CT  Sandra, what interested you in tour leading for Craig Travel?

SD  My good friend, Donna Rombough, is a tour leader for the company and after hearing her speak so positively about the travel, the people, the amazing places she has been, I was intrigued about Craig Travel.  I am thrilled to be starting on this journey.  Thanks to Donna and Craig for this opportunity.

CT   What specifically, in your career, may have prepared you for this position?

SD    I'm a people person; I truly like and enjoy meeting new people.  I have a solid background in leadership, mediation, conflict studies.  Problem solving and being able to be flexible is a solid personality trait that I have.  I have worked with people from all walks of life from heads of companies to many organizations and am comfortable accepting new situations.  I have very good organizational skills and always work towards the goal.... which is getting where we are going….with a smile.

CT   What has been your favourite destination so far and why?

SD   That's a tough one - loved Ireland for the people and the amazing driving.... the scenery was breathtaking and I can't think of another place that surprised me on every turn... but the coast of Italy staying in a  family run hotel was pretty close.

CT  What destinations are still on your bucket list and why?

SD  South America - there is so much history and amazing vista's; the Cook Islands - love the untouched beauty.

CT  Name 3 things that you find most rewarding about escorting groups.

SD  Meeting amazing people who love to travel and being part of their experience.  I love to experience new destinations.  I am thrilled to join a great family like Craig's that offers travellers the chance to see the world.

CT  Which group you have been assigned to lead?

SD  I will be escorting a fabulous Holland America Seafarer cruise February 19 – 29 sailing roundtrip Fort Lauderdale with stops at some of the Caribbean’s most beautiful islands.  Please join me!

CT   What are your hobbies, besides travelling? 

SD    I'm a new grandmother to two babies so… I love hanging out with babies.  I am a voracious reader, love to cook, love to ride my motorcycle to amazing places.  I love spending time at my cottage, the sound of the water and sand in my toes.  I enjoy writing, family, friends, gardening.  I’m a painter of watercolours and acrylics.  And if there is time, nothing beats great live music.
