Ready For Departure

Be Fully Prepared For Your Next Travel Adventure

Here's the truth - packing lists are great for getting organised when travelling, but wouldn't it be great if you had a little more help planning and organising all aspects of your travels?

How about some creative ideas and help with:

  • Choosing your next destination. Summer sun, winter weekender? Go solo, or as a couple, or with family, or friends? Keep it local or go long haul? Choices, choices.
  • Making the trip an enjoyable experience filled with meaningful moments that will create lifelong memories.
  • And then there's the packing! You want to pack the right things in the right numbers, so you're not lugging a bulging suitcase full of stuff that won't see the light of day while you're away.
  • Figuring out what to see, what to do and where to eat, so you don't miss out any must-do options.
  • Buying souvenirs to bring home that are a winning combination of style, simplicity and size. Because who wants a kitsch keepsake that will only end up in the 'to trash' pile when next you declutter.
  • Returning home and keeping that feeling of 'rested and rejuvenated' longer than five minutes.

That's a lot to organise to achieve vacation victory and a packing list alone is not the solution.


Travelling can give us some of our best life experiences. However, it's not all happy memories when you realise...

  • You have a long list of dream destinations to visit, but it's years down the line and you still haven't crossed any off your list.
  • You keep wishing you had seen more of the sights on your last trip.
  • You frustratingly pack and re-pack your suitcase but still end up with a suitcase that bulges at the seams.
  • And then end up with 'nothing to wear' by the second day of your holiday.
  • You have holiday mementos that looked cute in the shop, but now you're home they've ended up in a heap of clutter.
  • You're pretty hazy on the details enjoyed your holidays, but when discussing your travels more than two weeks after getting home, you realise you're pretty hazy on the details and can't recall the name of that lovely restaurant you ate at on the last day of your trip.

It really doesn't need to be like that.


"Not all who wander are lost"

JRR Tolkien

You can have a holiday where you'll:

  • Finally take a trip to one of your dream destinations.
  • Clearly choose luggage that meets your needs and the criteria for the major airlines.
  • Curate a vacation closet that works for you for the entire trip.
  • See the sights...
  • Easily and intentionally choose suitable gifts and souvenirs at the drop of a hat.
  • Return to a welcoming home and retain that holiday feeling for days and weeks to come.
  • Savour, recall and share your travel memories time and time again.

Yes, this is possible, really it is.


Introducing: Ready For Departure

A comprehensive travel planning and preparation workshop that will get you ready to travel wherever your wanderlust takes you, so your adventures are relaxing and enriching.

Years ago, when I first caught the travel bug, it wasn't all sunshine and smiles.

I had a busy life and holidays were for relaxing, but I soon realised I needed to carve some time out of my daily schedule before I travelled to get organised otherwise my travels were not going to be relaxing at all.

Back in those days, I missed flights, I lost luggage and was caught unawares. I made hotel bookings at the last minute that once ended up staying miles from civilisation, literally. I have forgotten items crucial to my trip, hello favourite sunglasses -what do you get when you realise too late that you've left your favourite sunglasses at home? Squinty-eyed photos, yes I have proof. Once on the first day of a holiday with a significant shopping itinerary, my credit card was declined and blocked, nope I didn't inform my bank I was going away. God to know that anti-fraud mechanisms do work though!

It didn't take me long to figure out that something had to change to make my travels memorable for the right reasons.

I started of using a packing list which I found really helpful. That spurred me on to looking at all aspects of my travel planning process and trying out lots of different ideas and techniques.

Eventually I came up with a repeatable solution to make the whole preparing for travel process and holidays smooth and simplified process.

I have used all that knowledge and experience to create a simple step by step system that takes you through your travel planning timeline. I have refined each step of the course during the many trips I have taken. Now, I invite you to join me as I share with you all that I've learnt, discovered and implemented on my travels so you too can get organised and

Ready For Departure.

Can't I just use a packing list?
Sure, you can. However a packing list helps you organise and remember what to pack. It won't help you use simple outfit packing formulas that work for every holiday. And there's more to getting organised to travel than what to put in your suitcase. Ready For Departure helps you plan all those aspects of your trip too.

You can get information online for just about anything these days, but that's not to say it will be easy to find or all in one place.
