Jill Dear | Travel Consultant – Ampthill
Jill took her first flight aged 30 but has certainly made up for the late start! Her love of travel continued with family holidays throughout the Balearics, Canaries, mainland Spain, Greece, Portugal and the family favourite of Florida, which then led her into the travel business nearly 20 years ago. In more recent years she has travelled extensively around the Caribbean including Antigua, Barbados, Cuba, Jamaica, St Lucia and Mexico (several times) and sampled the many exotic cocktails – the favourite has to be ‘banana mama’ with extra rum!! Feeling the need to explore more and experience local cultures and traditions she now counts Sri Lanka and Thailand to be on top of her ‘list’, although California, Las Vegas and New York are close behind!
When she gets the chance for a short break she tries to make the most of it and has been to several European cities, independently and also on cruise ships. Barcelona, Rome, Florence, Prague and Berlin to name a few.

Overpack – That’s why suitcases have wheels these days!!!
