every success.Carole
I have had the pleasure of knowing Ksenia for the past 4 years.
Ksenia is the most pleasant, confident and efficient individual who has amazing organisational skills. Nothing is too much trouble and she has always been prepared to go the extra mile to ensure you are happy with the final result. She is very astute and will listen to your requirements and perhaps make suggestions to guarantee a wonderful experience. Consequently, I have always sought out Ksenias expertise whenever I wished to travel and have had many enjoyable trips, only halted now because of Covid 19.
I cannot recommend Ksenia highly enough. I am sure she will be a valued member of staff in whatever sphere she works as she has high standards, is very genuine, and has a lovely manner when dealing with the public.Linda
I have known Ksenia for over 10 years and she has sorted out my annual holidays mostly to the Uk.
I was always so confident there would be no problems booking with Ksenia, she was always so helpful, caring and went above and beyond the call of duty and I knew if there were any problems whilst I was away I could contact her and she would sort it out which was piece of mind for me.
Wherever Ksenia chooses to work she will always be a key member of any team.Judy
