Kate Dever – General Manager.
Kate grew up in Wairoa, Hawkes Bay, a small country town in New Zealand. Always having ambition to travel, Kate spread her wings at the age of 18 and moved to Melbourne, Victoria. Spending two years in Australia’s culture hub she fell in-love with the hustle and bustle of city life but once again felt the travel bug approaching and made a sea change to London. Spending a year and a half living and working in London, with Europe on her doorstep, Kate made the most of her time by exploring new countries every chance she could.
After many incredible adventures throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe, Kate travelled back to Australia to live in beautiful Tasmania. After 5 months the travel bug struck again – an adventure to Egypt, Jordan and Israel broadened Kate’s horizon. Different cultural experiences and ways of life brought Kate home with new knowledge and a huge appreciation for the little things. Relocating to the Sunshine Coast in 2012 Kate wanted to keep an ongoing sense of travel in her everyday life and share her experiences with others. Jumping into the travel industry she began her career with Live It Travel.
In 2013 Kate grew a desire to learn more about South East Asia, so she packed her bags and took a few weeks off to explore parts of Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia. The start of 2014 brought a relaxing holiday to Fiji, before later in the year escaping for a work holiday to India. Always having Africa on her bucket list and a huge love for animals, Kate ventured to Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana in August 2015.
Kate’s most recent trip was to Finland and Estonia as part of an agent familiarization trip in November 2015. Kate was lucky enough to visit Tallinn (Estonia), Helsinki, Rovaniemi (Santa at the Santa Claus Village!), Saariselka (sleeping in igloos at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort!), Inari (seeing the Northern Lights!), Menesjarvi (experiencing the Sami culture at reindeer farm) and back to Helsinki.
Lin Wang – Service Manager, Chinese Market.
Growing up in Chang Zhi, a small city 5 hours inland from Beijing, China, Lin moved to Australia in 2013 to further her studies with a Master of International Tourism and to pursue her career in the travel industry. Having lived on the Gold Coast for 2 years, Lin gained service experience in the well-known hotel chain, the Meriton. Lin also worked for a premium tour company escorting senior travel groups to some of the Gold Coast’s most popular destinations.
Lin has traveled many places throughout her home country making her our China guru – if you are planning a trip to China, Lin is the person to talk to. She can offer first hand knowledge and insights on where to go and what to see. From small Chinese villages to the big cities – she knows the ins-and-outs of each place!
Lin recently traveled to Fiji, spending 4 nights aboard the ‘Blue Lagoon’ cruise ship around the islands. Her next trip idea is to Thailand.
