Pamela Spencer's Background

I was born in Scotland and after studying hospitality ended up in jobs and completed travel within the hotel industry.  Travel truly took over when I moved to Australia in the late 1980’s and all these years later I’m still here in the travel industry.

Working my way through all areas of the travel industry gave me an overview of the business and helped me decide that group travel was where my passion lay.

Since 2004 I have specialised in Groups & Charters for all types of travel including expedition, ocean cruising, river cruising, multigenerational and special interest groups as well as luxury tours for business and pleasure.  During this time I have also achieved certificates in sales and customer service as well as earning a degree in Ancient History (a particular passion of mine), a CLIA Masters and have travelled extensively with family and friends.

No two days are the same!  I find travel extremely rewarding and look forward to many more years in the industry!

Destination Recommendation:

Too many but if I had to pick one – Jordan, a country full of surprises, the people, the food, the history, the ruins, the landscape and it feels very safe

Hotel Recommendation:

Again there are many but any of the M Gallery by Sofitel Hotels as buildings are always interesting, locations are stunning and the service exceptional.

Ship Recommendation:

Wind Spirit one of the smaller ships in the Windstar fleet - small ship, sailing yacht, exceptional service, fantastic food, great itineraries, casually elegant vibe
